Shopping Channel Shows

I believe QVC has gone off the rails.  I was watching an electric slicer/chopper the other night.  Two prices were on the screen  The black was about $36, and colors were about $54.  Have they ever done that before?

The ridiculously, overpriced, ugly cascading flowering necklace ($219 ) sold out. SMH.

Comment on her FB post under the pic from a male:

Hi cute Lisa so nice you brest nice chest and all body my friend.

The Douchess leaves this stupid comment up, but she deletes the posts when someone criticizes her. She's an effing IDIOT.

I think she posts "sold out" 24 hours after taking orders from her tribe - then she submits the order to her Chinese vendor who digs around in his back room to produce the junk a few weeks later.  Deceiving to say "sold out" - it's just her usual hurry, hurry to give me your $$$$ for pure garbage.

Yes, they have.  I have seen it a few times during fashion shows. Once, it was a Dooney purse that came in a few shades/tones/colorways. 

They never said it plainly but it was the remnants of two different orders they were trying to off.

And no way would QVC leave a dime on the table. They could have priced all of them the same but we know better.

Do some of you my age remember the K-tel record collection commercials and ads of that type?  I learned that they would run the ad a few months,  then submit an order to the vinyl pressing plant for the # of orders.....no need to stock inventory. ...that's why they said wait 6-8 weeks for delivery!

And that's a 3rd thing I learned today from this forum!

I remember the "not sold in stores" hype and knew that if I waited a good 6-12 months, Caldor, Zayres, Two Guys or Bradlees would have it! Although the songs were horribly "unpopular" by then...

Good for you, Stacey and also agree about the design - and both of those colors look great.  This is very tempting...

I hope you are not expecting a bout of diarrhea?

LOL.  Nope, I just have a thing about being well stocked with TP.  I have always had this obsession, even as a kid.  My Dad would get sooo aggravated with me when I'd point out that we were "almost out" and there were several rolls left.

🔹🔹🔹🔹

I watched a few minutes of Gomer and Officer Jayne this morning.  OJ couldn't rein Gomer in.  G kept raving about some jeggings while they were shilling a blouse.  OJ informed her, "We're not presenting that now" but Gomer went on and on.  Finally, they put the graphic up for those damned jeggings but the Officer said, "My producer tells me there are only a few pair left".

Gomer then went back to the blouse and said, "I pintucked the mess out of this!"  Wrong, Gomer!  Those are gathers, not pintucks, you mush mouthed weirdo.

Gomer suddenly ran off stage to try and find a sweater to tie around her waist because "This look really works with my jeggings".

It was totally out of control.  *click*

The Today's Special on HSN intrigued me so I did some looking.  It's only $20 bucksh so what the hell.  Well~~~

  • The battery compartment is hard to open.
  • The handle is too short for a good back scrubbing.  
  • It's not waterproof or water resistant.
  • It's OK for shower use.
  • It's not OK for tub use.

Pass.

i had bought just the face one after 3 months it stopped working i thought maybe the battery died opened it up to see the whole inards rusted. No one said it wasn't waterproof. You would think it was cause you use it to wash with. You don't use it dry lesson learned

Eventually, the tattoos turn blue.  I will bet she could look into getting the lip line re-done with flesh colored ink.

Only ones that turn a deep blue is the black lines, and that's because you can't hold the red color. Some  people are allergic to reds and yellows and whites so they leech out. I fortunately hold all colors so all my tattoos are as vibrant as the day i got them, and I am almost 60

I wondered why!  Can you go over a darker color with a flesh tone?

I think a heavy duty concealer around the lips might work but of course, just like lipstick, you will talk and eat it off eventually.

you cant go lighter over a darker color it would only highlight it you can go over a lighter color with a darker. She is lucky in a way to tattoo it brown, but as we age our lips lose their color ergo the dark lip line stands out more.

Regarding the use of black clothing in retail, just my two cents.  Having worked for a total of 6 years (from the time I turned 18 until two years after college) at a very large department store cosmetics counter, we wore the mandatory uniform of black skirt and white shirt.  The lines I sold (Clinique, Florie Roberts, Ralph Lauren- yes, he had his own cosmetics line in the 80's) dictated this "uniform".  They didn't care what the black bottom and white top looked like, as long as it was pure white and pure black - no other color allowed, no small little print allowed.  And black shoes.  Pumps, no toe showing allowed, no flats allowed, had to be at least an almost 3" heel.  Of course, Clinique demanded the clinical looking doctor's coat, as well!  

I was a rebel and I questioned it all.the.time.  Finally, I got an answer that somewhat made sense and it's all about marketing and merchandising.  Black and white doesn't scream at people or take their attention away from the product itself.  Those rows and rows of product on a cosmetic counter are there to be seen - you, as a representative of that line, were not there to be seen! -  and the marketing of these products and their placement on these counters, at least at the time, was thoughtfully and meticulously planned out in order to make people buy.  Clinique's quiet, pale green packaging would look somewhat harsh against the backdrop of a person wearing a Lily Pulitzer shift dress!    

All of this may be out the window now - I haven't really shopped for cosmetics in an actual department store for ages, except for maybe Nordstrom.  But I do notice that people who work at Ulta seem to follow this "uniform" and I believe Nordstrom cosmetic people still do the black and white uniform, too.

Exactly.  You dress for the setting.

Being in a department store is different than a high-tech television studio.

