This past week, I brought a huge haul of clothing to Buffalo Exchange in a last-ditch effort to clean out my closet. One of the things I love about thrift stores is that they give you an opportunity to organize, sort and sell the clothes that you no longer wear and trade them in for new updates to your wardrobe. It's a win, win situation, and I often wind up heading home with pretty pieces that I can't wait to rock, as opposed to holding onto items that I know I'll probably never wear again. This Reformation dress is one such lucky find. Their dresses always fit me to a tee, so when I spotted this one on a rack at Buffalo Exchange I knew I had to bring it home. I love the slight flare of the hem and the checkered print is perfect for summer. The price tag was marked at $38, but since I sold so may clothes I essentially took it home for free. Now that's a deal worth writing about!

  11. I know so true, I use to do this a lot more when I lived in Seattle, but not as much since I moved back to NY. But a couple of years ago I was so surprised ( in a good way) when I stumbled on the Buffalo Exchange on 26th on my lunch break and was even more excited to find out there was a Cross Roads in Brooklyn. In fact I got a $400 pair of practically brand new pair of studded black knee high Cole Haan boots there for $60. So I am not surprised you scored such an awesome dress at such a great price.
