Krewella is a woman-fronted, Pakistani-American musical duo based out of LA with an ear for electrifying dance music and an eye for eclectic, sustainable fashion. On and off the stage, the sisters, Jahan and Yasmine, express their creativity through their unique style. Over the past three years, they’ve made various lifestyle changes in order to live more sustainably – hang-drying clothing, for example, switching to LED lights and, of course, shopping secondhand at Buffalo Exchange!
An Open Mind is the Best Accessory
Jahan and Yasmine are passionate about keeping an open mind when it comes to alternative ways of self-expression. The sisters believe the key to personal style is unleashing your creativity and going with the colors, patterns and styles you are authentically drawn to.
Vintage Finds & Variety
Whether the girls are performing at a music festival or just heading out on the town, you can expect to see them rocking their ever-evolving, futuristic-meets-vintage style. If you were to take a peek into their wardrobe, you could find everything from vintage tees and traditional tunics with ornate patterns and embroidery to baggy athletic pants and studded belts. The sisters love discovering hidden treasures at Buffalo Exchange!
Rule #1: There Are No Rules!
A few years ago, Jahan and Yasmine began infusing vocals and percussion inspired by the sounds of Pakistan into their music. The resulting sounds – both playful and experimental – have in turn influenced their fashion choices.
Krewella released two new singles in 2019, Ghost and Mana, which you can find on Spotify and Youtube. Be sure to keep up with these artistic gals on Instagram and Twitter for out-of-this-world music and fashion inspo. Then, if you’re feeling inspired by their catchy tunes and unique aesthetic, head to your local Buffalo Exchange to shop for colors and patterns that speak to YOU!
If you’ve been to Buffalo Exchange, you may have seen Tokens for Bags® boxes near the checkout counter and wondered how they work. At Buffalo, it’s important to us to have a positive impact on the communities we’re apart of and on the environment. So, instead of giving out single-use plastic bags, we give shoppers 5 cent tokens to donate to their choice of three local charities. Since 1994, we’ve raised over $778,000 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations across the United States. We’ve also kept over 15.5 million plastic bags out of the environment! Read ahead to find out more about some of the non-profits you can support right now just by shopping at your local Buffalo Exchange.
Providing Love and Care to Senior Dogs at Frosted Faces
You can donate a charity token to Frosted Faces any time you shop at our San Diego, Pacific Beach location. Frosted Faces advocates and delivers quality veterinary care for senior animals whose lives are in jeopardy. By the looks on their adorable faces, you can see how much these love bugs appreciate all of the help and affection they receive from this awesome non-profit!
Fostering Creativity & Sustainability with Turnip Green
Love helping the environment? Drop a charity token in Turnip Green’s box any time you shop at our Nashville, Tennessee location. Turnip Green fosters creativity and sustainability through community education and reuse, diverting usable material from landfills. In particular, they collect paper and plastic products to use in artist workshops and after-school programs for children throughout the greater Nashville area. We love what Turnip Green does to help reduce waste and keep our planet green!
Keeping Active and Promoting Wellness through Chicago Run

They promote the health and wellness of Chicago children through innovative, engaging and sustainable youth running programs. Their goal is to improve and enhance the physical fitness and social/emotional well-being of all participants, ages pre-K through high school. Chicago Run serves 18,000 children and youth from 36 diverse neighborhoods throughout the area!
