Since launching Very Stylish Girl online in 2017, it has always been the dream to bring the brand to life further by opening a boutique and, in March this year, the dream came true as I opened the doors to my first VSG shop in the town of Horsforth.

Living in Yorkshire and spending a lot of time in the Horsforth area, I have always loved the charm of the stone buildings on Town Street and I see many stylish women in the area who I believed would like a boutique like Very Stylish Girl on their doorstep. I also wanted to be amongst other long-standing independents who share the same passion of creating an out-of-town destination for those looking for something alternative to what’s available on the high street.

 The vision is the same as when I launched the business two years ago, to offer contemporary yet considered fashion in high quality fabrics for the woman who wants to be stylish whatever her age - all without the high price tag. I also wanted to create an environment where women can easily browse, try-on and buy in stylish surroundings whilst receiving knowledgeable and friendly customer service. Seeing the reaction from women when they try-on something they feel and look fabulous in is what I love and that’s why I opened the boutique.

Both in the shop and online, you’ll find curated collections from Scandinavian brands such as Kaffe, Soya Concept and Soaked In Luxury as well as our own-label, Very Stylish Girl.

As well as finding styles you can mix and match to create your own, individual look, you’ll also find a wide range of styles to suit any occasion - from everyday casual wear to something a bit more dressy for a special day on your social calender. To add the finishing touch to your outfit, or to buy as a gift, there is a range of affordable, statement jewellery from Big Metal London. I love to support independent labels so you’ll find beautiful handcrafted leather bags from Tori Lo Designs and casualwear and accessories from Etoile Lifetstyle. Both seasonal and in-season collections arrive regularly and to always offer a further element of freshness, I am always looking out for new, niche brands I know you will love.

As well as all styles being available on-line for national and international delivery, we also offer click and collect so if you see something you like on our website, to avoid disappointment if it’s a popular style, order online and collect from the shop.

I hope to be welcoming you very soon to my Horsforth boutique.
