My close friend and style muse, Amanda, moved to Kauai years ago. Since then, our families have made Thanksgiving together a tradition. This year, I get two trips to my favorite state in the land. Ms. Amanda is having a big birthday and we are all headed to Oahu's North Shore to celebrate. No family. Just girls. And a few dozen local surfers.
Below is the first image taken to launch THE DRESS to my friends! My husband snapped while one child slept and the other was enthralled with Angry Birds. Location: Beach at Waimea Plantation Cottages, November 2012.
