While I was trying to figure out what to say about this outfit I realized it took a community to make it. Everything I am wearing was something that was traded, bartered, a mega-dealio, or just plain gifted to me. Cappy from the raddest store ever [No. 808] gave me a killer deal on my Black Crane Jumpsuit, my dear friend Gina gifted me those incredible boots for shooting her family photos, Molly from Alola Maui is rad and gave me that amazing clutch.. just because, Jennifer from Aloha Superette hooked a sister up with my brass and Pom Pom bracelets, and Pearl.Love is always showering me with love post-photoshoot styling.
That makes me feel really good. We are a community of fashion loving, island dwelling, fabulous girls who all support each other.
So, because it is appropriate for the occasion, here is a list of a few of my favorite shops and designers in Hawaii!

*Honorary shoutout to Gina D. for being a boss lady that runs Smartees, a powerhouse t-shirt/garment biz based in Hawaii and ruling at knit to print perfection.
It's a Community Fit!
