Ultra-manly boutique Rothman's has invited ultra girly boutique Olive & Bette's on a month-and-a-half-long date: Starting November 20th, the latter will pop up inside the former's Union Square flagship through the end of the year, according to Crain's.
"December is not our strong period," Olive & Bette's founder Stacey Pecor told the publication. "This give me an added outlet." The store's signature shocking pink color, however, won't be making an appearance—as it's the very first time Rothman's will sell womenswear, Olive & Bette's is toning down their look with darker, muted colors.
No word on what the pop-up will have in terms of merchandise (we're guessing lots of Rebecca Taylor, ElevenParis, Joie, and Nanette Lepore), but either way, consider it an easy daytime date option for when you and the fashion-y dude in your life need to go "holiday gift shopping" (read: attempting to look for gifts for other people while ending up just buying stuff for yourselves).
