The website Stylist Pick has been on my radar for a while, but not until today have I actually had a look... The website is still "busy building my personal showroom", but has informed me that I am "free and individual". Which, I must say, surprised me. I've always considered my taste in shoes to be quite classic. As I couldn't view my personal showroom, I thought I'd have a gander at the Cheryl Cole collection, which was released two days ago.

There has already been a lot of feedback on the blogosphere, and most of what I've read has been pretty positive. I, however, am not quite convinced...

I'm sorry Cheryl, I think you're very pretty and you've done exceedingly well to have gotten as far as you have done, but I just do not like any of these shoes. And considering how reasonable Stylist Pick shoes are usually, I think these are over-priced. I read that they were made in Italy, which is why they are more expensive than the rest of the website's merchandise, but I just don't think they're worth almost £80 and £120 respectively. 

I'd be interested to hear back about the quality of the shoes - if they are made well and with high-quality fabrics, then I would be more understanding about the pricing, but I do worry that they are only so highly priced because a celebrity was involved in the design process. If anyone purchases or is given these shoes, I'd love to hear some feedback.

I read one comment which did upset me, claiming that they were "very reasonably priced considering that they were designer shoes." I'm sorry, but NO. Being a celebrity does not make you qualified as a designer. As an opinion, I find it insulting to people who have made a career out of studying design to insinuate that all it takes to become a 'designer' is an ok voice and a brilliant PR team. 

So sorry Cheryl, but I won't be purchasing any of your collection. Although, to be fair, if Jimmy Choo released a Christmas album, I probably wouldn't buy it. 

What are your opinions on Cheryl Cole's collection for Stylist Pick? Are you, like me, dubious, or have you already purchased yourself a pair or two?



  1. I like 3 out of the 12 pairs. However I agree they are really expensive so I won't be purchasing any. Would be nice to ask for as a gift if you wanted a pair for christmas or something. I'm quite happy buying shoes from new Look though haha! xxx

  2. I am following you now via bloglovin.
