NOLITA—Designer Julia Leach's label Chance has a distinctly nautical feel, so it makes sense that she'd host a pop-up store on the brink of beach season. The shop runs through the end of June at 211 Elizabeth Street, and it carries "everything you need for a relaxing summer," writes Habitually Chic, "including soft striped tees, espadrilles, snacks, and even a bag in which to pack it all."

UPPER EAST SIDE—So many people have turned out to see the Met's Alexander McQueen exhibit that museum organizers have decided to extend the show through August 7th. Not only have they tacked on an extra week, but they're also instituting "Met Mondays with McQueen," a program that gives visitors access to the exhibit between 9:30am and 2:30pm on Mondays, when the Met is traditionally closed.
