Burlesque dancer Ava Garter offers fashion tips, discusses her favorite designers and provides some valuable advice for aspiring bombshells with a tight budget. She said:
"I don't have endless amounts of money to spend on buying clothes to try to keep up with all the events that happen or my fashionable friends. I am a single mother of two little ones after all. I believe in spending as much as you can afford on the best available to you. I would rather have one or two beautifully fitting little black dresses that have classic style and can be worn over and over again rather than spend less buying the most "in style " dress every season."
