Hidden Eloise Skirt is Back By Popular Demand!

We had an overwhelming response to this skirt at the beginning of the season, in fact they sold out in a matter of weeks! We decided it would be nice for all the people who missed out the first time round to have a chance to own one. So here it is, back by popular demand, The Hidden Eloise side pocket skirt!

It is the perfect weight for summer heat, a nice soft 100% cotton poplin and we love it to bits! Available in XS-L this skirt is a perfect fit high-waisted or worn lower on the hip, made in a slightly generous sizing to allow for this. You can grab one online here, or come into the shop to try one on (and get some chrissy shopping done too!) we’re open 7 days!
