I can't help but posting this. I'll admit I'm the first person to get annoyed when people go on the internet and complain about how high things are priced and wah wah wah whatever, but I was kind of shocked to see this! I love Free People's aesthetic, the way things are styled, and I've had lots of friends come and go from that company but when I saw how much they're selling their vintage things online for I almost like fainted. And apparently people actually pay these prices?!? Whattttttttttttt?? And once again, I want to clarify that I'm not knocking their clothes, style, website, or anything like that. I'm just wondering...should am I selling myself short?? Do people maybe think they are getting something more amazing because they're paying so much more for it? I'm on some serious psychological shit right now I think.
After browsing through their vintage section, i couldn't help comparing all of the very similar items I have up for sale at Some Velvet. On the left column you will see Free People stuff, and on the right, Some Velvet. Just saying.
