Polka Dotted Maxi Dress at Buffalo Exchange
Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
Where: Buffalo Exchange in Tempe
Style It: Go for a beachy and glamorous, Old Hollywood look (think Gwen Stefani here) with a bold red lip and simple, classic accessories. Or wear it as an homage to '90s grunge -- better yet Elaine Benes -- by pairing it with heavy brown leather boots or loafers and a loose neutral-tone cardigan. Fashionable beware: the latter has the potential to skew Urban Outfitters catalog in a bad way. Keep the irony in check (and any desire to have blue hair), and all will be well.
