When your business is selling vintage clothes and accessories, you really can't keep the best things for yourself, or you'd be out of business fast. But over the years Alison has accumulated a small wardrobe of items that she treasures, for their sentimental value or because they fit her body and her personality.
When a good friend, photographer Rod Spicer, offered to shoot her in some of those pieces, Alison was back in model mode faster than you can say Gucci. Here are the results, and for lots more of Spicer's work, with everyone from Wynonna to Beyonce, check out spicerphoto.com.
