jeffrey campbell ripped off a topshop design!

Sinnita Frill Platform shoes

Last night I was in search of a nice pair of boots for fall/winter, or really just a nice pair of shoes that I could pick up before we leave for Europe next week. As I was checking out the Urban Outfitters selection, I couldn’t help but notice a blatant design rip off — an uncanny replica of a pair of shoes I purchased months ago (winter!) — by Jeffrey Campbell, being sold now at Urban Outfitters.

They’re so similar, but honestly the Topshop pair kicks Jeffrey Campbell’s ass. And I’m usually a big fan of his designs, but compared with the pair that I own, his heels look like they should be stocked at Payless. Lesson learned? Know your stuff. If you think something looks hip and original, it’s probably been done before and done better.
