When I first moved to Christchurch one of the places I was recommended to visit by several people that live here was a little shop on the high street called Kiki’s Boutique. Kiki’s is a family run business that has two gorgeous shops in Christchurch and in Lymington, along with their website. I was over the moon when I finally visited to find it full of cute girly dresses, lovely jewellery, gifts and accessories; I always think that if I was a shop I would be Kiki’s Boutique, it’s literally right up my street (well, not quite literally, it’s about a fifteen minute walk!).
Since then I have bought several bits from their shop; I love being able to support local businesses and it helps that their stuff is gorgeous. So when they contacted me recently to see if I wanted to review something from their ‘new in’ section they didn’t have to ask me twice! I spent quite some time perusing all their dresses before I picked this gorgeous belted dress by Louche. I have been waiting for a sunny day to take it on its first outing, as for me this dress deserves to be swished along promenades in the sunshine or worn in English country gardens!
I am so in love with this dress and can see me wearing it all the time. I’m lucky enough to be able to wholeheartedly recommend Kiki’s – in this day and age it’s rare to find an independent shop who are so passionate about their products and clearly choose them with love! I’ve spent this afternoon eyeing up all the gorgeous jewellery on the website too – I feel this outfit needs this brass heart key necklace to make it complete!

If I haven’t already convinced you that you basically need to own everything that Kiki’s sells I should probably also mention that they do free express delivery if you spend over £50, and you can get £5 off your first order if you sign up to their mailing list. I hope you love their stuff as much as I do.
