Photobucket New dress - Charlotte Russe, jacket - Forever 21, shoes - Steve Madden, purse - Aldo, watch - NY&C.

Santana Row is one of my favorite places to go and hang out in the Bay Area. If you ever visit, you really need to check it out  The European based architecture, the delicious aromas drifting about from the many restaurants, often live music, fountains, cafe's, salons/boutiques and huge range of stores to shop at make it ever so inviting. 

The night life is quite exquisite as well, (although everything closes up rather early... 12 am if I remember correctly) as there is dancing, drinking and socializing with a lot of beautiful people aging anywhere between 21 and 40/50 I believe. You can try out Straits, Sino, Rosie McCann's and Blowfish. It is a very classy place to find or have a date in my opinion. I used to go a lot when I was single or just starting to date my boyfriend Mike. But it gets pricey, and saving money is always good :)

You'll definitely want to dress nice when you go here, for any time of day really. I felt like this lacy dress was pretty perfect for a Santana Row dinner at Pizza Antica, though I dressed it down with my light denim jacket from Forever 21. This is one of my many examples of an outfit that makes me feel great but was fairly inexpensive (dress - $30, jacket - $20, shoes - $70, purse - $30) oh and my non-designer watch for $20!

Oh and yes, I do think my lavender polish goes with everything, haha.

  5. This is such a cute outfit. I love that you paired your lace dress with a jean jacket and those colors go so well together. I was just at Santana Row last weekend and I did an outfit shot there too =) I wonder if we went around the same time! Hope you're having a fab weekend!

  13. Love that peach or pink? dress on you Jess! It goes pretty nicely with the denim jacket. I wish the F21 here in Canada carries more styles compared to the states :(

    Guess it's nice to go to those pricey restaurants for special occasions cuz it does add up quite much!

  25. That watch looks just like the Michael Kors one! I'll have to check NY&C out...I didnt know they had such stylish watches! :) love the lacey dress, cool back cut out as well! I love that jacket because its like ajean jacket and a blazer mixed into one :) it's slightly more polished. Don't you love when your wearing an outfit that was so cheap? It always makes me so happy :D

  39. Santana Row is one of my favorite places in the Bay! It's just a very classy, lovely place to walk around and shop. :) Strait's is actually one of my faves; we also have one here at the Westfield downtown! And you're looking gorgeous as usual. Love it!

  48. Beautiful lace dress, even the cut-out on the back makes it both sexy and sweet. But what I really want is the denim jacket. I've been on the lookout for a similar jacket that wouldn't add bulk to my already broad shoulders and arms. Gotta keep on looking...
