an observation

My biggest style inspirations are from what models wear off-duty. I've always wondered how they achieve such a "I-look-this-cool-and-I-don't-even-try" look, and I think I finally figured out how. Most models live in New York, Paris and London, which are the majority of the time, cold-weathered cities.  In cold weather, you can layer like crazy. You want to be warm and cozy, plus in NY you walk everywhere, so you also want to be comfortable. You can't do these things as easily in southern California. The cooler days, sure, but the coldest it gets here is like 50 degrees Fahrenheit.  And there's only so much we can do in denim cutoffs and sundresses. We try though, boy do we try (the few hip of us, fairly successfully).
