As you may know, last weekend I had a clothes swap party at my house and I really had a great time - it was great to have some friends over and do some "shopping" for free. I thought I'd share what I picked up at the swap - it's a pretty awesome haul.I picked up this "gothic lolita" style skirt - its still a wee bit small at the moment, but hopefully it won't be too long until it fits.I go this pretty corset - I've always wanted one! I'm not sure where I will wear it, but I will find somewhere!
I got a very cute green camisole style top - it has a peacock embroidered on the front, although it's a little difficult to see in this photo.
A couple of stripy tops - one slightly slouchy and one fitted and a little bit punk.
I also got another stripy cardi - its a bit of a summer top though so I guess I won't be wearing it for a while!Here's a few other bits and pieces I got - a necklace and a scarf with Australian dot painting on it - I'm not usually a big fan of dot painting but I really love this design. I also got some printable labels for crafty type activities and also the biography of Gok Wan - I love Gok! This wee frock/skirt isn't my usual style but it's perfect for an island holiday and Rich and I are planning on going to Samoa or Vanautu later this year, so I decided to snap it up! I also picked up a couple of belts a cute blue belt and a kind of Ed Hardy style belt - I think the bottom belt is actually a hip belt, but I'll be wearing it around my waist. I also managed to pick up a couple of dresses at this swap - first up this wee vintage number. I'm not usually a fan of orange, but I thought I'd give this dress a go and see how it works out for me. I also got this wee shirt dress - the picture doesn't really do it justice - it looks much better on!Finally I got this great winter jacket - it used to belong to Ria and she called it her "Lady Gaga" jacket. It does need the zipper replaced, but it's in great condition.
I hope you've all been having a lovely weekend xoxo
