Shady Business 
You refuse to suffer in the name of fashion. You’ve found ways to make your high heels easier on your feet and to keep your bikini top from being such a pain in the neck.

But you’ve still got a headache from those sunglasses with the too-snug arms.

Well, there’s something new under the sun. Aloha Friday sunglasses, designed by local girl Jennifer Eng, don’t have hard-molded arms at all.
Instead, they have delicate gold chains with crystals, shells, gemstones, or metal hoops at the end. The chains tuck neatly behind your ears and fall just past your earlobes to create the look of a dangling earring.

The sunglasses themselves have versatile, rounded-square lenses, so they flatter most face shapes. And the arms that double as earrings add just enough sparkle to make them feel one-of-a-kind, and made just for you.

So there’s no need to give in to ear pressure.

Aloha Friday sunglasses are at Flower Child boutique, 41 Kihapai Street, Kailua, 808.263.0288.
