Carolina Herrera Exclusive Preview
The Carolina Herrera event at The Shops Of La Cantera was an exclusive look at their spring collection. I had never been inside a Carolina Herrera store. I had seen her beautiful creations on red carpets and had been mesmerized by the stunning styles. When invited, I only knew that she sold high-end dresses.
As I walked in I was immediately surprised to find a variety of handbags and everyday items such as scarfs. The bags came in many different colors and styles, all with the CH logo on them. I was very impressed with how soft the leather felt. It was nothing like what I’d seen before. The scarfs had bold prints and bright colors. They looked as if they were pieces of art. While indulging in champagne, one of the salesmen guided us to the back of the store where is show a few pieces and gave a few fun facts. For instance, did you know that Carolina Herrera always creates something in red for every collection?
Afterward, we were encouraged to try things on. I shopped the racks as I waited for a dressing room to be free. Bold is an understatement as she included emerald greens, royal blues, and red. Every piece was beautiful on the hanger but they way each item looked worn was breathtaking. A blogger friend of mine tried on a black and white dress that was simply gorgeous on her.
I took home so much inspiration from this event that I am sure will be used in the boutique. One thing to note here is that no matter how insanely beautiful these dresses are, the dress doesn’t make the woman in it. The woman makes the dress. However, the style may just give her the confidence she needs to own it.
I was not paid for this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
