At Buffalo Exchange, we’re all about personal style. Each of us has our own unique fashion journey, so we talked to Amy Donegan, an Administrative Assistant who has worked at Buffalo Exchange Headquarters for 7 years. She tells us how her style has evolved over the years!
How would you describe your personal style?
Up until a little while ago, I was unaware that I had my own personal style. Being the youngest girl growing up, I received a lot of hand-me-downs. I didn’t mind because my sisters had the coolest style and still do. Now, I would say my personal style is very eclectic. I pick my outfits depending on my mood that day. Some of my favorite looks are western (love my cowboy boots!), boho or just classic black and white. I always strive to express an understated elegance in whatever I wear.
What spurred your style evolution?
In 2015, I lost a significant amount of weight and really tried to explore and embrace different pieces that I never would have thought of wearing before. It’s wonderful working for a company that encourages you to express your individuality and personal style. While my sizes were changing, Buffalo was a great place to trade my clothes in for a fresh wardrobe! Plus, there’s such a wide variety of brands and styles that I really had the chance to figure out my own unique personal style.
What is different about your personal style now?
My clothes are much more vibrant! Before, I did wear color, but I more often gravitated towards black and grey. I still wear those colors, but now I pair them with bright patterns. I also have lots of fun with accessories. A hat, scarf or jewelry can add flair to any outfit.
