Lily of the Ages: My Sakamoto

While I was drinking coffee this morning I was thinking about what to put on today's blog about 'vintage' Lily. I came up with a brilliant idea to show you the very first skirt we produced. On my way down to the basement to haul it out of my "clothes that I love and really hope a) they come back in style or b) one day it will fit me again" box, I got sucked into watching the Tour de France. It was pretty exciting finish today and local boy Ryder Hesjedal came in forth. Anyways long story short, time was a ticking and I never got to the box. I quickly changed into my favourite skirt, the Sakamoto. This is my stand by skirt for when I'm either in a rush or when I go to an outdoor concert. This skirt has seen Flaming Lips, the National, Modest Mouse, Flight of the Concords and a lot more. Many of these I've seen with Glenda whose concert skirt is the Utility skirt. I'm sure I have a photo some where of both of us in our full concert gear, I'll post it as soon as I come across it. Plus I'll pull the old skirt out and show you next time it is my turn to show you something from our past.

Oh yes, the concert skirt! How many times have the Sakamoto and the Utility skirts had adventures together? Many many times, with more to come I hope. Perhaps we'll have to take them to the next Flaming Lips concert (Malkin Bowl in September!).

I'm curious about the very first skirt! Good luck on the hunt - I know those boys in tights can be distracting!
