Gazam Galore




So it’s pretty obvious by now that I have a lot of love for rainbows. This can only be threatened by my slightly greater love for rainbow tie dye. Earlier this week, I was more than delighted when I received a parcel containing this tremendous tie dye treat...


RAINBOW TIE DYE SKIRT*: Gazam Tie Dye 
BLACK FISHNET SHAWL: TK Maxx Similar: here 
BLACK CROP TOP: Topshop Similar: here
BEAD EMBELLISHED SANDALS: New Look (Can't find on website?!) Similar: here 
BLUE STEAMED UP ROUND MIRRORED SHADES: MinkPink
CHAKRA BALANCING NECKLACE: eBay 

The lovely Sam (of Gazam tie dye) hand dyes every item for sale on her site - including this skirt! As I’ve mentioned before, I am a huge supporter of small businesses/handmade brands. Knowing that I’m wearing something completely unique and bespoke gets me very excited and no two pieces at Gazam are the same!  

This skirt certainly stands out from the crowd. The colours are so vibrant which does raise the question of durability. I have to admit that the very thought of adding another ‘hand wash only’ item to my ever growing washing pile was once enough to keep me away from tie dye. I know that’s lazy but, seriously, I may as well throw hand wash items away after I’ve worn them once cos I never actually see them again? I will get round to that pile one day though… and I’m sure it will uncover some fabulous forgotten frocks. Watch this space! Anyhoo, back to the point, with Gazam all your washing woes will be forgotten. Due to the high quality nature of the dies used, each item is completely colourfast. I’ve tried my hand at tie dye, and I wouldn’t say that the result was a complete fail, but skills like this definitely take some time to acquire. You can check out Sam’s shop here for her full range of designs.

When wearing such a statement piece like this, accessorization (yes, that is a made up word) can be quite complicated. The brown belt, which was included with the skirt, made everything so much simpler. In order to match, I opted for some brown sandals, my wrist watch and, although I don’t own one yet, I could totally imagine a fringed brown bag completing this look. For me, black really makes any colour pop so I witched things up a bit with this spectacular shawl. Very reminiscent of Rat and Boa’s Witchcraft Cardigan - don’t ya think?    

This will be my last post before I return to the beautiful city of Barcelona for this year’s Sonar Festival <3 Hopefully, if I'm organised enough, I will return with some sensational outfit posts! What festivals will you be going to this year and what are you planning on wearing?!

    1. They were taken in a small town called Settle which is located in North Yorkshire. It's so rural and beautiful! I had to to get some shots whilst visiting :) x
