If you love Breakfast at Tiffany’s and take fashion inspo from stars like Audrey Hepburn and Greta Garbo, then this classically chic look is perfect for you. To start, we opted for simple yet elegant footwear – pointy-toed block heels. Then, we added a vintage clutch and pearl-adorned gloves to really give it a 1950s feel.  For major glam factor? A faux fur jacket in navy blue, of course! Keep the understated elegance of this look by finishing it off with simple silver jewelry.Full Story

Cleaning Out Your Closet with Buffalo Exchange Nashville

By Buffalo Exchange Nashville

So you’ve watched The Minimalist and read Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up—now what? At Buffalo Exchange Nashville, spring cleaning fever is well underway, so we are here to give you some tips and tricks cleaning out your closet and selling it to yours truly.

Tip #1: Rotate regularly!

Fashion is always changing, so look through your clothing at least once every season. Avoid letting too much time pass between closet cleanouts or you may run out of time to sell the trend.

Tip #2: Spot check!

When cleaning out, look for pieces in great condition that you can resell. If they have spots, stains or unintentional holes, consider donating them to a local non-profit, throwing a Naked Lady party for your friends or repurposing them.
