Bittersweet Butterfly in Silver Lake is a glorious combination of fresh flowers and lingerie. Decidedly upscale with labels like Mimi Holliday and Princesse Tam Tam, it's easy to rack up a three-digit receipt with one bra and panty purchase. The shop always has a sale section out back, but it's currently making way for next season, which means there's more merch on discount than usual. We found bra and panty sets for $30 total, a bin of $5 panties, plus PJs for half off, and a nice assortment of hair accessories and jewelry for $10. In fact, the boutique carries really reasonably priced accessories—hair clips, cuff bracelets and earrings, rings, little clutches—which adds to the accessibility of the shop as a whole. [RackedWire]
