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 Vox.com, 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.

Racked became a place where professional and non-professional writers alike could write personal pieces about the things they bought and how they presented themselves. We know oftentimes a pair of jeans is not simply a pair of jeans, nor a tube of lipstick just a tube of lipstick; you do too. Here, some of our favorite essays and op-eds.
