May I present J.Crew-on-the-island at Ala Moana Shopping Center, just a hop, skip and a jump outside of Waikiki.
Pros: Vibe is very Hawaii. Translation: J.Crew on vacation with emphasis on white interior, dark floors, rattan furniture draped with Hawaiian-Quilted pillows. A few of the key trends are here, along with lots of jewelry. All one needs is a mai tai and this is Paradise Found, not Lost.
Cons: The vibe is very Hawaii. What can I say?? Flip flops and khakis 365 days a year, NEVER a full collection of clothing. Emphasis on t-shirts and only the more casual of dresses, and don't even try to look for tweed or Super 120s ANYTHING. Because it ain't there.
So. If you're looking for resort wear, as in, Gosh I need something to cover up my bikini - oh! & this tee and shorts will do! Well, then sisters, this is your place. If not, then stick to the website.
I know I will.
