East vs West mockup


Voilà, Clothes & Fashion’s first ever East Coast vs. West Coast style-off. I’m super psyched to have teamed up once again with Charlotte Russe and my blogger BFF Laura Lily to bring you these pictures! The idea was to get one dress and see how differently (or similarly) we could style it depending on our coast. Laura is in Los Angeles and I’m in New York Cit-ay! Be sure to stop by her blog to see how she rocked this awesome cutout dress- a big trend this Spring/Summer 2013 season! I love Laura’s look, especially because she has bare legs in the spring! We still have about another month to go before we can leave our houses that naked. I. cannot. wait.

Obviously, the East Coast is the best coast. Sure sure, in Cali you have the beach with the frozen water, the chill attitude and Hollywood stars. But in New York you have people who like to get things done quickly, lots of men in suits, and pretzels. The winning city is pretty obvious to me. Hello? Pretzels!

The first time I teamed up with Charlotte Russe (you better see the post here!) I showed you the most NYC place I could think of, and that I could bear to hang out in: 5th Avenue. To mix things up a bit I headed to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to show you how the other side lives. I try to avoid Brooklyn as much as possible, but it turns out it’s a great, deserted location for a photoshoot! Enjoy the Manhattan skyline. Let me know how many buildings you can identify!
