A couple of weeks ago I asked all of my Instagram friends which fabrics, textures or colors they wanted for the fall turban headbands and many replied: red velvet! So I made it happen. At the fabric store I found a rich hue of blue velvet and a fun black velvet with sparks of gold. I hope you like them!
What’s different about my turbans is that I use a lot of fabric for them, so they look full, and never like a simple headband. If you are not sure if a turban headband is for you, simply contact me and I can tell you which color or fabric is better for you. Some blondes look great with black and blue, while brunettes look better with red or royal blues… Christmas tip: these make great girlfriend’s gifts!
You can shop for them at the shop section of my website, or on Etsy: http://www.carolinabenoit.etsy.com
Have a great day! And spread the love please!

I am so very happy to have The Lola Belt finally up for sale! The project took a while to finish, and it’s my first time making belts! Thankfully I had an amazing production helper, and a very talented leather craftier who understood my sketches perfectly and even gave us advice on the manufacturing of the belt…
From the delicate stitching, perfect fit, high design bow, and the carving on the inside with the words: “Oh my Lolita I have only words to play with” This belt is a designer piece at a very affordable price 🙂 which is the goal of all the pieces I make!
The best thing of this belt is that you can wear it as a high-waisted belt, a high hip belt or a low waisted belt! And it looks great with any outfit! I couldn’t decide between all the colors, so when in doubt, get them all!
The red looks great with denim and lace, this is Lolita at its best.
The toffee is an instant classic, perfect to be worn with almost anything in your closet.
And black… Black is the new black, the perfect pop-up to any color!
♥Thanks for reading me♥

Beyond Miami’s gorgeous beaches and all the night life there are many places to find peace and culture. One of the most beautiful places in Miami is the Fairchild Botanical Garden… The photographs don’t do justice to this place.
The first time I saw a Baobab was at Fairchild, and it really touched my heart… Baobabs have a strong meaning in my life and looking at one and being amazed by its beauty and size is really something.
The Zen Lotus gardens are also breathtaking, and full of peace.
I took this opportunity to browse for inspiration for the coming collections… This dead leaf is perfect for color charts, and the leaves below are perfect to create silhouettes and textures.
There is a small river that crosses the gardens. Cold clear water cools the hot Miami day.
This leaf was almost my size!
I wore: Banana Republic Skirt (This skirt is almost Vintage, I think is 5 years old or more), a J.crew Sweater, Tory Burch Belt, Street Spardilles, Dior Sunglasses, Kate Spade Bag.
To visit Fairchild: www.fairchildgarden.org ***Recomendations***Don’t go on a hot summer day, drink plenty of water, wear comfortable clothes and a camera is a must!

French Lace Blouse by Carolina Benoit, Black Silk Pants by Renatta Lozano
to Shop for the lace top : carolinabenoit.etsy.com
This summer calls for a sweet tooth in fashion, I really can’t stop thinking about cake, macaroon, candy and caramel! Anything sweet but how do we translate it into fashion? Sweet lace, Icing textures, candy colors and a lot of romance!
All of my new clothes come with handmade finishes, hand burnt, hand sewn, french seam, silk trims and with a chain and charm that is also a necklace. I specially loved this top because it is romantic, yet very versatile, we can wear it during the day with a cardigan and jeans, and at night with a pair of silk pants like the ones in the picture of Renatta Lozano (She is a Colombian Fashion designer, check her out HERE)
❤ Thank you to all of my new followers! Don’t forget to like me on Facebook (All of my promotions go to my Facebook followers HERE and if you love twitter like I do : @carobenoit11
Have a great week filled with sweet candy-like fashion!

Leslie is a Fashion Marketing student from Canada. She loves to discover up and coming designers and blogs. She symbolizes the label because of her sweetness, cheerfulness and intelligence. Her taste is the perfect fit for a label like Carolina Benoit.
Amy (Center) is the perfect fit for the label, romantic traveler she symbolizes the label because of her beauty and elegance. Amy loves one of a kind designs and shopping for items which have a special meaning.
