Many will say that women don’t know what they want. They obviously are not talking about Cara Carbajal and Kahia Perry of Richly Clad. These two girls are go getters and knew well before starting their build out what Richly Clad would be like. You can find this Upper Kirby boutique inside a quaint cottage at 2705 Bammel Lane. The name Richly Clad represents style while simultaneously encompassing the way they want their clients to feel with they shop there. Owners Kahia and Cara were friends and worked together for years before they decided that Richly Clad was in their futures.
Kahia and Cara share a similar aesthetic but still have their own styles. Cara loves feminine things like lace camisoles while Kahia is a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl but their joint love for neutrals show in the selections available in the boutique. It’s really a minimalist’s dream which is why I was giddy just being there. They selectively add pops of color into the store as they see fit. Carrying over eight local brands, the clothing and accessories there are everyday wear. The pieces you get at Richly Clad will fit seamlessly into your wardrobe to mix and match with existing pieces. Around 50% of their items are exclusive to Richly Clad so you don’t have to worry about someone else wearing your new favorite finds.
Their goal is to give each customer a personal and private shopping experience. It’s not rushed or overcrowded like some strip center stores can be. Imagine you walk into your friend’s house and make your way to her closet. There you find the perfect tee, well made jeans, adorable dresses, and locally made accessories. That’s exactly how it feels to shop at Richly Clad! Spacious dressing rooms and the cutest bathroom ever really makes you feel at home. Kahia and Cara are even there to help you find and put together complete looks if you’d like another opinion of an outfit.
Go see Kahia and Cara at Richly Clad for a down home shopping experience. Enjoy!
