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, 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.

Did you know there was actually a list, compiled by a legitimate writer in a serious magazine, ranking the most Bohemian major cities in the United States? Surprise, surprise, there wasn't an OC city on it, but that didn't stop Free People from opening a new store in South Coast Plaza last week. Lots of floaty, mixed print maxi-dresses; tiers; ruffles; the usual Free People merchandise. The store also stocks We the Free, Genetic Denim, and we saw a distressed leather bags from Frye. The store is downstairs near Bloomingdale's—and also near the future home of the "best Banana Republic store in the world."
