MINT TAKE A BOW SKIRT: NOW AVAILABLE

Top: Sheinside c/o, Skirt: Leanne Barlow, Shoes: Nine West (similar)

The Mint Take A Bow skirt is fully stocked and in the shop!  As I was searching high and low for the right fabric when I was designing this skirt,  this was the color that stopped me dead in my tracks.  This color swatch sat on my nightstand for months and really propelled me to move forward with completing my design.  It is gorgeous…..if I do say do myself.

Shop till your heart’s content here!  I will be adding Poppy, the final color of this skirt on Tue the 29th!

POPPY

And the last color in the Take A Bow collection is Poppy.  The perfect orangy-red.  These skirts have become a lot like offspring to me, so picking a favorite would be almost impossible.  But lets just say that my Poppy Take A Bow skirt has made the highest amount of public appearances.  The color pretty much goes with anything.  I always say I’m not a red person.  But for this modern take on red, I make an exception.

Keep an eye on my Instagram, because I will be announcing the dates when these skirts will be available on leannebarlow.com shortly!  And I also wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone for your kind words, excitement, and amazing encouragement you have shown for this new skirt addition.  This has been a long time coming, and I am thrilled to see such a great response to them already!  It really means more to me than you could ever know!

MINT

I couldn’t design one of my favorite skirts without making it in one of my favorite colors!  This is the color that I initially fell in love with when I first selected the textile.  This is the color of fabric swatch that sat on my nightstand night after night, and this is the color that I designed my first prototype of the skirt in.  It is safe to say this mint skirt and I are having a little love affair.

SUNNY

My next Take A Bow skirt color reveal is Sunny.  The perfect shade of yellow.  This baby demands attention. And did I mention these skirts are fully lined?  Because they are.  No slips necessary!

Any guesses on tomorrow’s color?

TAKE A BOW SKIRT: KELLY

After almost a year in the making, I am finally able to introduce my newest skirt that will be available soon at leannebarlow.com! I have put a lot of long hard hours into designing this skirt to perfection, and I am pinching myself that I finally get to see it all come together. For the rest of the week, I will be revealing each color of the new Take A Bow Skirt. You got a little sneak peak of this color before, and today I am happy to bring you the Take A Bow Skirt in Kelly…..

 

I want to give you a little background on how this skirt came to be. About a year ago, I stumbled upon the most amazing fabric.  It was a linen/cotton blend, so it had the luxurious feel and drape of a linen, but the cotton gave it a softer, more wearable texture without the wrinkling that comes with 100% linen.  The colors were rich and amazing, and I literally slept with these fabric swatches on my nightstand.  THAT is how crazy I was about the fabric!  I knew instantly I needed to use it for the next skirt in my line.

For the skirt design, I basically took all my favorite aspects in a skirt and molded them all together.  I knew I wanted a high waist and full skirt.  Pleats were a perfect way to add the fullness, but keep the waistband from being too bulky.  It had to have pockets.  Pockets are the ‘be all end all’ in my opinion.  I mean…show me a paper sack, tell me it has pockets, and I’m sold.  And lastly, it needed a great wow factor.  A bow is the perfect feminine touch that makes this more than just a skirt, but a statement piece.  But the best part about it all, is that I designed the bow to be removable!  I created a separate waistband that allows you to pop on that big beautiful bow in the front or back, or gives you the freedom to remove it completley if you would rather opt for a big statement necklace instead.  So voila.  Three skirts in one.  This is, hands down, my dream skirt.  And I hope you love it as much as I do!

COMING SOON…

I am beyond excited to finally let you in on a new addition coming to leannebarlow.com that has been in the works for a LONG time.  I have spent countless hours pattern designing, measuring, stewing over fabric colors/textures, and working with textile factories, pattern makers, and manufacturers on this little beauty that will be making it’s debut shortly.  It is perfection in a skirt.  It’s got pleats, pockets, and a big giant bow that is…..wait for it…..removable.  So it’s basically 3 skirts in one.  I can’t wait to show you more (including all of the colors that will be available!).  It’s been hard keeping this all to myself for so long, and I am thrilled to finally be launching my Take A Bow skirt shortly.
