Style in the City

Personal shopper Laura Russell from Satisfashion

On Saturday I was invited to the launch of Style in the City at House of Fraser along with a few other lovely bloggers. The fashion event is part of the This Is Edinburgh campaign, and offers free styling sessions. These will be held at 'Dress-up Shops' which are popping up around the city centre on Saturdays - 5th, 12th and 19th of April. 

If you have bought a new piece of clothing for spring and aren't sure what to wear it with, help will be at hand from a team of stylists who will give you all the advice you need for free. Shoppers will also be photographed in their outfits, giving them a keepsake to take home. The Dress-up Shops are open 11am-5pm at Frasers (5th Floor) on Princes Street, Subercube on George Street and Grassmarket Community Project on Candlemaker Row. 

You can also pick up a free copy of the Edinburgh Style Map, which will help uncover some of the city's best shopping destinations. There are four routes you can take: Unique Boutiques, Designer Destinations, High Street Heroes and Old Town Indie Chic. There are a few shops marked out which I hadn't heard of before - and that's coming from a shopping addict! The maps are available at Lothian Buses travel shops, train stations and selected retailers. Go grab yourself one for your next shopping trip in Edinburgh.
