Floral Double-Take

Love Fashionista.com and the ‘Adventures in Copyright’, so when I saw this Wet Seal dress, I had to do a double-take because the print and style looked vaguely familiar. Crap, I mean I just learned my beloved Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties are Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall ’08 knock-offs.  Not that I care because they are still my favorite thing next to pasta and sleep.

Anyway, here is the Erin Wasson x RVCA Side Show Dress, which we all know and love.  Also available in the blue/purple color at Opening Ceremony.

Here is the Wet Seal dress ($23.50), offered in similar color patterns.

Yes, there are distinct differences in the silouettes.  But I figure, what the hell, I’ll call it out, if anything because they’re offered in similar color palettes.  Sure, the Wet Seal dress has a bubble hem, a ruched waist and is not 100% silk like the RVCA dress, but the similarities warrant a raised eyebrow.

    Oh my. The connection is totally undeniable. But very cute nonetheless!

    Although one might get a little annoyed at the “high street” stores creating a knock-off of a beloved designer, this is how fashion is made accessible to those making under a few mill a year. While I tend to stay away from disposable clothing stores like Wet Seal and Forever21, I am happy to purchase from lines at Nordstrom that seek to emulate the designers. Think of it as a tribute to the piece, rather than an insult.
