19th & Whimsy Shop
Prints Charming
Though it's only been in stores for a few days, 19th & Whimsy's spring collection is already turning up the heat with handkerchief hem wrap dresses, shimmery raglan tees with tiny flower details, and belted dresses covered in colorful paw prints (left), courtesy of designer Lauren Hayashibara's very own pooch.
Where: LMS Boutique, 2909 Lowrey Ave., Basique Threads, Ward Warehouse, and coming soon to 19th & Whimsy's Etsy shop.

Praise the Bar
Snag a front-row seat as some of Honolulu's hottest bartenders duke it out in The Bacardi Oakheart Iron Bartender Challenge.

When: Preliminary rounds begin Tuesday at 7 p.m. and continue March 19 and 26 with the big competition on April 2. Full schedule here.
