Pretty Young Things with discerning taste and a flexible budget can't help but shop the well-maintained racks at Abejas Boutique on Kirby. The store's name means bumblebee in Spanish and it's always creating quite the buzz thanks to handmade gems from Ruby Pearl, effortlessly chic Gary Graham dresses and jeans by Genetic Denim, J Brands, Hudson and Current Elliot. The jewelry here is out of this world and there are lots of sweet antique-y pieces and slim little bangles for the cherubic look or huge turquoise cuffs for the Harley rider chick inside us all. Classic Ray-Ban shades, lots of white James Perse, and loads of stellar one-of-a-kind vintage pieces are all what makes this boutique great. Their twice annual sales draw enormous crowds eager to pick up killer pieces for much, much less so make sure and subscribe to the store e-mail list.
The third Sunday of every month at Abejas Boutique is a whirlwind of activity from noon to 1 p.m., because everything in the store (except estate jewelry) is marked 50 percent off.
