JUST OPEN: Christopher Winterbourne and Philippa Content have stuffed their new Brook Farm General Store in Williamsburg with curated clusters of vintage or vintage-inspired finery of the kind a good old-fashioned general store would carry: ticking-striped pillowcases, ice cream scoops, horn-handled knives. We'd like to move right in. Brook Farm General Store, 75 South 6th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718- 388-8642.
LIVE ACTION: To announce the new Bb.Styling Bar and Shop at Bloomingdale's (part of the store’s totally redesigned main-floor cosmetics department), Bumble and Bumble will take over one of the store’s windows and make over models with multiple hairstyles today – and you, curious onlookers, can then stroll in and get a makeover yourself for just $35. Monday, October 19 at Bloomingdale's, 1000 Third Avenue (live window located at corner of Lexington Avenue and 60th Street); 12-2 and 4-7PM.
STAPLE: You need this gunmetal grey Claudie Pierlot ruffled miniskirt, perfect for pairing with those ubiquitous-all-of-a-sudden over-the-knee boots and scampering through the fall leaves. $198 at Otte, 37 North Moore Street; 212-431-8501.
