You’ve outgrown your glam rock groupie days – big hair, fishnets, and heavy eyeliner are all behind you. But even though you’re no longer trying to score backstage passes, you still love getting a few cheap thrills.

So head to Glam Rok, the new designer discount boutique on Kapahulu.

Owner Jacqueline Trinh wanted to offer glamour at rock bottom prices (hence the name), because like many women, she loves designer duds but can’t always swing the sticker... Read more »

One Day Wonders

Sugar Lush

www.leichic.com

Dealer: Psst. Hey you, in the Ferragamo heels. Looking for a sweet fix?

You [turning up nose]: Not that someone like you would understand, but I don’t eat sweets. Even at a work party, I only eat the crudité.

Dealer: Sure you do, doll. I can give you a quick hit with a chocolate kiss or a sugared gumdrop…

Small Talk

www.leichic.com
Big isn’t always better. Not when it comes to jeans or bar tabs, and certainly not when it comes to swimwear.

Turns out, an itsy-bitsy boutique is just the place to buy that teeny-weeny bikini. So head over to the cozy little Hula-La shop at the Royal Hawaiian hotel that the Kailua-based... Read more »

Calling this stuff “sanitizer” would be so lowbrow. If you’re plucked... Read more »
