Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

Recommended Posts

It feels like Jill is trying to teach Iz and Sam to be ready to be recorded at any time. That's not healthy.

It's possible that she really does believe that she, Derick and the kids will eventually return to the show. The leghumpers who follow Jill and Derick on Instagram and post on the Duggar FB page are very vocal about how much they miss seeing the Dillards on TV and how evil TLC was to fire them. The Duggars live in an echo chamber which constantly reinforces their belief that they are special and beloved. Jill may think that these fans are much more numerous than they really are and that there actually is a groundswell of viewer support out there that will force TLC to bring them back.

If Jill is resentful that Derick's actions forced them off the show, he may be placating her and reinforcing this delusion with a big dose of "God is on our side, the righteous will always win in the end" rhetoric.

With regard to Jill's pics of the clothing. I give her props for wearing jeans or jeggings, whatever. Pants at least.

People comment all the time about this grandchild and that grandchild looking like JB, and I really don't see it. In this picture, though, poor Sam looks EXACTLY like grandpa (IMO). 

ODG. You are absolutely right and now I can’t unsee it.

^^Those are good points. With rare exceptions, my exposure to the Duggars is whatever I see here on PTV, or via a link I found here on PTV. I don't hang out with them, but there IS a fan base for these people, including Jill and Dillweed. 

This is also a good reminder that H. L. Mencken was on to something when he wrote:

And she couldn't have ironed it?

Also, what's up with those sleeves? Maybe she's only wearing it to church then changing, but I can't imagine trying to eat while wearing that without dragging the sleeves through cream of glop. God forbid she tries to actually cook while wearing it - she'd set herself on fire!

She is telling us the wind is blowing the back of her shirt so we don’t ask if she is pregnant (because it is hanging funny). Well played Jill. That actually shows awareness.  Or, like a Duggar she is lying

A lot of modern churches have a come-as-you-are dress code. I think it’s getting kind of unusual to get dressed up for church.

The sleeves on that shirt are too long on Jill and should be altered. The cuffs pass her wrists by quite a bit. But, since she apparently doesn’t know how to iron, alterations are probably foreign to her. 

I’ll bet Jinger could make that shirt work with some of her styling magic, though!  The house

It makes me wonder if that shirt was fairly wrinkled when she bought it.  Those clothes from China usually come heavily packaged and need to be steamed before being displayed on racks in the store.  I used to work steaming endless boxes of clothes at a big department store for just one ladies department and every shipment took hours.   I can't see Famy finding that kind of work too glamorous, so she either skips it or hired someone to do it.

I look at that shirt and all I can think is "But, I don't want to be a pirate!"  Of course Duggars do enjoy pirate play, so maybe she is just belatedly joining in on the pirate "fun" that Derick and Izzy were having.

My church has one casual Sunday each month where you can wear jeans, although they wouldn’t turn you away if you wore them any other time.  Jeans are a lot nicer than they used to be.  I always understood “come as you are” to be about your spiritual condition as well as your physical appearance.  On one hand, I do believe you should put your best foot forward for God, or at least put effort into your appearance. OTOH, it is nice to comfy in jeans and a nice sweater during winter months. Out sanctuary is usually meat locker cold!

I can’t fault Jill for the jeans but like everyone else I could slap her for not properly ironing.  Magic Sizing is like $2 and a good iron is worth it’s weight in gold.

I wish someone would introduce Jill to jewel tones. That shirt is meh to me, but if it were eggplant, claret, navy, dark green, etc. I think she would have looked very nice.

At least Jill wasn't wearing some bagged-out shapeless knit top that somebody bought at Goodwill ten years ago.

I agree, the color of that shirt does nothing good for her. Also the sleeves are too long, although maybe she could adjust the cuffs somehow to not fall halfway down her hands. IMO that look is annoying AF. (See, for example, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, whose shirt cuffs I always itched to fasten or roll up.)

I think Jill mentioned the wind blowing because there's a clump of fabric you can see at the bottom of the shirt in that photo, behind her right hand, which I think was blown there by the wind. And about the ironing. I think someone, either at Amy's store or at Jill's house, did iron or steam the packing wrinkles out of that shirt. The wrinkles on display in that photo look like what you get from wearing the shirt - sitting in it, using your arms, etc. There are pleats running down from the shoulders, and that area doesn't look all wrinkly. 

What that tells me is that it's cr*p fabric that I wouldn't enjoy wearing. You can put it on all nice and fresh and an hour later you look like you wore it alligator wrestling and then while taking a restorative nap. In stores, I always grab the sleeve of a garment and crunch it up in my fist, really tight, then let it go. If it shows wrinkles, I know what I'm in for.  I usually pass on it but if I'm in love with the style I might buy it but at least I know what to expect. (Yes, I know. 100% linen is notorious for wrinkling like crazy but somehow I doubt Jill's wearing anything that upscale. Just saying.)

Poor Jill is pretty clueless and IMO is just one of those people without much innate fashion sense. Nothing wrong with that, but in her case I think she hasn't had anyone to really show her the way. Maybe she's slowly getting the idea that she could benefit from fashion advice. Too bad if it's from Famy.

