The Struggle Of Being A Free People Addict

Something my generation seems to adore, and yes I am guilty of this, is paying top dollar to look as if you have only one dollar. Many renowned retailers have caught on to this trend...

One of them being Free People

I cannot lie. Though I recognize the problem, and quite frankly the ignorance, in continuing to shop so irresponsibly, I cannot and will not stop walking into that beautiful little store which reminds me of a peaceful community yoga studio and a trendy thrift store all at the same time.

Here are six struggles all Free People Junkies understand all too well...


1. The initial adrenaline rush you experience when you're only 50 ft away from the store.

2. That first step through the door when it's too late to walk away from the inevitable debt you'll be facing.

3. The upsetting reality that Free People will never actually be free...

4. There are so many bralettes. One for every yoga class you'll never attend.

Too bad none of them support the girls...

5. Fighting with the hand sewn dressing room curtains.

6. Figuring out how you'll pay the $350 for your soft maroon T-shirt, sunset orange bralette, and vegan leather pants.
