Portable is hosting a Curators Conference in September, featuring some of the most influential names in fashion and media (our own Philippe von Borries, included!).

Have your wallets at the ready when Seize Sur Vingt's "legendary" online sample sale goes live on Wednesday — shirts, suits, jackets, sweaters, and shoes will all be up for grabs. And, if you're not one for shopping on the web, there's always their in-store mark-downs, which starts on Saturday and will be selling dead stock at low, low prices. (Seize Sur Vignt)
Looking for some southern comfort? Brooklyn's Nitehawk Cinema has what you need. The joint movie theater and restaurant is launching Country Brunchin', mixing movies, music and meals on the first weekend of each month. (Nitehawk Cinema)
Vintage eyeglass retailer Moscot is launching eight new styles exclusive to their New York stores. The Court Street boutique just put up some must-see window decorations, so we're planning to head out to Brooklyn to do some window shopping (and maybe even some real shopping). (Moscot)
