Buffalo Exchange Cleaning out your closet

New Year, New Wardrobe: Cleaning Out Your Closet

By Buffalo Exchange Los Angeles (Santa Monica)

You have to leave for work in 10 minutes and you can’t find anything to wear because everything cute is buried under a mountain of clothing. Sound familiar? If so, kick off 2017 with a new and improved winter wardrobe. Put on some groovy music and comfy clothes, then start cleaning out your closet! We make it easy with these 7 tips.

1. A Rule of Thumb: If you can’t think of at least three outfits to wear an item with, it’s time to move it out of the closet! Ain’t nobody got time for that!

2. Tried and True: Do you own essential sweaters and jackets that have stood the test of time? Keep them! Organize your closet so that the winter items you reach for time and time again are easily accessible.

Buffalo Exchange Fullerton Customer Profile of Pinup Style Stars

Customers of Buffalo Exchange: Pinup Style Stars

By Buffalo Exchange Fullerton

Meet Fullerton’s famous twins, Jen and Christine! These pinup style stars are taking Orange County by storm with their creative mix of vintage and contemporary fashions. This fall, they were both featured by Pinup Girl Clothing and Christine’s artwork was used by Vance Clothing.

We truly admire these twins for their drive to be themselves and work together to achieve their fashion dreams! Even though these ladies are similar in looks, their hair and style sets them apart. Christine likes to keep her hair long and pin-curled, while Jen opts for a short pixie cut. They often stop by Buffalo Exchange Fullerton to shop and show off their latest outfits. Recently, we took the opportunity to find out more about their pinup style inspiration.

Buffalo Exchange How to Sell Your Clothes

How to Sell Your Clothes

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Whether your closet is overflowing (literally) or you’re just looking to make a little extra cash, you may find yourself wondering how to sell your clothes. It all starts with cleaning out your closet. Find out the top tips for reorganizing your closet and reselling your clothes at Buffalo Exchange.

1) Clean out early, clean out often

Capsule wardrobe specialists and minimal lifestyle gurus recommend cleaning out every three months – once per every season change. If you’re overwhelmed just thinking about it, try every six months. When you clean out, sort into three categories: out-of-season items to be stored away in plastic tubs, worn-out items to be donated and items to sell.

Remember that most clothing resale stores start buying for the upcoming season a few months in advance. At Buffalo Exchange, for example, we start taking Fall inventory in July. We also buy current, high quality items in excellent condition out of season.  Moving to Hawaii (you lucky duck!) and wondering what to do with the brand new Patagonia jacket you’ll never wear? Bring it in!

Meet Our Team: Mykull London aka Michael Borum

By Buffalo Exchange Los Angeles (Hollywood)

Buffalo Exchange Hollywood buyer expert Mykull takes us through his closet and how his personal style has grown.

My personal aesthetic, I would describe, is a trendy culture clash. It’s a mix of indigenous basics and uniquely crafted leather goods. Many of my leather goods are a great juxtaposition to the simple and fluid clothing I wear. If it isn’t leather, I don’t want it!
