A guest blog here from Georgia from the Greater Grassmarket Improvement District.
For me Edinburgh's Old Town is the perfect shopping experience. The harsh lights and panicked atmosphere of big brand, chain shops are a world away and instead you can spend the afternoon browsing local boutiques run by local people.
In these independent boutiques you'll find friendly and helpful experts whose passion for their products really is infectious. With their know-how and encouragement you can develop your style, and your confidence, in ways you had never dreamed of. And with such variety in the area, you can find everything you are looking for within our historic streets.
Today's Style in the City event focuses on exactly this - discovery and confidence. We've brought together accessories from our wonderful local shops to help style the shoppers of Edinburgh, and a great professional photographer to capture the moment.
If you have a dress for a party, a new jacket for work or a favourite look that needs a little refreshing we can help you develop your look and feel fabulous using products from lovely local shops and designers.
The free styling event is taking place on Saturday 29th March, 5th April, 12th April and 19th April at Grassmarket Community Project on Candlemaker Row and you can find out more at http://www.greatergrassmarket.co.uk/blog/2014/03/pop-up-fashion-photo-shoot
