‘I said ‘excuse me, can I have a look?’ She turned around and she was wearing high-fashion sunglasses, not to everyone’s taste.
‘And I said ‘I’m a personal stylist, and I think they look fab, and if you love them, you should get them’.
‘At which point, the friend said ‘I think I’m going to listen to the personal stylist’s point of view’.

‘I said to her, ‘what about your friend? She likes these? She looks fab in them’ – so she went and bought them.’
Susie told her followers that there is a message to be learned from the incident.
She said: ‘Be careful who you surround yourself with and remember just because your friend doesn’t like it doesn’t mean you don’t have to buy it.
‘Follow your own style intuition. And if I’m nearby, I’ll tell them off!’
Susie’s followers were in support of her actions and flooded the comment section with praise.
‘Love this. I bet she feels amazing every time she wears them now too. Well done you for stepping in!’ one person wrote.
Another added: ‘Thank you so much for interrupting her and putting her in her place.’
Susie added: ‘It is well known that women dress for other women – so it’s important to build each other up. If a friend tells you she doesn’t like an item of clothing you pick up, it’s likely she is influenced by her own taste and likes/dislikes.’
