Happy 50th Anniversary Miniskirt

The credit goes to Welch designer Mary Quant, who invented the now infamous leggy garment. eBay bows its head to Mary for sparking a true cultural revolution. An estimated 400 minis are sold on eBay per day, nearly 3,000 per week and more than 152,000 every year. Go Mary! You can check out more interesting facts about miniskirts here!
