Brooklyn boutique Bird carries beautiful clothes, but they can be pricey. J.Crew's hip sister brand Madewell carries affordable clothes, but you can't get them in Brooklyn. So it makes perfect sense that the two would team up. Starting soon, Bird's Williamsburg location will stock Madewell's line, making it the very first retailer to carry the brand outside Madewell's own stores. If this news makes you feel like celebrating, you're in luck: Bird is hosting a party next Thursday, March 10 from 7pm to 9pm, and everyone's invited. LCD Soundsystem's Nancy Whang will host, Justine D will DJ, and Radish and Brooklyn Brewery will provide refreshments. [Racked Inbox]
