We asked Buffalo Exchange Seattle manager to tell us a little bit about herself! Here’s what she had to say: I have a BA in Apparel Design, had the great opportunity to study fashion styling in London for a bit which I died for, and have now been a manager at the buff for a little over two years! And I don’t plan on going anywhere but up from here!
I once heard that getting dressed should be like your trying to tell a difficult story, layer upon layer till it is fully understood. That’s how I think when I get dressed all through the day. I probably change a million times, depending on what I feel like having on my body at that moment. I usually have a full wardrobe traveling in my car in case I feel the need to redress!
Something interesting about my style is I change my outfits multiple times in a day however my accessories are permanently attached. In regards to both my ink and silver. I adore covering my arms and fingers with abscure pieces that are one-of-kind most all of which have been buff finds. The two pieces on my wrists are my favorite, I don’t know what I would do if I ever lost them. One is a genuine goat hide cuffingly and the other a sterling silver rams head armlet. They are with me always.
My ink is hopefully only going to continue to spread, as of now my favorite is my most recent. I had the industrial cranes(like the ones in west seattle)turned into antique robots, the reasoning behind it was for a commitment to a friendship of mine(ironically with another buff ex manager lauren hendrie-whose is in the near future supposed to be getting a similar tat done) and for our/my time spent here in Seattle, my home away from the Mississippi.
