The Beauty Bash at Santana Row took place on May 7, 2014. I was stationed at accessory store “Jest Jewels” and had so much fun! I met a lot of readers and local bloggers. During the event, I was flattered at how many people complimented my dress! The best part about it, I bought this dress on a huge discount! It is currently well over 50% off. I always love buying something on sale; especially when the discount off the original price is huge!

I love this dress because not only can I wear it to an event such as the Beauty Bash, I can pair more formal accessories with it and wear it to a fundraising lunch or daytime theater event. Love that!

Have you scored any deeply discounted sale items lately? If so, please share!

Thank you again to everyone who came out to support “Dress for Success San Jose” at the Santana Row Beauty Bash! Without you, the event would not have been so successful in raising much-needed funds for the charity. 🙂

The Santana Row Beauty Bash took place on May 7, 2014 and it was a huge success! The event benefited local charity group “Dress for Success San Jose.” The sold-out event attracted a large crowd who enjoyed shopping discounts, appetizers, dessert, wine and champagne. Guests also received a fabulous Santana Row swag bag! Love that!

The Beauty Bash at Santana Row also offered free tips and tricks from local fashion editors, bloggers and stylists. I was one of the Guest Stylists and I was stationed at accessory boutique “Jest Jewels.” It was so much fun talking about fashion trends, ways to incorporate color trends into one’s wardrobe, and meeting so many local readers! I also connected with other local bloggers which was amazing!

If you are local to the San Francisco Bay Area, definitely check out “Jest Jewels” at Santana Row for amazing, on-trend accessories at moderate, to really affordable pricing! I found so many beautiful pieces while I was there; I need to return to shop!
