Carlas’ Recs


A compilation of Carla Vila and Carla Houston’s favorite things, places and much more.

Who are we?

We are Carla Vila and Carla Houston. Two Carlas in Los Angeles. One’s from El Salvador. The tall one is from Cabo. We like pretty stuff, mostly at a budget.

Hope you like it! Please share with your besties.
