By No Means Slutty

I LOVE the text at Stylebop.com, a high-end shopping site based in Germany.   Maybe it’s the person who does the English translation, or maybe it’s silly in German too.   There is always something to delight. For example:

no worries, this black leather top looks luxurious, expensive and noble and by no means cheap or slutty

At $965, I should hope not!

    I wonder if you still look noble when you add the rhinestone sandals?

  2. carla says:

    no, unfortunately it says the exact same thing in german…

  3. I’d rather look cheap than noble

  4. Sheri says:

    Unfortunately it’s still darned unattractive.

  5. Cricket9 says:

    If you are going for a noble, and not at all slutty dominatrix look it would be perfect. Wear with boots, a whip, and possibly nothing else.

  6. I don’t think I’d be trying to channel either of those when I jump into dominatrix leather tee….

    Just found your comment on my post about Advanced Style. And you’re HILARIOUS. Finally a fashion blogger that cracks me up!.xxxx

  7. Madeline says:

    Perfect! I was just looking for something that would be a fit for many party events but without being cheap or slutty!

    Nice save, SW!

  8. Emily Bleak says:

    I thought “no worries” was something people stopped saying in 1998.

    (…except for my dad, who clings to old slang like a security blanket.)

  9. E says:

    I like the way they tell you to wear it with pants or a skirt.
    Bless.

  10. P says:

    I think I’m going to start putting ‘by no means cheap or slutty’ as part of my personal description in my CV, just to preempt whatever the interviewer might think upon my arrival.

  11. Ann says:

    “Return for free if it doesn’t fit” – Can I return for free if I suddenly come to my senses after buying that godawful garment?

  12. Stella Mayfair says:

    yeah, count on us germans for “by no means cheap or slutty” sales copy anytime 🙂

    i never had a look at the shopbop site before, but now i’m going to check it out, if only for the copywriting.

  13. Miss Janey says:

    “Noble”. A nice gift, then, for royalty and the like.

  14. Mmm I’ll go for cheap and slutty

  15. bella says:

    youre a fucking loser you know that
    your website is so cringe i cant believe it.

  16. RLC says:

    bella must have paid the $965 for that top.

  17. Madeline says:

    Bella clearly disagreed with the cheap and slutty part after paying $965 for it.

    I agree, that is “so cringe”.

    But, hey! No worries, you can return for free!

  18. Cricket9 says:

    Bella’s command of English language is “so cringe”.

  19. HelOnWheels says:

    Maybe after Bella returns that top she can buy some lessons to improve her English. And if there’s anything left over she can put a down payment on a sense of humor.

    Oh, and Bella, stop posting with that name, you’re sullying it!! That’s my sister’s name and you don’t deserve to use it.

  20. JK says:

    I’m not really very knowlegeable about too much sartorial stuff. I think I know what “not appearing “slutty looking” means – but I do have a question. And my old girlfriend (actually ‘deceased’ back in ’02 so that doesn’t mean what you might infer HelOnWheels) anyway, she made me watch Russell Crowe and that Gladiator movie.

    Admittedly, I wasn’t paying too much attention to the footwear but historically speaking you understand – was there such a thing as “Gladiator Booties?”

    Which I take to mean footwear – but now I’m questioning.

  21. Queen Zelda says:

    Bella’s such an entry level troll compared to your regulars Sister Wolf! Phhft… Amateur!

  22. Sister Wolf says:

    P – Hahahahahahaha! I’m thinking of using it for my next tattoo.

    Queen Zelda – Yes, wtf, Bella! step up your game if you want to comment here. (but in Bella’s defense, she’s left a bunch of comments in defense of Gala Darling that demand I show my fat ugly head or something)

  23. ‘So cringe’…that’s a new one. I had forgotten how the cool kids shorten words to the limits of their capability to sound cool.
    Speaking of…I imagine you’ve stopped doing Comments for Jane now, but her use of the word ‘barfy’ in this post made my toes curl…http://seaofshoes.typepad.com/sea_of_shoes/2010/09/somewhere-over-the-rainbow.html

  24. sam says:

    what about your post rattled bella’s cage so?
    I just don’t get it….

  25. Marky says:

    Oh, Bella, you’re so cringe I can’t believe it. Now, back to pre-algebra, bitch.

  26. Good idea ref CV, P.

    I think I might put as my resume – I don’t buy clothes at over inflate prices which probably puts me in the cheap and slutty category. Further, this reticence to pay $985 for a leather top I can buy for £50 makes me personality type, ‘so cringe’.

  27. jimbo says:

    I think, Bella is just in agreement with how embarrassing this website is. Most be full of old sluts from the 70s learning how to use the internet.
    GOOD ENGLISH THOUGH! clever people.

  28. jimbo says:

    *MUST BE. OH NO. you’re all going to bully me now for my terrible SPELLING. and post pictures of me on the internet and laugh at my horrible blog.

  29. Jimbo – no we won’t bother because you can do that all your own.

  30. P says:

    Maybe the strapline for this blog could even be changed to ‘GODAMMIT, I’M MAD! …but by no means cheap or slutty.’

  31. SW – forgive me I’m a catchin’ poor sentence construction. Why I’s even dropping my ‘on’s’

  32. Sister Wolf says:

    P – You know, I think I may actually be a tiny bit slutty.
