Tonight, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend one of the most amazing events I have ever experienced, thanks to my sister, Natalie….
The Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce produced their 12th annual “Chopsticks and Wine” event at the Hawaii Convention Center entitled “Ooh La La…” a petite Paris, featuring Hawaii culinary delights and unlimited wine 😉
More photos later, but here is an idea of my outfit for the evening. Stripes & red- very Parisienne!

Stripes—-one of the biggest trends this spring!
A classical, timeless, fun and edgy piece, stripes make another comeback this season. Only bigger, bolder…even more colorful, and versatile.
From classic mod stripes (Michael Kors), to whimsical nautical stripes (Vivienne Westwood), Bohemian stripes (Dolce and Gabbana), chevron stripes (Jonathan Saunders), Warholian stripes (Marc Jacobs)… even elegantly-striped gowns (Oscar de la Renta)!
Some tips on how to wear stripes:
*Choose pieces that accentuate your waist.
*Don’t let stripes overwhelm your figure.
*For petites, vertically striped pants or skirts can make you look taller when worn with a solid-colored top.
*For dresses, avoid horizontal stripes that widen your shape.
*If you have a boyish figure horizontal stripes will give the illusion of curves. This helps enhance your proportion with distortion.
*Darker colors are more slimming than lighter ones.
My darling good friend Jena will be celebrating her 28th birthday this Saturday, and this fellow fashionista’s theme is stripes! Still contemplating on what type of outfit to put together. A few ideas below:
