Best Dress Store for Teens

Current Boutique

Yellow walls, black-and-white-striped dressing room curtains and a pop sound track summon a young crowd to the resale shop Current Boutique. This branch of the local chainlet carries inexpensive new frocks (think $87 for a pink metallic cocktail style) and way-less-than-retail designer consignment pieces ($85 for a red BCBG minidress that originally cost $200-plus). Party-ready jewelry (both new and gently used), bags (a silvery Kooba clutch runs $60) and shoes also shine, making it a good one-stop shop before, say, a homecoming dance.
