        So what exactly is "Northern?"

        If I lived in Northern Texas, California or Florida could I tell the people who...

        The high stepping thing
        by Ayita16
        When i went up to hollister i saw a style in southern cloth that i have never seen before. Its the step where u dance on your toes. Personally to me i think it looks horrible and just too bouncy. Well i hope ya'll know what i am talking about.
        Whats your opinion on it?
