I’d like to introduce you to my favourite Aunty - Daphne. I know you’re not supposed to say that someone’s a favourite, but ever since I was knee-high to a grasshopper she’s always been my young, funky, favourite Aunt.
Many women give in to ageing, and that includes the way they dress. I remember Janice, our 60-year old makeover model last year, questioning a denim jacket: “Aren’t I a bit old for a denim jacket?” Nope.
My Aunty is proof of that. Here’s her modeling for a retail store she assists in in Taupo.
She also modelled for me when I first set up Gorgeous Me - main image above.
It's in the genes
Talk about keeping it in the family, Daphne is also a stylist, covering Taupo, Hawkes Bay, Manawatu, Tauranga and Rotorua. Her business is ‘Witch in the Wardrobe’ (and yes, she does get called a ‘witch’, in an endearing way). Daphne’s focus is helping people maximise the gold nuggets within their existing wardrobe - sometimes that involves getting a garment altered, adding a few new pieces to get even more wear out of them, or to ditch those that really aren’t right. She’ll also take you shopping, or to get your hair styled.
"Your clothes say who you are before you speak. A winning wardrobe suits your shape, colouring and personality. My greatest thrill is seeing women use their wardrobe to full potential - it's usually not the item of clothing but how you are wearing it", says Daphne.
If you live in Taupo, Hawkes Bay, Manawatu, Tauranga, Rotorua or surrounding areas and you’re keen for a styling appointment with Daphne Reed, drop us a line and we’ll put you in contact.