David and Jane's hair is a great example of how black "absorbs".  In real life, their hair might look a bit more real.  On camera, it takes on a helmet-like look ~

say it with me now~~

because of the lighting.

That's why Jill looks the way she does.

This could be, but I think it's more about the limitations of the web platform she's using.  There's probably only one way she can stop taking advance orders and that's to push the button on her website that makes the product  "sold out".

Personally, I like that style/shape better.  I like the horizontal shapes.  If it had a built in wallet in that front pocket, I might buy it.  The lugs are pretty casual looking to me and not being someone who likes changing out bags, I prefer the Tignanello brand because they can look dressier and provide that organization at the same time.

I was just thinking but for all the pockets and slots in the TSV, when I watched a presentation, it looked like it would be hard to get into the bag.

Thank goodness she doesn't have a closet show - have you seen some of her get-ups lately?

I think she is a sweet person, too.  But she's been off lately.  Some of us here have wondered if something is physically wrong with her.  At one point, she posted something about taking on a new role....but that doesn't seem to have materialized, unless this confused, haphazardly dressed person is that new role!  It can be tough to watch, sometimes, at least for me, because I remember her being so much better and not as fumbling as she is now.

@leFay - you are not the only one learning new things today.  Thanks @Chrisb,  for the info on tattoos. I knew none of that before today.

Unlike the Rinna monster, I think there just might be a real human being deep down inside CZJ.  She seemed genuinely touched by the Elf's adoration during her last visit and the moment she had talking about her home country seemed real to me. too.  Those incidents may be few and far between, but at least they are there.

@JohnnyStar5 - welcome to our snarky little playground.  So happy you found us!

I don't know how far back you read, but some of us are a little worried about Nancy H.  Lately she seems to be really struggling and instead of getting more comfy with the camera, she seems to be getting steadily worse.  Whether it is meno kicking her butt or, I sincerely hope not, her cancer is getting active again, something is clearly wrong.  I hope it resolves itself, because she does seem like a very nice person, and I am always rooting for a fellow Hoosier.

Thanks for the welcome Denver and everyone else who greeted me...snark got me nailed on the Q board, as I believe it takes an IQ to understand,  which the mods there have not.

Sorry to read this about Nancy, as she has been a favorite since I started watching the Q....there is clearly a host caste system there which defies my logic.

I was referring to the hyphen.  There is no need for it.  Catherine is her first name and Zeta is her middle name.

Her last name is not Zeta-Jones, it's just Jones.

It may be "working for her" but the hyphen is inaccurate and misleading.

It makes no sense.  For example ~

Mary Beth-Roe

Ummm, no.  Just Mary Beth Roe is fine.  No hyphen needed.

I agree, Puddy. Until I read about it on this forum, I didn't know Zeta was her middle name. I assumed it was either her maiden name or one of her parents' names. It does sound silly and pretentious to use the hyphen with a middle and last name. However, it's her name, her choice, I guess. (Just look at all the young people's names today that are broken up with unpronounceable apostrophes.)

I can't think of another celebrity who does this. Closest I can come is a celeb who hyphenated his first and middle names, Jan-Michael Vincent.

CZJ has a distinctive name, with Zeta, and she could get by just fine without the hyphen. There are other actresses who use their middle names without hyphens, such as Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Men too: Tommy Lee Jones, Neil Patrick Harris.

That's the thing. She dresses like she's going to a kid's school play. Wearing black is okay, but you have to add some color or contrast to make the look interesting.

IMO, there's nothing more stupid-looking, boring and monotonous than a flock of women at social gathering all dressed in their little black dresses and their black heels. They look like escapees from a funeral home. YMMV

Oh, Carolyn, not that top with that jacket!

Since I really liked these shoes and I've had good experience with Clark's - their size 11's fit me well, I started doing a bit of research on the interweb.  No luck on Zappo's, DSW, Belk or Amazon.  Didn't see them on Macy's site so I called the local Macy's, no luck, they didn't carry them.  The local specialty shoe store did have them, size 11, but they wanted $110.  Just when I was ready to give up, I went to a site of a store called Elder Beerman. (My mom used to shop there about 20 years ago) I thought they'd gone out of business, but it looks like they do have a few stores left in Ohio.  They had the shoes and there they were a size 11! To make the deal even better, they had one day coupon for "friends and family" + another one for free standard shipping.  (I'm in no rush, waiting another week was fine with me).  Including sales tax, the shoes were $68.38! 

@zoemom good for you! I'm glad you are getting the shoes you wanted and QVC isn't getting your sale!

The second thing I learned this morning is that La Douche actually has a name for her company... No really, I had no clue... I thought it was just a site named after her... Although in my defense, I never really READ anything on her site...

And I call bullshit in all her earlier stalker claims because she uses her actual address in the online public information for the company. You DON'T DO that if you're worried about your personal security. You use a PO Box number or a public mail drop address; of course then she'd have to pay to use them, and we know how little she likes to do that.

Doris definitely has to ease up on the Botox - yes, the mouth area is still mobile but her lips look fuller than before - collagen injections, perhaps?  And I'm a big fan of her Doll 10 Nude Lip Wardrobe with Collagen Tri-Peptides (QVC Item # A275419).  The colors are very flattering (especially for us women of a certain age), moisturizing, and they wear pretty well.  Most of all, they make lips look fuller - no collagen injections necessary, IMO.
