Thinking about going Natalie Portman short?

For details call 534-7503. The nonprofit organization provides hairpieces to people 18 and younger who suffer from medical hair loss. Monetary donations are also welcome.

DESIGNER BAGS ON A TIGHT PURSE-STRING BUDGET
Designer bag fetishists (and there are a lot of you), you've gotta check this out: Bag Borrow or Steal, the Web site where you can borrow a designer bag — we're talking Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Gucci — for as long as you like.
When you're over it, drop the bag in the mail and wait for your new one to arrive. Think Netflix for the pretty-purse set.
Membership use starts at $24.95 a month. Go to www.bagborroworsteal.com to sign up.
