Iran Oritz studied fashion merchandising and always dreamt of having her own boutique and it finally became a reality...on wheels.

Ortiz and her business partner Mariana Rosario Torres found the truck on craigslist earlier this year and turned it radiant orchid .the pantone fashion color of 2014.

Since April they've been canvassing the city, parking in different neighborhoods on different days. and racking up sales in the process.

So far they've had success all over Manhattan and in Brooklyn but up next, they plan to hit the Bronx.

The girls handpick all of the items themselves and almost all are made by LA or New York based designers.

Prices range from $15 for a bracelet to upwards of $200 for sunglasses.

They do have a fitting room on board so you can try before you buy.
