Consider Yourself Wu’d
Your Game Plan: Up and out by 7:30 a.m. so you can be the first in the doors to scoop up armfuls of Jason Wu's new line of retro-dorable structured dresses, separates, and bags. If you want to skip the lines and don't mind paying shipping and handling watch for Wu's collection to debut on late tonight.
When: Tomorrow, stores open at 8 a.m.
Details: Figure out your plan of attack by perusing all 29 pieces. Then prep yourself for the season with a glimpse at the lookbooks for the Mossimo, Merona, and Converse One Star spring collections.

Peaking Your Pintrest
Soft chignons, street style, and some of Oscar de la Renta's greatest hits (by his PR guru) top's top 10 people to follow on Pinterest. The popular site allows anyone (so feel free to jump in) to create grids of favorite looks, trends, or products for others to peruse.
Details: Find one inspiration board (or ten) now.

Spring is here with a whole new crop of Tiare Hawaii. We’re loving the dramatic, cut-out sleeves, one-shoulder dresses, dip-dyed and ombre dresses, and lacy tanks.

When: 7:30 p.m., February 12 through 16.
