Welcome

Hey loves!  If you are new to my blog Welcome! I’m so excited that you are here. If you’ve been following me for a while, this is just a quick reminder.

Social Media

To keep up with me on a daily basis, follow me on Instagram @rechycd. I don’t use any other platforms because I simply can’t keep up what everything else. In between my full time job and every thing else I have going on, Instagram is the only one I use. I might decide to start sharing on a separate Facebook account. I have family all across the country and outside the country so my original Facebook account is strictly to stay in touch with family.

Reselling 

I’ve been reselling clothes for a while now. I’ve sold clothes on Poshmark for about four years now and eBay from time to time. I’ve accumulated a lot of clothes over the years from thrifting and shopping. Since moving into a small place, I’ve had to donate and gift a lot of clothes. I’ve decided that with the rest of the items that I have left, that I will be reselling. I love vintage pieces and while I will be reselling items that are brand new with tags; I’ll also sell one-of-kind vintage pieces and any other pieces that I deem cool for resale.

On Poshmark, you can find me at @theo_dores and on Instagram, you can keep up with my shop at @rechycd_store. The instagram account will be more to update you all on new pieces and of course, to promote the account. However, on the Instagram account, the link in the bio section will redirect you to the Poshmark app. If you don’t have the APP you can download it on your smartphone and get a $5.00 credit using coupon code THEO_DORES. Once you download the app and use that code, a $5.00 credit will be uploaded to your account. You will also have your own code to share along with friends and family.

DISCLAIMER This IS NOT a paid post from Poshmark or an advertisement.

I am sharing with you all where I’ll be selling in case you happen to fall in love with a piece featured on the blog. I plan on selling directly through my blog. However, for now and until further notice, I will be using Poshmark.

Happy Fashion and Happy Blogging.

Silk Wrap Blouse + Velvet Culottes

Fashion Rule: If you’re 5’4″ and under, NEVER wear Culottes, A-line Skirts or anything that stops right above your ankles.  Rules are meant to be broken.

There’s this huge misconception in the fashion world that people under 5’4″ should avoid clothing that stops at our ankles because it will make us look short or as if the “outfit is wearing us.” While, this is true. If done right, you CAN wear such pieces if you’re 5’4″ and under; you just need to know how to do it. I’m no expert, believe me. However, speaking as someone that happens to be 5’4″, I know all too well about what works and what doesn’t. Whenever I do wear pieces that sit just above my ankles, I usually do the following:

  1. I make sure the skirt/pants sit right above my waist and tuck the blouse in.
  2. Since I’m small chested, I can get away with blouses that have ruffles etc. but I make sure that the design doesn’t swallow my waist as this is the area that I want to accentuate.  However, I usually stick to a top that’s fitted and that I can easily tuck in.
  3. I usually wear pumps/stilettos and avoid shoes that wrap around my ankles. I never wear boots because it really does shrink me. However, I have seen short women pull this off effortlessly; it just doesn’t work for me.
  4. Avoid things that will make me look frumpy and shorter than what I really am.

However, I will say this: YOU have to know your body – what works and what doesn’t. In the end, wear whatever the hell makes you happy!

Outfit Details

Now that we’re done breaking rules, let’s talk about today’s outfit. That top was actually a steal because I bought it at Goodwill for $3.49 BRAND NEW WITH TAGS. (My gut feeling tells me that this was purchased from The Limited’s liquidation sale from last year and since items were final sale and you could not return them, the buyer donated it to Goodwill. Why do I think that? There were a ton of The Limited items at Goodwill that day, lol.) Anyway, back to the outfit.  Originally when I purchased it, I thought I was going to wear it with jeans but when I saw my velvet culottes, mind changed. I love playing with different textures and patterns and mixing these two together really made the outfit stand out. This top is the perfect cocktail dress replacement. You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort because you can still be a standout with this piece.

I’m a huge fan of navy and black combination and this was the perfect outfit to mix those two colors with. I accessorized with a black and pink clutch; I just loved the pop of color. The shoes were another steal: $1.39 at the Goodwill Outlet O_O BRAND NEW! These were the perfect evening shoes for the perfect evening and I didn’t have to sacrifice comfort.

Weekend Adventures

I have to admit but this was one of my favorite shoots! I technically broke the law for this shoot but that depends from what law or legal stand point you are looking at this from. However, the important part is that I was able to take these amazing photos at this amazing location.

The outfit details are simple. Black pants, striped pants and black loafers. The top was thrifted and it was only $4.50 (score).

Enjoy them!

Happy Fashion,

Karla.

Linen – Summer’s Best Friend #OOTD

Summers favorite fabric?! Linen of course!

I have a special kind of love for linen because it can make you feel naked and cool even in the most treacherous weather conditions. This is a lovely linen dress I scored at  Goodwill for like $3.00 (totally winning) and it is completely vintage but oh-so cool ( in every meaning of the word).

I actually “styled” my hair – more like twist it to the side and called it an up-do –  but to my defense it actually does look style. I wanted to wear my leopard heels with this so bad because I just love leopard and burgundy. I added burgundy lips to match and of course my super sleek sunglasses to match.

