Culture on the Cheap
Greenpoint Fashion Watch: Bex Rocks!
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
I’ve seen this woman around the neighborhood for some time and have long been intrigued by her sense of style. Today, dear readers, I finally had the time and wherewithal to ask if I could take her picture. She kindly agreed and as we were talking it ended up that we knew each other— in cyberspace that is! “Bex” is one of my flickr contacts! Some of you might be wondering what the deal is with the hoops. She is a hula instructor and had just completed giving a class.
Which brings me to this item (which I have blown up for better viewing). The silver and black number with appendages is called a “fire hoop”. A fire hoop is pretty much what it entails: you set these attachments on fire and shake your groove thing. The more adventurous among you might be interested to know this one is for sale. Bex’s asking price is a $100. Any and all interested parties should contact Bex via her Flickr mail. Good luck!
