I watched a bit of Chaz Dean's WEN stuff this afternoon.  I don't even know where to start.......he's always been a bit odd to me in both the looks department and demeanor.  Now, he's over the top.  Just plain weird.  I swear, he's like a Bubble Boy - can't do this, can't wear that, this gives him migraines, can't be in the sun.......on and on and on.  I get it and feel for him, but couldn't he try to be just a little bit normal?

I think that once people become wealthy, they can get more nitpicky, especially if they are celebrities who have an entourage of people stroking their egos.. The rest of us have to learn to live with a lot of crap.

Maybe Chaz Dean and the Unwashed One could be sent to a camp this summer. Some sort of bucolic place where they can be coaxed out of their eccentricities and back to a sense of renewed normalcy.

Arts, crafts, songs.  Whatever it takes. Hmm?

It's been an all day beauty day at QVC, yet Jane still has to get in her 2 hour namesake shoe shopping show.

I swear that QVC looks at their inventory and just gives her the ugliest shoes they have in their warehouse to sell in these two hours.

LOL, probably that's what they do. Jane is so enthusiastic that she will make her best effort to sell anything they give her.

Agree.  Once in awhile she gets some funky L’Artiste shoes that I like — others may find them ugly! 😁

I like the colorful shrug she is wearing.  Anyone know if it’s a Q item?

They'd better be clearing out the warehouse. There aren't any new shoes getting through the Suez Canal. 🤔

Has anyone noticed this about our friend Jane......She is CONSTANTLY adjusting whatever top/shirt she wears, she even pulls it down prior to sitting down on the couch.  It almost is a nervous tick, it is constant.  Next time she’s on, watch it.  It’s very odd

The ship is still blocking the canal. So all the other ships are waiting. The canal is used by about 10% of the world’s shipping. If you look at the very right, where the sand and water meet, you can see a digger. That ship is massive!

Maybe we’ll be seeing a lot more advanced ordering.

Absolutely! Everything is ill-fitting (i.e., too small) and therefore shows every lump and bump, which is why the constant tugging. Carolyn does it too, although not nearly as much as Jane.

It's amazing how sensitive world-wide shipping is to the slightest hiccup in the system. I think covid related stoppages led to many of the advance order items.

Yeah, each one of those shipping containers loaded on board are about the size of a semi trailer.  Makes one wonder wth happened.

Evergreen is the shipping line and Ever Given is the actual ship. Articles have flip-flopped the names. 
I’m really all in on this news for some reason. 🤷‍♀️

Yes. I worked in import-export for 20+ years. All of their ship names are Ever "something". Ever Glory, Ever Globe, etc. Those container ships really are huge. It was always frustrating trying to explain to customers or sales reps why, once the ship arrived, you couldn't get their order through Customs and delivered faster than all the other ones on the same ship. You don't really have much of a choice where your container is on the ship. I think you can request above deck or below deck but other than that no choice.

Thanks for the clarification! I would never have guessed the ship's real name was Ever Given, because it didn't make any sense. Just looked the Evergreen Marine Company up on Wikipedia, and learned that they name their cargo ships Ever-[something]. For example, they have a new one named the Ever Fortune.

Anyway, this was a terrible accident in terms of international commerce.  I didn't realize how important the canal is, accounting for 30% of daily container ship traffic globally. The Suez Canal is used for transporting oil as well as merchandise, so gas prices might go up temporarily, according to news reports.

*sigh* Another shipping delay excuse for QVC.

I'm serious when I say that I have averaged maybe 5 minutes of viewing per month over the past year or so.  I'm just not interested in the theater, nor the personalities involved.  If I think that QVC may have a product I'm looking for (that itself is becoming a rare event), I will check the website.

I was never really a watcher of HSN or the other also-rans, so yeah, I'm pretty much out.

I kind of love the Miz Mooz TSV sandal, because it is different in a funky but not (to me) “matronly” sandal.  Just not sure I’d get much  use out of it.  Also,  the ankle strap, which cuts off the leg line.  Will ponder.

