Cheryl Cole Vs Errm...QVC?
Geordie Cheryl, the cheeky little mite, tweeted pictures today of a pair of wedges from her new shoe collection from her Spring/Summer 2012 range - supposedly without the knowledge or consent from her collaborators Stylist Pick (...yeah right, great PR - we're not that silly!)
Cheryl tweeted" "Ok - so no one is in the office @stylistpick and I'm not sure I'm allowed to do this but I can't help myself...LOOK AT THESE beauties I have coming for the S/S collection."
After the great success of the A/W Stylistpick collab (aside a few complaints about heel tips falling off & stitching coming undone...meh!) it was only a matter of time before we became acquainted with a new summery range from the Girls Aloud singer and the members only subscription website.
Trouble is - I'm not sure if I like them??
It would be hard to tell the cork sole sling back wedges apart from similar pairs found stuffed in the shelves of Primark most summers. The only thing that differentiates them is the fact Cole's ankle strap wedges would sport suede uppers.
The leather lace tassel detail above the peep toe is also reminiscent of home shopping channel favourites 'Pavers shoes' signature look. A comfort brand aimed at - shall we say - the more mature lady. I'm also not sure Cheryls wedges will warrant the likely hefty price tag. Which as yet unknown.
Luckily colleagues at Stylist Pick never left Cole alone for too long, conveniently turning up in the offices in time to quickly release this statement soon after naughty Cheryl broke the embargo: "We weren't planning a sneak peak of the collection, but we are really pleased that Cheryl, like us, is so excited about it and the really positive response from her fans."
So sorry Cheryl pet, if this is a taster of what to expect from the rest of the Spring/Summer collection - I just don't think they'll be 'Reet up me street'.
What do you think? Yey or Neyy??
