As the first leaves fall, our moods change completely, so why wouldn’t our closets? Crop tops turn to sweaters and shorts are replaced by fleece tights. Although your first instinct might be to reach for the nearby high street retailer to cop fall essentials, it’s important to remember that your money could help small businesses, especially if you shop from Latin American stores. Thankfully, the internet can meet all your needs in a couple of clicks – free shipping included.