I have a Miz Mooz bootie, and the leather is so soft.

They are cute, but ankle straps drive me crazy. I’ve tried but I just can’t wear them. Sigh. 🙁

I'm willing to wear ankle strap shoes because they keep the shoes on my feet! I have trouble getting a good fit because by the time I find a shoe that doesn't pinch my toes, the heel is too loose. Lots of problems with heel slippage; I am always having to put those adhesive heel pads in the backs of my shoes. The ankle strap keeps me from walking out of the shoe.

That is a problem. I remember shoe shopping with my mom, she had a quad heel. This was pre- internet, and I remember being surrounded by shoe boxes, and it seemed like we were in the store for hours. I’m grateful for my easy to find and fit 9.5 B’s.

I think it’s funny they are spray painting everything blue with the TSV. I guess it’s the only color that shows up bright enough on screen. It’s not a bad price ($99.98) but after using it once I’d probably never use it again. OMG! I just realized Shawn’s glasses & painters vest are blue, too. Maybe, they’ll switch it up later today & use the color red.

It’s Spring on the Q today. Perfect timing since it was 80 degrees in the West Chester area yesterday. It’s in the 70’s today. They usually have outdoor rugs so I will have to what they show today & what price. I have a Lowe’s literally 2 minutes from me so I’ve been shopping up a storm there.

I turned it on since the weather has me thinking of working in the garden. Saw some stupid adjustable stool and a fake boxwood sphere and turned it right off again.

Edit: Turned it on again now and they are selling a Rose of Sharon for $85 that I could get at the local garden center for maybe $35. And my local garden center is fairly expensive.

Everything usually looks good and gives you great ideas but is sooooooo overpriced. That said, I was just at Target (I really want to spend today, don’t I?) and, everything was already picked over. The outdoor stuff was very bare. I was kind of shocked. I guess people went out earlier this year since they feel better about their surroundings this spring/summer than last year which didn’t  exist.

I venture a guess that QVC is going to go down in flames still pushing Logo until its final show hits the air!

In other TSV news, Jiggly Jill's version of the Comfy is a TSV, too.  This is that one she was pushing on Instagram back in the Fall.  Guess it didn't sell very well? 

It's spring.......soon to be summer.......why now?  This should have been a TSV months ago if it wasn't already - sorry, I don't pay too much attention to their clothing, so I don't know if it's already been one or not.

I didn't see the Logo TSV but I did see Gili Jill and the jumpsuit which was actually very nice and a great clearance price. ( I think it was like $32 or something like that . Definitely under 40). Anyway, she was wearing the jumpsuit in the red print,,,,,,,, and then took the furry blanket bathrobe looking jacket ( in rose) , put it on and was saying how great it was. 

the jumpsuit was like an orange red, and flowing ( as I said- it was very nice). but then put on this sweatshirt looking thing. I believe it looks like she done lost it. Big Time!

"Mature" packs? Meaning., they've been siting around in the warehouse until they were about to disintegrate from old age? 😄

And do these packs really come with a "built-in customer base"? If there were that many customers who liked those products, they wouldn't have to be dumped onto a pallet and sold cheap.

Thanks for the factoid. I always thought the categories were called "misses" and "junior." Guess I'm out of date on fashion industry terminology, or else I never had it straight to begin with.

Speaking of juniors, remember when QVC was selling a cropped sweatshirt the other day, and everybody was commenting how silly it looked on Jackie? I saw a cropped sweatshirt today at Target -- in the little girls' department! That's who should wear it, young girls and teens. It looks wrong on adult women.

Don't ask how I know this, but if you get on Wally World's website and do a search for women's pedal pushers nearly all of the results are Q and HSN brands being sold by third-party vendors.

To piggyback on the thought........why do we need underpants/ bra models?  I think it’s totally unnecessary and find it irritating that they have the models standing there in their Breezies
