LOWER EAST SIDE—Next week, a boutique called ODD will open at 164 Ludlow Street. Not familiar? Let their description on Pintrest enlighten you: "One-stop-shopping for underground street style at a range of price points. We don't believe in men. We don't believe in women. We believe in individuality." As of now, Tilda Swinton is the only person in their "People We Admire" board, so who knows—maybe she'll be at the opening party next Tuesday. [The Lo-Down]
UPPER EAST SIDE—And in other, very different news, Worldly Things on the Upper East Side is closing its doors after thirty years. As Madison Avenue Spy puts it, most of the store's clientele "carries an AARP card," but that doesn't mean there aren't some quality, handmade wares the rest of us can enjoy, too. Currently, they're hosting an "End of an Era" sale, with discounts up to 70% off. [Madison Avenue Spy]
