I agree that good fashion is everywhere, as well as bad fashion.
For instance people in LA think that they are all the rage...so therefore that makes the entire west coast fashionable? Take a look at Fresno and I doubt you'll find incredible shopping there. I'm sure that there are other places in the state of NY that are less than desirable on the fashion front. I'm just saying that even if you lack the resources (which fortunalty is not the case in Chicago) there are plenty of ways to be creative...even if you only shop at friggin WalMart.
I guess I'm just defensive of it b/c I live for fashion and work in the industry.
I think also that there is a great amount of eclectic dressing going on in LA and NY b/c most people there work in the Arts of some sort and it's well accepted to dress however one wishes. In many other areas (such as the mid-west), many work in very buisness type setting where the dress is expected to be much more uniform, tailored, and traditional. But when the weekend comes...I like to think that us Chicagoans look foreward to mixing it up and expressing ourselves in the way that we know best...STYLE.
However, I certainly agree that NYC and LA know how to do it up...I love the fashion there, Don't get me wrong.
