I have a folder on my bookmarks bar called "Shops", and rather than just the links to high street stores it's full of independent retailers. Hoy Boutique is one of my favourites. Every time I go on their website I come away with so many things I love and crave for later, so I thought I'd share it with you if you haven't seen already. It's mainly reworked, second hand or vintage pieces, with a great selection and incredibly affordable prices. If you fancy something a bit different that you can be happy knowing is pretty much one of a kind, Hoy Boutique would be right up your street.

Here are a few of the things that have caught my eye of late. All of the pieces are available at the time of posting, so snap 'em up quick if you like what you see!

This is in no way a sponsored post, I just love this site so thought I would share it with you! What are your favourite independent retailers? Or do you work for / own one yourself? I'd love to hear from you. xox
