British brand Hobbs started life in 1981, originally producing shoes before developing a contemporary clothing collection. Today the brand produces quintessentially British pieces under a number of sub-brands within the Hobbs family and my favourite by far is NW3. Here you will find such gems as the Dennis the Fox leather belt - which has its buckle at the back and the fox detail at the front making it perfect for cinching in dresses and tops! And how could anyone resist the Ollie the Owl and Margo the Mouse items? I really love the use of traditional, British wild animals in the NW3 range! Also gorgeous is the Floating Feather dress from the main Hobbs range. My only gripe is the shape as I'm not sure it would suit me... but I may just have to pop into a Hobbs to find out for sure ;)

Let Lily Know: What do you think of these pieces? Have you ever bought anything from Hobbs?



  1. Omigosh the foxy belt is delicious! DO WANT!

  2. I have a few things from Hobbs actually, the quality is always good and you can get a bargain in the sales.

    Recently I got a chunky NW3 scarf.

  3. The dress is absolutely stunning, I love the feather print, very unique and also, elegant <3

  4. That t-shirt is adorable! And I love the fox belt xx

  7. Hi Jenny, I always thought the same! I think it depends which branch you come across - the Brighton one stocks NW3 and is more welcoming than some I've come across! Otherwise... online shopping is my friend ;) hehe x
