We sat down with longtime Buffalo Exchange shopper and journalist Christian Portilla to talk about her personal style and her life in South Florida. She writes freelance for the Miami Herald and Miami New Times and runs her own website, RoamFreeWrites.com. Find out why she loves shopping resale and her favorite spots to visit in Hollywood, Florida!

What do you love about Florida – and Hollywood in particular?

The Hispanic community has played an essential role in my development as a human and a professional. Miami is unique: you can’t get a Cuban coffee – or “colada”, as we call it – for 75 cents anywhere else and we have the best “pastelitos” and “croquetas” in the world. In Hollywood, local shops and small businesses are really starting to take to the area and build community. I’m excited to see how it continues to grow. Hollywood also has an amazing beach that’s my go to spot to catch some waves.

Do you have any other favorite spots to visit in the Hollywood area?

Besides Buffalo Exchange and the beach, Hollywood is home to the Yellow Green Farmers Market. Many of us Miamians drive up to visit. It’s only open Saturday and Sunday, but they have incredible finds and lots of vegan options for people like me who eat a plant-based diet.
