Over the past few years 70’s ethnic bohemian pieces have become must-have fashion accessories for some of the most stylish trendsetters around. And Sera Brand has been able to capture the authentic vibe of that time in history with her latest look featuring a unique southwestern belt and rings, floral headwrap and a sweet pair of WCS metal octagon sunglasses.
We asked the Oahu based personal style blogger to dish on her hip life in Chinatown and her picks for night life, live entertainment and dive diners. Read more below:
WCS: What activities are you involved in outside of personal style bloggin?
Sera: I am also a fashion designer! I earned a degree in fashion design in spring 2013! I enjoy creating my own designs from the sketches to the final product.
WCS: How have you been spending your summer?
Sera: I have been mostly blogging, shopping and going to the beach! I also shot two of my new collections, photos are up on my blog!
WCS: What is one interesting thing about you that you want to share with our readers?
Sera: I used to be the visual merchandiser at Hawaii’s American Apparel! I had so much fun working there.
WCS: Tell us a bit about your hometown and best kept secrets for entertainment, night life and restaurants.
Sera: I currently live in Chinatown in Honolulu. The best restaurants here in my opinion is lucky belly and downbeat diner! Lucky belly has some delicious ramen and a cool hip environment. Down beat diner is a rocker diner that has good food and great milkshakes! The other half of downbeat diner is a lounge where they have local bands play shows. There’s also a bar worth mentioning called The Dragon Upstairs. It is a live jazz bar that is very upbeat and is a great place to visit during chinatowns first Friday night events.
