It started innocently enough. I decided to order a skirt from Lesley Evers during their recent Winter Sale. When the skirt arrived, it was love at first sight. I was hooked! One order turned into a second and a third…. In a matter of weeks, I have become the proud owner of a Laura, an Erin and two Kelseys – and I’m incredibly excited about the new Spring collection!

In all fairness, I have been secretly enamored of Lesley Evers’ beautiful clothing line since I first discovered the website last summer. However, none of the boutiques in my area carry the brand, so I couldn’t just run across town to try on some of the adorable pieces. To see them for myself, I was going to have to take a risk and blindly order online. Let me tell you, it was worth it!
The clothes are divine, from the wonderful fit, to the fabrics and trims. There are even hidden details, like the cute rick-rack trim that decorates the hem of the lining on my Laura skirt. And these dresses and skirts are perfect for my lifestyle. The company has dubbed their dresses “The All Day Dress,” and they really are, even for a mom with three children under the age of four. They are classic in design, but modern in fabrication. With a mere change of accessories, they are appropriate for any activity I can imagine. And everything I ordered can be machine washed.
Best of all, this is a company that really understands its customers and cares about them. When my second order arrived, I was dismayed to see that my Erin skirt (a final sale item) was damaged. I called and left a message, and believe it or not, my call was returned by Lesley Evers herself! She told me she was the first one to arrive in the office, heard my message and didn’t want to make me wait for someone else to show up and return my call. How amazing is that? She assured me she would send me a new skirt and even took my order for an additional dress ( although taking phone orders from online customers is clearly not part of her usual duties). My replacement order arrived yesterday. I couldn’t have asked for better service!
