Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan

Kardashian Rip-Offs?

It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  Over at Goddesschess we've had people rippping off Mr. Don's fantastic graphic ideas for years, some more blatant than others.  Now tonight I came across this article:

Latest Kardashian scandal: Kardashian Kollection bags look a lot like knockoffs

Balenciaga bag vs. Kardashian Kollection purse: knockoff or coincidence?

If you suspect Kim Kardashian’s marriage was fake, wait until you see her new collection of handbags, which Fashionista says look very familiar. Kim and Khloe went down to Australia for the launch interviews (see below), where Khloe said “these are our designs, we design everything” while Kim insisted that “we're extremely involved in every last process." Hmm. We perused the full line, and we think the Kardashians should give a little credit to Balenciaga, Hermes, Chanel, Alexander Wang, YSL, and many other designers. The sisters have admittedly knocked off logos, dresses, and now their entire line of handbags raises similar questions. True, the Kollection bags are a good deal cheaper than their lookalikes. From obvious similarities to very close shapes and colors, we’ve rounded up 11 Kardashian Kollection bags that look like knockoffs of other designs. Do you you see the resemblance?

First up: a riff on Balenciaga. On the left we have their Arena Classic Part Time bag, $1,545. On the right, Kardashian Kollection Zip Feature Bag, $59.95. Kim Kardashian wears her Balenciaga bag everywhere so we feel there's no feigning ignorance about this blatant replica.

Chloe vs. Kardashian Kollection

On the left: Chloe Marcia Medium Leather Tote, $1,650. On the right: Kardashian Kollection Tote Bag, $99.95. Same shape, same handles, same curved front flap. Coincidence? You decide.

Oh my. Well, the rest of the article is the same, with photograph after photograph.of comparisons.  I wonder if there are law suits being filed right now, or already been?  No wonder Ms. Kim K. is looking so grim these days.  I don't for an instant believe she's actually really sorry about divorcing her unsuspecting husband of 72 days.
