Are you trying to buy some Marc Jacobs or Chanel on the cheap? Are you sick of “consignment” that looks like pieces from Betty Draper's closet rather than pre-worn current fashion? If either or both of these things apply to you, look no further than Buttons and Bows. This resale shop in the heart of downtown offers a pleasantly manageable collection of modern yet used designer deals that are classic and timeless — practical additions to any fashionista's wardrobe. Whether it's innerwear or outerwear; heels, boots or flats; a light sundress or statement evening gown; rings, things or a fine array of bags and shades that you seek — this place will fill the gap in your closet, and then some. The boutique cuts out the chore of sifting through slop at Buffalo Exchange or Crossroads for the hidden high-fashion steals that everyone in the store hopes to snag. How does a Diane von Furstenberg blouse for $55 and a pair of Joe's Jeans for $58 sound? Your answer should be a resounding, “Flippin' awesome!” 548 S. Spring St., #112, dwntwn., 90013.
