Turbans Turbans Turbans!


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!

The Lola Belt


 

 

 

 

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♥

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lost Garden


The long days of summer are leaving us soon…  it’s time to store all of our fresh summer clothes and start preparing the boots and coats…

Don’t you long for a lost garden, where summer afternoons and sea breeze are eternal?

WWD Magic Las Vegas 2012


 

I can’t contain my happiness of being able to visit WWD MAGIC this year! I took many pictures for all of us who dream of being part of this amazing show in the future. 

For all of you who don’t know about Magic, it is a fashion trade show dedicated to the Ready-To-Wear, business, trends and Buying aspects of fashion.  I believe it holds the same or even more importance than New York Fashion Week. 

 

 

 

 I loved the succulent displays at Dylan, the clothing was out of this world!

 

 

I was very surprised to see the oversized flowers that Design Sponge and Ruche placed on the spotlight, now being displayed all over the show! They really give a new dimension to the clothing!

 

 

Window Shopping anyone?

 

My favorite fashion show was the swimwear fashion show, where delicate swimsuits show what’s to come Spring 2013

 

 The Darling display was one of the best ones! And the oh! so delicate clothing and accessories stole my heart. 

 

I hated the closed booths, however this one turned heads!

 

 

 

 

As a designer, it is an energizing experience! I am very glad I didn’t miss it and that I will be attending every year!

I wanted to give you guys a tour of my studio. This is where I design, and make the clothes you buy or like! Tell me what you guys love, or hate (any advice is great!)

During the past weeks I have worked on the SPRING/SUMMER collection, honestly I am very late, but then again, is always summer in Miami. What you see in the racks is the collection,  it looks beautiful with all the sorbet shades, and creamy pastels! The collection will be available to pre-order online the coming weeks, and in store since May 20th (NOW).  Some items are ready to ship, some others take 2 weeks to make, some others 4 weeks, so keep in mind that buying a one of a kind takes time and patience 🙂

Saturday we went to visit The Vizcaya Museum, a gem in the middle of Miami. Vizcaya is the perfect place to have picnics, read a book, relax… I can’t believe I rarely see young people there… mostly old couples and tourists. The Museum serves tea in the garden every Sunday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, don’t miss it 😉

I have received a lot of emails asking me who are my favorite designers, the truth is that I am not crazy about any particular designer, but I do love well constructed pieces, of the best materials, and that fit my taste… I loved this J.crew dress! the moment I entered the store it had to be mine… the fit is perfect, and the oversized polka dots give the classic print a contemporary twist.

As I said before, the Museum is amazing, however, I was really saddened to see mountains of trash in the woods next to the bay. It made me think a lot about how detached we are to trash. When we dispose of something we detach ourselves from the waste thinking it will travel far away, but in reality a big part of it comes floating back to us… take a look at this picture and tell me if it doesn’t make you sad:
