And as the title of my shop suggests, I also enjoy finding outerwear for the finca, hacienda, estancia, ranch or country estate - Mexican telenovela meets Masterpiece Theatre. However, I am at heart still a Jersey girl and so in my shop you will find a tightly edited collection of acid washed jeans, cropped jackets, geometric tops, and bold sportswear perfect for cruising down Bergenline Avenue to the sound of Freestyle.
