Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
We've made no secret of the fact that we're not fans of Gilt Groupe, and we don't exactly love this Fendi bag, but reading the harrowing story about an East Coast colleague's low-grade tragedy just reinforces our disenchantment with flash sites. We know we're in the minority on this one. But take a moment to educate yourself, cuz we'd hate to hear about this happening to a reader. [Racked National]
