5 Things To Know This AM

If you haven't stopped by Bloomingdale's lately, you're due for a catch-up. Shopping-wise, yes, but also to hear from Michelle Smith, designer and founder of Milly. Check out her "Talk is Chic" video — it's streaming in the Bloomie's window displays! — to get inspired by her design process and excited about her spring '13 line. (Milly)
Ever pull out one of your old frocks that hasn't been worn in years and make a totally cool outfit? That's the idea behind the Nanette Lepore archive sale, where you can shop runway pieces from the past ten years for majorly discounted prices. The event's open to the public from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, but since you've all been really good, you get first dibs as VIPs on Monday, March 11 from 4 to 7 p.m. (Nanette Lepore)

When a contest is this easy to enter, it'd be silly not to try your luck. Rebecca Taylor's offering a $1,000 shopping spree to update your spring wardrobe, and all you've got to do is like the page on Facebook. What's that? You're already a fan? Thought so. Fill out the entry form that'll be posted on Monday, and keep those fingers crossed. (Rebecca Taylor)
If you've been reading R29 NYC, you know how psyched we are about The Armory Arts Week. We think you'll join in on all the hype with a Lower East Side gallery stroll through over 50 exhibits this Sunday, March 10, from noon to 6 p.m. (Lower East Side NY)
We've heard of a five-course meal. But ten courses? Well, you better be hungry. Lucky for you, chef Jesse Schenker is a talented (and super versatile) cook. Once a month, he puts on an intricate dinner at Recette and treats guests to a huge feast. If you're already pulling out your calendar, the next meal's on Monday, March 11. We'll meet you there.
