V Pack Boutique Now Open in Waialua

Jewelry designer Vanessa Pack opens a cute new store.

Sometimes, bigger isn’t better. A bigger storm? Uh-uh, no thanks. A bigger rent bill? We’ll pass. Kardashian butt Photoshopped into hugeness? Please no. Just no.

That’s why we’re applauding jewelry designer Vanessa Pack’s big idea to go small and sweet with her brand-new V Boutique in Waialua. The intimate space sits next to the old Waialua Sugar Mill in the same rustic warehouse where Pack creates her ocean-inspired jewelry. With her designer’s eye and love for all things fashion, it’s a small wonder she took the next step and opened her own store.

The boutique, which sits in a renovated space, has a little of everything for shoppers popping in from the beach. On our short list are a new suit from Eberjey Bikinis and a Maaji Kids bikini for the mini-me. For after the waves, pick up casual, weekend-appropriate clothing from Bella Dahl and a dramatic art piece from Carlos Mozo. Accessorize with delicate Vanessa Pack Jewelry wave- or coral-shaped necklaces and gorgeous statement handbags by Eugenia Woods.  In short, there’s just enough to make your day a little lovelier and little more stylish—on or off the beach.

Not to make a big deal out of it or anything.

67-106 Kealohanui St., Waialua, 315-5961. Open Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. and Saturday–Sunday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
