Juxtaposed Wit U
A nice thing about Edinburgh is the cobbled together look of it. You're forever finding lots of small businesses dotted about in weird and unexpected spaces.
If I were a prude, this could be one of the more jarring juxtapositions; Organic Pleasures ("the world's first eco-erotic boutique for women and their partners [which sells] non-toxic pleasure accessories, organic body care and eco-luxe lingerie") is above a nursery. Of the type where little children are looked after, as opposed to one for plants.
As it is, I am not particularly prudish, and I sort of like the dissonance of these two disparate places being on top of one another. But not in a pretentious way, as I like to keep things real. Like Westwood, yo.
