Welcome to the “Disneyland of women’s shopping” in L.A! L.A. is the hub of fashion in the west coast. It is where many of the world styles start. On our last day in LA, my husband was talking about taking me and my mother in law to another attraction before we finally leave for our cruise. To my surprise, he mentioned shopping (which sounds strange coming from him). He said there is another attraction in LA called Santee Alley. They sell all kinds of clothing there and knock off brands. The place looks average and not clean in some areas but they have any style of clothes you can think off.
They have stores that sell sexy stylish lingerie, fancy dresses, cool jeans. My heart was pounding with excitement as we parked in one of the parking areas walking distance from the famous alley. As soon as we walk outside, I started seeing shops and women carrying plastic bags full of clothes that they bought. They have all kinds of beautiful stuff that women love. Oh my gosh! I was so happy to be there. We started going to the alley and looking at different style of dresses and summer outfits. I bought myself a pair of simple 3 inch heels shoes that was comfortable to wear. I also found a dress with a nice textile, stylish and quite elegant. I bought another cotton acid wash daytime dress. I bought another darker acid wash long sleeve shirt paired with a long skirt. It was a great feeling to be able to shop for goods that is rare to find. And for sure I wont be able to find those in Colorado. In a store called my secret lingerie. I snuck away to buy a pair of sexy lingerie hoping to surprise my husband. Wow. It was very sexy red, lace criss-crossing the body to reveal just enough to drive a man crazy. The lingerie has a decent quality and not poorly made, a great deal for the price you pay.
I am so delighted that my husband took me there. Santee alley made my LA trip fulfilling.

1. Wear flat shoes.
2. Shoe early at 9am before it gets too hot and crowded.
3. The nasty bathroom are blocks away so it is better to use the toilet before going there. They also make you pay for .50 cents and it is gross looking toilet.
4. You can bargain if you think the price is quite high.
5. Do not make up your mind in buying the first nice clothing you see. There might be better option along the way.
