Santa Barbara is a "land of duality — chaparral and chardonnay, students and seniors, ocean and mountains, classic beauty and cutting edge" for Erica Brown, who feels that her new boutique, Dylan Star, offers women's clothing, accessories and gift items that will appeal to shoppers who are looking for fashions at affordable prices. "That's my main thing — affordable prices — T shirts for $20 and dresses and jackets for $120. Everything is under $175," said Mrs. Brown, 34, a Santa Barbara native and graduate of San Marcos High School. "I know the Santa Barbara look, which is dressy casual — we like denim with cute flats, fun hats, Bohemian tops — clothing with character that is easy to wear."
