Last night we went out to celebrate my good friend's 25th birthday! We grabbed some dinner on Santana Row and enjoyed drinks under the heat lamps out on the patio. I wore a black gathered shoulder jersey dress and layered up a couple tribal and multi-stranded coin necklaces.

I love layering necklaces. The more the better sometimes!

Large, dolman sleeved dresses and tops work best when opposed by something slim-fitting (or that shows more leg) below the waist. Strappy heels reflect detailed shoulders on the dress.
