Hello, I'm Mariela!

 

 
As a child I had a deep love for fashion which would later turn into my career. I've done everything from lead buyer, visual merchandiser, to curating runway shows. In 2015 I founded Killem With Chic - a tee shirt line I named after seeing this quote, CHIC - Creating Happiness, Inspiring Confidence, I thought "that's the sort of movement I'd like to create." A few months after launching KWC, my momma suddenly passed away. This lead me into pursuing my passion with a new sense of direction and purpose - I Don't Give A Chic quickly materialized. In early 2019 I learned how harmful the fashion industry is not only to the planet but to women all over the world. I knew I had to do something and bittersweetly stopped production of my tee shirt line. I now travel full time with @lejoyride visiting and living in different countries, states, cities and towns wandering into every single vintage / thrift store in search of unique, quality, rare, and sustainable fashion. I have always believed that my calling is to empower women both inside and out, and I am so happy and proud to be doing it sustainably now.
