Ah, South by Southwest: The films. The music. The white-knuckle terror of impending doom.
With over 70,000 attendees, many SXSW-goers are unable to stay near the downtown action, so festival buses are constantly shuttling people to and from their hotels across Austin. I am one of the shuttled. And after enduring some rides with puzzling routes and questionable traffic decisions, I surmised that the sudden demand for quality bus drivers had simply outpaced the supply.
This year our annual Earth Day $1 Sale will benefit The Fund for Animals. The fund has four animal care centers that provide veterinary treatment for thousands of animals year-round, while training volunteers and supporting their local communities.
Being in the heart of New Orleans it isn’t too much of a surprise to find a party outside of Buffalo Exchange NOLA’s door. Shortly after the roar of Mardi Gras comes to an end the Irish Channel Parade begins! A parade dedicated to celebrating the city’s large emigration from Ireland in the 1800s, the Irish Channel Parade involves: costumes, floats, music, green beer, kisses for flowers, and cabbages. Yeah, cabbages. As part of tradition, the Irish Channel floats throw into the crowd ingredients needed for an Irish stew. This year was the 66th annual Mass and parade celebration and it passed right in front of the store’s windows (No windows were harmed during the throwing of the cabbage). The enthusiasm and spirit definitely found its way into the store. Outside you could see a crowd of green dancing and raising their arms up in hopes of catching beads or any other prize flying their way. The parade is organized by the Irish Channel Corner Club and celebrated by locals and tourist alike, no matter their ancestry. Buffalo Exchange was a big hit for finding unique and festive pieces to finish off any St. Patrick’s day costume. In a city so rich in culture and full of festivities it’s hard to run out of things to celebrate, may the luck of the Irish be with you!

In a blue collar city like Philly we’re not surprised to see our customers embracing the denim-on-denim work-wear look or athletic-wear as an everyday-wear trend. We are noticing an update on popular silhouettes, and staple pieces being matched with some of the hot forecasted trends for spring 2015. Prevalent styles from last year such as longer hemlines, joggers, and the comfort sandal are still going strong. They’re also being paired with tried and true classics to create an up-to-date yet versatile look. The trend has evolved to feature cropped relaxed straight-leg denim and athletic-inspired pieces paired with an unexpected dress shoe. Throw on your classic leather motorcycle jacket or a lightweight parka for an effortlessly cool and casual vibe.
On a typical Sunday at the Berkeley Buffalo Exchange you can find mother and daughter duo Nicole and Zelda shopping the racks looking to score great vintage pieces and punky platform boots. They are hard to miss, because they have such innate yet effortless style, although totally different from each other, but equally enchanting. We here at the store have found ourselves excited to see what cool jumpsuit Nicole will be wearing and what great accessories Zelda will rock. I took a few minutes to chat with them about some of their style inspirations and what gets them excited about fashion and shopping resale.
Sade Persad has had an affinity for jewelry literally all her life. From the time her grandma gave her a pair of red gold bangles from India as a two week old babe, she has been addicted. Her collection is not only extensive, but also beautiful and timeless. Looking through her pieces was like spending an afternoon in the best jewelry store in town…if that store let you play dress up the whole time.
