Here's what happened today in Racked cities around the country:
NEW YORK—Check out what Brooklynites were wearing on Bastille Day. Only two berets made the cut. We'll leave it up to you to determine whether that's a good thing or not.
LOS ANGELES—If you were wondering how much private concerts (plus photo-op!) with singer Macy Gray are going for these days, ask Gilt City. Hint: A lot.
CHICAGO—Chicago's Targets got a major beauty boost today when they launched the Target Beauty Concierge program, coming to a Target near you. Yes that means you too, Canada.
