Costuming with Style and Silhouette


It’s the attitude that counts ! Give an actress the right silhouette and she’ll live the look.  You want a Vamp – Go with a pencil skirt, and a tight top.  Need a sweeter 50’s look? It’s circle skirts, demure Peter Pan Blouse, and a Cardigan with a scarf.  Mix and match the classic  retro silhouettes for your cast or dancers at Hey Viv !  Need inspiration – give me a call.

For Plays, Musicals, 50’s style Parties, and Dances.  See our selection

Small Business Round Table with Congressman Dan Donovan


Recently I was invited for a follow up meeting with Congressman Donovan in his Staten Island office after my visit to his Washington DC office during Small Business Week eBay DC Fly-in 2017.  Ed Varuolo of Hypno-Tronic Comics and Tariq Zaid of Richmond Hood Company  and I talked to the Congressman about Staten Island development, taxes, the proposed internet tax, and proposed changes to the health care system and how they would affect us and our small businesses.

We appreciated a chance to voice our concerns and to make the point that NY and Staten Island has many small businesses both brick and mortar and online.  Big issues can sometimes have a crushing effect on us as people think of the large corporations and forget the ‘Mom and Pop’  size places.  More work needs to be done and we will continue to make sure our voices get heard.

Thanks to Congressman Donovan for meeting with us, Patrick Ryan for setting it up and Henry Salmon of Equity Valuation Associates, Steven Grillo of the SIEDC, Dean Balsamini of the SBDC, and Linda Baran of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce for their contribution and support.
