I've been on a crazy whirlwind this past few week with work & projects; (hence the lack of posts recently) but through the madness, I was blessed with the opportunity to tour the warehouse/manufacturing center for Jams World! Being around since the 1960's makes Jams World one of Hawaii's legacy designer brands that have paved the way for our local industry & they are still staying strong TODAY. I wish you all could've seen the infinite rolls of fabric they house that date back to the 60's; it was MAGICAL! Each Jams print is 100% EXCLUSIVE to the brand & therefore, always a limited edition piece.
Now I know my generation remembers Jams fondly as an 80's powerhouse of rad neons & prints but since then, we have all retired our Fresh Prince-esque digs along with the idea of wearing the brand again. All I gotta say is - you may rediscover your love for them so take a 2nd look! I cruised through the on-site outlet store & found some pretty cool vintage print stuff! There is an endless selection of AMAZING prints & styles (not to mention they are all ON SALE). Anyway, I settled on a men's aloha shirt from the 70's :) I think I shocked the staff by picking a menswear piece but oh well...I like what I like right?! All tied up & paired with these "Slasher" shorts, make my casual look perfect for a gal on go. PS Ladies, the shirt is a size medium (FYI) in case you want to copy the look with your own print :) we can start sharing clothes with our BF's hahaha!
The shirt's sleeves were REALLY long so I did a little DIY sewing for a slouchy roll :) (look Mama...I used a needle & thread for ONCE haha)
I added a cute mini-spiked necklace for a little edge.