I think Jilly was trying to wear the outfit how the model wore it. This just shows how different the clothing looks in person. Jill's top looks cheap quality.

Of course famy gave Jill several choices, and she loves the frumpiest, most shapeless, most colorless of them all. That black dress that Famy sent her would be great to wear to church, or even that navy shirt with flowers. I wonder why in the world famy sent her this. Maybe she just went through the shop looking for "modest" items that she knew would fit Jill's dress code. 

I attend a church that is super formal. My dad, and most men, wears a suit and tie every week. Women always wear dresses, except possibly when it's really cold or snowy. Then, dress pants are acceptable, or a skirt with leggings. One time I wore a pair of nice pink capris, and I felt like they were questionable. Nobody would ever consider wearing jeans, though people wear them to church functions like choir practice, fellowship meals, bible studies, etc. I've always found it so odd that the duggars are basically the opposite of this in every way. Their religion insists they wear skirts, but then they wear those crappy jean skirts to worship in. They follow the rules as informally as they possibly can, which kind of seems irreverent in a house of worship to me. They don't put any more effort into worship than they do in everyday life. Yet, my church doesn't care whatsoever what we wearing outside of church, but people take it up several notches to attend worship. Plus, I've never understood why Michelle thinks they all look so ladylike. Someone like lauren dresses in a ladylike way IMO, and sometimes Jinger and jana. I've never understood how a frumpy oversized t-shirt and denim skirt is the epitome of feminine!

Maybe don't buy clothes that will wrinkle easily if you're not going to iron, Jill.

My mother used one of these!  She ironed a lot when I was growing up.  Mom had the attitude that my sister and I couldn't do it as well as she did, so we escaped ironing and a lot of household chores that one of my good friends was expected to do.  

Yes, beige is her favorite color in recipes, so it seems natural for her to wear it.  At least it doesn't have obvious holes, like the t-shirt Dillweed once wore, that looked like the armpits had rotted out.

We had one of these. Green bottle too. It was so awesome when irons started having sprayers. 

I own an iron but I’m all knits all the time these days. Except jeans. My iron gathers dust and I’m not sorry.

The unfortunate blouse would be a pain to iron because of its gathered design and cheap synthetic fabric. The sleeves are much too long to look good or be practical. The sad thing is that Jill posted this photo showcasing the shirt without realizing what a fail it all is. 

That said, it's sold out on the store's website. Maybe Jilly Dilly is an influencer after all.

I am old, too.  My mom had one of these sprinkler caps inserted into a green 7-up bottle; I hadn't thought of it in decades.  My iron is semi-retired.  This looks like one of those horrid shirts that when you iron the back after you iron the front you hold it up only to realize the front has wrinkled again.   I had the cutest skirt that was cotton with a lot of rick-rack; it was impossible to keep it nicely ironed so I donated it, but kept the adorable blouse that came with it. 

As to that blouse---Jill, it doesn't belong in your color wheel.   If you have to wear it, get some bright earrings and a necklace or scarf.  Keep that color away from your face.

For years I liked to wear white blouses; ivory looks awful with my skin tone.   Then it seemed like overnight, I aged.  Now white washes me out something awful unless I add a scarf or a really colorful necklace and earrings.

The cuffs could be fixed by simply moving the button over a tad.  Jana could do that in about 5 minutes.  Jill?  Never. 

More likely Amy only ordered 3 shirts, 1 each of small, medium & large.    The one Jill is wearing looks a size too large.  And I don't think that's a crinkle gauze fabric with cotton in it, looks like a pure poly.  But the kind you cannot get wrinkles out of, no matter how much steam you use. 

I think we've all had those poly shower curtains that NOTHING could get the creases out of.

I agree. I have some cotton and cotton-blend crinkle fabric shirts. They don't look like the fabric in Jill's shirt. Mine aren't a lightweight "gauze" but more of a normal shirt weight. The fabric has an overall texture, but it doesn't get creases from sitting etc., when worn. (They weren't cheapo's to start with although I'm big on shopping sales and even found one of them at Goodwill, lol.) However I don't do broomstick skirts. Never have,  never will. Just saying.

I've looked through this forum this morning. Jill may not be getting any more TLC cash, but I think her silly shirt has drawn about as much comment as last night's season premiere episode of the show she's no longer on. #notorietyisthebestrevenge

At $28, this blouse was on the low end of the store's blouse selection, and Amy made some money on the markup. The fabric would melt before those wrinkles ironed out. 

The shirt fits Jill across the bust and more or less in the shoulders. The sleeves are designed for someone much taller. It would probably fit Dereck, and the color suits his dour personality.

I bought my MIL (she lives in a nursing home) gorgeous yellow roses from Target, for $19.99.  I bet it costs way more having flowers delivered.  All grocery stores sell lovely, affordable flowers.  And Derick doesn't even work!

Why is there a smiley face in the middle of Derick's note? 

Also, blah. I'd be vaugely disappointed if my (currently nonexistent) husband got me red roses for Valentine's. I'd appreciate the flowers, but what a totally expected, basic gesture. (And I'm as basic add they come. Pumpkin spice and leggings all the way.) At least put some imagination into it, though maybe Jill looooves red roses.
