The Poetry of Stylebop

I love these shoes, but not as much as the selling points, as dreamed up by Stylebop. The Agnes Deyn reference almost ruined them for me, but not quite. If   they were affordable, I would wear them with everything except for the hippie dresses and petticoats.

Stylebop sells beautiful stuff that you can’t always find online. For me, the attraction is the copy-writing. Where else would a “small 1cm wooden heel” be described in the same breath as “robust?”

Go to Stylebop and enjoy its wonderful malaprops and cockamamie styling advice!

    “Totally masculine” doesn’t do it for me, but I kind of want to roll around in that color.

  2. World class shoes but I don’t think I’ll be pairing them with petticoats!

    I’m with Wendy B.

    I have shoes just like the ones above, only lot quite so cool-looking around the heel, in maroon. I’d buy these in a snap if I could afford them. I admit to wearing mine with skirts of all kinds, though (some of which do look a bit petticoat-like, but I’m only a slob who hates stiletto heels and is a sucker for coloured suede).

    I lived in London a long time and am not sure i would pay $500 for the “london look”. Any way i doubt it is. It is suede, and it rains in london most of the year.
    this copy could be picked apart in so many ways! in what sense is Masculine opposed to stylish? and why do they assume blue is more stlish than black?
    Don’t get me wrong. those are kind of my ideal shoe. i comb the world for the ultimate blue suede shoes. (not the $500 ones sadly) But the description is just well, wack.
    and woo hoo agness deyn has them well then OF COURSE I will buy them.

    Love the colour, not so much the price; I would check Agynes’ (BTW, I hate creative spelling of names – i.e. Agynes, Gennifer, Brandee, etc) wardrobe first, because, you know, they may be just saying that she owns them! Main factor to consider, when buying shoes: are they owned by a “mega-model” ?

  7. Dru says:

    I still love them. They are colourful and do not have high heels, and that guarantees my wholehearted approval.
    That copy beside it, though, sounds like it was written by two separate people: maybe the website controllers or whoever couldn’t choose between the two sets of bullet points and just bunged everything in. Rather amused that they decided to describe the heel as ‘robust’ though. It’s a nice word, and should get used more outside of cooking.

  8. Dru says:

    The styling suggestions are appalling though, or maybe that is just my bone-deep prejudice against ‘hippie dresses’ speaking (peasant skirts still leave my eyeballs reeling).

  9. Ann says:

    I wish I could forget I saw the “Agynes Deyn” bullet point. The rest was laughable; that one made me wince. Nice shoes, though not $580 nice.

  10. TheShoeGirl says:

    Robust heel, huh? But 0″ outside height?

    It’s a Luxurious shoe AND a world class shoe AAAAND a classic men’s lace shoe all at once?
    Hmmm… that is robust.

  11. TheShoeGirl says:

    Oh and I like how it’s totally stylish (in color). Not in the shape, that’s total shit… but the color! Oh the color!

    This is annoying and I hate whoever wrote it.

  12. Very nice site! Love the product. As a fashion industry professional, I am always out looking for the latest trends, news, and basically anything related to fashion at all. It’s amazing how much related information you can find just by hitting the search button in google. I feel that anything you can wear needs to be both fashionable and functional at the same time. Having one without the other still works, but a product needs to have both to be truly great. I think this hits the mark on both accounts, but you should consider reducing the size of the photo at the top, it loaded pretty slow for me and I almost left just as it loaded. Anyways, I think no matter what you are looking for, whether it be basketball shoes,high heels,coats, or pants, you gotta have style. Thanks for the good read, I’ll put it on my RSS list if I can find the thing! Gotta go, keep your site updated a little more please, thanks.
