    Say Yes To The Dress

    I actually gasped when I saw that. It was gorgeous as is but I could see it in an ivory color way as a bridal gown. Just stunning. Hope the student creator designer continues to design such lovely pieces.

    Windy City Rehab

    It's possible the house is under contract and still hasn't closed for whatever reason (the buyer's stipulated X months until they take possession or sell their existing home, modifications they want made to the property, or issues that popped up during a thorough inspection that need to be addressed by Allison and Donovan, etc). Or it could be the usual real estate sites haven't gotten updated deed transfer info from the city/county clerk's office. I do appreciate that the show is pretty straight forward about overages, sale/no sale, and the like. I think they'll break even on this one or walk away with a very small profit.

    QVC

    It's a new and improved rayon like fiber that is made from wood pulp. It plays well with other fibers and allows manufacturers to create various blends easier than regular rayon. also depending on the fabrication (knit, woven, mechanical stretch, filament type, etc.) a Lyocell/Tencel garment can be machine washed without fear of funky rayon shrinkage and holds dyes very well. It's more expensive than regular rayon fabrics so the cost is higher but not Q level pricing. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyocell

    Can't believe I'm saying this but I like Kerstink's top. Of course I'd wear it with a black tank underneath and tailored black pants as a casual Friday type outfit.

    QVC

    About a month or so ago I saw Leah on with Isaac. She mentioned about his pants being designed to take into account different shapes and not just a oh this size is twice as large so we'll make everything twice as big and end up with 30" ankle openings. She said when she was larger she appreciated that . Anywhooo, Isaac asked what size she wears now and she said a 12. I was surprised because I thought she was smaller than that but it seemed like an honest without thinking about it type of reply.

    At least it doesn't have a cold shoulder...

    Say Yes To The Dress

    I adored Jamelha's attitude on the Canadian version (she was the first bride shown) . I'm paraphrasing here but it went something like, " I'm going to wear this dress to my wedding, birthday party, your kids' parties, Christmas, my kid's party .... if we get divorced I'll wear it to court." I found my soul sister!

    Evine: Be Good

    Evine is broadcasting from their new LA digs. Set is okay but a bit smaller than what they have in Minnesota. Every time I flipped through Heather Hall (I think it's her) keeps popping into the frame when the camera isn't on her. Very odd and annoying especially since Jennifer and the esthetician have it handled and Heather isn't adding anything useful to the presentation (no this just sold out or down to the last quantities or Betty Sue Lulu is calling in from the back office with a testimonial)

    I know! It was almost like watching the Say Yes that I fell in love with.

    Thanks for the info. A sparkly snarker endorsed product is always a sound buy.

    Product Reviews: After Sales

    Do you know the model number or type (duo clean, lift away, navigator, etc)? I've been eyeing the Shark vacuums for a while and think this is the year I take the plunge and step up the war on dust bunnies and kitty fur.

    Evine: Be Good

    Thanks. So much for visions of vendor/OAP side eye and snarking.

    Didn't Dimitri train under Adrian Arpel of Signature Club A?

    Isn't she from Minnesota? so get the company to send a freebie to a relative's house and have a family member film her using the snow thingy. Decent stunt to draw attention to the tsv.

    Bridezillas

    Do you mean Redneck Island? I think they're too young to have been on that show. Wasn't there a trashy knock off of party down south that didn't last a season? I agree they look familiar but I'm not sure where I've seen them before.
