Do Not Want: Ironic $400 Feather Headdress

Coachella just kicked off music festival season, which means ironic teepees, face paint, and other ridiculous ripoffs of Native American culture abound. Take, for example, this feathered headdress, which is currently being sold by Free People for $438.

Cheapskate: Free People Accessories Sale

Free People is all about the boho-chic look and is very good about not making women look like hippies stuck in the late-'60s. But today, I took a closer look at Free People accessories, which have a bohemian vibe and look more expensive than they are -- especially since there's a big ol' sale going…

Dress Like Kim Kardashian Without The Price Tag

We are in love with Kim Kardashian's Free People boots that fold over completely and have a zipper down the side. But our love ends with the $358 price tag, which has just a tad too many figures. That's where these suede shoes come in -- with a number that's affordable! For just…
