Allegedly the shoes she purchased had no suede sole, the logo was off, etc. hinting at them being fake. Since Frankel has praised T.J. Maxx in the past, she was furious to find out she fell victim to a fraudulent designer purchase.

Here’s what some people had to say in the comment section of the above Instagram post:

As mentioned in this TikTok video, Frankel was allegedly duped into purchasing fake Manolos from T.J. Maxx.

Frankel purchased a pair of -what she thought- were real Manolo heels from T.J. Maxx. Since she had purchased designer items from the store before, she had no reason to think they weren’t the real deal. However, when someone (@thesavoiedaily) pointed out the flaws in her latest purchase claiming they are actually fakes, Frankel took to TikTok to share the news. She has since gone viral online for sharing her story as well as news of other alleged fraudulent returns that have supposedly taken place at T.J. Maxx.

In the above video, Frankel claims that it’s not up to the cashiers to be authenticators but she warns not to buy luxury items from T.J. Maxx after her fake fiasco. She also shows all of her previous T.J. Maxx designer purchases and how she would’ve never thought that she would be purchasing a fake item.


The FAUXNOLO deepbdive persists… and now i’m doing man in the store interviews. Also going to take all my TH items to authenticate…. @T.J.Maxx @Saks Fifth Avenue @Manolo Blahnik

In the above recent update TikTok video, Frankel can be seen looking at a pair of real Manolos in Saks Fifth Avenue. She compares the ones in store to the ones she purchased that are at her home, in which she claims the colours seem to be off. She can also be seen debating which colour to bring home to do a side-by-side comparison. In the video, one of the store associates states that the buckle on Frankel’s original T.J. Maxx pair was a dead giveaway to being fake.

Hopefully, we’ll see an in-depth side-by-side comparison of the shoes in Frankel’s next video!
