She By Sheree?! More like She By Shein!
Sheree Whitfield finally launched her much-awaited She By Sheree line over the weekend; however, the moment, which was five years in the making, was a major flop.
To start, the She By Sheree website crashed after Sheree launched two new products, the VPL Jogger, $125, and The Trina Two Piece Set, $130.
“Dear Fans, Due to the overwhelming interest in She by Shereé, the influx of love is crashing the website !! But please understand it’s being worked on, so continue to check back in within the next 24 hours. We are working to get this quickly resolved. We wish to serve you soon. Thank you for your interest. Thanks to the customers whom we were able to serve so far tonight,” the website read after it crashed.
To date, the website remains down.
Before the website crashed, fans quickly noticed that Sheree’s designs may not be all that original. Allegedly, the new launches on Sheree’s site are nothing more than pieces from Shein and Amazon with the She By Sheree label smacked on them with marked-up price tags.
Sheree’s gray two-piece athleisure set sells for $130, while nearly identical versions are being sold on Shein and Amazon for a fraction of the price.
“So after 10+ years of no fashion, you just put your name in a look-alike Jeffree Star logo, printed it [on] an Ali Express/Shein garment, and charged it 130$?!” one fan quipped on Twitter.
“Gurl, How dreadful! We were rooting for you smh. She by Sheree? More [like] She by Shein Express wtf?! You know what, #RHOA,” a second fan said.
“Went to bed with no clothes on the site, and it crashing to basically Sonja by Sonja Morgan 2.0,” Love Andy C tweeted. A fan then asked if Sheree “copied” designs, to which Love Andy C explained, “Not exactly. Some clothing sites buy up already made designs, put their label on them and mark them up.”
“Sheree really slapped a logo on this design and is selling it for $130. You can get the same one on Shein for $7,” Threewick wrote on Twitter.
“This man said “Shein by Sheree,” and I need ya’ll to know I’m in shambles,” a fan shared, while another fan wrote, “She by Somebody Else!”
