Best of Lei Chic: June 2014

In case you missed it, here are some of the top Lei Chic stories we published this month

Sustainable, Locally Designed Giftwrap 

The ecofriendly, locally printed wrapping paper by Maui-based Wrappily is not only a way better choice for the environment than your regular mass-produced sheets, its selection of patterns designed by local graphic designers is absolutely adorable. We recommend checking out the Andrew Mau line of prints, now available at Red Pineapple and Owens & Co.

Coral Beauty Buys 

Inspired by the HONOLULU Shops summer issue—now hot off the presses and available at kiosks around Waikiki—we reeled in a handful of beauty products in the season's It shade: coral. Go for some of the splurge-worthy treats we found or, if you’re looking to go luxe for less, try these drugstore deals. They’re all bursting with the stylish hue and perfect for adding a fresh pop of fun to your summer look.  To finish it off, check out this coral ModCloth style gallery for some fashion inspiration to go with your new beauty buys.


Middi Honolulu Boutique Opens 

We Are Iconic owners have company on little Waimanu Street now in the form of their friend’s store, Middi Honolulu. The new boutique has a similar effortless, upscale aesthetic, but with a focus on resort and beachwear and a more vibrant and print-focused color palette. Plus, its selection of tropical bikinis, hard-to-find brands and soft tanks are just in time for summer. Stay tuned for the grand opening, slated for Monday, Aug. 25.
