Maggie's Dress Shop - Georgia Coast

One thing is for sure about the south - people like to dress up. It's not at all uncommon to see linen dresses and seersucker suits across the aisle at church; and even the casual clothes seem a bit more colorful and coordinated than in other parts of the country. Maggie's has been selling women's finery on St. Simons Island for years. The turquoise building, arched window displays, and red geraniums are a true siren song for the shopper in anyone. :)

I love St. Simons! So many great things to paint and you've captured it so well!

Beautiful painting Laurel. I seem to remember that when I used to visit a family in Florida.
