u do tomorrow? Even more tricks with an animal in the name of art? (Yes, Holland actually has a political party that represents animals, not people.) Evidently, second hand, retro and deadstock. If you're interested in becoming a consignor, there are several tips you can follow to maximize your clothes' resale value more on that later. But before you haul a garment bag full of clothes to the local consignment shop, it's best to brush up on the following terminology to better determine what the store does and does not carry. Consignment: The act of selling an item on behalf of another person; in the event of a sale, the profit is split between the consignor and the consignee at a mutually agreed upon percentage. (My store offers a 50/50 split.) Consignment thus refers to the mode of inventory acquisition, not a specific type or age of clothing. For instance, my consignment store stocks both vintage garments and contemporary designer labels; some of the inventory is brand new o Louboutin Heels y with its rollers) while the beauty therapist tends to your pores. However, if you need to de stress, the city centre beauty spa and sanctuary CHI (36 George Street 0131 226 4040) will have the answer, as it offers a range of alternative therapies from holistic pulsing (a relaxing massage technique from New Zealand) to reiki and reflexology. PLACES TO SHOP WHILE Princes Street will give fashion addicts their high street fix, if you're looking for the unique, quirky or high end, it's better to venture off piste. Nearby Thistle Street arguably offers a better fashion hit, however. Here you'll find JANE DAVIDSON (52 Thistle Street, 0131 225 3280) and PAM JENKINS (41 Thistle Street, 0131 225 3242). Full of lust after names such as Ben de Lisi and Diane von Furstenberg, Jane Davidson is a favourite among well heeled Edinburgers and, once you've bought your outfit, all you have to do is cross the cobbles to Pam Jenkins to find a pair of matching Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin heels. It m Louboutin Heels ay be slightly removed from the fashion week frenzy but ARKANGEL (4 William Street, 0131 226 4466) in the West End plays tribute to young and edgy labels such as Pocket Venus, Ginka and Anonymous and is well worth the trek. Grown up fashion mavens may prefer SAM THOMAS (18 Stafford St, 0131 226 1126), which bridges the gap between high street and high end with its range of branded womenswear. And, after all that walking, treat your feet with some pony print pumps or some flowery kitten heels from shoe designer HELEN BATEMAN (16 William Street, 0131 220 4495). Edinburgh's boutique trail would not be complete without a visit to CORNICHE (2 4 Jeffrey Street, 0131 556 3707) which stocks some outrageous creations from the likes of Thierry Mulger and Jean Paul Gaultier. If it's vintage you want, head for the Old Town. A favourite with students and fashionistas on a shoe string budget, ARMSTRONG'S (83 Grassmarket, 0131 220 5557) stocks a number of quality second hand cashmere jumpers, tartan Louboutin Heels kilts and 1950s style dresses. HERMAN BROWNS (151 West Port, 0131 228 2589) is similarly eclectic and it's not unusual to find a Mary Quant number or a pair of Ferragamo shoes hiding in the mix. With its rail of student designers you might not recognise some of the labels at GODIVA (54 West Port, 0131 221 9212) but a trip to this vintage shop will reward shoppers with some unusual, one off finds. PLACES TO SEE AND BE SEEN ALTHOUGH the main fashion shows are sold out, you might be able to sneak into the after show parties at private members club THE HALLION (12 Picardy Place, 0131 523 1523) by attaching yourself on to the arm of someone with an invite.
