And while we're talking about new stores, let's examine Pico Boulevard's Y. Bynu, shall we? The vintage boutique—the name is a pun—opened in March with a fairly wide selection of previously-worn clothes. "If your stylish best friend and your grandmother were to share a closet, it would look like Y. Bynu," the store explains on their website. Occasional Racked contributor Keri Pina checked it out for LA.com and found a Yves Saint Laurent poncho and a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress for under $100 each, meaning that this is one fashionable grandma we're talking about here.
