West 3rd Street: UK-based lingerie company Romp is set to open its West 3rd Street boutique April 22 per the above flyer sent to Racked LA. Joining Envi, also opening on West 3rd Street, and just-opened Recess nail salon on Beverly Boulevard, the boutique is billing itself as an eco-conscious boutique. The purveyor of "certified organic couture" will be "a boudoir haven for femmes fatales who travel with lingerie, luggage, accessories, coat and cocktail [dress] offerings and apothecary," according to Blackburn and Sweetzer back in November. Eco's all well and good, but the underthings better be pretty, frilly and lovely, else who cares. We'll see what the 22nd brings.
