You claim your tribal jewelry came from the Plaza de Ponchos in Ecuador. Your woven sandals and bag? Last summer in Brazil.
The truth is, your frequent flyer miles point to Aventura Mall.
Practice what you preach with a trip to Flechada, a Miami-based online retailer that brings Latin American designers to the not-so-jet set.
Accessories (luxurious animal skin clutches, alpaca scarves), beach gear (true Brazilian-cut bikinis), and home goods (embroidered accent pillows, alpaca blankets) help you dress the part. Colorful, handmade mochilas (backpacks) come from the Wayuu Taya Foundation — a nonprofit that employs and empowers indigenous women.
Local brands such as Agua Bendita, Onda de Mar, Adriana Castro, and Mishky round out the site’s roster of swimwear, bags, and baubles. (After all, Miami is the capital of Latin America.)
And with your new souvenirs, how could anyone not Bolivia?
Available at flechada.com, $20-$2,000.
