ONLINE SHOPPING—If ever there was a season for letting your hippie flag fly, it's summer, and if ever there was a time to do so on the cheap, it's during the Free People summer sale. Flared pants in both denim and cotton, plenty of swimwear, and all the crochet a girl could ever
want need: It's all there. [Racked Inbox]
CONTEST—Head here through July 10 to enter to win a trip to San Francisco, plus a $1,000 Madewell shopping spree and a Benefit Cosmetics beauty makeover. Also, various prizes are given away daily before the big winner is announced. Two cheers for girlfriends and summer roadtrips! [Racked Inbox]
