GirlTalkTV is an online magazine from Southwest Florida that addresses interests and concerns of women. The TV portion comes from video links the site provides. That evening they were sponsoring a Fashion and Trunk show at The Hilton Naples.
The event was held to benefit The Garden of Hope and Courage. The garden's purpose is to be a therapeutic retreat for those with illness. Its construction was inspired by the long-term malady of one of its originators wives who eventually passed away because of it.
The event was nicely catered by the hotel. Mini Beef Wellington with Bernaise sauce, steamed Pot Stickers with a ginger-soy sauce and assorted cheeses and fruits were provided as nibbles to the guests.
There was also a cash bar as well as champagne for those with VIP tickets.
Always having liked the high-contrast black and white fashion Photos of yesteryear, here was my golden opportunity.
