Here's what happened today in Racked cities around the country:
NEW YORK—Insta-brighten your day with these brilliant spring shoes. Need more cheery news? Three of the pairs are under $70.
LOS ANGELES—LA's most stylish toddler, Alaia Rose Barbier, is back with an interview, or rather the interview is with her mother, Kardashian stylist Monica Rose, which is probably best for everyone.
CHICAGO—Walmart Express opened in River North to a respectable-sized crowd of protestors, and Racked Chicago was there to live-blog the whole thing.
