Why do you like shopping at Buffalo Exchange?

I love resale shopping because you never know what you will find – a lot of unique items that aren’t in stores anymore or, if they are in stores, the price doesn’t break the bank.

Any style advice for others?

BE YOURSELF, wear what you like, be creative. Don’t take fashion too seriously – have fun with it!
