Every day, we troll the online stores to know what's cute, what's ugly, and what's just bad. And every day, we find ourselves staring directly into the face of Forever 21's cap-locked logo. So today, while doing my daily clicks, my dear friend Jyll glanced at my screen and exclaimed "Fendi rip-off!" It took me a second to notice, probably because the Fendi original walked the runway last Fall, which was basically like eons ago, but Jyll couldn't have been more right. The Forever 21 version on the right features nearly the same color-block design as the Fendi original, right down to the rectangle shape near the zipper that, in the Fendi, handily allows you to convert the clutch to a shoulder bag - but in the Forever 21, well, just tries to look like it's the Fendi. That being said, the cheaper colors are considerably uglier. The dark green and muted yellow look far less cute than Fendi's original zippy yellow, blue and pink. Not to mention the cheap patent leather looks, well... -- HAYLEY PHELAN
