LOS ANGELES: In its previous life, 8032 West 3rd Street housed a Rhino Records holiday pop-up shop, and now it's home to Envi, an environmentally-minded boutique designed to feel "like a closet." Racked LA takes a tour, reporting that prices range from $75 for a Katharine Hamnett tee to $210 for a snap Beau Soleil dress. Even better: One percent of all purchases will go to environmental organizations.

CHINATOWN: Worth clicking through for the insanely pretty photo--and the model's interesting eyebrows. New High (M)art, a fashion-y rotating pop-up store, is putting together "thematic moments."
