I like to shop local as much as possible (unless it’s something very obscure or car parts, then I have to go further afield) and luckily for me I live very near a beautiful boutique called The Women’s Society. This style haven is celebrating it’s 10th birthday which is a real milestone and an admirable achievement for an independent. Victoria and her team offer a really personal service, knowledgable style advice and quality, stylish collections in an inspiring and comfortable environment. It’s one of those places where anyone can find something they like; I’m so fussy and yet find stylish pieces I love in the boutique all the time.
The boutique offers brands including Edblad, Religion, Maison Scotch, Yaya and JBrand, in store as well as online. I advise a visit to the boutique as well as the website because there are lots more pieces available in store plus the girls can help out with any style dilemma you might have. They also offer private shopping experiences and personal styling sessions, all of which can be booked through the store.
Below are some pics of my favourite pieces from The Women’s Society; dove shirt by Religion, star necklace by Edblad, dip-dyed coat by Second Female, tan boots by Hudson, fluffy jumper by Intropia, camel coat (my favourite of the favourites) by Soaked in Luxury, studded biker boots by ASH, scarf t-shirt & grey trousers all by Yaya, watch by Olivia Burton, tie-dyed t-shirt by Religion, sea shore scented candles by True Grace, biker jacket by Soaked in Luxury, star blouse by Maison Scotch and fringed suede skirt by Second Female.
On Sunday Victoria and the team invited customers to The Women’s Society to celebrate, shop, eat and drink amongst the latest Autumn collections. We were treated to live music too, it was a great day and further highlights the personal approach of this boutique. I don’t go to events like this anymore because I simply don’t have time, but I feel it’s important to support local independent businesses and the girls are all so lovely. Like I said, there’s a very good reason why The Women’s Society has been going strong for 10 years.
