The store offers “a mix of everything,” Wahl said, including sleek, chic and boho-chic styles, as well as graphic tees, jeans and plus-size options. There are also handbags and some accessories.

“Everything from casual and comfortable clothes to wear at home or if you need something to wear for a wedding,” Wahl said, describing the clothing options available. taken into consideration what many other women like to wear.

I knew I wanted a really eclectic look, something funky,” she said. “So I found this wallpaper which is a play on Alice in Wonderland called Tea Time in Wonderland. When I saw it, I knew it was the one I wanted. I based everything else around that.
