Meet the Sustainably Stylish Sister Duo: Krewella

By Savy Kroop, Photography by Lauren Dunn

Krewella is a woman-fronted, Pakistani-American musical duo based out of LA with an ear for electrifying dance music and an eye for eclectic, sustainable fashion. On and off the stage, the sisters, Jahan and Yasmine, express their creativity through their unique style. Over the past three years, they’ve made various lifestyle changes in order to live more sustainably – hang-drying clothing, for example, switching to LED lights and, of course, shopping secondhand at Buffalo Exchange!

An Open Mind is the Best Accessory

Jahan and Yasmine are passionate about keeping an open mind when it comes to alternative ways of self-expression. The sisters believe the key to personal style is unleashing your creativity and going with the colors, patterns and styles you are authentically drawn to.

Vintage Finds & Variety

Whether the girls are performing at a music festival or just heading out on the town, you can expect to see them rocking their ever-evolving, futuristic-meets-vintage style. If you were to take a peek into their wardrobe, you could find everything from vintage tees and traditional tunics with ornate patterns and embroidery to baggy athletic pants and studded belts. The sisters love discovering hidden treasures at Buffalo Exchange!

Rule #1: There Are No Rules!
A few years ago, Jahan and Yasmine began infusing vocals and percussion inspired by the sounds of Pakistan into their music. The resulting sounds – both playful and experimental – have in turn influenced their fashion choices. 

Krewella released two new singles in 2019, Ghost and Mana, which you can find on Spotify and Youtube. Be sure to keep up with these artistic gals on Instagram and Twitter for out-of-this-world music and fashion inspo. Then, if you’re feeling inspired by their catchy tunes and unique aesthetic, head to your local Buffalo Exchange to shop for colors and patterns that speak to YOU!

I Let My Boyfriend Style Me Every Day For a Week

By Aarian Frye

It’s no secret that I have a whole lot of clothes – they live in two closets, dressers and, somehow, always in a pile on the floor. Don’t even get me started on my collection of bags, shoes and accessories! To help me sort through my overflowing wardrobe, I enlisted the help of my boyfriend, Dylan. He picked out my outfits for a week and, as a result, helped me realize that I needed to part with a few of my well-loved pieces and bring them in to Buffalo Exchange to sell!

Day One

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me White Dress

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me White Dress

What I wore: Free People dress with embroidered sleeves, vintage basket handbag, strappy    Topshop sandals, Universal Threads mules, Forever 21 earrings

Why he picked it: He knew it was my favorite dress and he also knew I never usually end up wearing the strappy sandals or vintage handbag (spoiler alert: both, while very cute, are also very impractical). 

How I felt: I love love LOVE this dress. What I didn’t love were these sandals. After brunch and an afternoon of thrifting, my feet were screaming for comfort. I had to go home and change into these mustard mules. The bag, too, proved to be difficult – it was too delicate for everyday use and, while I love vintage, I am more concerned with function over fashion (at least when it comes to handbags). These ones both went right into the bag for Buffalo Exchange!

Day Two

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Floral Zebra

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Cheetah Earring

What I wore: ASOS floral and zebra print blouse, BDG jeans, Dolce Vita sandals, cheetah print earrings, GAP tote 

Why he picked it: I rarely wear jeans and I’ve never worn this blouse. This probably won’t come as a shock, but I often shop for an idealistic future – “Maybe I’ll wear this if I’m at this place at this time and the moon is in this phase.” It’s not realistic and I’m left with an abundance of clothes I never wear – thank goodness I can trade them for store credit Buffalo Exchange! I’d been holding onto this blouse for a special occasion, but Dylan showed me that I don’t need a specific reason to wear an outfit. If I love something, then I should wear it – who knew it could be so simple?

How I felt: I have to admit – I was hesitant to walk into the world in this look. A floral AND zebra print blouse with distressed kickflares, cheetah-print earrings and banded sandals?! At the end of the day, though, this turned out to be one of my favorite looks

Day Three

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Floral Dress

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Cherry Earrings

What I wore: ASOS flower-striped dress, Universal Threads mules, vintage beaded bag, resin cherry earrings

Why he picked it: This was a hot day (here in Tucson, it stays warm a good chunk of the year), so Dylan paired this cotton dress with backless shoes and a minimal bag. A pragmatic choice that led to a super cute, put-together look!

