Risque lingerie store on Melrose Avenue angers some neighbors

GOING TOO FAR ... EVEN FOR MELROSE? Some residents who live along Melrose Avenue are upset by what they consider an over-the-top sign for a lingerie store. The name? We can't type it here, but it does start with an "F." And it's displayed in big letters on the store's facade. Residents have been concerned for some time, noting the store is not far from Fairfax High School and Melrose Avenue Elementary School. Mondette has the back story and the photos.
