Plucky Star
It's hard to believe Kara Laricks, the winner of NBC's "Fashion Star," nearly got eliminated after the first round for making... a necktie. Now she has a $6 million deal for three capsule collections, available online. Our picks: a tuxedo-inspired collared shirt and red pleated shorts from H&M, sleeveless black jumpsuit from Macy's, and slim white shift dress with nude leather insets from Saks Fifth Avenue.
Where: H&M, Macy's, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Shell Out
For one night only, enjoy fresh, succulent oysters flown in from the Pacific Northwest. Vino Chef Keith Endo prepares them three ways: raw with tomato, Maui onions and chili pepper water; baked with crab and lemon-basil aioli; and deep-fried with a panko crust and roasted red bell pepper sauce.
When: Tonight. First seating at 5:30 p.m.
Where: Vino, Restaurant Row.
Details: $11.50 for three oysters. Wine and champagne pairings available. Call (808)524-8466 for reservations.
