April Flowers

April 2, 2009 - Thursday

This is a little late but I am never punctual when it comes to uploading pictures! A few weeks earlier, a bunch of my girlfriends and I went to a fashion event/birthday celebration called, "April Showers" at the Waikiki Parc Hotel. The event was hosted by the birthday honoree, Blaine Ashley Hite, a local stylist who just launched a new online shopping website, Shop Blaine Ashley. Blaine tries to incorporate up-and-coming as well as local designers on her website such as Myne, Indah, Crispin & Bastillo, Thayer and Beautiful People. Most of the pieces in her collection are monochromatic, silk pieces... Lots of neons - hot pinks, greens, blues... Perfect to sport for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.

Blaine showcased some of the items on her website by having a pool side fashion show. I was especially excited about the show because Jamie was a model! She looked amazing... Check out those long legs. Several photographers were in my way (How rude!) but I think it makes the pictures just a little more artsy... Overall, the event was lots of fun! It was a great change of venue and almost seemed like we were at a private pool party in LA.

Spotted: Tea Carrere and she was really sweet! She was laughing at all of us because we were cheering so loud for Jamie...

Post-fashion event I went to Nobu and sampled three sinfully delicious desserts! Yum, you know me and my sweet tooth! Soooo good! The pastry chef creates new, innovative desserts every season. All the desserts are made in-house down to the homemade ice cream!

Cafe Espresso: Espresso foam, coffee ice cream, cocoa crumble, passion fruit jelly and curry milk panna cotta (back), Shaved Ice: Lilikoi ice, fruit syrup, condensed milk, mixed fresh fruit and dulce de luche ice cream (left) and Chocolate Yogurt: Frozen chocolate powder, caramelized pineapple, yogurt ice cream and phyllo crunch (right)
