The sun is finally out in Manhattan and people are searching for an outdoor party! THE festival to kick off the summer in NYC is Governors Ball! Fun festival wear and statement accessories are the name of the game at this year’s annual music festival. Trendy New Yorkers are always looking to change things up from traditional looks, so this year, instead of the fringe and lace you’re seeing in the desert, we’re ready with bright colors, funky patterns, and bold shades. Here are some pics of what Buffalo Exchange employees fantasized they’d wear as they escape Manhattan and head to the 2015 Governors Ball.

When You Discover Your Super Power

By Joe Carrel, Buffalo Exchange Tempe

Buffalo Exchange

Even as a kid I knew I’d never go the Clark Kent route. Early on I determined that, if I ever discovered that I actually had a super power, I wouldn’t create some alter ego and try to hide it from the world. So the other day when my super power finally showed itself, I knew that I couldn’t just keep it under wraps. An announcement was in order.

10 Year Anniversary

By Denise L., Buffalo Exchange New Orleans

We’re celebrating our 10 year anniversary this Saturday, May 9 from 11am–7pm!

Buffalo Exchange

Close your eyes for a moment and flash back to May 2005. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had just announced their separation, Britney Spears was married to Kevin Federline, and the radio was blasting “Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani and “Soldier” by Destiny’s Child. Hot movies at the box office were Kung Fu Hustle, Sahara, and Sin City. On television Lost was ending its first season and Family Guy was beginning its broadcast. Carrie Underwood won the fourth season of American Idol and Tom Cruise was proclaiming his love for Katie Holmes on Opera’s couch. In fashion camisoles were popular embellished with sequins or layered under tees, flared low rise jeans, boho skirts, and knit gauchos were all over the streets. For men, Ed Hardy tees and super skinny jeans were all the rage.

Mother’s Day

This year I am fortunate enough to spend Mother’s Day not only with my mom, but also with my grandma, who is visiting from Iran. It has definitely been nice having her, and being that she lives 6,500 miles away, I don’t get to see her too often. It has been about 16 years since I have been there myself, so naturally I enjoy asking about ways in which the city she lives (Tehran) has changed over time. Iran is an Islamic Republic, and being so, women are required to cover themselves in public. But that doesn’t stop them from expressing themselves through fashion. With an endless array of colors hanging from the walls in their bazaars, to the beautiful Alborz Mountains, the city of Tehran creates the perfect backdrop for any fashion photoshoot.

This isn’t Coachella or SXSW, this is Sasquatch! Only a month away, Washington’s premiere outdoor music festival starts Friday, May 22 and goes until Monday, May 25. Sasquatch always takes place at the Gorge, which is about a three hour drive from Seattle. When Seattleites do festivals they go all the way. Don’t expect to see any hotels out here; it’s four days of camping rain or shine.
