Skirt Swaps From Brazil

Finally, I have got the chance to wear my gorgeous new skirts that I got from a clothes swap with someone from Brazil. Some might wonder why I would bother to swap with someone that far away in Brazil, but whilst it took a little while for the skirts to arrive it only cost £5 for the postage to return my swap items. I think they are really different from anything that I have seen in the UK and the clothes that I sent back were things that I don't wear, so effectively, I have gained 2 skirts for £5. If you have never tried swapping, I would thoroughly recommend it. It is an even more exciting feeling to recieve a swap package than to recieve something brand new that you have ordered online.

One is tie dye with a mixture of reds, greens, yellows, orange, purples and blues. The other has a dip dye effect in a peach and sort of khaki green colour, it reminds me of a sunset.

necklace - a local boutique

The skirt is bright red and very clingy at the back so I though that the longer hem on the back of the shirt covered it up a bit without covering the tie dye at the front.

I am sure that there are lots more outfits to come with the tie dye skirt. Also not sure of any of these outfits really do this tie dye skirt justice. I will keep thinking.

Great skirts, love the way you have styled them. What a great idea to swap with someone from abroad which enables you to get something really different!
