This is the skirt that launched the idea. This image is where the concept for Bel & Beau skirts all started. Stumbling around Pinterest one day, I came across the ensemble pictured above and I couldn’t seem to get it out of my head. I had already been on the hunt for some dressy maxi skirts that I could add to my wardrobe and this image just added fuel to that fire. At first, it needed to be emerald, but when I couldn’t find anything remotely similar to an emerald maxi skirt that wasn’t made out of chiffon, I searched for any color. And yet I still couldn’t find anything even remotely similar unless it had at least $1000 price tag on it. I quickly realized that the dressy maxi skirts that were currently on the market were no where near affordable (or at least for my budget) and so I decided to make one for myself.
I went to Stacie and she knew immediately knew the image I was talking about. We went to work making my first sample skirt and it was exactly what I had been dreaming of wearing. Although I love each and every skirt from the Bel & Beau collection, I think my heart will always hold a special place for The Mrs. Maxi Skirt in Emerald.
