Christmas Bloggers Special: Camila Carril talks designer accessories and Brazilian fashion with Shopcade



From Brazil with love! Fashion blogger Camila Carril chats about her love for designer accessories, why Vivienne Westwood should be designing Christmas trees and what’s on her Shopcade wish list this season…

We are getting close to Christmas! What’s in your Shopcade wish list?

A lot of things! You can check them out here!

What has been the best present you have received? And the one you would rather forget about?

I don’t have a gift I would rather forget. But I have one that I will always remember: six years ago my dad came home with a brand new suitcase. I knew what that meant. That was my best gift! The suitcase was his way to say he would allow me to come to London (at the time I was only 16). That changed everything and I will always remember the meaning of this gift.

Do you have an ‘it’ fashion item that you are planning to wear for this year’s holidays?

I haven’t thought about that as yet. One thing I know, during New Year’s Eve in Brazil it is a tradition that we wear white! So whatever “it” fashion item would be white.

Which film puts you in the spirit of Christmas?

It has to be Home Alone.

What are your favourite tunes for the festive season?

John Lennon – Happy Christmas (War Is Over)
David Bowie and Bing Crosby – The Little Drummer Boy
Bruce Springsteen – Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town
