We love to shop—and chances are that if you’re reading this, you too have affection for the finer things in life.
Unfortunately, a busier-than-normal calendar and weekends can translate to us doing less and less of the shopping we love.

Enter Park Place’s recently launched “LookBook,” an online shopping platform that stylishly showcases looks from many of the district’s boutiques.
Here’s how it works: local stylist and wardrobe consultant Melanie Knopke combs the shops of Park Place in search of the best pieces—from workout wear at Title Nine and Fitness-Culture to ready-to-wear at Alysa Rene Boutique and EJ’s Boutique to accessories at TallulahBelle’s and Romanelli Sun Galleria to kids and men’s duds at Sweetpea & Company and Geno’s Clothier.
“These are truly specialty stores,” notes Knopke. “They carry a lot of one-of-a-kind pieces that you can’t get anywhere else.”
Next, she combines the individual pieces into a collection of wearable looks that reflect the season’s top trends (think “Bohemian Chic” and “Orchid: Color of the Year”).
“What you see modeled in a magazine is meant to be inspirational. We want to show trends that are wearable,” says Knopke.
From this browsable, always-open inventory, you can make an inquiry to purchase entire looks or individual pieces. Purchases are handled immediately by Park Place’s concierge staff and shipped to your address or held for pickup.
