I stand by what I said and no I don't find Houston to be as fashion forward or trendy.
No its not a fashion forward city, but the folks I hang around with know how to dress very well and are trendy. Houston is not that pretentious like the other three so I guess most people think folks out here cant dress, but that's not true. I go to Galleria just about every Saturday and most folks show up and try to show out...LOL. Even at my job, people dress very well, which is surprising.

I agree with Southernboy, I don't think Atlanta is that much more fashionable than Houston. Most folks in Houston that I spend majority of my time with are trendy and heavy shoppers (without even knowing), shopping and dressing are important, at least with my circle of friends.

To be honest the only real store that actually stands out that Houston is missing is a Bloomingdale's, outside of that its pretty much as wash...ohh and the Galleria is way better than that dated Lennox Mall, there's actually no mall in the South quite like it...(with the exception of North Park - Dallas).

Let alone the most you've ever seen? And you live in Georgia? Really? I am trying to think of where you might get a Southern vibe but all I can think is maybe extreme outskirts areas like Florida City, Loxahatchee.... Belle Glade, Clewiston, and Fort Pierce/PSL are trailer parkish/ white trash but they are far out of core South Florida metro. Davie used to have the reputation of redneck years ago but now it's filled with upper middle class suburban developments and expensive ranch homes with a more rural vibe ( for South Florida).. Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) lives out there. I just don't see much Southern culture in South Florida.. Even most of the poor white ( some might be seen as trashy) people that I know are originally from the NE and Midwest and not stereotypical racist southern white trash. I know there's the chilli cook off each year that has a redneck motif but that's about the extent I've seen in Broward/Palm Beach... Saying Miami Dade is Southern is laughable.
Even though this is completely off topic, I do agree with you! Still trying to wrap my head on how some folks actually think Miami (Dade County) is southern..its only geographically southern to me.

Do you mean dated in terms of age, appearance, retail selection, etc.? For what it's worth, there have been some recent renovations at Lenox. http://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/r...enovation.html

Nice update. Really I'm speaking in terms of appearance, the mall looks dated and its pretty small compared to malls here in Houston. Sometimes it can be over crowded which makes the shopping experience not so great. The Houston Galleria is also in the process a major redue, Saks will be opening a major flag ship store here.

With this project and the River Oaks project (which not far from the Galleria), Houston is going to leap ahead of Atlanta in terms of shopping.

Hmmm...I don't really think it's all that dated myself, especially after the renovations. But yes, it's a popular mall and can get crowded on the weekends in particular.

Lenox itself is sizable, but instead of undergoing a huge expansion, Phipps was built across the street so it has whatever Lenox doesn't for the most part.

Well, compared to the malls here it is.

Well then I'd say Houston's malls are the exception and not the norm. I don't find Lenox dated compared to malls like the Mall at Millenia in Orlando, SouthPark Mall in Charlotte, Pentagon City Mall in suburban DC, or Cherry Hill Mall in Cherry Hill, NJ myself.

And they probably all look dated compared to Buckhead Atlanta, which just opened and will be Atlanta's most high end shopping destination.

You're late to the party.

And isn't "south" first and foremost a geographic designation?
