The backlash has been pouring in for She By Sheree.

Sheree Whitfield‘s She By Sheree venture has been something she’s been talking about making a reality for years now. However, on the current season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Sheree wanted to change the narrative. And she planned to finally get the brand going. Sheree figured one of the best ways to do this is to have a fashion show. She struggled to get all her pieces in on time, but the event was a success.

RHOA fans were excited to visit the She By Sheree website to order clothes after the season finale aired. However, it didn’t take long for things to go left. The website crashed. Plus, people started to see some of the outfits being sold for a lot less at places like Shein and Amazon. And the only difference is those clothes lacked the She By Sheree logo. The prices for Sheree’s clothes were marked much higher though. So backlash began to pour in on social media.

Is Sheree Whitfield being held to a higher standard?

Sheree responded to the backlash in an interview with Gibson Johns for Yahoo.

She said, “I’ve gotten a good production management. They came up with the idea to maybe incorporate some other pieces. You know, a few other pieces with my custom pieces that offer different price points for different people. And everybody won’t…like I’m in a crop top right now. Everybody can’t…everybody won’t wear a crop top. So incorporating other merch into the line.”

Sheree added, “I’m not designing everything. I don’t design hats, you know, things like that. So all I can say is apparently Shein or Shien or whatever, they shop at the same production…it’s a private label. But shame on them for selling anything that you sell to Fashion Nova or Shein. You shouldn’t sell to anybody else.”

Gibson clarified, “The difference is that you have your own logo on that…exactly.”

And Sheree just feels like she’s being held to a higher standard, “This isn’t the first time that this has been done. I don’t understand why people hold me to a different degree than everyone else. And there are the online boutiques, a lot of these stores you go to…a lot of designers…it’s called private label. They’re not necessarily designing every garment in their line. And some are not designing any of them.”

  1. They stay wanting black consumers to have low expectations while we support black business owners. Sheree is saying she’s being held to some high and unfair standard when she’s marking up her clothes to nearly $200 when those same clothes can be purchased on Shein and Amazon, etc. for like $40. If you’re going to have Lululemon pricing, the quality has to match. These reality stars need to stop assuming that all it takes is a little fame to be successful at running a business. That’s so far from the truth it’s laughable.
