Mayoress of Surry Hills pushes inner-city dress code boundaries

Surry Hills publican/retired film actress Doris Goddard of Hollywood Hotel fame looked right at home in her bar wearing this exotic silk mumu. No, she didn’t find it at the Congo Cross Market, she in fact picked it up from David Jones, Elizabeth Street store in Sydney some time in the eighties.


For those familiar with Doris, you will know that she’s one of the only people in Surry Hills not sporting a Bon Iver beard or black rimmed glasses. Thank you Doris for bringing resort wear to the inner city and railing against the scourge of settler chic that seems to have taken over your corner of town.
