Little Joe Woman by Gail Elliott
Mt Maunganui (the Mount), where I live. It takes me a minute to get to the beach through the reserve over the road from our house. The Main Beach at the Mount has been voted ‘NZ’s best beach’ by Trip Advisor for the last 7 years so word is getting round. We have a mountain, a harbour and a surf beach in close proximity so it’s pretty spectacular.
What's your star sign?
The Sherwood, Queenstown. We just discovered this amazing place last week - they have turned an 80’s hotel into a beautiful design conscious eco-retreat.
Frozen berry & mint margarita - at the moment - this changes quite a bit!
Any favourite Little Joe Woman pieces and why?
My favourite is the Heart of Gold Dress. I have it in Zebra, Jaguar & Coral. It’s the perfect length for work. The Heart of Gold dress looks great after hours too, though you can’t beat the Vision of Love Silk Maxi Dress for an elegant evening event.
The Rock With Me Jacket looks amazing over everything and I never fail to get compliments on it. I have it in White & Sky Blue.
I’m also in love with the Montana Boot - the beautiful soft leather is so comfortable. I have them in White & Black and I’m about to get them in Caramel.
Favourite piece of jewellery?
My diamond necklace (Coco & Florence), my eagle necklace (Zoë & Morgan) and my antique star ring (Coco & Florence) - all given to me by special people.

Memories of your favourite event / dinner party and why?
A few of my favourite friends arranged a catered dinner party at our house for a birthday present. I have some seriously talented friends so the house looked amazing and it was so much fun.
What’s your fashion style?
Laid back luxe. A simple silk dress in summer. Jeans & a cashmere or silk cami & jacket in winter.
What are you working on?
Marketing is my baby. I’m constantly thinking about how we can set ourselves and our clients properties apart. We also just purchased a new office space so I have my work cut out to make it beautiful & functional before we move in & host some utterly gorgeous events!
Any secret talents?
If anyone ever pulls out a hoola hoop, I seem to be able to do it!
What have been your quarantine saviours?
Beach walks & bike rides, Netflix, G&T’s on our sunny deck
Can’t live without?
My awesome tribe of family & friends. They keep me real, they make me laugh and they steal me away from work. We go on the best adventures and I love them all to bits.
