I meet a local fashion designer.

Meeting a talented Byron Bay designer all started with these trousers!  I needed something for cooler weather, but not necessarily cold weather, when I arrived in Sydney three months ago. And, lucky for me, I found these in a 50% off sale by the trendy Aussie Tiger Lily brand. Then it was the big hunt for a top to go with them. Nothing I brought from the UK really worked and I wanted something as crazily patterned as these bad boys.  Enter a little beach market in Byron........... 

My new, pre-loved £24 dress!

You know how much I love digging around in vintage markets, charity and pre-owned shops, as well as the High Street.  So I just had to share this fabulous dress with you to encourage & hopefully inspire you to scour the markets, search on-line and generally have a good dig around for a true bargain.  I was so happy with this pre-owned dress, from Harlem in Hove,  that I wore it for my birthday lunch (with a vest and short leggings underneath!) and paired it with my very old pink Camper heels & a black cashmere cardi from Boden.  Not my usual vintage look but love it as a party dress - perfect for the run up to Christmas.

MY THREE FAVOURITE SUMMER DRESSES.

I've had a video made called 'Suzi's Wardrobe'.  Click on the photo below. Thought you'd find it a bit of an insight into what I am about style-wise & how I hang on to some stuff for decades just updating the old with new accessories to get a vintage & retro look without spending much money…
