Santa Monica buyer Alexis Brooks has been with Buffalo Exchange since September. We chatted with her about style, fashion inspiration, and her fave pieces right now!

Where do you get your fashion inspiration from?
Fashion blogs, Instagram, and, of course, my customers and coworkers! My favorite Instagram accounts right now are @FeralCreature and @ImAlyssaLau.

What are your hobbies outside of Buffalo?
I enjoy photography and working on my personal fashion blog! I’ve been blogging for three years about my daily life, outfits, and sometimes food!

What are some of your favorite pieces in your wardrobe right now?
I’m huge into statement jackets! I waited for a long time for a UNIF “Whatever” jacket, and paid way too much, but it was worth it. I also got my amazing “Korea” souvenir jacket from Buffalo. My favorite boots are black leather harness Jeffery Campbells that I got from Nasty Gal. They aren’t practical for everyday wearing, but are awesome for special occasions. As you can tell, black is definitely my favorite color. If I had to describe my style, it is definitely edgy with a hint of fun.

If there’s a piece of clothing you can’t live without, what is it?
I can’t live without my staple Zara high-waisted skinny jeans! They’re so comfy and just a great piece that can go with anything!
