Hi, HH Hotties! So, maybe I'm just over analyzing things but I was looking at handbags online after seeing a QVC (my guilty pleasure; I love any handbag related presentation) presentation of B. Makowsky and noticed two styles that are very similar to HH classics including the Lorca & Havana Hobo.

Lorca like bag:

Havana Hobo ;like bag:

The bags look nice and are offered in great colors. They just strike me as too similar to HH styles. What do you think?

In my closet!
OMG! THEY LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME! Down to the tassels and the pockets. I mean, they aren't even variations...exact copies! I hope HH knows about this! SHAME!

wow - glad I don't own a B Makowsky. And now I never will. I feel embarrased for them!

The more I compare my HH bags to my other brands, I just have more and more respect and love for the designs, quality, and details. Stay original HH, and I'll remain a loyal customer :heart:

So glad I'm not the only that noticed. The Havana like bag at least has a slight yet unfortunate variation with the really small back pocket but the Lorca like bag is an exact copy!

Maybe someone with a QVC account would write a review with a link to the original.
