A reintroduction

Hi. I'm Erin. Or E.J. to my friends. Let's be friends.

I live in Dallas, and I work at Buffalo Exchange. It's nice work, if you can get it, and I've never been happier. I have a ridiculous level of freedom in my sartorial choices, limited only by my imagination and my funds. My style has evolved since I started working at Buffalo Exchange, not because I am any different, or like different things, but because I have access to so many things and the dress code to wear them. It's fun.

I like:
Black
Leather
Fur
Silk
Really tight pants
Sterling Silver
Turquoise
Mismatched earrings
Slightly subversive jewelry
Layers
Handbags
Reality Bites
and looking slightly ridiculous.

I wear gold eyeshadow and gold liner on the daily and this fur coat when the temp drops below 60 degrees...



"Work With What You've Got" is about looking and feeling good with the resources you have. Working within your budget, body, time and style. It's just a bit of fun, really, without pressure to spend more than I should, or be anything I'm not.

Does this mean you're "back" back? Yay! I'm a little jealous of your dress code. :) Freedom = creativity.

I LOVE your fur coat! I obsessed with fur right now! It make me feel so luxurious. I'd love to have a job with more style flexibility. I tend toward conservative jobs, but prefer a more wild style. Your evolution has been spectacular!
