This one I was tempted to buy just for the brand name.
I doubt that they are the surnames of a business partnership.
Perhaps referring to the appropriate venue for this range of skirts.

I bought a nice lightweight pleated mini skirt on ebay (surprise!) but when I used google translate on the brand name "De Puta Madre" .......... I am not so sure that it is a nice skirt.

There are more translations possible in urban slang, less vulgar but it is still not a password into the higher circles of society.

To go way off topic:
About 50 year ago I talked to a high ranking guy from the Dutch ambassy in Paris. He said that if you were in a foreign country and not speaking their lingo, first you have to learn a very bad curse word, then learn to count from 1 to 10 and after that you can try to learn some nicer words. With that curse word you can express your displeasure and with the numbers you can deal with the people money wise.

Hmm. I prefer:
Hello
Goodbye
Yes
No
Please
Thank you
and some numbers.

I feel that list would serve me better. But each to his own.
Keep on skirting,

All over Spain, "de puta madre" means extremely good, appealing, desirable. It applies to people, situations, experiences, anything. -- https://www.urbandictionary.com/define. ... ta%20madre

I had it from a senior ambassy guy who travelled all over the world for years and not as a tourist. He saw the unpolished side the world. Personally I also prefer the friendly approach but knowing a curse word might be handy if needed.

Happy Cow. Perhaps one cow is happy because it is some other poor cow's skin that is recycled.

At first glance, denimini, I thought it was a waist/belt bag.
After doing a "Double-take" I saw that it was a micro-mini skirt.
:oops: That skirt wouldn't cover my back-side :rofl:

If it had 90% pockets, I'ld wear it as a belt-bag, but without the belt ;)

Anyway, good find :!:

About the floral skirt - - around here, most of the floral designs are in polyester.
I agree, they can - and do - get hot. Not the most coolest material around :D