Hope ya’ll digs.

T H R E E M I X – GINGHAM PANTS

These pants are definitely a big hit in my closet. I love how completely flattering they are on my shape and comfortable they are. Which is probably why I have wore these three times but I remixed every piece. My favorite of the three is the long sleeve polka-dot look. There is something so chic and vintage-y about this particular look. Happy Fashion, Karla. SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC

In these streets

Wynwood Street Art. Side note: The headlights reflect on my shirt; too fxking cool!

Happy Saturday loves!

If you are ever in Miami, FL (not South Beach, because those are actually two different cities) you have to make sure to make a pit stop in Wynwood a.k.a Design District and check out the sick art there. There is soooo many cool art around the neighborhood that you might just want to take a picture of it. However, make sure you do so soon. Unfortunately, because of the heavy construction, commercialization and retailers that have opened in the area, several of the art galleries in the neighborhood are moving :(.  Hopefully the street art remains but that is still to be determined.

The Outfit Details:

It was a tank-top and jeans kinda day for me. I did have an early start so I pulled out the jacket but honestly by the afternoon it was a warm 84 degrees. However, by the evening it’s set to be “cool” so I’ll keep the jacket with me, just in case I need it. I added the shoes for a an extra “kick in my step” and because I practically use any excuse to wear leopard. However, this is one of those outfits that you can pretty much wear just about any pair of shoes and the outfit will still look good.

Total Cost of this Outfit $94

  • Top $4
  • Jeans $4
  • Wool Coat $4

Target Midi Dress

Target Midi Dress

Target Midi Dress

Hello Loves,

Today I bring you the midi dress I got at Target for $17.99 on clearance! Yes, ladies and gentlmen off the rack ( if we can say this considering target’s clothes are already cheap). I have to admit though, I did buy the dress about a size too big but it was the last one and I just couldn’t help myself; besides, it doesn’t fit too big so I’ll have it taken in. This is a very comfortable dress and I am surprised I did not see it before; either way, I am glad I didn’t because I got it for a very small amount. I also splurged on another few items while at Target. I was able to find the python pencil skirt from the Altuzarra collection for $10.58 and the sheer bow tie top for $8.99 ( score)!

Fierce!

Fall Colors paired nicely with florals.

The Outfit

I had been on the hunt for the perfect Midi dress and this one fit the bill. I love the material of the dress, it’s not “bandage” where it hugs every nook and cranny that you want to hide, it actually hugs your curves and hides the “love handles” lol. The print is the second reason why I wanted this dress. I love a good floral print and I love it even more if I can wear the print and/or piece year round. I accessorized with a pair of oxblood shoes because I wanted that color to stand out from the floral print and paired it with a nice blush bag. I kept the jewelry to a minimum because you don’t really much when the dress is this gorgeous.

Total cost of this outfit: $122.99

  • Dress $17.99
  • Shoes $20.00 (On Sale)
  • Bag: $80 (On Sale)
  • Sunglasses: $5.00

“Fall”

SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC

Ok, so today was a rather strange day. We got “fall” like weather in Miami and I must admit, I was one happy camper. Finally, we have opened our doors to a cool breeze, very low humidity and a “feather weight” chill. It was perfect.

Since the weather was soooo lovely today, the weather inspired my outfit. I decided to sport these black legging jeans from the gap, liquid chunky boots from the gap and a green top I bought at my local Marshall’s. The outfit was cool enough for the breeze but light enough for the heat. If there is one amazing things about this city, is that you need to learn how to dress for it. Our winters are extremely mild (snowbirds don’t even call them winters) and our summers are very hot. I topped this look by picking up my hair and a bold oxford blood lip. I wanted my outfit to represent the dark colors of fall.

This was my Friday OOTD. Which most of the outfit was purchased at Goodwill.

I decided to wear this beautiful skirt from H&M that I found at Goodwill a while back. The skirt was still brand new with the tags. I paid $8.00 for the skirt, score! The shirt is also a Goodwill find, it’s a DKNY shirt and I paid $3.00 🙂 Lucky girl, I know. The clutch was also a Goodwill find and I paid about $3 for it as well.

It was a hot summer day again in Miami so this outfit was more than fitting.
I absolutely love this outfit, it was chic, simple and sweet. I have to admit though, the bangs made it look retro which was another cool factor to this outfit.

Rock-n-Roll it’s Wednesday!

SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC

Hey everybody!

It’s the middle of the week and that only means that the weekend is near! For those casual days that when we want to look chic and simple, I like to wear one of my favorite rock band t-shirts, jeans and a nice pair of suede platforms.

I love the simple t-shirts and jeans combo. The best things about this combination is that you can wear it up or down. I wore them a little “up” this time since wearing them with sneakers was just a bit too simple for me.

I was lucky enough to find this shirt at Goodwill for $3.00! The jeans are from Gap, because I just love Gap jeans. I must confess, I only wear Gap jeans *guilty pleasure*. The shoes I can’t get enough of and as I have said before, I bought them at Goodwill as well for $8.00. This outfit cost me a total of $23.00, ( jeans were $11.99). Welp, hope everyone is having a wonderful time.
