Hi! My name is Karla. Thanks for stopping by. I’m 19, born & raised in always-sunny Puerto Rico. I like tacos, dark lipsticks, and music, loads of it. I like to consider myself as a writer of all things “Beauty, Fashion & Life” related.
I created this blog a little over a year ago on my birthday, based on what I personally like to read and look at on other blogs.
On The Fashion Tea, you can expect fashion and personal style posts, where I went for breakfast/lunch/dinner, recipes, lifestyle posts of me wandering around with friends, and possibly traveling the world.

Karla is a gal with a great personality and it is reflected throughout her blog. Visit her blog here.

2) The Leather Fanny Pack

I’m Raissa, Latina style blogger / tacky supervillain from Oakland, California. Prince and intersectional feminism are really important to me. Vanity is a powerful tool. I think about death a lot.

1) Guest Post by Robin Avidor

The snow finally melted and sun came out. What a great day to go shopping Soho NYC!! You never know what you will find.

Well, I found a fashion education at Madonna & Co in Soho!

When you walk into Madonna & Company your first feeling is homey. A very luxurious home, like the most awesome closet ever! There is so much to see, things you won’t see anywhere else. This is what they have to say…”It’s completely and uniquely about you. We figure you’re tired of seeing the same old, same old so we’ve put the thrill back in shopping.” and it’s true. It’s definitely not a shop for only the wealthy woman. It is for every woman who loves to have a unique, edgy, NYC kind of style. That’s ME! The shop is very inviting and the staff is super friendly. I absolutely recommend that you visit them. Allow yourself plenty of time to take it all in, don’t worry there are comfy seats if needed! …….. Read more.
