I’m not an expert or anything, but I’ll give my two cents!
I thought that SheInside was based in China? It seems to say so on their “About Us" page, but I honestly don’t know. SammyDress, I know for a fact, is based in China and the two sites sell similar, if not the exact same items. I’ve browsed both in the past and I see that a lot of their stock overlap. For instance, this is the exact same dress worn by probably the exact same model:
It just looks like SheInside just carries more. In any case, I actually do expect sites like SheInside to carry fake items. The prices are really too good to be true and the first time I visited SheInside, I checked out their About Us page, which stated that they’re based in China, so that raised a few flags regardless of whether it’s true or not. It is a shame that these items are often mistaken as authentic, so I agree that labeling the items as imitations would make things better. But overall, I think sites like SheInside are good for accessing Asian fashion and clothing pieces you wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise as long as you’re okay with knowing they’re not authentic.
I really don’t want to blame any buyers out there, but when you order things online, you have to order with discretion. We’re all equally vulnerable to buying fake items, so you always have to do your research to protect yourself!
