Yes, the Jackson Heights sari strip could eat this tiny, multicolored Lower East Side boutique as a tapa. No matter; this is a belly dancer's type of sari shop. Here you can find tentative beginners and shimmy pros paw-ing through multi-hued piles of saris, skirts, dresses, jewelry, shirts, slippers, and of course, hip scarves. One can score a perfectly shake-worthy hip scarf—say, a sassy red lined with gold coins—for 20 bucks. More elaborate, multi-tiered models sell for $35. Ensembles with a tribal feel and a touch of shimmer go for more, but even if you can't afford them (yet), you'll still leave HELLO SARI with a mind bursting with ideas.