How I felt: This was such a fun outfit and satisfied my craving for color coordination! It was just another day at the office, but the retro floral dress with the side tie reminded me of a sarong I’d wear on a tropical cruise. V refreshing! Also, I have to give Dylan props for the cherry earring selection. I wouldn’t have paired florals with fruit, but it works so well! 

Day Four

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Tomato Blouse

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Resin Earrings

What I wore: Urban Outfitters smock-top, Forever 21 light-wash denim skirt, resin circle earrings, ASOS tiger mules, GAP tote 

Why he picked it: Casual Tuesday, anyone? We were in a bit of a rush to get out the door this morning, but this outfit doesn’t show it. A denim skirt paired with a cotton blouse is simple and always stylish. For a bit of fun, Dylan decided to add these tiger print mules I could easily slip on and matching orange and black resin earrings. I was ready for the day in no-time!

How I felt: I love any and all smocking and the denim skirt is a staple of my closet (I have this same skirt in a medium-wash denim). However, my love for fun shoes proved to be incompatible with my achy feet! Although I didn’t have to change footwear mid-day, I think these shoes should go to someone who’ll wear them waaay more frequently, which means they’re going right into the Buffalo Exchange bag!

Day Five

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Striped Dress

What I wore: Striped apron dress (brand unknown), navy camisole (brand unknown), ASOS gold bamboo earrings, Dolce Vita Sandals, vintage handbag

Why he picked it: Taking some advice from the times I’ve styled him myself, Dylan wanted to try out a fully neutral look without going monochromatic.

How I felt: While it’s true that all neutrals go together, I wasn’t so sure about this one. For some reason, the beaded bag with bamboo handles and two-strap sandals didn’t quite feel right with the look. I’m definitely still going to hold onto this dress, but I usually reserve it for fall when I can layer it over a black turtleneck, tights and booties – picky, I know. I learned that maybe I should stash this piece away with my fall/winter items. Still, I commend Dylan’s concept of tonal dressing!

Day Six

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Zebra Shirt

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Lime Bag

What I wore: Forever 21 zebra-print button down, Target denim skirt, Converse high-tops, vintage woven handbag, Forever 21 marbled resin earrings

Why he picked it: Feeling inspired by the 80s revival, Dylan went for a graphic black and white look with a bold pattern. Then, he added the neon green bag for a pop of color. 

How I felt: This was fun! I have a ton of animal print in my closet, and this button-down is something I routinely pushed back because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to style it. Who would’ve known all I needed was my dependable denim skirt? This is a great outfit to take me from my 9-5 to happy hour!

Day Seven

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Blue Dress

Buffalo Exchange HQ, Boyfriend Styles Me Gold Bag

What I wore: Free People dress with embroidered sleeves (this time in blue!), Universal Threads Mules, retro belt, blue tassel earrings (brand unknown), vintage beaded handbag

Why he picked it: Another thing about me: when I love something, I buy it in every color I can. Knowing this, Dylan wanted to end the week with something familiar but really jazz it up with metallics, beads, tassels and rhinestones. 

How I felt: Great! In retrospect, I feel like I need to invest in a steamer, but wrinkles aside, this is a go-to look! While I was initially unsure of wearing so many sparkly accessories at once, everyone I interacted with today complimented me on how the whole thing came together, to which I gracefully replied, “Thank you, my boyfriend is my stylist.” 

All in all, I feel great about this week of outfits. Even though I was a little nervous at the start, it was such a treat to see what my boyfriend really thought about my clothes — not to mention how nice it was to not have to pick out my own outfit every morning! It also helped me realize which items I really don’t need to hold onto (wonderful as they may be!) Now, I’m taking my reusable tote filled with goodies to sell at Buffalo Exchange. If you’re feeling inspired to have your partner, friend or roommate sort through your closet and pick your looks for a week, I say go for it! You’ll probably end up with some great new outfit ideas and a bag full of items to clean out. Your local Buffalo Exchange buys the best of all seasons year round and your closet cleanout could be worth cash or trade to spend on a wardrobe refresh you’ll really love!

