Maybe it was the premise, maybe it was the fact that British ladies do not like being ‘advised’ what they should wear by a person that is not that familiar to them, maybe it was the extortionate prices, or maybe it was that no one here gives two hoots who Kim Kardashian is. Whatever the reason, ShoeDazzle has failed, the website that Kim endorsed and supposedly recommended products, each month, to members who signed up for her fabulous advice. We either did not want her advice or deemed that we could choose shoes, accessories and handbags ourselves. This does not bode well for our Cheryl Cole, who at the moment is the face of StylistPicks, another one of those websites where we rely on celebrities to help us choose what we should be wearing. Mind you, Cheryl is a national treasure so let’s hope her site has more success. Anyway, where there’s a closure there’s a bargain to be had so don’t let me hold you up anymore. Here are some of the best buys on ShoeDazzle. Pity they weren’t these prices at the start!
