The perfect pair of jeans? You've got that covered. Several pairs, in fact. But occasionally, especially at the change of seasons, a quick scan of your closet reminds you that you've got nothing to wear with them. Worse yet, your budget for a wardrobe update is minimal, so those $80-a-shirt places are out. (Cough, cough; Sorry, Anthropologie.) Amen and hallelujah, Bumble Bee will save the day. This fantastic little Westside boutique carries hordes of trendy and well-made tops, nearly all of which will leave you with sticker shock. But the good kind! (Really? This sassy little number is only $25?) It's a great place to replenish your top stock without breaking the bank. You may even have the means to pick up a dress or two, or a new necklace, or a handbag, or ... come to think of it, maybe this is why your budget is always so tight. 2801 Main St., Santa Monica. (310) 314-2175 (no website).
