While on one of my walks window shopping through Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, I never really realized how many amazing people you can meet by just stopping into a local shop and having a decent conversation with the shop owner. Thats what happened to me and I really wonder why it occurred this way, it was a true blessing.
One this day I met a shop owner called Alison of Hooti Couture located at 321 Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn. If you’ve never stopped in and met her yet, you gotta get there and say hello. She is a very smart, savvy, business oriented lady with an energetic, high spirited attitude which I truly love. She is beautiful! But we will leave the story about her and her store for another post. It will be amazing one for sure!
So on the day that I met Allison, I mindlessly browsed through her amazing store and had mentioned to her that I loved her merchandise. She excitedly handed me a flyer and invited me to her burlesque show. I was surprised because I had always wanted to attend one of these shows but in my neck of the woods these are far and few. I kindly thanked her and told her that I would happily attend and she stated that I would be her designated photographer for the day and we would meet and greet people at the door. Whoa, designated photographer LOL…I was in shock! How could a lady that just met me designate me a perfect stranger to take pictures of her most important event. My god, the pressure was on and I was happy to accept the invitation but was feeling the heat by the time I walked out the store!
When the day finally arrived and I saw a lot of friendly faces surrounding me. I also noted how smoothly Alison moved from guest to guest greeting and making conversations with everyone as she walked back and forth among the crowd. She was a true hostess and I truly admired her ability to make friends with everyone that walked through the door. I must admit I myself am too shy to even try to work a room like she did so flawlessly. This lady amazed me, for sure!!
In light of how the event went and how it was a huge success, I hope that these pictures below represent all that is Hooti Couture and The Silky Sirens! I’m your number one fan ladies!! You sure did represent Brooklyn really well!
It was an amazing evening and I would highly recommend one of the burlesque events to all that are considering attending but have second thoughts. Its enjoyable and the performances will make you laugh. You will be in awe with all the talent and sexiness on stage. You won’t regret it. To my dear newfound friend Alison – you really did put together an amazing event, it was fabulous! Thank you so much for your trust in me and thanks to all the attendees that made me feel welcome on this day. I really appreciate it! It was so much fun, hope to attend another one soon.
