Spending most of my time in Edinburgh, it can be easy to fall into routines. There are my regular coffee shops, delis and where I pop in when I fancy a treat, so when I was invited to see the best of what the West End has to offer, I jumped at the chance.
Edinburgh’s West End is perfect if you’re looking for a day of strolling round. It’s gorgeous – full of Georgian architecture (my favorite) and independent boutiques and restaurants. It’s also a whole lot quieter – so taking an afternoon to potter around is an absolutely heavenly way to spend a day.
One of my first ports of call was the Odyssey Boutique – an award winning collection of the most glorious lingerie and swimwear you can imagine!
With every piece in the store picked personally by owner Sarah, it’s a wonderfully curated selection.
There are bras which are perfect for everyday wear, as well as those which are definitely reserved for more special occasions. The price points for the underwear will also suit most – the pieces reserved for regular wear hover around the £60 mark, whilst those looking for the more intricate designs will be able to indulge for significantly more.
The store itself is an absolute jewel box – the walls are peppered with the most divine lingerie and swimwear you can imagine, and Sarah is on hand to advise and recommend pieces you might not have seen.
In addition to the most glorious underwear and swimwear, Sarah also stocks a neat selection of must-have beauty bits. Think the best fake tanks, body oils and sunscreens which are going to have you feeling like a goddess!
