6 Stylish Weekend Options
Lei Chic’s guide to the weekend’s best events.
What: We always want to dive into the swimmingly good selection of apparel at Rebecca Beach in Royal Hawaiian Center, so we’re extra jazzed for the epic shop sesh to come this weekend at the brand’s Kaimukī space. The annual LSPACE Pop Up Shop is the perfect place to score your go-to suit for the rest of summer: think saucy, strappy details, bright, beach-worthy colors and perky prints.
When: Saturday, May 16, 9 a.m.–3 p.m.
Where: 1120 12th Ave., third floor
Details: Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
What: We are all about the graphic tee trend (Finally, we can unearth our panda tops from middle school!) so the latest Vivienne Westwood release of limited-edition graphic tees and sweatshirts has got us super stoked. The house pulled iconic images for the mini line, including an adorable kitty, provocative lips and a sword-brandishing arm for casual statement pieces that are sure to draw attention.
Where: 2365 Kalākaua Ave.
Details: Finally. A much more stylish alternative to this shirt.

What: Being a girl is hard. Shaving your legs. Getting your eyebrows done. Getting your—you know—tidied. Some days, you just want to quit and make the world deal with it (preach, sister!). Or you could take advantage of European Wax Studio’s Pearl City opening and have someone do it for you … for free. Yep, in honor of the grand opening, the studio is offering a weekend of 100-percent complimentary services. Each guest can book up to three services (lip, full-body, bikini or Brazilian included).
When: Friday, May 15 through Monday, May 18, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
Where: 1000 Kamehameha Highway, Pearl City
Details: Book your appointment at 454-2140.
A Spa Odyssey
What: Eye creams, juice cleanses, no-carb diets. The world is obsessed with slowing aging, at any cost. The latest fountain of youth you won’t regret trying? The brand new Dior Beauty Boutique at Neiman Marcus’s spa room. In the tidy little spa room (just the right size for one), guests who purchase products from Dior’s luxe, anti-aging line, L’or De Vie, are treated to a complimentary facial treatment by one of Dior’s highly trained aestheticians. 45 minutes of relaxing, rejuvenating you-time—that also keeps you looking younger? Sign us up, please.
Where: Neiman Marcus, Ala Moana Center
Details: Call 951-8887 to schedule an appointment.
What: Mad Max: Fury Road is open everywhere starting tonight! Can you tell we’re excited? Tom Hardy + a slew of top models + Charlize Theron + festival-esque desert setting = we already have our tickets reserved. But while we’re definitely expecting a good amount of action, melodrama and sun-kissed faces, we weren’t exactly expecting a lot of feminism. This article from Flavorwire, however—the perfect pre-show read for tonight’s big viewing—is giving us one more reason to see the blockbuster: Apparently, it’s pro-woman, pro-victim and pro-empowerment. We’ll take it.
Details: Open in theaters everywhere tonight.
Sip, Sip, Hooray
What: Living in Hawai‘i, we drink a lot of rum, making us, logically, rum experts. Put that experience to good use for the Rum Scrum Cocktail Contest from Deep Island Hawaiian Rum. They are asking members of the public for the recipe to the best (we know one of you has it!) rum cocktail out there, whether it’s from an experienced mixologist or novice home bartender. Your submission must include a full recipe for one cocktail (including no more than 2 oz. alcohol, and with Deep Island Hawaiian Rum as the main ingredient), a completed application and a high-resolution photo of the cocktail.
When: Email submissions no later than Sunday, May 31, 11:59 p.m.
Where: Submit at deepislandrum.com
Details: Email email@example.com for more information.
