Lei Chic presents machinemachine at Honolulu Night Market

You've done all you can.

Leave your iPad on that gorgeous J.Crew statement necklace. Casually point out that your favorite Coach bag is on its death bed. Mention how much better your feet would feel in a new pair of Jimmy Choos.

Yet, come Friday, you still might wind up with a Playstation 4 and the line, "Hey, it's a gift we can both enjoy!"

Don't worry, we've got our own machine that can repair this disaster of a Valentine's Day present—more specifically machinemachine, our next featured designer at Honolulu Night Market. For one night only, Kauai designer and creative extraordinaire Shannon Hiramoto is packing up her Hanapepe workshop and bringing her wares to Oahu for some post-Valentine's Day retail therapy.

Rev up your wardrobe with comfy, pattern-packed racerback maxi and mini dresses that mix vibrant spring hues with fun, bold patterns and figure-flattering waistbands. Then motor over to classic machinemachine staples, like vintage-fabric wrap skirts and cheeky pa‘u shorts.

And, since Hiramoto truly is a machine when it comes to cranking out designs, you'll also find handstitched trucker hats, adorable keiki apparel, vintage embroidered pillows and clutches, paintings and even stationery to get your "gift" collection back on track.

Plus, enter to win a one-of-a-kind handmade wrap skirt of your choosing, no purchase necessary. Regular shoppers automatically get 20 percent off their purchase, but mention Lei Chic and you'll score an extra 10 percent discount. That's a whopping 30 percent discount off everything!

Which makes it all the more easier to assemble.

Amazing outfits, that is.

Look for machinemachine at Honolulu Night Market this Saturday, 6-11 p.m. at 683 Auahi St. in the Pinch of Salt Warehouse. For more information, visit Honolulu Night Market's website or download the Honolulu Night Market app, free on iTunes and Google Play.
