Vanessa Bruno, Vera Wang, Zero + Maria Cornejo?we're happy to see some pretty new life trickling back into the Melrose/Melrose Place area, but what if you can't afford to drop $1,450 on a black leather laser-cut romper? Thank goodness the new Marc by Marc Jacobs accessory store opened to fill the low-priced retail void. They're offering all the cheap, cheerful T-shirts, pens that look like a tube of lipstick, keychains, umbrella, costume jewelry, a few leather items and limited edition pieces that you used to have to stalk through the Marc by Marc Jacobs women's store to get. The Marc Jacobs empire could almost single-handedly revive the area: this, in addition to Marc Jacobs Men, Marc Jacobs Women, Marc by Marc Jacobs Men and Marc by Marc Jacobs Women is store #5.
