For the first time since she and Kanye welcomed North West into the world, Kim Kardashian emerged from supersecret postpartum hiding and was photographed leaving an L.A. medical facility. And what we're seeing is totally heartwarming. Not only is Kanye adorable and showing actual signs of happiness, but Kim looks amazing.

Though she's allowed herself to be photographed, Kim has taken care to cover baby North from any cameras. After all, her daddy's still holding out on that Vogue cover). Also completely covered are any signs of Kim's post-baby body, hidden behind a loose button-down and an additional shirt around her waist.
We're not at all surprised that the couple has employed a nanny, but we are shocked at how different Kim looks here. Seriously, doesn't she look way younger without makeup? Consider us the leader in the make-under campaign for Kim K. Plus, we can't get over how sweet and smiley

- Nike halted production on a line of sportswear on Wednesday after an outcry that the designs were culturally insensitive. The women's running tights, bodysuit, and sports bra in the Nike Pro Tattoo Tech line were decorated with a pattern based on Samoan tattoos called pe'a, which are traditionally reserved for men.
"To the outside world it's just a design," a commenter, Freddie Ika, wrote on a Change.org petition that was launched on August 2 to protest the sale of the items. "But to my Polynesian people, it's sacred." Another comment read, "I am 100% Samoan and I find Nike's blatant disrespect and profit over my culture's way of life shameless and irreverent. The tatau is thousands of years old with a tradition of honor and you have reduced it to $80 Spanx. Remove at once!"

Image via Stylecaster By Meghan Blalock, StylecasterIn normal speak: if you buy a dress at JCPenney to wear to a wedding, for example, leave the tag on, wear it once, and then bring it back the next week for a refund, JCPenney sends the tracking of that particular item to another company, who saves it in your "profile.
Before you head to JCPenney, Victoria's Secret, and Nike to make your next "I'm going to buy this, leave the tags on, wear it once, then bring it right back" purchase, you might want to think twice: A new AP report reveals that these are among a group of brands who will now be tracking customers' purchases to prevent such activities.

According to the report, these companies are monitoring customers' returns-with and without receipts-and they're also "outsourcing that information to a third-party company, which creates a 'return profile' to catalog and analyze the customer's returns at the store."

If you looked in my closet right now and checked out all of my shoes, you would see a lot of black, a lot of brown, and a little bit of white and nude. And while neutral colored heels are certainly a closet essential, candy-colored pumps are suddenly showing up everywhere and I have to admit that I'm totally in love with this trend.

.We've rattled off these stats before: The average American woman is a size 14. The plus-size consumer comprises 67% of the apparel-purchasing community. However, so many companies still refuse to expand their size range. In fact, they're practically fighting against the opportunity.
From Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries' "anti-fat" stance to Lululemon's unwillingness to offer larger sizes, it seems that the stigma behind plus-sized fashion is still alive and well. "I understand that the process of designing and creating a plus-size range is a huge and challenging undertaking, but I have no doubt that many designers and brands don't expand simply because they don't want fat people wearing their clothing," said Gabi Gregg, InStyle contributor and blogger of GabiFresh. "Most designers who don't make plus sizes feel similarly; [Jeffries] just happened to be stupid enough to say it out loud."
