Shop Culture

A personal shopper would be great at this time of year – someone who knows all the best stores and what they carry, who stocks the hard-to-find labels, and where you can pick up really one-of-a-kind items.

Not in the budget? Then get the next best thing – a hot-off-the-press copy of “The Ultimate Guide to Shopping on O‘ahu” by Honolulu Magazine executive editor and shopping-ista Kathryn Drury Wagner.

his 185-page shopping companion – compact enough to fit in your Louis Vuitton Eva clutch – features more than 200 of the best places to shop, where to find deals and which stores provide the best customer service.

You know, the most vital information.

Each chapter points out specific style needs, from the best shoe selection to stores that specialize in beauty products. There’s even a chapter devoted entirely to local designers such as Fighting Eel, Kealopiko and Mu‘umu‘u Heaven.

From hard-to-find maternity boutiques to hidden vintage secrets, this book lists it all, including insider tips on regular sales, parking and web resources (including Lei Chic, on page 13.)

Because you never get tired of talking shop.

“The Ultimate Guide to Shopping on O‘ahu” will be available Friday December 12 wherever books are sold and online at Lei Chic readers can get free shipping by using the promo code LEICHIC.
