WEST VILLAGE—For those who developed a taste for evening shopping on Fashion's Night Out, Lucky Magazine has planned a boutique crawl taking place this Thursday, September 24. Wander up and down Bleecker Street between Bank and Grove for discounts of 10% to 30% off stores like Cynthia Rowley, Castor & Pollux, and Steven by Steve Madden, plus giveaways and other perks. (The king of Bleecker himself, Marc Jacobs, is offering a free perfume with a $250 purchase.) Head over here for more details. [Lucky]
SOHO—The inbox brings good news for narrow-hipped male readers. Writes a tipster: "The J.Crew men's store in Soho now carries a lot of their jeans and slim-fit chinos in 29 inch waists! Before you had to order them online. They are also carrying a lot of extra-small tops. The men's store in Tribeca will have a more limited selection of these sizes. Probably won't make it uptown yet—more for the downtown skinnies as of now. I bought a pair of khaki pants to support this move. Was able to try them on in the changing room with old-time nudie pics and New Order on the sound system, as it should be." [RackedWire]
