Leaving Town

Lei ChicDear Town,

OK, this may be hard for you to hear, but I need some space.

Sure, we’ve had some fun times together. And you’ve given me some of my fondest memories—like when I bought my very first Roberta Oaks sundress and that time we discovered my now favorite DND bikinis. But lately, I’ve been feeling trapped by your city limits, and I just can’t stop my wandering eye.

You see, there’s this new boutique opening in Pearl City tomorrow called House of Aria. I was instantly smitten when I heard about its flirty dresses by Indah, Audrey 3 + 1 and Everly. I’ve been swooning over its flowy tops by Collective Clothing and Final Touch, and have been crushing hard on its stock of sassy Wildfox Couture tees.

I mean, a woman has needs.

And with prices ranging from $15 to $80, including its great selection of handbags and jewelry–well, it’s just easier on my wallet than you are. Let’s face it, you can be pretty high-maintenance.

Sorry, Honolulu. I used to be a woman about town, but we’re just in different places right now.

House of Aria opens tomorrow. Waiau Center, 98-450 Kamehameha Hwy., Suite 3, Pearl City. 808.626.5982. For more info, visit
