Today I was hoping to see what type of colorful warm-weather duds the stylish people of NYC were wearing this season, so I popped on over to The Sartorialist blog. I was shocked and delighted to see that indeed they were sporting one of my current color obsessions (“flame,” a bright orangey-red) and one of the lovely ladies featured looked awfully familiar. Upon closer inspection I realized that I was looking at our good friend Mele of Meleana handbag fame. This perpetually chic local girl is known for her colorful handbags that are fashioned from vintage aloha fabrics. Mele can often be found getting inspired on the beaches of Oahu, and even on the streets of NYC. Learn more about Meleana handbags here.
