Last Wednesday night I was invited over to Edinburgh to visit a wee shop in the city called Godiva Boutique. I'd never been before so I wasn't sure what it was going to be like but its the most adorable little store!
In the front section of the store its all very kitsch and quirky and they have an open floor with a couch and a huge mirror covered in scarfs! I love this layout, it all feels very personal shopper yet still cosy as its open but feels so welcoming that i don't think anyone would be shy about coming out of the fitting room to show of their finds. If you visit the store you will understand what I mean. This is the area where they have all their local designers. I know a lot of Glasgow designers so this was exciting to get to learn about the Edinburgh designers and designers I didn't know about. They have loads of different bits too, clothes, bags, scarfs, purses and some lovely quirky jewellery and accessories.
Moving through to the back of the store you go in to the Vintage section of the store, full of great, very affordable vintage bits. I definitely notice a different in the prices of vintage from Glasgow to Edinburgh and Glasgow is usually more affordable, but Godiva have those Glasgow prices and a brilliant collection of gorgeous vintage dresses!
There was loads of fun things to do at the event, the staff really put so much effort in and had some great ideas, I've enjoyed an event so much in a while. There was demonstrations from Runaway Fox (more on that next) some DIY on how to make your own vintage camera strap from the Godiva girls, lots of amazing cakes and nibbles and a customization station!
The guys from Runaway Fox gave us a demo on their new Body Casting service, which they came up with while working of their new collection, which you have to watch out for! Lets just say it included a very real looking crab claw necklace and a very creepy pigs snout door knob, all animal friendly though!
They cast a few of the girls fingers in front of us to show how they do it, it was so cool! They then made the finger casts in to necklaces for the girls.

Thanks so much to the guys over at Godiva for the invite and hosting a brilliant night!
I can't wait to pop in the next time I'm in Edinburgh!
