inVESTed

Hey guys! Happy Fashion's Night Out!

I can't believe how fast this week has gone by.  Last weekend was the Couture Hawaii Fashion Show.  It really was such a great opportunity for our fashion club to be able to showcase a small collection, with the "big leagues" of the Hawaii fashion industry.  I'm still waiting on photos, so once I get them, I'll definitely be sharing it with you all.

I'm sure everyone is excited with the coming of fall.  It's still "summer" here in Hawaii.  It will forever be summer. Urgh.  That doesn't stop me from building a "fall-ish" wardrobe, though.  I found this camel colored vest at Old Navy for such a good deal.  It's such a versatile piece and will be in major rotation in the months to come. 

If you haven't heard yet, you can now shop online at Zara.com.  So.freakin.thrilled!  I can finally stop my incessant whining about not be able to shop there.  And although, I still prefer physical shopping, online Zara shopping, is better than NO Zara shopping.  Yippee!


Not sure if you can tell, but I painted nebula's on my nails.  Pretty intergalactic-out-of-this-world-extraterrestrial funness, right!?

Love, S

Yes, it's always summer here... at least on Maui, in Lahaina. Oahu get's a lot cooler though, and you can actually wear fall gear. :)

I am so thrilled to hear you say, urgh about the endless summer here in Hawaii. Yes, I love the warm weather but I longingly look at all the gorgeous pieces for fall and am slightly bitter that I have to create a "fallish" wardrobe. Also, I LOVE your nails! Would you mind telling me how you did it?

Josie said...

You look SO cute! I love that pretty little dress and your fun nails! I'm so excited about Zara online too.

Love your nails and the camel vest. It's a bit too edgy for me (which is more a testament to how conservative I am) but I love the color.

I really feel so busy that I can't get to the gym either! Still gotta try though. Get exercise in one form or another.

I love this dress on you! It's gorgeous! I wouldn't know how to dress if I live in HI. Does it get colder at all during the "winter?"

I love your nails! They totally look very space-y!
