FIGI Jeans

I recently received these amazing art inspired pair of FIGI Jeans.  Being that it is a new line, which launched in March 2014, I really didn’t know what to expect.  I was very impressed with the quality and fit of these jeans!  The denim is soft and stretchy which makes it very comfortable to wear.  It is a little less conservative than my usual style but it definitely adds a little excitement to my wardrobe!    

Designer Diane Carleton and contemporary artist John Rossi have collaborated to bring fashion and art together making this their first collection of FIGI Jeans.   FIGI Jeans come in two fits, skinny and relaxed and prices range from $69 to $249.

The Perfect Day: Waikiki

We were recently invited and honored to be a part of The Perfect Day: Waikiki, hosted by The Luxury Collection and One Kings Lane.  The Perfect Day:  Waikiki included an Exclusive “Royal Papa’aina” dinner by Chef Shaymus Alwin of Azure Restaurant and a night at the iconic and luxurious Royal Hawaiian.   
A perfect day it was.  The Historic Garden and Grove Jr Suite was absolutely gorgeous.  We felt like princesses!  We were welcomed with such lovely customized gifts and delicious banana bread.  And this was only the beginning of our perfect day.

This soft silk Royal Hawaiian scarf will add a beautiful touch to our outfits.

Delicious Banana Bread

After settling in and admiring our gorgeous Historic Garden and Grove Jr Suite, we attended the exclusive “Royal Papa’aina” dinner at the King Kamehameha Suite, the most prestigious suite at the Royal Hawaiian.  The view was breathtaking.

The table setting and decor inspired by One Kings Lane was absolutely stunning.

We had a marvelous "Royal Papa'aina" 8-course meal and wine pairing prepared by Chef Shaymus Alwin of Azure Restaurant.  It was nothing like anything we’ve ever experienced before!

After returning from the "Royal Papa'aina Dinner, we were surprised with cookies and a keepsake gift from One Kings Lane.

The historical and majestic Royal Hawaiian opened in 1927 on the infamous Wakiki beachfront and has since been restored and renovated.

Here are some pictures of the world-class historic landmark – The Pink Palace of the Pacific.
