Evening Gown Shopping

I am coming over to Hawaii in about 2 weeks and being an Aussie I love to shop in American stores. I am after an evening gown for a special occasion later on in the year and I was wondering if there were any stores people could recommend that I visit? I will have a look in the department stores etc, but i was thinking more of a specialty shop?

I'm staying at the Outrigger Reef and won't have a car if that helps!

My daughter bought her graduation dress from the Macy's store at the Ala Moana Center - lots of choices. There is also a Nordstrom's in the same mall.

Try Nordstrom Rack at Ward centre, it is a very short bus ride.

We have picked up Calvin Klein evening dresses at Ross Dress for less stores very very cheap ( I mean really ridiculously cheap to what we pay in OZ). One was less than $30.

There is one at Ward also, and one in Waikki, and one behind the Ala Moana centre near Walmart that would be easy for you to get to.

Well you certainly got diverse answers from both ends of the spectrum.

I was going to suggest Nieman Marcus.

Go to the Ala Moana (Shopping) Center. It's a short bus ride or cab ride from the Outrigger Reef. There is a large Macy's, a Nieman Marcus, and Nordstrom ... all large, high-quality department stores. And there are tons of other shops there as well.

You will find what you want at Ala Moana mall.

The Betsy Johnson store is a hit for young girls. My fairer loves that place.

Niemans, Macy's and others in that area are perfect options.
