This Friday, August 27th drop off an ex-boyfriend's sweatshirt (or even the ex himself!) and pick up a new pair of jeans, for free. The gist is, bring by anything that doesn't fit anymore and swap it for something that is guarenteed to fit much better: Levi's new Curve ID jeans. Style Editor and TV Personality Bobbie Thomas will be on hand to give fashion tips and answer style questions, while Levi’s denim fit specialists personally fit each woman in her perfect pair of Levi’s Curve ID jeans. The event lasts from 10AM until 9PM in Bryant Park. The weather report looks spectacular come Friday, and so Chic recommends you stop by during the sunny hours to grab some jeans, see the other local artists, and relax on the grass while listening to Grammy nominee Janelle Monae croon throughout the park!

Do like the Brits and carve out a slice of time for tea this afternoon. Paul Smith appreciates a leisurely 5 o'clock teatime, and most recently he has teamed up with fine-china producer Thomas Goode to create a new line of teacups and teapots. His famous stripes will adorn the classic shapes, and they are all finished off with a touch of liquid gold leaf. Crumpets, anyone?

Happy Birthday, Mitsouku! The perfume created by Jacques Guerlain turns 90 this year, and what better way to celebrate a 90th birthday than with an ultra-luxe, limited-edition perfume bottle? The fragrance comes in containers of baccarat crystal decorated with jade and pearls, and this work of art seems almost too extraordinary to dab on your pulse points. Only 5 of these babies will be sold in the US, and they go for a mind-boggling $7K. Yes, really! THE DETAILS: Bergdorf Goodman, $7,000

If only we could be this efficient with our shopping! Industrial designer Cornelius Cormanns is redefining the terms "compact" and "cost-effective" with his new Buffalino personal camping unit, which is a three-wheeled, electric-powered vehicle with neon accents. A fridge, gas tank, cooking zone, storage space, clothes drying rack, two seats, and sleeping area somehow all fit into this tiny camper, which looks to be no more than 7 or 8 feet in length. The best part? Use the contoured roof for stargazing (or bronzing) purposes.

A brief Chic history lesson: Photographer Bob Willoughby was first called in to shoot Audrey Hepburn one morning shortly after her arrival to Hollywood in 1953, and he was completely enraptured with the iconic beauty ever since. Taschen Books has published a collector's edition hardback featuring Willoughby's photographs of Hepburn from 1953-1966, and each of the 1,000 copies is numbered and signed by Willoughby. We're thinking a dreary day like today is perfect for an Audrey movie marathon, non? THE DETAILS: Taschen, $500
