This fall season has been a busy one for my Georgetown, DC store! We had fun Halloween dress up days and celebrated our one year anniversary by having an in-store birthday party. We passed out candy goodie bags, hit a piñata and sang karaoke!

What We Are Thankful For …

By Erin Galt, Buffalo Exchange Sherman Oaks

My first purchase with Buffalo Exchange feels like a lifetime ago and perhaps it was. I had just graduated and it was my last summer before returning to Canada for college. Before leaving, my friend needed company retrieving a 100 gallon fish tank and all the fish from San Francisco. That sounded like a great weekend to me. As we explored the bay, all the new friends we encountered swore by “The Buffalo,” as they called it. I had grown up thrift shopping but had never encountered anything like this. Within minutes I had a coat in my hands. Someone else’s garment they no longer wanted, but it was gold in my eyes. Little did I know, this jacket would not only keep me warm through a vicious winter and the horrors of realizing I picked the wrong school, but it would accompany me to my first interview at the Sherman Oaks location a year and half later. In January, I have spent the last five years growing within this company. The most amazing thing I have witnessed in this time is the perpetual energy this environment has for learning and sharing that knowledge. I met my boyfriend three years ago at the store and through him I am challenged to be something greater. Just this year, we started a band so I could not only overcome my fear of singing in front of others, but to make a commitment to progress. I look at this coat and I think of countries we have seen, the roads we have traveled and the paths we have yet to stumble upon. I am thankful for the smaller things that remind me of the bigger things.

 


What Are We Thankful For …

As the end of the year begins to approach, our introspective side becomes a bit more active than usual, culminating in Thanksgiving—a holiday in which we are supposed to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives and express our gratitude for all the good we have in it. This year has been one of great change for me; I am first and foremost thankful for the unrelenting sense of resilience I’ve had to muster in order to “roll with the punches,” so to speak. I don’t know where I’d be without it and I’m glad it’s here with me. In addition, I am thankful for my family and the friends who have supported and assisted me throughout the trials and tribulations of moving to Los Angeles. Last but not least, I’m thankful for having a job that allows me to juggle the demands of college while simultaneously allowing me to find fashionable clothes on a regular basis. Living the life of a broke college student has never looked so good!

Maybe we don’t always think about or experience gratitude on a profound level, but upon reflection and perhaps absence that sense can be kicked into overdrive. Just today I was awe-struck, with the majesty of nature. As we drove up to the High Sierra National Forest, the beauty that surrounded us was breathtaking. Anything short of a poet’s word would fail to capture the true majesty of our amazing state. Vivid, luscious green leaves radiate amongst deep maroon and golden amber. The rain turns into hail and then suddenly it’s snowing and the pines and redwoods have an impossibly fresh dusting of white. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the ability to experience this, for in this brief moment where I am reminded of how beautiful my home–California–is.

What We Are Thankful For …

Around this time of year, it’s so hard to choose what we’re most thankful for when I feel there are so many options. I am thankful for my ability to keep a positive attitude in almost any situation. I am thankful to live in such a vibrant and beautiful city with so many loving people around me. My family, though miles away at times, are unwaveringly there for me through thick and thin. My friends and coworkers are the very definition of individuals, each one bringing something different to the table. I am thankful to have someone to cuddle with every night. I am thankful for my education and my mentors, both in work and in school. I am thankful for my job at Buffalo Exchange for inspiring a passion for fashion I always kind of knew was there, and for letting me see and own pieces of clothing I never knew I could afford.

Despite our relative lack of seasons here, San Diegans still like to participate in fall fashion and this year, we’re all about texture layering.  Whether it’s a tapestry blazer on a velvet body-con, fringe on eyelet on fringe, velour maxis with leather jackets, or tufted sweaters and breezy harem pants—we love it all!  The key is to keep everything in a fairly muted color palette so the eye doesn’t get overwhelmed.  Top your look off with lots of accessories: metallic jewelry, neutral sunnies (or a textured bag, for the daring!) and you’re good to go!

Buffalo Exchange

Bellingham is a quintessential hot spot for dwellers of the Pacific Northwest. It’s a place for casual dress and outdoor enthusiasts. The lush, windy and chilly environment calls for thick knits and beanies. As we transition into fall, Bhammers make the switch from Birkenstocks to boots. More classic flannels are spotted with the occasional cutoff vest. Neutral colors begin to fade into people’s wardrobe with lots of reds and dark oranges to be seen. Wool socks and leather purses are a common sight as well as acid-wash high-waisted jeans and drooping vintage sweaters. It’s the time of the season and we’re excited to see what trends will sweep through Bham next.

An Era-inspired Fall

By Buffalo Exchange Brooklyn (Williamsburg)

We are taking our fashion cues from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s here in Williamsburg this fall! Bright colors, geometric prints and bold black and whites are hitting the streets and our customers love these looks.

For a laid back ‘70s feel, grab your floppy hat and oversized bag. Keep it current with a sheer geometric blouse and pop of floral.
