Louis Vuitton Waikiki opened its doors to the Junior League of Honolulu for a girl’s night out holiday shopping event Dec. 8.

It was a grown-up, dress-up party, with displays of scarves, jewelry, sunglasses, purses and other accessories set up for easy access to all who wanted to touch and try on.

JLH Board of Directors president Lisa Haeringer gave some of the opening remarks, saying that on days you don’t feel like a star, LV’s sunglasses and scarves will help, and 10 percent of sales that evening would go back to the JLH for the organization’s community outreach programs.

Chai Chaowasaree provided the food for the event, but I’d just come from an event at Halekulani, so didn’t have the capacity to sample any more ono-looking treats and desserts.

After dressing up in head-to-toe LV, the women lined up for photos by Rae Huo and Zakka. I wanted to try on the black dress Sherri Vallejo tried on, above, but I didn’t and regretted it the minute I stepped out the door. How many times can you put on LV and have the moment documented by such fab photographers?

Accessories were arranged for easy viewing and trying on.
