As much as I love snagging a bargain piece at H&M, or stocking up on staples from Zara, there's nothing quite like supporting independent brands and shops.
Thanks to Instagram, I've been able to find the coolest stores for everything from vintage dresses to hand-stitched leather accessories.

View the gallery to check out 11 shop owners who not only have the hottest store offerings, but also totally dominate the Instagram game.
Fair Warning: This could be rough on your wallet.
