Many of you will already know Simon because he's the super helpful Man who runs our Brighton Boutique.
I couldn't manage without him! He has impeccable dress sense and he is also the only man I know who can pick the perfect dress for anyone in about 5 seconds flat.
So you can all get to know Simon better I asked him a few questions!

What do you do for Dollydagger? While Managing the boutique
and being the day to day face of Dollydagger, I also get chance to do all
manner of other things which include taking part in Photo Shoots, a little bit
of Photography for the website, and hosting the Dollydagger VIP nights. Styling
ladies while having a glass of bubbles! Lets face it we all love the glamourous
side of life.
How long have you worked for Dollydagger? Two years now, I joined the
Dollydagger team in September 2010 when we opened our first Boutique in Brighton.
What do you enjoy the most about your job? The best bits for
me are the Customers. I love making our ladies feel special and helping them
pull an outfit together, usually getting them to try new things, and generally
encouraging them to try on everything in the shop!
We have quite a few regulars
now who like to pop in and they feel almost like family. Aww our own little Dollydagger family, I like the sound of that! I also enjoy doing window
displays and showing off the shop!
What do you do when you’re not at work? I live in
Brighton and love the beach, music and shopping. I am an avid toy collector,
collecting anything from 1950s vintage action men to contemporary designer toys from Kid Robot and Kubrick. But it doesn't stop there I
also enjoy flea markets and car boots. I am always on the lookout for Kitsch
bric-a-brac and interesting oddities, We had to move to a bigger flat
just to fit it all in! Some people say collecting is an illness but I can think of worse things!
I enjoy photography and am also in the process of designing some gift cards
featuring some of my collection, so watch this space.
If you would like an peek
into my weird and wonderful world you can visit me on Flickr or just search for Toypincher, everyone is welcome!
If you could pass a law, what would it be? Oh so many...I
think I would ban flip flops on men, for goodness sake go and buy yourself some
Converse or go barefoot at least you will be able to walk properly then!
What would be your super power? I would be a time traveller,
there is so much stuff I would love to go back in time to see and buy! Who
knows I may bring you all a 1950s dress back!
Please say hello to Simon next time you visit the shop!