Sedona Band Photographed by Katherine Bonnie

Meet Sedona – One of Brooklyn’s Bands to Watch

By Katherine Bonnie & Aarian Frye, Photography by Katherine Bonnie

Meet Sedona: the electrifying dirty pop group based out of New York City. The band is comprised of five members: Tia on drums, Merilyn on keyboard, Claire on guitar, and Lily on bass with lead singer Sedona at the forefront. Even though the group has a wide array of personal styles, they’re all avid thrifters with an appreciation for vintage gems. It’s little surprise, then, that the group loves shopping at Buffalo! “I’ve shopped at Buffalo for as long as I’ve lived in New York, so four years now,” Claire says. “My entire outfit is from Buffalo Exchange!” Tia adds.

Sedona, band seated for portrait, photographed by Katherine Bonnie

Sedona did their first tour in March of 2019, driving 70 hours across the country in an old church bus to play SXSW and venues in New Orleans, Pennsylvania and their home base of NYC. “We played a bunch of shows. It was beyond fun to travel and perform with a group of inspiring ladies that I’m lucky enough to call my family!” says lead singer Sedona. They returned full of inspiration for new projects. All five members of the band light up when they talk about their plans for the group. “We set aside some time this summer to write together, which was a first for us, and we can’t wait to play more shows.”

Sedona’s next show is at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on Wednesday, August 14th. You can find their music on Spotify, Soundcloud and Youtube and keep up with the band on Instagram and Facebook. If you’re feeling inspired by this band’s catchy tunes and unique personal styling, head to your local Buffalo Exchange to shop some vintage finds of your own!


Get Ready For Fall with Buffalo Exchange

Fall is finally on its way! If your closet didn’t get the memo, Buffalo Exchange is ready to help you refresh your wardrobe with everything you need to prepare for the cooler weather! We have all of the fall essentials like denim, sweaters and jackets, flannels, scarves, and beanies. Don’t forget to keep your toes warm with a pair of new-to-you booties! No need to break the bank when shopping for the new season – remember that we’re currently buying for fall! The pieces you loved last fall could be worth cash or trade to spend on some new favorite looks. 


Meet NYC Creative Paris Warren

By Savy Kroop, Photography by Tracy Awino (@narnah)

We recently had the chance to chat with Paris Warren, a longtime Buffalo Exchange shopper and creative freelancer based in New York. In his professional life, he enjoys wearing a number of hats – from stylist to fashion director to magazine editor and more! This approach applies to his personal style as well – “I’m open to wearing anything,” he says. He describes his style as eclectic and loves shopping for unique pieces at Buffalo.

Be True to Who You Are

On a day-to-day basis, Paris takes inspiration from the people on the streets of New York and admires well-thought out looks with attention to detail. “It never gets old,” he says of NY street style. He believes in pushing the limits of personal style without sacrificing comfort. “Be true to who you are,” he advises, “and let that resonate with what you wear.”

The Paris Warren Essentials

For summer (especially in humid NYC), Paris’ ideal look consists of biker shorts and a graphic tee – basically something easy and breezy to throw on. He’s all about the layering, though, so he personally can’t wait for fall and winter to come back around. This season, he’ll be frequenting one of NY’s six Buffalo Exchange stores in search of faux fur jackets in a variety of fun colors.

One Person’s Closet Cleanout is Another’s Treasure

Paris loves wearing pieces from independent designers as well as secondhand finds from places like Buffalo. “A lot of people don’t know anything about Buffalo Exchange,” he says, “but they should take the opportunity. The staff is really nice and goes above and beyond. There’s also a lot of versatility that you don’t see elsewhere and high quality products. They don’t just buy anything – the selection is curated.” His favorite Buffalo find of all time? A vintage Christian Dior jacket that he scored at Buffalo Exchange Houston. “I don’t only look for high-end brands,” he says, “but it’s pretty amazing when you can find a deal like that.”

However you choose to express your personal style, take it from fashion enthusiast Paris Warren: shopping secondhand is the way to go! Grab your cleanout and head to your local Buffalo Exchange to trade it in and shop for some new-to-you finds – you might score the likes of a vintage designer jacket or even just the perfect pair of jeans.
