Damn, east atlanta at the feet of college students everywhere.

You Look Awfully Familiar of the Day: Tori LaConsay says H&M lifted a piece she did as a “love letter” to the East Atlanta Village that’s been on display on the main thoroughfare since December 2008.
H&M, which has a strikingly similar-looking “you look nice today” and heart glyph for sale on doormats and guest towels, initially claimed it was definitely not influenced by LaConsay’s work, but is now said to be “looking into the situation” (likely spurred into action by the thousands of negative comments left on their Facebook page by people who feel as LaConsay does).
What say you? Plagiarism or pure coincidence?
