Jumpin Junkanoo.

Before I used this vibrant pink nail color, I had no idea what a jumpin Junkanoo was . . . so I googled it, in case I was missing something. Sure enough, I was! A Junkanoo is a big street party with dancing, costumes, bell and whistles held on islands of and around The Bahamas. Sounds exciting (like Mardi Gras maybe?), and similar to the excitement I felt on a recent shopping spree at Santana Row. Speaking of pink, I revisited one of my old favorites, Pink Stripes. This cute little boutique is owned by a fellow Banana Slug, who just happens to have great taste. 

If you're on the lookout for the perfect little dress or vying for something unique, this is your stop. And now they feature a vintage section with some amazing designer pieces. I was lucky enough to snag these insane ALC lambskin shorts.  I tell you, I'm in love, and can't wait to wear them.  Endless possibilities!

One thing's for sure, I'm not letting as much time pass before my next visit.
