Real & Rad is a Houston based sustainable fashion and lifestyle blog that’s here to inspire anyone who reads it. Its main goal is to show that fashion blogging can keep it real and relatable. It features a lot of thrifted items mixed with ethical and/or sustainable brands.


Hello! I’m Liliana Andrade. If you know me personally, you know I’ve been talking about starting this blog for quite some time now. I had a hard time starting it because I knew that when I started, it was going to become my lil baby. lol

I graduated from the University of Houston in Fall ’17! #GoCoogs I have lived in Houston my entire life! I am very passionate about sustainability and I hope to show people that sustainable clothing can be cute as well. I look up to brands that think about the bigger picture and are transparent with their customers.

Shortly before starting this blog, I came across sustainable clothing blogs and I was truly inspired. I try not to buy too many clothes from fast fashion brands and try to thrift them instead. This is challenging at times, but I try to make it work. I hope one day sustainable clothing can be more affordable, so, for now, thrifting and limiting my fast fashion intake it is!

Thank you so much for joining me on my journey of blogging! I am deeply appreciative of everyone who reads my blog(:
