The Missed List - July

Your mile – four minutes.
Your breakfast – a perfect three-minute egg.

You move fast. So sometimes 200 words, even in an unbelievably clever and witty article, is just a little too much.

To help you get back up to speed, here is a synopsis of the Lei Chics you may have missed this month – accidentally of course.

A Wave of New Swimwear

It’s not that you’re shallow, you’re just not the type to dive right in when it comes to swimwear. We went fishing and found four locally-designed lines that will send you right over the deep end. Between the Honi Honi's sweet, reversible bikinis, the fringe benefits of Acacia’s wild side, Gypsy’s lingerie-inspired no-creep bottoms, and Boom Boom’s color-blocking, you’re sure to find something that suits you.

Lei Chic Top Gear
Gas station fashion fixes

It’s amazing what can come out of a mid-afternoon slurpee run. On a whim, we sent two beauty experts shopping inside Hawaii service station stores. Amazingly, stashed among the spam musubis and slurpees, they found fixes for everything from a surprise pimple to slippery shoes and even an unusual use for disposable toilet seat covers.

A fresh music mix

Your playlist could use a tune up. For the rest of the summer, we’re going to offer you free mixes of new songs and old favorites every week. In July, we kicked it off with one group’s spin on summer listening including dance beats ranging from Warren G to The Beach Boys.
