EVERYWHERE: Per a reader, we learn that American Apparel has quite the extensive line of tie-dyed garments, running the gamut from tube bras to harem pants to unitards. They're even selling RIT dye and plain t-shirts for those who want to get crafty on their own time. Although we don't mind it so much, our tipster is not impressed, quipping "File this one next to hypercolor and fannypacks..." [RackedWire]

HOLLYWOOD: Can't wait until next week to find out what happens on the premiere of 90210? Then head to Nike Sportswear's pop-up space at The Montalban in Hollywood (1615 Vine Street), which will be hosting the Season 2 launch party tomorrow night. Along with a VIP screening of the show, you'll be able to rub elbows with a few of the less famous cast members (sorry, Jenny Garth and Shenae Grimes fans), and take pictures in a "special photobooth". To get your name on the list, RSVP here, and prepare to bring a pair of old sneakers as your entry fee (all will be donated to Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe program). [RackedWire]
