What’s your New Year’s resolution?
They’re easy to make, but hard to keep; it’s the time of year to make up your list of New Year’s resolutions. Here at the Downtown Portland Buffalo Exchange, we asked customers and staff what they wanted to accomplish in life and their wardrobe during 2013. Here’s what a few folks had to say!
Olivia Mick, Portland Customer
- New Year’s Resolution: “Start swimming for 30 minutes to an hour, three times a week.”
- Fashion Resolution: “Focus on basics, outfits I can mix and match to no end!”
By Karen Madrigal, Buffalo Exchange San Antonio
Think glitz and glamour with an edgy spin to it! New Year’s is fast approaching so here at Buffalo Exchange San Antonio, we are stocking up on all that sparkles and shines. Each winter, regardless of how trends and styles may change . . . our customers are always on the lookout for two things: sequins and studding that glistens! Here in Texas, our winters are pretty mild so strutting in shorts & hosiery is by no means a rarity!
During the winter season Georgetown manager Kara Perry loves to mix colors and prints in her wardrobe. “I choose colors that complement each other and designs that coordinate, not clash.” During summer months she tones down her print and color mixing due to her wonderful array of tattoos. “Too many colors and prints plus my tattoos overwhelm the eye! I think my tattoos are a fashion statement in their own right.”
Kara has been with Buffalo for 7 years. Originally working at our Long Beach store, then moving over to our Philly location and now the store manager of our newest Georgetown location. She finds inspiration from the city and the people of Georgetown, “The people are inspiring and motivating. The history of the city and its buildings are breathtaking. “
It’s the day after Christmas and your stomach is still full and your head is beginning to pound. You slowly remember all that turkey, ham or roast along with the bottle after bottle of wine, beer and whatever else was your drink of choice. Before you reach for those Tums and Aspirin we have we have some drinks and tips to help your hangover.
By Paloma B. Schmidt
Everyone knows that the second you wake up after a night of drinking, you’re parched. So you reach for a bottle of water, but a glass of juice or Gatorade will help to recharge your electrolytes faster. Even some milk will coat the stomach and help ease the pain. For those who are a little more adventurous but want to try something new instead of the tried-and-true Bloody Mary or Mimosa. I have your answers, three of some of the best hang over cures tested by yours truly; Angostura Highball, Eye Opener, and the Ich Bin. For those who like to live dangerously, but without the liquid courage, I’ve also included a Virgin Mary recipe to add some spice to your morning tomato juice.
Happy Holidays from all of your friends at Buffalo Exchange!!!! (more…)
Since the world may end today, it’s time to admit our fashion faults. We all have those moments where we look back at old photos and make an “Oh dear…” face in astonishment at our stylish selves. We pat ourselves on the back with congratulations to the clothing we now own, only to have that “Oh dear… ” face later down the road at today’s outfit. So while we’re living in the moment, let pay homage to our past fashion apocalypse.
Buffalo Exchange Washington DC manager Kara, takes us into her past with her top fashion apocalypses
“The first was my vintage/goth phase in 1996- it was my homecoming dance and I wore a satin asian inspired print skirt and too much make up! The cardigan was thrifted- I was always a thriftier!”
