Get glam on a budget at Allston hidden gem

Blogger Julianna Brunini is a ONEin3er currently studying Earth Science at Harvard University.  She grew up on the East Coast and enjoys exploring everything its cities have to offer.

While visiting family in San Diego last month, I befriended an impeccably dressed photographer.  After judging from the looks of her outfits that she must spend tons of time and money on her wardrobe, I was shocked to hear that she gets the majority of her clothes at vintage boutiques and consignment shops.  Yes, she wears designer brands and trendy styles; but no, she never pays more than twenty dollars a piece.

Those of us looking to emulate her smart need look no farther than Buffalo Exchange in Allston.


Why: Because you don’t want to pay department store prices for a dress you’re only going to wear to one party; because you’re worried about the plight of the planet given America’s unsustainable culture of consumption; because you can’t fit all your clothes into the four boxes you’re allotted for your dorm’s summer storage; because you like to people-watch.

Where: Just a block away from the Commonwealth Ave. T-stop or the 66 bus’ Commonwealth/Harvard Ave stop: 180 Harvard Ave. Boston, MA 02134
