I came across Hub (an independent boutique in Stoke Newington) late last year. Much as I love mad clothes, the minimalist, preppy style of their stuff is really appealing.

Run by two sisters, Hub has been going since 2002 and there is a men’s store too. Their collection features British designers and the clothes are manufactured in the UK using British fabrics.

This Beth Graham silk shift dress is particularly yummy (wouldn’t it look fab with my pink nails?) – and it’s on sale right now:
