Meet Our Team: Juliet

Buffalo Exchange

Hi, I am Juliet, and I have been with Buffalo Exchange for six years! In August of 2008, I was hired as a Store Secretary Bookkeeper at our Albuquerque location, beginning my life as a Buffalo! I was then promoted to an Area Assistant for our New Mexico and Texas stores, an exciting opportunity, and a rewarding challenge. By October of 2010, I’d worked up the nerve to move to the Big Apple to put another notch in my Buffalo belt and pursue music, and was fortunate enough to transfer to the Chelsea location as a Store Secretary Bookkeeper, just as the store was preparing to open. That opened the next chapter in my life and my Buffalo career. It was so fun to be a part of the Chelsea location’s roll-out process and the opening team of employees, back when the store only had about eight staff members on board! Transferring from sunny Albuquerque to the heart of crazy Manhattan is an experience impossible to describe, but it was so exciting to help expand the way of the Buffalo, NY-style. In January of 2011, I was promoted back into the Area Assistant position at the New York office here in Brooklyn, where I’ve been ever since.

Off Topic

By Rebecca Block, Buffalo Exchange Tucson

Buffalo Exchange

Here in the Old Pueblo (aka Tucson) our summer is slowly changing to fall. We know this because we occasionally have a thoughtful draft of cool air brush against our faces and limbs as we venture outside in the evenings. We know this because our cars are no longer 130 degrees inside when we climb into them after an outing to the grocery store. We know this because we have naturally cut back (just a little bit) on how much water we are drinking every day.

Style File: Seattle (U-District)

By Buffalo Exchange Seattle (U-District)

Buffalo Exchange

It is finally summertime in Seattle, and it is hot and sunny with a 100% chance of great style. Sun deprived and ready to get (somewhat of) a tan, our customers are strutting their stuff down The Ave in funky and fashion-forward outfits. We’ve seen fun flirty floral prints, crazy cutout crop tops, and easy going earth tones—Seattle fashion has it all. Of course, it wouldn’t be Seattle if there wasn’t some layering involved. Our customers are pairing their summery outfits with lightweight vests and jackets to keep them warm when the sun goes down.

Health Goth

By Buffalo Exchange Philly

Buffalo Exchange

We’ve seen an exciting trend take hold that captures the convergence of sports-luxe, and the dark edgy fashion we are used to seeing here in Philly. “Health Goth” has been considered the transcendence of normcore, where punk meets sporty, monochrome meets masculine, and active wear is paired with 90s inspired goth. When you think health goth, think “joggers after dark,” one might think a customer sporting the health goth look was simply on their way to the gym, if the look didn’t demand such fiercely cohesive ensembles.

The Bourgeois Chiaroscuro

By Buffalo Exchange Costa Mesa

What is a Bourgeois Chiaroscuro? Bourgeois are people who love labels and chiaroscuro is an effect of contrasted light and shadow. Our styles in the OC consist of playing in the sun or staying posted in the shadows.

The trendy folks of Orange County take their own twist on the current 60s and 90s influenced comebacks. We see boho girls in their free-spirited 60s dresses and blouses, or guys in flannels and cardigans with basic tees. We also have the darker alt fashions of the 90s covered. Being beach city people, we can’t just pick up any flannel and wrap it around our waists—we want a classic J. Crew button-up version!
