Go Ask Kara

By Kara (@GoAskKara), Buffalo Exchange Georgetown

Buffalo Exchange (1)I have been in the process of doing a total closet turn over! I see beautiful clothes all day, every day at my little Georgetown, DC Buffalo Exchange so I am CONSTANTLY trading old clothes for new ones. My plan was to start selling off all of my sweaters and NOT buy anymore. I did not stick to that plan. However, I have mixed in a lot of great pieces for Spring and Summer in all of my many Buffalo Exchange hauls!

Spring Layering in Ventura

Buffalo Exchange Ventura

Buffalo ExchangeThis small beach town is always blessed with a bit of sunshine and the weather rarely drops past 50 degrees.   In our town old is still new and casual/comfort comes first.  Blue jeans are a must and skinnies rule the scene.  Topping our denim with basic tees, frilly lace, and grunge rock tees are a few ways we play up our go-to pair of jeans.  For a bolder statement a pair of printed pants or flowy velvet pants can be dressed up with a chunky heel and some attitude.  Going into spring we will be looking forward to rising temperatures to broaden our choices and include all the great upcoming trends into our wardrobes.

Musings: Bugs and Blossoms in Tucson

By Rebecca Block, VP of Buffalo Exchange

Buffalo ExchangeWe have had such a cold winter this year in Tucson that I’ve begun to wonder when the orange blossoms will make their debut. It’s almost always smack in the middle of March when I first get a whiff of that intoxicating scent. Along with it come memories of my childhood, where my elementary school had them in droves in the courtyard.
