1) Soho: Coney Island's favorite offbeat boutique owner Lola Star has turned up in Soho at 435 Broome Street. Do not click through if you hate the color pink.
2) NYC: Check out Racked's updated Racked 38, the list of the city's definitive shopping experiences. There have been a lot of cuts since the last time around.
3) Soho: The two H&M stores in the Soho shopping mall (aka Broadway) just debuted their new looks today. Renovations! Expansions! Huge crowds! Check out what's been done to the Broadway and Spring and Broadway and Prince locations.
4) Meatpacking District: There's a new store in MePa called Maison Bellaish that's inspired by an old French dressing room and a life-sized mannequin named Fricase. Really!
