Alyson Vetter O’Connell was a vivacious and generous spirit. A stunning model, talented makeup artist and committed mom, she found joy in making others feel special and loved. In her memory, we’d like to honor another woman—in a way that Alyson would applaud—by making her feel exceptionally pin-up beautiful!
In memory of Alyson Vetter O’Connell, we asked you to help us find a woman as vivacious, talented, generous and caring and who is making a positive impact. Your nominations led us to an innovative baker of vegan cakes and pastries who not only sells her delicious treats around Chicago, but also donates them in support of animal care and human rights organizations. Recently having to put her dream of a storefront shop on hold because of sexual harassment by the would-be landlord, this strong woman has persisted and success looks like a waiting list of orders for her delectable sweets!
Convinced to take a day off for some pinup pampering, Heather, owner and baker at Pie, Pie My Darling joined us as our 2018 Miss Motoblot Honoree. Heather received hair and makeup services from Tigerlilie Salon, wardrobe donated from Vixen by Micheline Pitt and gift basket of beauty products donated by a friend of Alyson’s.
Thank you to Aiden, Alyson’s son, for assisting us and her family for joining us again this year. While this does not bring back our beautiful pin-up, we hope this honor helps further Heather’s success and inspire other women to keep up their wonderful work.
