Style face-off: Toronto vs. Dallas

A tongue-in-cheek side-by-side comparison of style in two great cities. Have fun!



Very little, au naturel Lots! Especially this airbrushed effect that looks so artificial. Stepford Wives, anyone?


What hair? Big Southern hair. Dolly Parton’s wannabes.

Fashion trends

None really stands out, except in shops. Or ski boots and parkas in winter. Or hijabs and saris in certain areas (not really a fashion trend, I know, but that’s what women wear) Women follow trends to a T (whether they should is a different kettle of fish). Some really shouldn’t. Middle aged women do like their Capri pants.

Cosmetic surgery

None Fake boob and Botox central


Natural Long, fake talons


Subdued. Black is a favourite, especially in the colder months. Lots of pink

Summer footwear of choice

Teens seem to favour Uggs (beats me why) Flip flops galore (all year round)


Small, discrete (if any) Big and bold

    1. Ana

      De nada!

  2. Wendy

    Hilarious! I’ve never been to Toronto, but as a true southern girl, yes, to the ubiquity big hair and trends to a T. Que horror!

    1. Ana

      Thanks for stopping by! Glad you enjoyed the post :)

    Muuuuy bueno! No he estado en ninguno de estos dos lugares, pero pega perfectamente con el preconcepto que una tiene! En cierta forma se podría aplicar al contraste entre los estilos aquí en el este (granjeril) de Holanda y Buenos Aires 😀
    A cuál grupo pertenecerías vos? jeje

    Nice post dear, you have done good comparison between the two..Well i have never been to Toronto and Dallas. But whenever i will go to these places i will definitely look for these differences..

    So so true. Except that teens in Dallas wear Uggs with tiny little nike shorts from Fall till Spring. Not summer of course. And it’s a complete contradiction to wear Uggs with sports shorts. They do it anyways. It’s ridiculous.

  6. Ana

    Kacie, you’re right!

    Hey Ana! I’ve enjoyed reading this comparison. Big southern hair sounds really peculiar :)

    1. Ana

      Thanks! It was fun to write so I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    It’s pretty remarkable how different two cities on the same continent can be. Everything is bigger in Texas.

    1. Ana

      Indeed! Everything is bigger in Texas :0. Thanks for stopping by.
