Who We Are


My name is Melina, I am the crazy older daughter that said "Mom let's start a business!". Then there is Isabel, The Mother-Unit who was equally as crazy to say "Okay let's do it!". And certainly not least, my baby sister Diana, who has always been my shoulder to lean on whenever anxiety or depression would creep up on me. 

Together, we threw ourselves into the fashion industry! We have been around for roughly 5 years. We started out with a mix of handmade items to wholesale items found in Downtown LA. This has all been a learning experience for sure! Not just what we want to sell but who we are individually. We still have some items from a few years back, but I think we finally know what we want to do with this company.

First of all, honesty and quality. All handmade items are literally cut, sewn and packaged by us. We try our hardest to ensure you receive a quality item. I don't want you to come back because you need to replace something, we want you to come back because you still love that original piece you bought from way back. In this mission we will also be trying to break the mold of the "cut throat" fashion industry. Let's work together to make the fashion industry a fun and creative space! One of which we can all build each other up!

Secondly, we want to transition from generic mass produced items to strictly handmade items! And not just any cookie cutter apparel, but anything and everything fandom, nerdy, geeky, anime, scifi and high fantasy related goods! It'll be a slow transition - but we hope you have as much fun joining us in this journey as we are =)

Thank you for helping 3 Los Angeles girls find their passion and supporting any and all small family owned businesses.


Where do you get your fabric and other materials?

We genuinely try to ONLY purchase  American made products. Right down to our thread! Not surprising this can be very difficult often times than not. So much of our every day items are manufactured overseas. However, we try our hardest to find individuals that make and design in the USA. We connect with our local Los Angeles vendors or Etsy!

Why are some of your items so pricey!?

I try really hard to be as fair as possible when it comes to pricing. I understand not everyone can afford an $80 pajama bottoms (uhh me sometimes). As stated in the previous question of where our materials come from, since we try to support local artist and produce everything in the USA, their prices will reflect on our price. 

We are also a small family owned business, we don't receive amazing discounts like a corporate company, who buy in huge bulk. On top of all that, big corporations outsource all their labor overseas and often times pay unlivable wages and in poor working conditions. They cut the cost of human decency to maximize their profit margin.

That is why we here in LacedTea love and appreciate all of our customers for NOT JUST supporting us but your local artist/vendors.
