Lily Spotlight: Hester Skirt

Since we have just created a new incarnation of the Hester Skirt, I thought it fitting to do a little retrospective on this cute garment. We've been making this mini skirt for 5 years now. It's seen different pocket styles, and different fabrics, some have been silk-screened, and some not. The common thread is the great fit and cute factor.

I have to confess that I have 5 of them - yes, five! I know it seems crazy but I've loved every incarnation and they are my favourite go to piece for walking out the front door feeling good. In my early 40's I told myself that I would stop wearing mini skirts when I turned 45. Thankfully my boyfriend convinced my otherwise (what boy is going to say "yeah, I think that skirt is too short"?). I will say that I only wear them with tights now, the legs not being what they once were. It will be interesting to see if 50 becomes my new cutoff point for this skirt. For now I am grappling with whether to add a 6th to the collection. Who am I kidding...the new striped version is waaay to cute to resist.
