Happy Sunday Readers,
This #OOTD features my latest obsession, my new H&M printed trousers. I didn’t get to go out with the girls to the birthday party. Instead I decided to stay at home and play a little dress up. For this outfit I wanted to play with textures. I kept it simple with white strappy heels and an ivory top from H&M, for a clean cut-edgy look.
As you can see in a close up, my H&M top has a distress fringe style to it. Great for any time of the season, and can be paired up with jeans, a skirt, shorts, or like you se here with trousers. With the accessories I chose to wear my pink kitten sunglasses, to give it a playful twist.

Today’s post is a special one, well at least for me it is and this is because this is the first OOTD post that features a garment (in this case the dress) that I made!
The dress was inspired by my mother, I have always thought she is a classy lady. Like my sister Ozzy I had to dress a little conservative for a birthday party that I was attending with my father (you would know this if you would have read yesterday’s post.) The dress is in a stretch knit fabric that was very pleasant to wear on a hot day.
To give my look a bit of a “Didi” twist I paired it off with a black pearl necklace and draping chains. I also wear my favorite summer sandals, a pair of BCBG Generations strappy black sandals and a vegan envelope clutch.
Hope you like and I will keep creating more garments as I learn how to sew more…

Good Saturday Readers!
Today’s OOTD post is from 2 days ago, and consist of me going to work. It was a very cloudy day in NY, so my mood was as gloomy as the weather. Well a bit. And so on with this post, as you can see I kept a casual look. If you have read from my intro post (This is Rosie…) then you should know where I work, if you haven’t read it, then I am working at a Fitness Bootcamp. So there for, I need to dress comfortably.
What I’m wearing
| Tahari Blazer (that my Mom was trying to get rid off, but I came to the rescue) |
|H&M T-Shirt | Pacsun Skinny Jean |
| Converse Platform Sneakers | H&M Tote | Jewelry Vintage |
You’ll probably wondering “Why she’s so serious for?” well, I woke up on the wrong side of bed, and it’s kinda hard to hide how I feel thru my face 🙂 . LOL. I will also like to blame it on the weather.
At the end, all you got to do is S.M.I.L.E. and your day will brighten up it self.

I’m Rosmery “Rosie” Guerra (the other twin :)). I am the photographer/makeup artist/stylist/writer of the three, I guess you can say. I enjoy wearing many different hats, but currently I am working at a Fitness Bootcamp, as a Front Desk Administrator 🙂
What can I tell you about my personal style? Well if Alexander Wang + Yves Saint Laurant + Rachel Zoe + Lorde + Rachel Bilson had a baby, it would of been me. I love anything black, tailored, menswear, feminine-ish with an edge.
One thing that my sisters and I share in common is our love for fashion and our fun size silhouette. That’s when Ozzy got the grand idea of creating a Fashion Brand for Petite Women, Gertrude + Sly, as for now we are starting of with this blog, and we’re inviting you to join us on this journey on starting up our brand.
We have so much great ideas, and we can’t wait to share it with you. So fasten your seatbelt, cause it’s going to be a long, bumpy ride. More like a roller-coaster ride, lol.
Don’t be afraid to be a weirdo, with love…
Time Capsule #OOTD
Hi everyone! I’m Didi (the oldest)
I’m a Fashion Merchandise and Marketing student, hopefully getting my degree by the end of this year. I work for a Pattern maker / Designer where I am learning the tricks of the trade.
I can’t define my style as classic, edgy or modern because I dress according to my mood when I’m getting dressed. There is no method to my madness, I just keep trying on and combining different looks until something feels right. I am very much a girly girl, I enjoy clothing, make up and SHOESSSS!!!
At Gertrude + Sly we are excited to take you in this journey with us. We hope that with this blog you will have more of an understanding of our brand and what it represents.
Here are some of my looks from the past…
Hi readers! My name is Osmery “Ozzy” Guerra and I am one of the creators of “Gertrude + Sly”. I am the designer out of my sisters, and you can say I was the crazy one who thought of having a line that caters to petite women (being short is a bit of a struggle). I currently do production and product development for the fashion industry, giving me insight on what could be the next trend.
I am also the tomboy from my two sisters, but I like to look good in my extra large top (I make sure it looks right and not swallowing me). I guess you can say I’m a bit grundgy/emo-ish/artsy? Not the best describing my style, but take a peek at the teaser below and let me know what you think! =)
Peace + Love,
IT’S OUR UNOFFICIAL BLOG LAUNCH (WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!)
This blog is dedicated to our distinctive styles, as well as our journey on creating and launching our brand “Gertrude + Sly” (hint the name of the blog). Our posts will contain OOTD (Outfit of the Day) and how we wear 1 item 3 different ways, all according to our petite figure
and style. Come join us in this crazy ride while we turn our dreams into reality.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Gertrude + Sly is a contemporary line for petite women. We are giving the feminine
modern woman a cool vibe yet keeping up with today’s fashion trend. The line was founded buy 3 petite sisters that love + live fashion and art. The name Gertrude + Sly was inspired by the name of our parents Gertrudis and Silvestre.
You are wondering, why a clothing line dedicated to petite women?
Well, it is our personal experience that has become a hassle on finding age appropriate and stylish petite clothing, and we mean that in every sense of the word. We spend hours in stores, just trying to find the right jacket with the right arm length or pants that aren’t 3 to 4 inches too long. We feel this struggle is not something that only affect us, but an entire clique of petite women out there. Gertrude + Sly wants to fill that gap, giving petite women more fashionable options and less hassle in their search for the right fit.
Ozzy, Didi and Rosie
