This weekend may be all about bunnies and brunches, but we're hunting for more than just hand-painted eggs. Buttons & Bows, a chic new vintage boutique, has opened up Downtown, and last night we did some serious browsing on your behalf. You’ll die once you peep all of the luxe threads with not-so-back-breaking price tags, and also when you find out who's running the show (we did!).
Owned by gal pals Karen Marley (daughter of reggae legend Bob), and Monique D. Delacroix, Buttons & Bows makes spring shopping a breeze for bargain-lovers on the lookout vintage designer finds from Chloe, Yves Saint Laurent, and Chanel as well has fresh, new pieces from Alexander Wang, Rebecca Minkoff, and J Brand.
Have some in-season threads you want to oust from the ol' closet? Well, you’re in luck, because these ladies will happily take them off your hands! Just make sure those pieces aren’t your run-of-the-mill tanks and frocks because Buttons & Bows is all about buying high-quality stunners to re-sell on the cheaps — like that vintage YSL embroidered wedge we found for less than $200! Crazy, right?
Buttons & Bows, 111 West 7th Street #R11 (Near Main Street); 213-622-0648.
