Tamara Catz Inc.
Nothing makes me feel worse about my life as a single girl than writing about bridal shops. I might work, travel and play video games, but once my friends start talking about how excited they are to get married I feel like a failure. Especially when they take me shopping at Tamara Catz Inc, to look at the exquisite bridal collections, which are filled with long flowing skirts, Grecian influence, silk and chiffon. Even if you’re not getting married, Tamara Catz offers fashion straight out of a fairytale. The store is a girl’s dream come true. As long as that girl isn’t angry, single and jaded, of course. Oh well, the gays can’t get married, either. And hell, most of them are exponentially better looking and more talented than me. 83 Hana Hwy., Paia, 579-9184, tamaracatz.com @angryshortgirl
