Bulletin Board: Out of Stock Items Update

Hey Everyone!

We have been getting all of your item requests for 'Out of Stock' items and we are here to give you a full update. On items that we will not be restocking we have found some close alternatives that are relatively within the same price range. // miss congeniality dress
This particular dress has been our most requested and we are unable to restock the exact same dress, but we did find a close alternative. We can bring in this alternative, pictured above right, but it does have a different back. It is a zipper back instead of open. Please let us know your thoughts. If this dress would suffice in place of the Miss Congeniality dress we would love to know!

need you now top //
Because we are unable to provide a restock for this top, we found a very close alternative at Very very similar and with the same price, but with a pearl edged neckline.

This top we are also unable to restock, but this alternative could work. The alternative is semi-sheer with cap sleeves and the collar is a bit different but, it's the closest style that we have found so far.

Last but not least...

Our second most requested item, which was by far the hardest to find anything remotely close, was the Dog Days Satchel in Navy. We did find two different alternatives. The first from is the same size, pretty close in color except it is a canvas material instead of leatherette (polyurethane).

The second alternative from is a bit smaller (9x9 instead of 15x12). This one comes with a top handle and can be converted into a backpack.

We hope you will find this information helpful since we are unable to fulfill a lot of these restock requests. Please let us know if we could be of any more assistance!

Love and Aloha,

'Morning Brew' Blogger Lookbook v.1

Hey Everyone!

At the beginning of March, we asked a few of our Blogger Family Members to participate in our first ever Blogger Lookbook. Instead of featuring a specific model for each season, we thought it would be great to feature our Blogger Family! Each of them have their own unique style that you will get to see in this lookbook. We also asked them a few fun questions to answer along the way so you could get to know them personally a little better.

The theme, or outfit challenge as we like to call it, was named as 'Morning Brew. The challenge was to style two different outfits they would wear out to their favorite coffee shop or tea time with friends. They did such a great job with styling their outfits as well as taking their own photos, which they provided for us.

The lookbook is fully clickable so if you see anything you like, you can simply click on the item or the shopping cart button, and be taken to the respective website. We have also provided links to their blogs if you would like to see more of their style!

We hope you enjoy our first Blogger Lookbook 'Morning Brew'!

Love and Aloha,
The August Wrinkle Family

Many thanks goes out to

Bulletin Board: Shipment of Orders

Hey Everyone! Its Jana here!

I just wanted to give you all an update about what has been going on with our packaging and shipping of orders. As most of you know we made a move to San Diego from Hawaii at the ending of last year, and we have really been enjoying it out there! However, I started having some health issues and have returned to Hawaii to undergo treatment and to be closer to family and friends.

With that being said.. my husband and mother-in-law have volunteered to package and ship orders out for me while I am in Hawaii. It may take a day or two longer for us to have your packages shipped out, and we have disabled the Express Shipping option for now. But rest assured, we are still up and running and your orders are being processed and shipped as quickly as possible.

I am so grateful to have a strong support system both here and in San Diego. Without the help August Wrinkle would have had to shut its doors until I finished up my treatment. A heart full of gratitude goes out to my husband James and my mother-in-law Mama Luz.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding!! Have a great rest of the week and Happy Shopping!!


P.S. If you have any questions or concerns please email us at:

The Burning House

Just thought this was worth sharing... So interesting! It definitely reflects who you are and what you cherish the most in life by asking one simple but complicated question... What would you grab? Your furry friend? Childhood photo album? Favorite pair of shoes?

A Book Worm's Heaven! A walk-in closet just for books! What more could a girl as for?!

I never use bookmarks anymore because of my overuse of a Nook but I really love reading actual books that I can feel and smell.. This paper bookmark pad would be so handy for books, magazines, recipe books, etc.

These Hot Air Balloon graphics are so so cute! But what should I use them for? hmmm.. the possibilities!

Love how this coiled rope bowl looks so nautical. I can just image relaxing at a seaside cottage just by looking at this bowl.. swoon!
