Hey there. I hope you're having a good weekend. It's been cold and rainy here. Our internet keeps going out so I did want to leave a comment on your blog. Take care. Have a great week. Cheers!

I think it looks beautiful, however I also think that I am way too pale right now, but with some tan it would look great!

love the nude shades, but i've been having trouble finding the perfect one for my skin tone lol.

and i've added you as well :)

Melmo said...

Isabel Marant's dress is my absolute favorite just stunning esp also with the boots.

haircutting in high heels said...

love the piled up hair on the first model and the blonde bob with shades on. Oh they are all fabulous from their hot hairstyles, nude and shimmery sheaths, to sexy wrap around heals. FYI tried several times to send you and email via your couturecarrie address and it kept getting returned .

meraldia said...

Pastels are such cool colors!

So many beautiful dresses! Lovely post:)

Hugs, my friend♥

Treacle (Stockings Addict) said...

This is a trend that I've always been a little afraid of following. Are nudes supposed to match your skin tone exact?

Belle de Ville said...

Carrie,
I just wanted to let you and your lovely commentors know that for the month of December there is a 15% discount for all jewelry on Beladora.com and Beladora2.com

The discount code: HOLIDAY09

Free Xmas delivery if ordered by Tuesday.

Grace said...

So inspiring, Carrie! That Dennis Basso one pretty much just changed my life.

Lili Von Shtupp said...

Are there any tricks to wearing nude tones without looking washed out?

Couture Cookie said...

I love nude tones, especially in sheer materials! Being pale does not stop me from wearing them at all....

Lovely pictures as usual! xoxox

Couture Carrie said...

Thanks for all your amazing comments, darlings!

And Belle de Ville ~ big thank you for the 15% discount at Beladora.com!

Lily: I think one way to wear nude without looking washed out is to put the focus on your accessories ~ gorgeous gold chains and/or a big belt and some statement shoes. Also, bronzer!

xoxox,
CC

English Rose ♥ said...

I love nudes for spring but I thought it was completely done to death on the catwalks and I always like to go against trends so i'll probably rebel in brights!

Darling im a bit in love with your blog - do you want to exchange links?

Thanks for your lovely comment

Hope you had an immense weekend

Stay safe and chic

Inty swetha said...

rossovelvet said...

A favorite color, it's so Alessandro dell'Acqua !

MizzJ said...

Gorgeous shades, but a bit tricky to match sometimes with your skin tone.. I prefer my nudes in shoe form, but perhaps I should venture into something modern and sexy with nudes!
