A.P.C. There you have it, folks! Kanye West's seven-piece line of clothing for French brand A.P.C. is officially for sale, and includes shirts, hoodies, and jeans ranging from $120 to $280. Of particular interest: This plain white T-shirt, dubbed the "Hip-Hop T-shirt," which is on offer for $120.

There doesn't seem to be anything particularly special about the 100% cotton shirt, save for its "very loose" fit, so it appears it costs upwards of $100 strictly because Kanye's associated with it. And considering Kanye's occasional gripes with the fashion industry, which he himself acknowledges, we're a bit surprised that he has the gumption to charge that much for a plain white tee.
As for the rest of the line, it's more staple pieces at not-so-staple prices. We are definite fans of this comfy-looking hooded sweatshirt in fleece, but we're not sure we're ready to drop $280 on it. (After all, we could get

The teen-movie makeover is a time-honored tradition, representing a turning point for many coming-of-age films: The ugly duckling finds someone with a vision, the worldly friend teases out the latent coolness hidden deep within the dweeb, and voila! Everyone learns a lesson about self-acceptance. Or something. But in reality, it isn't that easy...or, cheap.

Critics may say that the ultimate makeover in Clueless was the movie itself, since the film is a remake of the literary classic Emma by Jane Austen. As if! Trust, there's nothing quite as remarkable as Tai's epic makeover, but this is no ordinary job. We know Tai got the cream of the crop when it came to products, services, and Cher-approved advice. But we can't help but wonder how much it must've cost. Ahead, we've broken down Tai's transformation to see just what would go into such a dramatic makeover, and reveal getting all Cher'd out may

I was never very good at anatomy or biology or science in general, but I do know this little factoid quite well: when it comes to regulating human body temperature, pretty much all the action happens from the waist up. It's why you can wear a little dress and sheer tights in 50-degree weather and still feel okay as long as you've got a hat and scarf and all that good stuff up top.
So anyway, the legs: they're not as important, which is good to remember in summer, when the default thinking is that you've gotta wear a thigh-high hemline to stay cool. That's really not true, especially when it's not just hot out but also blindingly sunny. In that case, pants might actually be the smartest route to go. When they're loose-fit, light-colored and made of crepe-y, breathable material-no leather, wool or denim-some pants can actually keep you cooler than shorts, letting a little breeze in while (here's the kicker) keeping the sun out. Check out our nine favorite pairsRead More »from Nine Pants that Keep You Cooler Than Shorts

When I was young, I never wore button down blouses because I felt like it made me look old and too professional (and as a 15-year-old, that was not exactly the look I was going for). Most likely, my one light purple, heavily starched option made that a true statement. But over the years, I've shed my dislike of collared button-up blouses and discovered how incredibly versatile they are. Styled with a chambray button-up from Target and a gingham button-up from Forever 21, here are 7 creative ways to wear them.

"We're always looking for new things, and for us it was a great opportunity to serve our customers," Tara Darrow, a spokesperson for Nordstrom, told Yahoo! Shine.

Repeat after me: "There's nothing wrong with showing a little skin." Just a tiny bit here and there never hurt anybody.

The wedding dress gets all the attention (and for good reason!) but lately, we've been loving rehearsal dinner dresses. If you're having a more traditional ceremony, the wedding dress comes with restrictions (long! white!) that can limit your personal style. But when it comes to the rehearsal dinner, it's pretty much anything goes. You can wear a shorter white dress, or go for a fun color or print. Here are our current favorite rehearsal dinner dresses.

It looked like rain on Wednesday morning, which was lucky. That way no one needed to mourn the wholesome, outdoor summertime activities - bike rides, camping, swimming - forsaken by the 30-odd girls cooped up in a midtown Westin. They had convened for Modeling Camp, the $1,000, four-day boot camp that teaches girls ages 12 to 18 how to work their angles and a runway before sending them off with a portfolio of professional photos and an audience with casting directors.

It was photo-shoot day, and the girls were split among four stations in a carpeted conference room. On one side, makeup artists' brushes swallowed their tiny features. On the other, hairdressers coaxed their - basically uniform - shoulder-blade-length hair in and out of loose, wavy ringlets. In back, an acting coach fought for the attention of the rest, who played with their hair, held each other's hands, and coordinated dress

We like to believe that mostly all shopping problems can be met with a clever solution, but as Fast Company reports, there may be one shopping dilemma that perhaps we haven't been anticipating. Stalking. Yes, kind of like what you might do on your Facebook news feed. According to the report, while e-commerce sites have often been able to track shopper's habits and purchases to learn more about their customers, free-standing stores have not typically had the same capability. That's where Wi-Fi signal tracking has helped.
Make no mistake: the WiFi tracking that can access you smartphone is smart. According to London-based Realeyes, technology is able to sync with cameras within the store to recognize shoppers' facial emotions or "happiness levels" while roaming the floors. Furthermore, even those customers who don't use the store's Wi-Fi system can be tracked. "If a customer's smartphone is set to passively search for Wi-Fi networks, their movementRead More »from Are Stores Tracking Your Shopping Habits Through Your Cell Phone?
