Happy New Year everyone! I hope all of you are as excited as I am for 2013! This new year is full of new projects, new goals and new surprises that I can’t wait to share with all of you! Here are some sneak-peeks for 2013…
1. 5 Girls night outs – Remember my 26 dreams list where I shared some meaningful goals for 2013? One of my ideas was to host five fun girls night outs and with time rushing by I need to start soon! It didn’t take long to have my friends RSVP to my DIY Girls Night Out Party. Next Thursday, the party theme is: DIY BATH SCRUB. Stay tuned for the Girls Night Out Day and for ideas on how to make your own party.
2. Monthly styled photo shoot with Jackie from Three Brooklyn Photography – I guess some of you noticed that the blog pictures suddenly got better! I own that to Jackie Segedin from Three Brooklyn Photography. Jackie is a girl who like me is starting her own business and has amazing creative ideas. She and I decided to come together to bring you a styled photo shoot each month, for inspiration, trends or just for fun! Stay tuned at the beginning of each month.

3. My Handmade Wedding – I am finally getting married to the man of my life in a religious ceremony later this year. This is the most personally inspiring project of my life and I can’t wait to share it with you step by step! I decided to go for a locally hand-made wedding, where most of my vendors are starting their own businesses, friends are helping me out with some DIYs and I am designing and working on The dress! This is such an exciting time for me and by sharing it with you I plan on receiving feedback, inspiration and support ♥
♥♥♥♥♥ Lots of LOVE ♥♥♥♥♥

Dress Carolina Benoit Spring 2011, headband Forever 21
This dress is from my Spring 2011 collection also and it does feel like sugar! 100% Silk, with bronze studs and 100% silk chiffon for the sleeves. Like all my designs, the inside is perfectly clean with french seams and bias tape, basically you are getting a luxury designer item…The silhouette is very 1960’s, but it has a completely modern twist. Can’t wait to have the whole collection ready and put it up on the website. But for now, I am accepting orders through www.etsy.com/shop/carolinabenoit11. Remember each garment is made to order so place your order now 😉
Have a great week start :* I will be blogging tons this week
Thank you for being with me during these 15 days! It was great to see how many new people subscribed, sent me questions, and wanted some of my designs!
A Spring 2011 sneak peek is my way of saying thank you!
Stay in touch! I will keep working on the blog more than twice a week since this project was such a big success!
Tank: ???, Blazer: J.Crew, Belt: Carolina Benoit Spring 2011, Skirt: Carolina Benoit Spring 2011, Shoes Banana Republic.
I will have the complete collection in 2 weeks at the most! So stay tuned, the garments won’t be available for purchase until March, however I will be taking orders.
Thank you for your support and I hope these 15 days served as inspiration or simply as entertainment.
Many of you asked me what camera I use, I use a Sony Alpha with a 55mm lens.
I was also asked where do I get so many cheap and stylish pieces, mainly I shop online. www.etsy.com is a great place to buy inexpensive hand made items. But my main technique is that I never stick to a brand or designer, I shop anywhere from flea markets, department stores or forever 21. At last, a combination of good luck and a good eye, you never know what you might find at Off 5th!!!
Keep submitting questions! I will open a tab for Q’S and A’s soon!
