Hey, so we thought we would make our blog this week a little more personal and let you get to know the girls in our Victoria St shop a bit better. We’ve done a mini interview discussing fashion, eateries and the hidden gems of Edinburgh.
Favourite brand at Swish:
Jane – I love the newly re-branded Numph. Really easy to wear, casual tees, knits and dresses that have their own quirkiness about them. Brilliant quality too. Also Closet dresses that all fit amazingly!
Viki – Its a tie between Vero Moda and Numph. Vero Moda has good quality and value so it’s great when you want to treat yourself but can’t afford to splurge. Numph is great if you want something a bit different, their summer lines we have in at the mo are just brilliant.
Sophie – Numph, because the range is always fresh, stylish and quirky. The quality is top notch and there’s a piece for everyone.
Pick of the week:
Jane – I LOVE the “Julienne Knit” by Numph, looks great with skinny jeans.
Viki – The “Cecilia Knit” from Numph. A nice soft thin knit. Great for the weather we are currently having, works as an extra layer but doesn’t feel like your wearing loads.
Sophie – Its got to be the “Make My Day dress” from Mina. It oozes vintage style and has such elegance. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
Jane – Holly Willoughby. She’s got class and always looks lovely whether casual or smart.
Viki – Natalie Portman. Whether she’s walking up the red carpet or just out and about she always manages to look effortlessly cool and pretty.
Sophie – Cara Develingne. Subtle ‘indie-rock chic’ style with super natural beauty. Her eyebrows are immense.
Favourite place to eat (Edinburgh):
Jane – For a nice meal: A Room in Leith down by the shore. Food after work: The Villager on George IV Bridge.
Viki – Chop Chop on Morrison St. Authentic, freshly made Chinese food. The unlimited buffet is so cheap and the food is to die for, I recommend the beef and chili dumplings.
Sophie – Shilla on Dundas St. Quirky underground Korean restaurant with a intimate atmosphere, perfect for first dates. The food is incredible and reasonably priced. After a quicky? The Tailend on Leith Walk, the best chippy in the world, everything cooked from fresh and a great selection of fish.
And for a drink…
Jane – The Fountain at Fountain Park… rough pub made nice.
Viki – The Chanter on Bread St. Cheery atmosphere, great staff and a great place to watch a game of rugby. Food platters are great also.
Sophie – Under The Stairs on Merchant St is dark, mysterious and cosy. Serves up tasty cocktails and scrumptious sharing platters. Interior is a mixture of brick walls and second hand chairs, super trendy!
Hidden Gem of Edinburgh:
Jane – The walk up Arthur’s Seat and the view.
Viki – Oink on Victoria St, the place with a hole pig in the window, friendliest staff and delicious food.
Sophie – Camera Obscura, a world of illusions. Interesting place to get lost in, things which make you eyes go fuzzy and your mind boggle! Pricey, but well worth it.
There you have it, have a great Wednesday ya’ll.
