Beware of the Counterfeits

Counterfeit dresses rarely look like the image they claim to be online. Quite often, girls enter boutiques, try on dresses, find one they like, then order it off of a random website, excited to be finding “the dress” they love at such a small price. However, when that package comes in the mail, the tears often flow as the poor victim realizes that her dress is far from wearable. Just this past prom season, a customer came into Glitterati because she needed a prom dress. She told us she had ordered a dress from a random website, and when it arrived, the dress was too short — and the girl was only 5’6”! She had to take Benadryl because she broke out in red hives. At first, we weren’t sure if it was the dress or the anxiety from getting ripped-off. It seems her skin was only red in the areas where she had contact with the dress. After hearing horror stories like this one, we clearly wouldn’t want this to happen to anyone else! When buying a dress, buy in-store or from a certified retailer to ensure that you are getting a real, designer dress! Check out these knock-offs — pretty sure you wouldn’t want to be caught dead in one of these…
