I wanna be… Carolina Herrera

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s pretty typical to get girl crushes from time to time. Whether it’s a new friend you meet or someone famous you admire, but will never meet there are days that you daydream with thoughts about, “What if I was her”. Hence my new series ( I don’t think it will be weekly, but perhaps monthly) called I wanna be…

Today’s first featured lady is Carolina Herrera and here are my top 5 reasons for wanting to be her!


1. Her mother is fashion designer Carolina Herrera so you know she must have an amazing closet and has impeccable taste and style.

2. Her home was featured in our beloved Domino magazine.
{ I remember being in a awe of her massive bathroom that is decorated like anything but a bathroom. The cow hide rug! The striped chaise! All of the bathroom fixtures seem to disappear it just looks like a cool sitting room.}

3. She lives in Madrid. Now I have yet to make it to Madrid, but I just know that Spain and I would just get along famously.

4. She actually told Elle Decor magazine during an interview that she had just grabbed 14 chairs out of a garbage pile, because they were perfectly good old chairs. Ah totally a girl after my own heart.

5. She is daring with design and has not 1, but 2 rooms in her home upholstered with fabric and trimmed out with jute and nail heads.


So, I’m smitten what about you?

    The white gown you love is currently on display in the CFDA Impact: 50 Years of Fashion exhibit down in Boca. I was there a few weeks ago. =)

  2. I’m such a huge fan of CH, and I’m in LOVE with Carolina Jr.’s home, absolutely stunning!

  3. I love her too. I remember the first time I saw her pink hall with the nailhead trim – I’ve been in love ever since! :)

    I couldn’t agree more! I had the good fortune to sit next to her at a dinner party for her mother’s store opening in LA a few years back, and I can tell you she is completely crush-worthy! She told me all about her farm (!!!) and what being a mother was like (this was before my daughter was born)–a total sweetheart!

    You are way prettier and your style is just as great. You also have a very cute baby boy. I rather sit next to you at a dinner party than Carolina. I ‘m sure you are more fun!
