Does Bluefly Sell Fakes? The Fake Debate

Does Bluefly Sell Fakes? The Fake Debate

(Editor’s note: This post about Bluefly fakes was updated 08/17 to include more sources and Bluefly’s statement on authenticity.) The fake debate continues and apparently our friends over at the internet’s number one designer outlet, Bluefly, is caught up in the middle. There’s been quite a bit of chatter on the net regarding Bluefly’s selling of fake handbags, namely Balenciaga and possibly fake Tommy Hilfiger (really, why in the world would anyone need to sell fake Tommy handbags when you can get them for $19.99 at TJ Maxx).

Check out the chatter for yourself:

Now, I’ve bought things from Bluefly before and all the things I’ve purchased have been real. However, where there’s smoke, there’s usually a little simmer of fire. I emailed Bluefly to give them the opportunity to respond and here’s their response:

Yep, nothing.

But, at some point, Bluefly did publish a statement about authenticity on its website. You can find it here.

Just got a fake bag from Bluefly today. Never thought the company was shady, but clearly it is. Beware and do not buy handbags from BF.

Yep, lots of fakes at BlueFly

Yep, to my disappointment, BlueFly does indeed sell fakes. My attempt to purchase Koolaburra classic short boot was brought up short by the word "China" in their detail site of origin of fur. Koolaburra does NOT manufacture nor purchase suede/fur from China, it is all handcrafted and "made in Australia".....if I want cheap imitations I will buy UGG brand or others. Also, a warning to the buyer is that BlueFly was selling them at 50% less than the actuall cost.....that right there should say, "buyer beware"......

Absolutely Blue Fly sells knock offs! I purchased a Jimmy Choo purse and when it arrived it looked like a Jimmy Who!!!! This purse is ridiculous, buyer beware do not purchase from blue fly. I can't help but believe all of their merchandise is NOT authenic!!!! I paid $1000.00 for a that looks like I paid $.1 and to make matters worse it's not Even a good copy!!!

don't buy fake if you can't afford real

So why is it still affiliated with Project Runways? Man thought it would be a credit site selling real stuff since it endorses some of the stuff for the show.
