GREENWICH VILLAGE—La Petite Coquette is asking for donations of gently- or never-used bras. Why? Because on Thursday, the Feel Your Boobies Foundation is holding a flash mob in Union Square from 12pm—2pm in support of breast cancer awareness, and they'll be bringing with them tons of bras to create "the longest bra chain ever." Stop by La Petite Coquette's store at 51 University Place to donate. After the event, all of the bras will be given to charity. [RackedWire]
NOLITA—Tomorrow night at 6pm, Bowery boutique Dagny & Barstow will host an exclusive in-store presentation of Emilie Ghilaga and Timo Weiland's spring 2012 collections. Stop by to meet the designers, have a few snacks and a drink or two, and jam out to the music provided by Timo & Alan. [RackedWire]
