Melrose Place - Hollywood Style without Drama

Review by: April
As the fashion conscious wife of a play it safe style man, I often watch American Idol while wistfully imagining my husband pulling off the risk taking looks of the contestants...not so much Adam, more Danny mixed with Matt. Nice combo right? Well, my first trip into Melrose Place in Laguna and this fantasy became reality. If you have ever shopped with a man, you know if it is all there and laid out for him, anything is possible. Melrose Place knows this. Their selection is cutting edge, wearable, and well within budget. My most recent trip in was highlighted by personal shopping attention from the very charismatic owner. Obviously, this man knows his customer, and enjoys playing matchmaker with the right line for the right man.

The store itself is most certainly designed to be shopped by a man. The vibe is high energy, the salesgirls are attractive and attentive, and there is organization by price point...as well as being a one stop shop. The size range is great, there are shirts and jeans from basic to bold, and no doubt all who shop here feel just a bit more "Hollywood" when they leave.

Melrose Place carries many mid-range brands ($75-$200) from 7 Diamonds, Roar, and Monarchy to Rock Revival and True Religion. (I call these mid-range, as they own The Vault store for men around the corner with a price point of $200 and up.) They also have a large rack of trendy men's button downs for $39 bucks! Just be aware, one very stylish ensemble tends to make a man want more...
