The Missed List – March 2012

You've been hooped up all month – glued to the television. Not that you're a huge basketball fan, but ever since you got suckered into putting $50 into the office pool, you've been sweet on the top sixteen, laid up for the elite eight, and basically big danced the night away.

Now, after weeks of sucking down three dollar beers in your most "sports dive bar" appropriate shorts and tees, you're jonesing for some of that style that slipped through your e-mail inbox.

No penalty required. We rounded up our best Final Four for March to get you back up to speed. Now that's a slam dunk.

Hide and Peeq
Peek a boo stopped thrilling us at age three. But take a shop stocked with little-known, cool jewelry, accessories, housewares and eats, add discounts and extra prizes for every item you click on (such as an extra 40 percent off) and we'll play on Sneakpeeq all day long. This week, we're watching for vintage-inspired makeup, acai and matcha truffles and stainless steel dog tag watches.
Sneak a peeq now.

Lei Chic Behind the Scenery
You haven't sipped a Blue Hawaii since Bartles & Jaymes and you haven't cruised Kalakaua Ave. since sophomore year. But we have five great reasons for locals to visit Waikiki: tax-free Marc by Marc Jacobs and See by Chloe, a massive Forever 21 and that holy grail of Hawaii's famous strip – cheap parking. Here's another tip: make your shopping list BEFORE you get in the car by browsing our picks in the new HONOLULU Shops Waikiki, available online right now.

Lei Chic Glam Rocks
When we heard one of our (and Macy's) favorite local jewelry designers was launching a new line, we were all ears (and wrists and fingers). Midori's Traci Morinaga created the more affordable Pueo Jewelry to give her team a place to express their creativity outside of the commercial world. Because we asked pretty please, she's extended her free bracelet (left) with a purchase of $65 (believe us, it's easy to do) through the end of the month.

Lei Chic The Real Heels
You have Brian Atwood taste – but a Payless budget. Here's a way to talk yourself off the wedge. ALDO Rise offers looks from a series of edgy designers at price tags below $200. We're still enamored with the feather embellished, leather whipstitched, striped spiky pump from JW Anderson, the two-toned slashed stiletto platform by Faster by Mark Fast, and we're already creating room in our overflowing shoe wardrobe for the zipper edged Cushnie et Ochs pumps coming out this fall.
Slip these on for sizes.
