DIY Embroidered Denim

By Emily S., Buffalo Exchange Eugene

When embroidery became popular in fashion again, I was so excited! The vintage vibe it adds to a pair of shorts, bell bottoms, or a denim jacket has some serious appeal. Unfortunately, it’s pretty easy to break the bank on this trend. So what do you do when you’re on a budget?

Two words: GET CRAFTY.

Adding a bit of flair to your favorite jeans is super fun, inexpensive, and easy. Pinterest is full of inspiration. Let me show you.

DIY Cacti

By Marcie Helms, Buffalo Exchange Atlanta

My name is Marcie Helms and I am a plant killer. For as long as I can remember I have had a really hard time keeping plants alive. It’s not from a lack of trying, though, you guys—it’s because I care TOO much. I end up drowning them in love and way to much water. Our office in Atlanta is adorable and I didn’t want to introduce fake plants into the mix unless they were amazing. After being inspired by faux-flora solutions on social media (thanks, Tumblr), I decided to make some cacti.

Off Topic: Deck The Walls

By Joe Carrel, Buffalo Exchange Tempe

There are few things sadder than something blank. From the blank canvas of a frustrated artist, the blank page of a frustrated writer, or the blank living room wall of a frustrated, well, you. As a person of obvious style (you are reading the Buffalo Exchange Fashion blog after all), you like your personality to shine through—not just in your clothes, but also in your surroundings. So, if you’re interested in venturing beyond the basic mirror or painting above the couch, then click that “continue reading” link, because you’ve come to the right place.

Having something large on the wall can make an impressive statement, but it can also overwhelm a smaller room and/or prove cumbersome when it comes time to move. Instead of opting for a smaller object that will get swallowed up by the wall around it, how about displaying an array of the same type of item.
