Erica Brown opens new boutique

With our tony town’s main rue, State Street, having a record high of 38 empty storefronts in July, Santa Barbara resident Erica Brown is determined to buck the trend.

She is opening her first retail boutique, Dylan Star, inside of Salon U, owned by crimper Michael Romo, at State and Islay.

The store is an expansion on her careers in hair styling, fashion merchandising, and photography.

“I have loved the art of making somebody feel good in their own skin,” says Erica. “I think everyone deserves to feel good about themselves.

“We all work hard for our money. Shopping should be special fun.”

Dylan Star opens on Sunday, September 16, with complimentary tacos and margaritas, and music by DJ Flea. The event will be the first of several themed nights that she intends to instigate, including several pop-ups to highlight local designers as well as men’s clothing lines.

This is It

The former Hot Springs Road estate of Grammy-winning singer Kenny Loggins is up for grabs for $4.4 million.

The 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 3-story 3,974-sq-ft house on three acres was built in 1981.
