hi! have been reading your lovely blog for a wee while now but i think this might be my first comment... I had to comment because i'm from edinburgh (though I live in sheffield at the mo).
Anyway... i strongly recommend going to Godiva boutique (just off the grassmarket). They sell some lovely vintage and also stuff from Edinburgh College of Art fashion graduates. Analogue (bottom of Victoria Street) is also great - it's an amazing design bookshop with loads of cool magazines/fanzines.
There are lots of lovely shops round the grassmarket/victoria street area in general.
I'm probably biased but I do think Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the world :) - have fun! x

get along to totty rocks on victoria street and the red door gallery also on victoria street which has some amazing jewellery and general lovely stuff! armstrongs is a vintage shop in the grassmarket, harvey nichols is always worth a wistful wander (and has a great food bit you can actually afford stuff from!)
also just walk about and take in the beauty of the buildings!

I loved your comment, I have my notebooks covered with starts everywhere! :D

yeah, i absolutely love it downtown. really we only stayed there because it was the only place cheap enough and somewhat chic. the pod did very well at both plus i stayed just around the corner from it last time at the affinia 50, so coming back it was nice to be familiar with things.

next time though im dying to stay at the rivington which is actually right across from teany...those floor to ceiling windows? ahh!

maybe we can meet up next year then :]

I'm from Edinburgh, you'll have an ace time, it's a fab city! I'd recommend The Rusty Zip, a vintage shop opposite McEwan Hall and Bristo Square (my uni!) it tends to be less picked over than Armstrongs which many others have recommended. Armstrongs is still worth a look!
