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!

First of all, thank you for your support during 2011! It was so far one of the best years of my life! I am so happy to have my studio, showcase designers, work on my line and see my designs be worn by gorgeous women all over the world! Having this blog, the online store and the studio have brought to me many friendships from all over the world and this is what I am most grateful for.
Here are a couple of girls from around the globe who symbolize Carolina Benoit as a label.
Susana is a (listen to this) Biologist and MicroBiologist from Bogotá Colombia. She fits my label because of her intelligence and elegance. In her own words: “Carolina Benoit designs are exclusive, high in craftmanship and they make women more beautiful and glamorous. I love each and every single one of my purchases”
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.
To them, and all of my customers and fans from all over the world! Thank you so much for your support. I hope to keep making gorgeous designs for you on 2012!
(Coming up a post of my new year and all of my new jewelry!)
