I am in NYC more than you think, and I've seen it from the natives.
I've also seen it in Florida, all over the South, the West, etc, etc, etc.....
The only reason you dont see it is you seem to be a bit busy bashing the Midwest.
Stop with the attitude already.
You're making yourself look like a stereotypical New Yorker.
I'm a west coast girl and as much as I LOVE LA, I have to agree that New Yorkers look fantastic. I see outfits in NYC that blow my mind. West coast is always more relaxed and bohemian, the South tends to be traditional, and the midwest is a very odd mix. It's not because of the people, it's just because fashion trends don't reach stores in the midwest until they've been beaten to death in NYC. NYC has more access to great clothing. There's a reason LA Fashion Week is a joke and the midwest doesn't even have one!

Nothing, it's more the personality type I associate with them. If there is a girl who isn't focused on fashion and constantly looking good I don't really care whatever she wears.

Besides, I'm probably in the minority. It seems most men prefer women to look all dressy and 'girly'.

My husband feels the same. He sees women who follow the fashion trends, make up trends, hair trends, purse and shoe trends as high maintenance and he doesn't like high maintenance and I don't have the patience for it.

When I worked in an office I had more dresses and more shoes but I was never a fashion plate although I think I looked pretty good.

Now, my hubby and I work together, whether its construction jobs, remodeling jobs, or land developing. We do it all for ourselves so we don't deal with clients. I live in jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers. I like to dress pretty sometimes but it is senseless in my lifestyle. And no hubby wouldn't want me to...he also likes the "no" clothes, lol.

I also don't have the patience for the girlie routines...heck I can't even sit still long enough for my nails to dry I also must have missed the female class about shoes and purses. I hate them, lol.

It's a good thing there are so many kinds of people out there, we all fit in somewhere

St Louis has a Fashion Week.........we also have these things that we get into and fly through the air,(sounds unbelievable, I know) and we actually buy clothing in NYC, and even Paris and Rome.

That's lovely and all but much like LA fashion week, it's NOT the equivalent of NYC. Just like NYC is still not quite like Milan or Paris. You're not going to find a couture atelier or a large design house in St. Louis. It's like comparing apples to oranges.

I've had some fabulous custom stuff made in STL.

My husband and I like to go to the symphony. We always get dressed up when we go. We've been in Dallas, San Francisco, Seattle. When we went to our first symphony performance in Oregon... we dressed up.

We were really shocked to see what people were wearing. There were people there wearing birkenstocks, shorts, hoodie sweaters and jeans, also - prom dresses, ball gowns, steampunk outfits. Everything you can imagine.

It was almost as fun people watching as it was listening to the music!

I'm not an expert on STL, I'm pretty well versed in fashion though, considering the time I've studied it and worked in it. This was not an attack on STL, although you seem to falsely think it is. My comments were merely statements regarding the flow of fashion.
Clearly you are not well versed in couture, since "custom-made stuff" is NOT an appropriate synonym for couture and suggesting that it is is disrespectful to the seamstresses that devote their entire life to the art and technique.

I am no fashion diva...but I do dress appropriately. I am shocked how some people dress when they go out

I also love to people watch...it can be quite entertaining

I prefer casual attire. Sneakers, jeans, T-shirt, no jewelry or makeup.

Just plain and simple.
