Not really, actually. I live in Phoenix but despite the hot temperatures, I tend to stay pretty chilly all the time, hence my ever-present sweater.

Yes and no. I'm originally from Philadelphia; thus, my style is more East Coast influenced. However, since moving to L.A., I'm wearing flip-flops WAY more than I've ever worn back home.

how can it not? Especially climate-wise. You aren't going to wear a lot of parkas in Arizona, but they make sense in Wisconsin, where I live.

Nah, England really inspires my style.

Yes and no! Sometimes when I look at my closet I can't seem to describe my style in one word; I am a girly girl yet a tomboy. I think living in LA has had a lot to do with it. :) The city always inspires me; there's so much diversity.

I agree with Skigurl. I live in a cold climate so I own a lot of cashmere and scarves. And some places cannot seem to handle high fashion, where I live most people wear jeans and sweatshirts everywhere. So they think I'm really "dressed up" because my casual wear is nicer looking than when they actually dress up. :p

I would have to say yes. I live in NY and a lot of people are very stylish. So you can't help wanting to look stylish also.

I totally agree with you skigurl, having spent 2 years in the Uk got to me to learn a bit about British fashion and to try and dress the part, although I still adapted everything I wore to my own style and personality, and even wore a beret every now and then when I felt homesick. I like the fact that each place kind of has its own identity, even in fashion! :)

to a degree - for one, when living in colder climates, you must dress for warmth which includes more layering and cute scarves and coats and boots...but in terms of style for the city, yes i think it makes a difference...some cities are more fashion forward whereas others aren't and if you dress in haute couture in certain places you look silly...i definitely take chances in certain locations versus others
