shop update: east coast / west coast

The first dress in this week's shop preview is from Terry Tall New York, and the second dress is from Miss Elliette California.  And I do think each dress kind of represents her respective birthplace!  The Terry Tall dress is chic and serious, with its streamlined shape and navy blue color--yet those bows and polka dots give it a touch of playfulness; you could totally see this dress on a Boston or New York street.  And the Miss Elliette is just flat out frothy fun in pastel colors--so California!

Now I live in flyover country (what both coasts--natives to them, anyway--tend to think of the rest of the United States), but a large part of my heart will always be East Coast.  And I think I could categorize each of this week's items into either the East or West Coast.  How about you?  Is your style more East or West--or someplace else altogether?

All items coming to the shop over the next week.  (And don't forget, today is the LAST DAY of the Bier und Schnitzel Sale!)
