Lighten Up


You still swear you saw John Mayer in the club last year. Too bad you spent a mini-eternity fumbling for your phone in your dark, messy purse and missed the chance to get photographic evidence.

And, yes, you’re still mad about that Chanel lipgloss you thought was safely put back in the side pocket.

Maybe your next It Bag should be as functional as it is fashionable − like one of the lighted purses from Solas Fashion. 

Clutches, shoulder bags, even tiny wristlets from the LA-based line all come with a built-in neon light that illuminates as soon as the bag is open. The light tube is sewn into the frame of the purse, automatically shuts off when the purse is closed, and runs on AA batteries zipped into a hidden pocket.

Making it easy to find your keys, phone, wallet, or anything else buried in the bottom of your bag.

Forget Mayer. This bag is love at first light.

Solas Fashion handbags are available at Split Obsession, Koko Marina Shopping Center in Hawai‘i Kai, 808.395.3380, and online at  www.solasfashion.com
