Vena Cava is calling out Alice+Olivia for allegedly copying a yellow floral print from their fall 2012 line. Our sister site Racked National caught the jab on the NY/LA-based brand's Instagram, which featured a side-by-side comparison of both designs and the following caption: "@alice_olivia Please stop being 'inspired' by our prints from last season. Get a library card." Ouch. Does this Insta-bickering sound familiar? [Racked Nat'l; Previously]
