Welcome to the world of Wake Up Little Susie!


Well, hello! I’m Susie of Wake Up Little Susie. One of the main things I was keen to do when the day job finished at the end of 2014 and I had ‘more time’ on my hands, was to start writing my very own blog (now that I know what one actually is) and although we all know that ‘more time’ doesn’t actually exist, ever, I’m still determined to find time to write.

Reading & writing have always been among my favourite things & ‘Authoress’ (preferably preceded by ‘Best Selling’) was top of my ‘What I want to be when I grow up…’ list when I was at primary school. Truthfully, the teenage me would have expected the 40-something year old me to have a novel or two under my belt by now, but I guess there’s still time…

In the mean time, I’m very excited about the idea of a regular blog post to enable me to write about & share subjects that I am passionate about which are likely to include pop music, popular culture, fashion, style, history, literature, pyjamas or any combination of those things!


This will also tie-in beautifully with my own business – Wake Up Little Susie – which has been running for 4 years & has become my main income from this January, which involves vintage clothing, accessories, homeware & ephemera and particularly my specialiast subject of vintage nightwear.

I am also keen to touch on controversial subjects such as ‘Double Denim – yes or no?’  & ‘Is it OK to wear dungarees after the age of 5?’ Sensitive issues that I have touched on through Facebook & I feel need more detailed analysis… I am also very interested in the history of fashion & where nicknames for iconic items of clothing came from – Harringtons? Ricky Jackets? as well as the influence of popular culture on fashion & vice versa.

For my own personal satisfaction as much as anything else, I want to do so much more than just buy & sell vintage clothing; I enjoy selling a brand, a personality, an experience and being able to write regularly can only enhance the overall world that is ‘Wake Up Little Susie!’

More about me, my business, where I live, where it all came from & an answer to the question ‘Why Nightwear?’ in future posts but for now, thanks for reading my first few tentative words & please do comment, share with your friends, let me know what you’d like me to write about & hopefully see you next time!

    Best of Luck Susie and well done. I will certainly look out for your next blog. I do admire you – you are doing just what I have always wanted to do but have never got round to making the effort or seeking the knowledge. My mum would a always say “God help those that help themselves”. This is always at the back of my mind but the time never seems right, or is it that I am always making excuses in putting it off.
    Hope to see you on Friday at the Madder Market.

    • Thanks for the kind words Gill! The last year or so since my day job finished has been really hard work, but I’m still remaining positive & going for it!
      Glad to see you guys at The Maddermarket, it was very busy first thing but hopefully I’ll get more time to chat properly next time we meet up xxx
