A Little About Myself

April 29th, 2009 — 2:50pm

Welcome!  It’s DOLCE’s very first blog entry…this is blog site will be filled with great finds at DOLCE as well as other great stores, fashion do’s and don’ts, and I’ll also be adding some of my favorite ‘things’ of all time.  DOLCE, a little boutique, is  filled with fabulous products mostly from the ‘Fashion Capital,’ NYC.  This cute and stylish boutique is six months old and located at Ward Centre (next to Mocha Java and the Honolulu Chocolate Company).    Many of the brands are new to Hawaii but often seen in magazines and celebrities.


Currently, DOLCE carries LnA, fLuXuS, Calypso, Matt Bernson, Monrow, and Lauren Moshi to name a few.  We will soon be featuring J Brand, Beirn, Qi, Vita, and MORE!

A little about myself…Personally, I’m addicted to shopping and need the ‘MUST-HAVES’ of the current season.  I’ve been in retail for about 15 years (Oh my, where has the time gone?).  I began my work experience at T&C Surf all the way to the high-end luxury world of Ralph Lauren.  It’s been a long journey but I’ve learned so much while working at the RL East Hampton store during the summers (and had the opportunity to chat with Mr. Lauren himself!).  I love to shop…EVERYWHERE.  From little, unique boutiques to department stores.  Fashion comes in all walks of’s about looking fabulous yet comfy.  I’m often seen in a LnA top (one of my favorites) and boyfriend jeans.  But, I absolutely ENJOY getting glammed up in a dress with some gorgeous heels.  I hope to see you all at DOLCE!

Introduction to DOLCE

Opening of DOLCE

Welcome to DOLCE! 




I love creating window displays.  This particular one took a lot more work..finding the shells, painting, gluing.  I have visitors that come everyday to look at the frames.  The shells and rocks were collected from various Hampton beaches over the summer.  

CALYPSO's Julia Dress

CALYPSO’s “Julia Dress”

I have this dress in so many colors.  It’s a great piece to have in your wardrobe.  I love this dress because you have the option to wear it with a tank and flat sandals (or pair it with your favorite ballet flats) or dress it with your favorite heels.  It’s made from silk and it’s MACHINE WASHABLE! How fabulous is that!!


CALYPSO's Hester Darjeeling


Tunics always make a comeback during Spring and Summer.  It’s so easy to wear with leggings, with skinny jeans, or as a dress.  And, there perfect for the year round weather in Hawaii.  All women should have one in their closet!
