Here Kitty, Kitty

Last year certainly felt like the Year of the Tiger — with the cat finally out of the bag about a certain golfer’s tail chasing and cat-and-mouse playing ways.

But here in the islands, we know that February 14 marked the start of the real Year of the Tiger. And to celebrate, Lei Chic’s rounded up a few fashionable finds in honor of the cool cat, to help you roar into 2010 in style.

Lei ChicThe Cat’s Meow
A tigress doesn't change her stripes—at least, not when they're as chic as the ones adorning Fighting Eel's orange and black tie-dyed Ulla Tunic. Made of a super-soft modal and spandex blend, this comfy tee is loosely cut with a wide neckline that can be worn as a deep scoop or draped sexily off one shoulder. It even boasts hidden side pockets to boot! Pair it with skinny jeans or rock it with leggings for a look that's straight off the catwalk. Available at the Fighting Eel Showroom, 47 N. Hotel Street, Chinatown, 808.524.1472 and online here.
