Lei Chic’s Weekend Picks: 6 Stylish Ways to Spend Your Weekend
Here’s what Lei Chic is looking forward to this weekend.
What: Jewelry? Check. Clothing? Check. Desserts and coffee? Double check! Head to The Butik for another Fashion Friday event by Arts and Flavors Hawai‘i, where you can shop till you drop with 15 percent off the entire store, and 20 percent off if you bring an exclusive Arts and Flavors reusable tote. Vendors include Kira Hawai‘i, 19th and Whimsy, Blithe Bikinis, Pualani Soap Hawai‘i, and Chocolate and Vanilla Bakery. Tip: Head over now to @artsandflavorshi on Instagram and unlock more deals with its current post-and-tag campaign.
When: Friday, Sept. 18, 4–8 p.m.
Where: The Butik, 1067 Kapi‘olani Blvd., A3
Details: Check out @artsandflavorshi and #artsandflavors on Instagram.
What: In the wise words of Regina George, “Get in, loser, we’re going shopping.” Put aside old school rivalries and get into the school spirit with Honolulu Night Market’s new theme, “Homecoming.” There’s a fashion show by The Cut Collective at 8 p.m. and, meanwhile, a vendor for every clique:
The Sporty Girls: Confidance Clothing’s cute gym wear
The Beach Lovers: Jay Bird Arts’ mermaid-inspired artwork
The Fashionistas: Homecoming’s stylish women’s apparel, accessories and shoes
The Urbanistas: HiDose’s cool graphic tees
There’ll be food, of course, bringing us all together with refreshing slushies by Wicked HI Slush, fresh mini doughnuts by Pop Pop Donuts and bacon on a stick by Wild Candy Bacon. It’s OK, ’cause we’re on an all-carb diet.
When: Saturday, Sept. 19, 6–11 p.m.
Where: 449 Cooke St., Our Kaka‘ako
Details: Visit honolulunightmarket.com, #hnlnightmarket or download the Honolulu Night Market app, free on iTunes and Google Play.
Stike A Pose
What: If you’ve been following NYFW at all, you know the biggest buzz so far has been Madeline Stuart, an 18-year-old Australian model with Down Syndrome who rocked her runway debut this past Sunday, Sept. 13. See all her fab photos over at BuzzFeed, and keep an eye out for her new line of handbags by Evermade.
Details: See more NYFW replays at nyfw.com.
Oddles Of Doodles
What: Embrace your inner artist and hang with creative souls. With a voluntary $10 donation, you’ll get a commemorative Creative Arts Experience swag bag and be entered to win art by local artists, such as original Louis Pohl collagraphs (prints made with collagelike boards used as the printing plate). Mingle while you doodle and listen to the live sounds of Nate Hatico, Michael Chung and Brian Chang. Pūpū and drinks will be provided for your artistic pleasure.
When: Saturday, Sept. 19, 6–9 p.m.
Where: Louis Pohl Gallery, 1142 Bethel St.
Details: Call 799-9511 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
What: The end of September means 1) it’s hot, 2) the AC is blasting and 3) sweating has become the norm. Juice stand Wow Wow Lemonade’s grand opening in Hale‘iwa is just the thing to cool you off. We suggest you follow it at @wowwowlemonade on Instagram to check out its giveaways. The event kicks off with live music by Ron Artis and his family and, get this: $3 lemonade jar refills all weekend long, because when life gives you lemons … well, you know the rest.
When: Saturday, Sept. 19 6–9 p.m.
Where: 66-526 Kamehameha Highway, Hale‘iwa
Details: Call 943-3025 for more information.
Get Your Hats on Route 99
What: Calling all wanderlusters, nomads and voyagers: North Shore Embroidery’s flagship store Route 99 is running a global social media campaign called #Route99in99Nations. Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to shoot a photo with Route 99 gear at your travel destination—a selfie with the floral aloha embroidered hat, posing with a cute graphic tee, a subtle decal on a landmark. Tag your pic and get 50 percent off your next Route 99 purchase. At the time of this writing, Route 99 had 22 more nations to go to meet its 99 nations goal by Dec. 31 and, if it makes it, the store will donate at least $500 to a local nonprofit. Visit @route99hawaii on Instagram for deets, and see how it’s been featured in awesome locations like Israel, Denmark, South Africa and more.
