Although the rain and gray days have finally rolled into Seattle, everyone is all smiles now that they can bust out their cute sweaters, scarves, boots, and layers! We went around the Ballard area hunting for fun fall fashion and we saw combinations of light layers with a few summer trends still sprinkled in. Boots are EVERYWHERE! While booties are still king we are seeing vintage inspired knee high styles, as well as combat boots. Skinny jeans with oversized tees and sweaters are an easy combo to look effortlessly chic and are a Seattle ladies go to outfit!

Meet Our Team: Moriah

Buffalo Exchange

Back at the beginning of 2012, I had recently resigned from my previous job and had no idea what I wanted to do. I remember reading one of the local free papers here in Houston and seeing an ad about Buffalo Exchange. What attracted me most and made me want to apply was that the ad mentioned fashion. At the time I didn’t know a lot about Buffalo Exchange. I knew it was a place one of my friends would go to buy her jeans, and I had accompanied her once. I also remembered it being in a part of town where I used to go see bands play in high school. Fashion, however, that I know well. I love knowing about textiles and construction, and have always loved clothes. I applied for an Associate Manager position and heard back very quickly from the Houston (Montrose) Store Manager at the time. My first interview I wore head to toe Anthropology: shoes, tights, necklace, dress, etc.

OFF TOPIC: The Great Pumpkin

By Joe Carrel, Buffalo Exchange Tempe

Think of the last thing you ate or drank. Now try to describe how it tasted. For many of us this is tricky business. Putting words to senses is not something we’re accustomed to, and if pushed for an answer we’ll generally say something, well, pretty general. We simply don’t have the vocabulary for it.

So, in an attempt to branch out a wee bit, I’ve chosen a subject to focus my senses on—namely, beer. Pumpkin beer to be seasonally specific. So read on as I gamely attempt to convert tastes into words, like a kid awkwardly stomping around in his dad’s shoes. But with beer.

NOLA Streetwear

By Buffalo Exchange New Orleans

Buffalo Exchange

The ever-growing fashion rewind has hit the universities, from chunky flatforms to the cutest slim fitting cropped tees! The 90s have exploded at New Orleans Loyola University, and we were there to see it unfold. The amount of mermaid babes stomping around in their jet black Doc Martens and JanSport backpacks brought us back to the times when MTV actually played music and Discman headphones were all the rage. The college kids here in New Orleans are holding onto the 90s with firm grips and they don’t seem to be letting go anytime soon.

Style File: Albuquerque

We are located in an area called Nob Hill—the heart of the city. Nob Hill is along the Historic Route 66. Most of the architecture, including neon signs that date from 1925 through the 1950s. We see a wide demographic of people, drawn in by local shops, great restaurants, and amazing people watching. Young and old alike, it seems as if everyone is mixing and matching a little bit of vintage into their style. Our store sees some of the best vintage around and our customers come here in search of it. Maybe it’s the old school charm of Nob Hill or all of the antique stores nearby, but vintage is very much alive.
