So it’s officially the start of spring break for us NYU kids. Yippee! I myself am stopping by Miami this Wednesday (omgggg Miamiiiii). We will be posting regularly, but won’t be able to respond to comments/requests as quickly (don’t worry, we’re only gone for a couple days).
And how beautiful is Samantha??

Where are you from? NYC!
Where are you on your way to? Work! (Samantha works at Buffalo Exchange on N 9th & Driggs)
School, Year, Major: Gallatin, Senior, Metropolitan Anthropology
Why we spotted her: Initially it was her funky ballroom shoes, but once we kindly asked Samantha to reveal what was underneath her coat (it was a nice day, ok??) the drop crotch pants totally upped the outfit to a new level. I mean, how comfy-chic do they look?
Fun note: I absolutely love pro-environment businesses. Buffalo Exchange, being a second-hand store, helps out the environment by reducing textile waste.
As mentioned on the site, “The E.P.A. estimates 11.8 million tons of textiles were generated in 2006, or 5% of total U.S. municipal solid waste. Almost half of the 2.5 billion pounds of postconsumer textile waste prevented from entering the solid waste stream is recycled as secondhand clothing, according to the Council for Textile Recycling.” How cool is that?
