EVERYWHERE—According to a sign hanging in the window at Daffy's on Fifth Avenue, the discount department store doesn't have much time left. Stores were expected to begin closing in September, and this one only has ten days remaining. Currently, the markdown is up to 50% off. [RackedWire]

MIDTOWN WEST—Whether or not you'll be attending any shows this fashion week, you can stop by the Allure Lounge Colored by Maybelline New York at the Empire Hotel for a quick touch-up. Stop by through September 13th from 10am to 4pm for complimentary Maybelline makeovers, hairstyling by Ricardo Rojas Salon, hand treatments from Bioxidea, and skin consultations from SkinMedica. There will also be gifts, including samples from a designer fragrance bar, and livestreams of the shows. [RackedWire]
