How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk (in Fashion)

(Source: The New York Times)The New York Times survey exploring the way in which we speak and how that maps into where we’re from sparked some discussion at StyleBistro as it relates to fashion and beauty. This survey alone is not only is a great icebreaker for combating the awkward when-chit-chat-isn’t-enough-silence during family holiday gatherings, but also acts as a great springboard to discuss other topics the survey didn’t necessarily cover….like, you know, clothes and makeup. The one question we loved the most (below) had to do with…what else, shoes!
