Sneak Peek into a Different World
A Girl from The Big City

By Brenna, age 15, New York

Yellow taxis, crowded subways, crowded sidewalks, shopping galore. Can you guess where I am? New York, baby, born and bred. As we all know, New York is the style setter for the U.S. - no ifs, buts, or maybes. So I'm here to school you on what's fly and what should fly away.

First and foremost, your sneakers speak for you in New York. Now I don't know about anywhere else, but I know out here your kicks are a priority, followed by your outfit, accessories, and of course, a hairstyle. Pretty much anything goes, as long as you know you look good and hold your head high walking down the street. Metallic hightops have taken our 5 boroughs by storm - everyone makes it their own.

New York is kind of like a fashion class - it's the same subject, but no two people's creations ever look the same. If you've visited New York and don't really understand where I'm coming from in terms of style, then hands down your weren't in the right spots. Not that I'm saying other states don't have style, but when you see someone from New York in your state, you KNOW they're from New York.

Music is a big thing in the Big Apple. As we all know, the birthplace of hip hop is the South Bronx, though some people who lack style claim "Hip Hop Is Dead". I'm here to tell you it's not. It just reinvented itself. It's not how it used to be, but it's evolving into something different. It's taking the world by storm. So once again, HiP HOP iS NOT DEAD.

Now that I've cleared that up, electronics are hot this season too - PSP's, Nintendo, Wii's Blackberrys, Sidekicks. Sure they can be a bit pricey, but you'll be a hit in school.

Now I'm from the hood. I would like to speak on that, but I was informed that some people from different states may not be hip to the style. But if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me using the comment form at the bottom of the page. I'll give you advice on anything. As far as I'm concerned we're all sisters. Any questions or problems you may have feel free to hit me up.

And in joining this magazine, I would also like the readers to school me on what's hot in their hometowns. So I wanna hear from you!

Your sister in New York,
Brenna ♥
