Halloween

Sorry I should have posted these photos from Halloween earlier but better late then never. It was really hard choosing someone to dress up as, but finally I decided to be Brigitte Bardot in her music video "Comic Strip" with Serge Gainsbourg. You can watch it here, because Youtube wouldn't let me embed it but I'm posting a photo of her below.

Bardot's suit looks pink here but it's actually purple.


This is when I still had my Helium balloons, I dropped them and seconds later they were high up in the sky moving towards the clouds.

Top-picks from TellusFashion

Hopefully you know by now that I'm blogging for Tellusfashion and they are selling beautiful creations of emerging designers. I've chosen my top-picks and I had a hard time deciding on just a few, so the list ended up really long. All can be bought on TellusFashion.com

Ekaterina Kukhareva dress
Strikingly beautiful, with fringes on the shoulders and hanging down the waist which makes it more dreamy.
Krishna Ramji bag
The blue color and the handy work on this bag really makes it one of a kind.

Dauphine dress
An exquisite and playful dress, I love the color combination.

Jerboa Jewellery, necklace
You can't take your eyes off this piece, colorful or elegant and white?

Marco Martinco leather jacket
It's hard to only pick one, the black leather one with studs or the green suede.

Milfani shoes
A baroque spin on the classic black stiletto, you can get them in different colors, leopard and zebra prints.

Adolfo Sanches dress,
Such a gorgeous creation and complementary for once body.
Trisori earrings
Gold plated with green zircon inset.

Hiding in the shade of a palm tree

Hi readers,

This Halloween weekend is over and the whole hectic stress about designing my costume has gone away, you'll soon see who I dressed up as... But I'm writing to you in an entirely different matter, I need to get something of my chest. I know that I have an amount of regular readers, I get a lot of lovely comments. Thank you!
I also know that now when I'm in California my posting have been very sporadic, I'm very sorry for this and I will try to post more. But I hope that you like what you see and I would appreciate it if you follow me on Bloglovin and/or Twitter. If you'd like you can always LIKE my Facebook page.

Much love
Carolinas Couture

My Favorite Swedish Model

Elsa Hosk in Free People's Book

Elsa Hosk might be my favorite Swedish model but there are several stars from my home coutry who might be more "successful" models like Frida Gustavsson, Sigrid Agren and Sara Blomqvist. The export of Swedish models to all the main fashion weeks are becoming a trend. Maybe because our countrymen and women seem to produce such beautiful creatures with pure faces and long-legged, thus perfect for the modeling profession. Elsa is a little bit shorter than her fellow colleagues and therefore gets more commercial gigs while not often seen in high-fashion ads or walking down the catwalk for the elite fashion houses. You might have seen her this year at the runway only at London fashion week; one of few shows she did was Sass & Bide (S/S 2012). She's also a Victoria Secret model and lately she's been featured a lot on their website. The most recent work she's done is appearing in the brand Free People's book. But I think she might be most famous for her Guess by Marciano ads which have been plastered all over the world at large billboards.
