Jingle Belle Rock

When it comes to holiday accessories you tend to trend a little more grandma than glamour girl.

This year, leave the tinsel on the tree and turn instead to the three fashion-wise women of Aloha Aina Boutique for notice-me-in-the-right-way accessories.

Opening tomorrow, Aloha Aina is the brainchild of local ladies Seyon Chan, Gina Fukeda and Carrina Curnow, who boast a combined 50-plus years of retail experience.

The shabby-chic shop (think vintage vanities and chandeliers) is stocked with fun, flirty jewelry and accessories from the Islands' top designers. Try on the latest earrings and necklaces from the whimsical Omnia line, which mixes delicate stones and precious metals. Or, snag one of the Meleana vintage fabric totes, available in a wide range of bright colors and tropical patterns.

Mixed-fabric maxis from machinemachine and tie-dye Tiare Hawaii sundresses fill the racks. And new styles from Indah, Gypsy o5, cc doodle, Cory Labang and other Island favorites are due to arrive soon.

So Dasher on down,
and start your rein as style Vixen.

Aloha Aina Boutique, Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, 2201 Kalakaua Ave. 2nd Level, Honolulu, 808.924.4333.
