The Missed List – July 2012

Is it us or is summer just flying by?

Kids are already going back to school. Our favorite TV shows are buzzing about their returns (we still can't get over who's leaving Grey's Anatomy). The U.S. men's gymastics team finished fifth in the team finals.

Oh, wait. Wrong fall…

Nevertheless, you'll want to prepare yourself for the upcoming season. That means catching up on your Lei Chics and finding out what's changed since you first saw them.

Because these finds are definitely worth falling for.


Lei Chic
Adult Swim
You don't need to show a lot of skin, or have a body like a Victoria's Secret model, to look like a sexy beach babe. Suzanna Kuhlemann's latest round of 1979 Swimwear does the work for you, with subtle shaping details like studier linings and removable cups. If you aren't able to shop during Hifi COOP's limited hours, 1979 is also available at Hifi's pop-up shop inside Surf Line Hawaii through August 11.
The water's fine so jump right in.
Lei Chic Town Haul
Community, Downtown Honolulu's newest boutique, is settling right in. Its Butter London nail polishes, Ola skincare products and tribal FEED pouches are flying out the door. Plus, the store now carries Umee dresses and Aloha shirts, sweet Hanky Panky bralettes, and edgy skull bangles by a local artist so underground, the line doesn't even have a name.
It's about time you did a little Community service.
Lei Chic Draw Something
Doodlipoop creator Kelli Ann Harada's whimsical designs always make us chuckle, and her new Surf Puppy and Hibiscus Kitty tees and totes (just added this morning!) are no exception. An added bonus: Lei Chic readers get 15 percent off all purchases with the code LEICHIC through August 15. You might want to send her a thank you note.
This deal is no joke. Start shopping now.
Lei Chic Special Delivery
LeSportsac's Hawaii-exclusive line of Moana Ahe bags, designed by Makaha artist Kat Reeder, has already amassed quite a following with its retro influence, warm, tropical hues and bronzed hula dancers. The company is such a fan of Reeder's work, a second collaborative print is slated for release in October – view a sneak peek on our Facebook page.
Stylish shopping is in the bag.
