17th Ave Street Style: Carly Allison

17th Avenue is an exciting place that has much to offer, from great food, coffee, beer, and of course, a lot of amazing shopping, and the combination of all of these wonderful offerings also makes this the perfect avenue to find amazing street style. Enter Carly Allison.

Allison is one of the beautiful and talented ladies in The Garter Girls burlesque group and her personal style off the stage is soft and gracious, with a pin-up girl twist. The accessories she was wearing when I bumped into her were all hand crafted by Allison herself, making me adore and respect her personal style that much more!
