And now for Sue!
A true redhead like myself, we are often mistaken for sisters when out together. I met Sue when selling at an antique fair a couple of years ago, she took one look at my table, bought all my best stuff and we became firm friends.
Although she's been buying and selling for quite some time, Sue's never delved into vintage clothing. But with the pedigree &history she has, she definitely should- check these photos out!
Meet the QUEEN of matchy-matchy, my friends! Sue had this suede suit, handbag, hat and shoes hand tailored in Hong Kong in the early 80s. International travel was high on the agenda for Sue in those years, she used to travel around training racehorses for wealthy types.
Not quite visible here with this late 80s pantsuit are a pair of gold snakeskin stilletoes.
The jumpsuit of choice in the mid-70s, oh yes, it's GOLD PLASTIC!!!!
Never one to blend in with the crowd, here she is with the mauve maxi brigade.
Go a bit further back and the fashion pedigree only strengthens. Sues mother was a model, here she is at Smith & Caughy in Auckland in 1953.
What 50s lover wouldn't want one of these fabulous party frocks?
Another modelling shot, I love the long gloves. And hows the old lady with the fur in the background there?!
No wonder she was a model, LOOK AT THE SIZE OF HER WAIST!!
Le sigh. Were we ever that thin?
