Part 4 MakeOver of the Year : Shopping Spree at Buffalo Exchange

The Total Shopping Spree amount was $500.00  I decided to divide the prize $250.00 each at Buffalo Exchange and Dillard’s.  I chose Buffalo Exchange because I knew we would find one of a kind treasures at a great price  and I was right!  I wanted Jodi to get the most out of her money and introduce her to one of my favorite stores.

Jodi met me at the Buffalo Exchange on Speedway and Campbell001The management which consisted of Jennifer and Rachel  greeted us openly and helped us with anything we needed.  Thanks to both of you and Amelia.  All of you were so helpful that day. 012

The Shopping Strategy was to pull clothes first and then try everything on.  We were specifically looking for Business Casual, along with Hippy Chic items that would carry over from day to fun night outfits.010

We found so many  great pieces!  Jodi as it was her first time in the store was absolutely amazed!  With my expertise of designer labels and knowledge of quality clothes, I always describe Buffalo as giving candy to a baby when I shop there for clients. Jodi was reluctant when I would hold something up and say “How about this” but she was willing to try and with that attitude beautiful surprises always go home with the client – things she would of never picked out ever!!!!!   Jodi was also blown away as I was educating her on what a great deal she was getting as I was finding designer labels that ran anywhere from $95.00 – $250 per item.

After shopping the racks we headed into the dressing room to try on.  This was a 2 hour process and so much fun.  We scored!
