Buffalo Exchange Celebrates 40 years!

buff 5As an UnderEmployed Fashionista one might say I’m a savvy thrifting shopper. One of my favorite spots is Buffalo Exchange, particularly the one in Georgetown. So when the manager told me about their 40th anniversary party and sale I knew I HAD to be there! I mean, I try to get there on a weekly basis (I’m waiting for someone with size 6.5 feet to just purge their shoe closet), but this was going to be bigger and better.

Saturday morning came and an excited me and not-as-enthralled Z drove into Georgetown ready to see an airstream and some killer vintage pieces. While the bustling city proved to be too busy for a silver bus, the event carried on inside with face painting, amazing deals, free swag, and some seriously buzzing shoppers and associates. Due to it being their anniversary, they brought in some classic Arizona and vintage pieces from boots and satchels to shimmery sequined dresses and accessories. I found some amazing pieces (as always), but unfortunately no shoes (as always), but even the man got some great things.

I took home some limited edition reusable bags, tee shirts, stickers, pens, pins, and temporary tattoos, as well as a copy of their most recent lookbook (LOVE the boho southern inspirations for summer). Donations at the event went towards Yellowstone National Park, and with my BF’s love of all things buffalo, it’s safe to say he’s pleased with the logo’d swag. All this to celebrate 40 amazing years of fabulous thrifting? HELL YES! While most of the southern tour dates are finished, the tour itself isn’t quite done. Be sure to check here to see if the silver airstream party is coming to you soon! And follow the adventures on the interwebs with #Bufex74 !

New In: Presidents Day Shopping

I don’t know what it is, but it seems like every Presidents’ Day I go shopping and score some amazing deals from all the sales! This year was no exception; scored me some Prabal Gurung for Target (possibly my favorite Target collab ever), some indulgent magazines (I can’t wait to see where Joanna Coles brings Cosmopolitan!) and this killer high waisted leather skirt and Hogwarts tee from Savers! The sale at my fave thrift store was too good to be true; the tee was $1.50 and the skirt… TWO DOLLARS. Far too good a deal!

Did you do any sale shopping over the weekend!?20130220-122016.jpg

Classy Gal

One of my favorite things about myself is my versatility. Today, I flipped my hair, covered the shaved bit, threw on a more conservative summer dress and some sparkly jewelries, and called it a day. This alter ego is usually reserved for job interviews, important meetings, or court (oh, parking tickets), but today I just felt like being a little classier.

It’s funny how society can view and treat you differently based on your aesthetic sometimes…Scratch that, most of the time. If you’ve been following anything on the news lately, though, you may have seen the handsome mohawked man landing a robot on Mars, and that really got me thinking about how the times they are a-changing. So, for a good read if you’re curious or into the rebellious look but want to keep your job, please head on over to FemInspire and give my latest article a read!

Outlet Shopping

Spent the day yesterday at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets with my family, wandering around the fabulous stores oggling the cheap prices. Once upon a time I, as a teenager, worked in these outlets, but things have changed a bit since then, and so have my tastes and I; which I’m fully thankful for. I now pay attention to different stores than I did back then. For example, there’s a Saks outlet, Barney’s outlet, BCBG, Banana Republic, Guess, and newly added Bloomingdale’s! Compared to back then when all I cared for was Nine West, PacSun, Zumiez, and HotTopic. I was ecstatic when poking around I found an Alexander Wang sweater on sale for $129 in the Barney’s outlet. Ofcourse, that’s still above my budget, but it’s plausible with some thought out saving.
Anyway, the point of the day was to get out of the house, enjoy the sunshine and some fashion, and I definitely did!

President’s Day Sales Haul

Today was President’s Day! And in the land of the retail that, of course, means SALES.

My sister and I spent the day together, finding all the best deals in Providence. Our first stop was Savers thrift store, to see if they had the sheer maxi I had wanted the other day, and they did! Forhalf off!

Next up was the providence place mall, where I picked up some maroon shorts and a tee from PacSun, where everything was 50% off. The top is a yin and yang of skulls, with a cropped midriff and cut out shoulders, holy perfection!

We perused the mall some more, where I picked up some of Dior’s new nail color for spring, Waterlily, and an elongated ring from H&M!

Special thanks to my sister for all of the wonderful gifts ❤

JC+LF+Sushi

Last night I attended the launch of Jeffrey Campbell’s new bag line at a Fourth of July party at LF stores in SoHo.  I walked into free lemonade from girls wearing various pieces of American Flag apparel (totally IN right now, right?) and cupcakes, cake, and everything themed. I immediately found my fellow blogger friends amongst the plethora of associates mixed with the “too cool for school” teenage crowd.

After saying hello and getting accustomed to the situation I took a look around the store. to be honest, I was scared for my life. LF Stores is the epitome of force fed fashion, catering to the personality and personal taste-less followers of the Nylon bible. You’ve got your crop tops, American flag shorts, fringed “vintage” tees, and all-you-can-wear high waisted “vintage” Levi shorts. Oh, and did I mention the Jeffrey Campbell Lita’s?

Amongst the rubble of fashion vomit I managed to find the Sam Edelman heels I’ve been lusting after, as well as this gorgeous kimono.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, so I don’t completely hate the shop. I think, piece by piece, they are some amazing finds. But for the most part, I’d rather not be force fed my daily dose of Nylon Magazine’s poolings all at once.

Anyway, so after waiting through two bag giveaways (one of which was won by my dear friend Monroe!), 6 of us decided to go for sushi at Noodle Zen on St. Mark’s.

Since I’d already had sushi for lunch, I opted for a vegetable tempura udon, which was quite good, especially alongside my orange chu-hi beverage.

Now for what I wore:

Misfits tee from Hot Topic (DIY/cutout myself)

Forever 21 shorts

Aldo Wedges

Gifted R&Em bag (can be found here)

Peter Grimm hat

TopShop bracelets

And now I leave you with this photobooth strip of Nicole and I making funny faces! ❤
