6 Stylish and Fun Things to Do This Weekend

Lei Chic's guide to the weekend's best events.


Published:

 

Shop

Rio Cool

What: June is here, which means it’s time to stock up your ’kini collection, stat. Fresh Café and San Lorenzo Bikinis have got your back. This Saturday, the local swim brand will be debuting its new Bahia collection with a pop-up at the downtown Fresh Café location. Check out the new digs, shop for swim beauties to your heart’s content and, as an added treat, bedazzle your bod with fun, flashy temporary tattoos to give your next bare-all beach day an extra glimmer. Next stop: the ocean.
When: Fresh Café, 1111 Nu‘uanu Ave.
Where: Saturday, June 5, 6–10 p.m.
Details: Call 734-0630 for more information.

 

Watch

Lady in Red

What: Where the millenials at? From the description of Lee Tonouchi’s latest play, Echoes of Dat Red Guitar, there’s a lot our generation will be able to commiserate with. This darkly humorous piece follows a smart-but-motivationally-challenged (at least that’s what our elementary teacher used to call it) dude who lives at home and then gets a job at a state office. When furloughs come a’knocking, though, something’s got to give. A little close to home, yes. On our list of must-sees, absolutely.
When: Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6, 8 p.m.
Where: Kumu Kahua Theatre, 46 Merchant St.
Details: $5–$20 here. For show times later in the month, visit kumukahua.org.

Shop

Top of the World

What: If you haven’t heard of these two gals, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, well, you live in a magical world where the Kardashians aren’t everywhere. And you’re missing out, because their latest project is one you won’t want to miss, a mini collection for UK retailer Topshop that is so summer we absolutely need it right now. Think tropical prints, a floral maxi jumpsuit that is to die for, denim cutoffs and peasant blouses, aka swoon-worthy, fun-in-the-sun essentials.
Where: topshop.com
Details: Of course Kendall and Kylie modeled these bad boys for the lookbook. Duh.

 

Attend

It’s A Stretch

What: Getting motivated to work out is so hard. Would you feel more motivated if your workout studio was serving up small bites, drinks, prizes and specials? At the Pilates O Ka La one-year-anniversary party, you’ll find just that. Sip, snack and mingle while you plan out how you’ll get to healthy and toned heaven for less, thanks to some product and session specials that are available exclusively at the event. Motivation, here we come.
When: Saturday, June 6, 3–4:30 p.m.
Where: 3150 Monsarrat Ave., Suite 202
Details: Call 772-3172 for more information.

 

 

Read

Dot Even Think About It

What: We just discovered the Kate Spade blog Behind the Curtain, and we are obsessed, as it’s as full of little treasures as you’d expect from the girly brand. Hum-drum computer wallpaper making you glum? Spruce things up with this adorable, free download. Pretty, cheerful dots are a fun way to usher in summer—even if you’re stuck at your desk. While you’re waiting for it to download (OK, so it will only take a second, but we’re looking for excuses here), read the blog post 10 Things You Don't Know About Flamingos. It’s way more important than that work memo, especially after Anna Kendrick's adorable flamingo-themed short film for Kate Spade made these long-necked birds our new favorite animal.
Where: katespade.com
Details: Last month’s free downloadable background? Animal print—and it’s still available, so pounce on it!

 

Shop

Double Trouble

What: You are already stressing about Father’s Day. You need some (retail) therapy to sort that out. If you can’t wait for our Father’s Day gift guide (stay tuned throughout the next few weeks!) head over to Nordstrom this Saturday for a couple of fun events that will kill two birds with one stone: achieving accessories-shopping bliss for you, and a cute, homemade gift for Dad. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., head to the second floor and make a super cool picture frame magnet for pop—then fill it with one of the cutest pics of the two of you. Reward yourself after with a she + lo handbag line by Kailua-born Laura Darrah at the release even from 2 to 4 p.m. We already gushed about the new collection, and now you can ask her about her business and style secrets, do some shopping and enjoy the DJ and champagne. Plus, three words: gift with purchase.
When: Father’s Day workshop from 10 a.m.–2 p.m., she + lo event on Saturday, June 6, 2–4 p.m.
Where: Nordstrom, Ala Moana Center
Details: Magnet while supplies last. Visit sheandlo.com to check out the whole line.
