What: Le Beau Maroc, 9507 Harding Avenue, Miami, Florida 33154
Why: Because I’m still living off the high of my “Moroccan Dreams” that’s why. My “Shireen’s Favorite Things” feature on the stylings of “Le Beau Maroc” (which means “the beautiful Morocco” in French) got such a great response, I wanted to keep the fashion ball rolling. This little boutique is not only a hidden gem with a warm, welcoming energy, it’s couture kaftans are exquisite, sophisticated and truly one-of-a-kind.
Owner Asmaa Benkirane (who was born and raised in Casablanca, Morocco) works with designers from around the world to ensure each kaftan she carries is created with the utmost integrity, complete with gorgeous materials, hand-sewn detailing and sophisticated styles. Her pretty pieces are a true reminder of the terrific trends her native country has captured and cultivated.
Honestly, you won’t find anything like these kaftans in Miami. Whether it’s a special occasion, a fun party or just a day at the beach, the stylings of “Le Beau Maroc” are beyond beautiful. Plus, no one else in the room (party, dinner, event) is going to be wearing what you’re wearing and really, isn’t that what every woman wants?
Where: The store is in the heart of the bustling little seaside town of Surfside. I love this part of Miami, mainly because it has a small town feel but, at the same time, it boasts the fabulousness of a big city with amazing retail shops and fab restaurants.
When: Monday-Thursday 11am-8pm/Friday 11am-6pm/Saturday 12pm-9pm/Sundays by appointment.
