I was just off a flight from Paris and needed to fight the jet lag, so headed down south (from San Francisco) to sunny San Jose’s Santana Row. Kendra Scott fashion jewelry was touring California with their airstream, and dropped by for a one day show. I wasn’t familiar with Kendra Scott previously, so was excited to check out their accessories and learn more about them. I was especially intrigued by their Color Bar in which you could design your own jewelry. You just pick out the stone and accessory style of choice, and voila, they make it right there for you. It’s a fun and quick way to create a unique, personalized piece that’s all your own. And, it’s very affordable with most price points in the $50-$75 range. I’m big on the power and energy of crystals and natural stones so was pleased to see some of my favorites including pyrite and rose quartz in the mix.
Just put on a tee and pair of denim and throw on one of these Kendra Scott necklaces and you’re good to go…
Nothing beats jet lag like a good dose of sun rays with that vitamin D and some exercise to get the blood pumping. Just remember to wear your daily sunscreen.
One also needs fuel to shop, so I grabbed a tasty lunch at Village Bistro – which is located smack dab in the center of Santana Row with its breezy courtyard seating. This is their Tomato Bruschetta with fresh mozzarella pearls, Franchessi bread, basil pesto, baby heirloom tomatoes and balsamic reduction.
This Phyllo Baked Brie isn’t the most photogenic, but was seriously satisfying with its mix of sweet and savory with caramelized apples and toasted almonds. I could not stop eating it.
Although the Kendra Scott airstream was a one-day visit, they will be opening a permanent store in Santana Row this year. They also have plans to open up in Walnut Creek and eventually in San Francisco.
Thank you, Santana Row for helping fight the jet lag. You definitely succeeded. I’ll see you again soon.
