COMPLEX: This smoky, sheer top from L.A.’s Rozae Nichols is seven kinds of gorgeous: It’s gauzy, it’s pleated, it gathers in mystifying, imagination-piquing ways, it’s asymmetrical, and there’s a suggestion of flowers in there somewhere. Wearable art, is what this is. $324 at Funky LaLa, 422 East 9th Street; 212-260-2865.
DO NOT MISS: Comfortable footwear alert: Tonight, Lucky magazine’s Boutique Crawl 2009 is turning Bleecker Street into a magical candyland of treats: Hit two dozen shops for special discounts (15% off at Diptyque, 30% at Steven by Steve Madden), styling from Lucky editors, icy cocktails, live music and treats galore (Bond No. 9 will be giving out Magnolia cupcakes! People!). Bleecker Street between 7th Avenue and Bank Street (download the Crawl map here), 6-9PM.
STUFF IT: The everything-must-be-perfect-or-this-puppy-gets-it Martha Stewart coda for cooking is frustrating to many, but actress, writer, and “lifelong eater” Heather Whaley put wit to paper over it. Pick up her real-world antidote “Eat Your Feelings: A Recipe for Self-Loathing” ($25.95, Penguin) at the Lincoln Triangle Barnes & Noble tonight; Whaley will be on hand to discuss included recipes (e.g. Sky-High Banana Cream Pie Because You're Dating a Married Guy, Lonely Christmas Pudding) and sign copies. 7:30PM.
