GREENPOINT—Stop by Loren Cronk (80 Nassau Ave) tonight between 6:30pm and 11pm for the book launch party of Amy Leverton's Denim Dudes. Get your copy of the street style guide focusing solely on denim signed at the local handmade denim store and repair hub, and expect to find some drinks from Brooklyn Brewery, too.
UNION SQUARE—The Vintage Twin is starting their week-long pop up sale at 42B West 14th Street, and it is basically a young hippie's paradise: Concert tees, tie dye, dresses, skirts, and other vintage items, as well as a variety of accessories, are available for men and women. The store will also have a "jeanius bar" where customers can be sized, fit, and styled—think distressing, holes, etc. The shop will be open daily from 11am to 8pm through Wednesday, July 29th.
NOLITA—Madison Harding, an online store with vintage-inspired shoes and accessories (think flatform blue suede sandals), is popping up within ASKA collection at 252 Mott Street starting tomorrow and running through July 30th. Shop their spring and summer collections offline for the first time ever, and check out the collaborative designs with Madeline Poole and Stevie Dance (now think metallic sandals with a banana print on the top).
MIDTOWN—National Dance Day is this coming Saturday, July 25th, so Vixen Workout is hosting a master class at 520 Eighth Avenue to inspire everyone to get their groove on. The two-hour session costs $25 and you can reserve your spot here.
