UPPER EAST SIDE—After three months selling her glasses at Henri Bendel, Cindy Hussey of Velvet Eyewear was so excited about the response that she decided to move in. Through Monday, October 3, Hussey and her team will be running a pop-up on Bendel's first floor. Look for optical frames as well as sunglasses like the Jami, above, which costs $159 and also comes in trippy yellow crystal. [Racked Inbox]
UPPER WEST SIDE AND UPPER EAST SIDE—Through October 19, Athleta has all sorts of extra perks for Foursquare users. Check in from either location (1517 3rd Avenue or 216 Columbus Avenue) and you'll get tips from local fitness experts. Become mayor of either location, and you'll get free entry to Dasha Libin’s Kettlebell Kickboxing class at Anderson’s Martial Arts Academy. Plus, of course, the more you check in to Athleta on Foursquare, the easier it is to convince your friends that you're some sort of gym-loving superwoman. [Racked Inbox]
