    Thumbs down TJ Maxx Replica Finds

    I went to TJ Maxx for the first time in a long time over the weekend. I needed to get some stuff for the new apartment and decided to head over there to see what they had for a discount, as far as towels, rugs, etc.

    My mom was with me and wanted to walk through the purse section to see if there was anything of interest.

    I walked down the isle and see this:

    Which looks awfully similar to this:
    Attachment 15961

    Then I walk a little further and see this:
    Attachment 15962
    Which looks very similar to the Zagliani Puffy:
    Attachment 15963


    They weren't cheap bags either. What is up with all these "inspirations" / "replicas"?

    The Balenciaga "inspiration" was this disgusting patent PVC material. The Zagliani "inspiration" was "made in Italy" proudly displayed on the tag. Like it was real leather or something?

    Lot's of low-end brands will gain "inspiration" from designers. It happens all the time. Jeez, look at F21! Unfortunately, everything is just monkey see monkey do in this world.

    I'm sure people who buy those bags don't really know that it's inspired-by. It's still a shame.

    I didn't see the names, I should have written them down, lol. I agree that some people don't know that it's "inspired," but I still think these "designers" shouldn't be allowed to get away with such blatant imitation. I guess there are so many out there that they can't catch them all.

    How annoying, seriously.

    BTW, TJ Maxx has really cute stuff for the house.

    I would say the "copy cats" are to blame and so are the retail stores who sell them.

    Most people who buy these bags, buy them b'coz they like the design.

    Before i got into designer stuff, i had no clue about any designer names. I bought a handbag simply b'coz i liked the look. I had no idea or concept that these could have been copied from an original design.

    Are the attachments showing up in the window or do you have to click on them? I can't figure out what's going on with it. The new way to attach them into the reply is throwing me off.
