I think we all know I'm right when I say that Free People is one of the more tempting places when it comes to wanting to spend all your money.

Well, this post is apt to make you want to spend even more money than you normally would, because it's filled with the things that Free People customers really and truly adore. I went through and found the things with lots and lots (and lots!) of positive reviews!

Why are you still reading this?

LET'S BEGIN.

1. An off-the-shoulder smocked crop top so your outfits always meet you *half way* in the morning.

Promising review: "This has become one of my favorite things to wear. It is very, very comfortable, and I love that I can easily go braless without feeling self conscious. The material is really stretchy, so I think this top can accommodate people of various sizes. It's also really easy to pair with anything. I have worn this top for casual situations as well as more dressy ones. I'd recommend this to anyone, and I am seriously considering getting one in every color!" —billieblueazaleaPrice: $38 (available in sizes XS/S-M/L and in 11 colors)
