    Mellow Foley + Corinna City Tote, a victim


    The Foley + Corinna City tote is such a fabulous bag. With it's two-in-one, clutch-to-tote design, it's a no-brainer that this bag is such a hit.

    What's sad is lately Foley + Corinna handbags, especially the City, has been replicated by many counterfeiters, and it's now common to see this bag along with other rip-off Vuittons and Prada's on Canal Street. Even Forever21 is copying the design, which is nothing new when it is a popular style. No designer is safe.

    Now for the surprise.. the bag above is actually not by Foley + Corinna. It is forever21's plastic "Versatile Hobo Handbag"

    < * gasps * >

    It's described as a perfect sized handbag to hold all your essentials. Details include an optional shoulder strap, two exterior zippered compartments with tassel zippers, two interior zippered compartments, and antique metal hardware. Hold it by the handles for a hobo handbag look or fold it and wear it on your shoulders. Sounds pretty identical to the Foley + Corinna City, don't you agree?

    The difference is not only the material (foley + corinna being made of leather while forever21 uses plastic), but the quality.

    I understand the reason why someone would pick the F21 bag over the F+C, to save money right? But think of it in the long run. Do you want a bag that would last more than a season without fraying and falling apart in your hands? Or wouldn't you like to have a bag that gets attention, in a positive way? You don't want to be known as that girl that carries fakes!

    Maybe these deals will set you in the right direction, and away from that fake F21:
    ShopBop - 25% off everything with code "inthefamily25"
    Pink Mascara - 10% of everything with code "enjoy10"

    Foley + Corinna bags are also available at these locations:
    Luna Boston
    Stefani Bags
    Revolve Clothing
    Fashion Chateau

    I my F + C City Tote!! I would really like to add another to my collection some day. I love the versatility of wearing it folded over or by the handles when you have a lot to carry.

    I can totally see why they copied it!

    Don't forget F+C has been featured in sample sales! Sometimes you can get them for 50% or even 60% off!

    F21 copies about pretty much anything that sells, Lmao! I still like them though, I am not going to lie, but besides their clothing I wouldn't buy anything else in their store. I think they handbags and shoes are made of super cheap materials but their clothes are ok, the stuff I have from them have lasted me for a least a couple of years.

    Actually, I don't mind because I find with F21 items, you can tell right away it is not high quality. It's a very versatile design and even though it's a shame they didn't even try to change anything about the design, I'm sure you'll be able to recognize it's a knock-off rather than the real thing right away. F21 uses pleather and I find they do a shoddy job with finishes (seams, stitches, etc.) whereas the leather on the real City tote is VERY soft and buttery.

    That's just crazy. I can't believe there are so many brand out there that copy the FC design.
