The Constant Traveler

The best thing about traveling to the mainland? (Hint: It’s not smog or weather). It’s the shopping. A six-hour plane ride has never been too far to go for a hot new look, until the economic climate became as cold as a San Francisco summer.

Put away that Need Clothes, Will Travel sign and let wandering fashionista Jessica O’Neill shop for you. Every month she scours the L.A. fashion district for clothes and Manhattan for jewelry and handbags, then brings her goods back to Honolulu for sale.

At Jessica’s Traveling Boutique you can scout new styles by designers like Collective Clothing, Lani, Trinity (including their popular organic line), Nissi Jeans, and Shulami. If you shop each time with JTB’s eco-friendly cotton canvas bag, you’ll earn discounts on future purchases, and hosting a private shopping party gets you 10 percent of party sales in free fashions.

Though Jessica first got started doing events with The Wedding Café and in client’s homes, now she’s going big with regular events, a new web site and online store that launched yesterday, and an expanded presence through representatives on the mainland and abroad.

All so you can look like you just stepped off the runway.
Without having to go far at all.
