We posted earlier this week about Beckley Boutique opening on Melrose across from the PDC, and now we find out a little bit more about owner Melissa Richardson. From the Los Angeles Times: "Beckley Boutique, a passion project of Hollywood restaurateur Melissa Richardson, has set up shop down the street from Balenciaga and Henry Beguelin. Richardson moved to L.A. in 2003 to open Social Hollywood. The Las Vegas native (her father is the former vice president of Mandalay Resort Group) searched for a store in L.A. that specializes in under-the-radar women's wear. Finding none she liked, she took matters into her own hands." So, there are some serious Vegas dollars behind this retailer. [LAT]
