Back in the day, I did most of my shopping DTLA in the garment district. I remember walking up and down Los Angeles Street with my mom and sisters, always ending the day at Clifton’s cafeteria. This was before the “alley”, Staples Center, and LA Live. So when I read about Buttons & Bows a luxury resale consignment boutique owned by Monique Dillion Delacroix and Karen Marley (daughter of reggae legend Bob Marley) I figured it was time to revisit and see what was going on in my old stomping ground.
Buttons & Bows-carries an eclectic collection of designer pieces, fabulous jewelry, and shoes. My friend Denise was my compadre for the day. We started flipping through the dresses, when I found a cute flirty Dolce dress that unfortunately was not my size, I passed it to Denise and she graciously accepted and skipped to the dressing room. I then came across a sheer ombre blue and brown Betsey Johnson dress that got my attention.
Buttons & Bows has an amazing selection of jewelry, really interesting and unusual pieces.
I fell in love with this piece, Devon Leigh is carried in Neiman’s and I got this one for a fraction of what it would have been there. I can’t wait to wear it, the colors are so beautiful, it’s kind of hard to see in this photo, but trust me it is gorgeous.
Monique and Leah were so helpful, they gave us suggestions on where to eat and other boutiques in the area. Downtown will definitely be a regular stop, the price points are really good and since I am always trying to make room for the “new” Buttons & Bows will be an option for consignment as well.
