BOERUM HILL—On Friday and Saturday, A Modern Take will host its first pop-up shop at Brooklyn's Detail Consignment. The company sells high-end vintage bags, and lucky for you, specializes in Chanel. This weekend, those will start at $800—yes, still quite expensive, but substantially cheaper than anything remotely in-season. For hours and how to be put on the guest list, head here. [RackedWire]
TIMES SQUARE—Here's what was happening outside the Teen Vogue offices this afternoon. A group of girls from SPARK Summit set up a faux runway as part of a protest against the magazine's Photoshop use. Buzzfeed/Shift writes that the mock fashion show was meant "to show Teen Vogue what embracing 'real' beauty could look like." One of them also let it slip that Victoria's Secret and New York Fashion Week could be the next "potential targets." You've been warned. [Buzzfeed/Shift]
