New York gals are chic, yet nonchalant when it comes to fashion.

LA style is all about movie star glamour – brand names won’t go astray, as won’t anything short and figure hugging. If you had to choose some accessories to complete your look, they would be an It Bag, a miniature dog and convertible for cruisin' down Rodeo Drive.
