Carolina Benoit Lookbook


I’m very happy to show you part of the look book of the Spring / Summer 2012 collection. It took almost 6 months to create, we feel it came out just right! You can shop for the pieces now on Etsy. Most designs come in S and M and only 2 of each piece were produced. Shop for them here: WWW.CAROLINABENOIT.ETSY.COM

A special thank you to Paula Velasquez for helping us out with the photography!

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:

Bag Oronton Vintage, Pants J.crew, Shoes Cole Haan, Shirt Vintage Storage & Rack, Bangle Hermes.

I rarely wear pants, with my big butt and not much upstairs and being so short, I feel that pants emphasize my pear shape in a negative way. Nonetheless pants are a necessary garment for the modern girl. When I do wear them they look like something like these J.crew pair, straight, slim and clean.

Don’t forget to enter my latest competition 🙂 There are 20 contestants so the chances of winning are high. Simply like me on Facebook, if you already like me, refer 1 friend, and have them sign your name and their name on the Facebook page wall. Click here to like.
