Did this! My first event as a blogger – woohoo!! I’m not gonna lie, I was a bit timid (for those you who know me, this may be a bit surprising) when it came to really pumping up HawaiiFashionFiend.com, but it was my first event so GIMME A BREAK-geez! Back to the goods…
In case you’re wondering what the heck a Pop-Up Boutique is, let me tell you, it’s like a GYPSY convoy on fashion crack. Well, sort of. The Pop-Up Boutique was basically an AMAZING opportunity for some of Hawaii’s up and coming clothing, jewelry, and beauty designers to showcase their fabulous gems. This particular Pop-Up Boutique was extra exciting to me for a few of reasons:
1) My friend Fibi, who lives on Maui (and came to Oahu just for the event) was showing her uuber cute POSH PUA bikinis. These Brazilian bikinis will take your booty from blah to BOOTYLICSIOUS (shout out my girl, Beyonce).
2) They offered delicious complimentary cocktails from IMBIBE Hawaii (the coconut Kai Vodka cocktail was heaven on earth and the bartender was the one to direct me to Cherbu-thank you!).
3) It gave me a reason to visit Mercedes-Benz and pretend like I was car shopping for a brand new Benz:
The event was oozing with Hawaii fashion fiends…
Although I only picked up an adorable clutch from Jana Lam (cool factor: Jana does all her own textile prints!), some Cherbu beauty products and picked out few fabulous POSH PUA bikinis (this is me putting in my order Fibi!), I’d be lying if I said those were the only things I loved. My bank account is not endless, thus certain choices HAD TO BE MADE. I’m very happy however with my decisions and made these cute collages to showcase them:
