QVC

Recommended Posts

Julia Cearley, pronounced Carely, (as in I do not care for her) apparently is a mixologist and waited tables (which she mentioned incessantly,) thereby qualifying her to replace Stacey, who previously would have done an hour like this.

I guess there are fewer and fewer host options for an all day Cooking Show. I would rather have seen Kristine Zell, which says a lot about how I view Ms. Cearley.

I love all day cooking shows, or used to. Now freaking KERSTIN is on for a few hours?! Mary is wasted being DV’s Facebook minion, so she doesn’t get to host on her own...but Julia and Kerstin do. QVC is committing suicide right in front of us. (Also, is Mary Beth on vacation? I’m not a fan but would take her over many of the people on the schedule today. Ditto the normally ubiquitous JRT.)

I caught the final presentation of yesterday’s avionics TSV last night waiting for the cooking day to start, and it looked like every color and most sizes were fully in stock. Almost every size/color was green, maybe a handful of yellows around sizes 7ish. I didn’t see any reds, even in the large sizes.
 

I can’t recall seeing a TSV bomb that badly. I had the sound off but wonder if CK was claiming they had brought in more of every color because every color is so popular, and that’s why they had so many of every color left.

Shrug: perhaps most like me are relishing the good weather when I don't need a boot, and dread boot weather when we will be sadly confined again to the house and therefore don't need new boots ??????

Nice half-tuck Liam.  NOT.

This is the first H-T I've seen on a man; at least an intentional one.  

Not a fan of the half-man-tuck.  Looks like he created a package-viewing window.

That’s kind of the point—QVC (and Vionic) are totally out of touch to the point that they completely blew a TSV.

QVC and Lug did a face mask TSV recently. Granted, they were apparently dreadful masks, but at least the idea was timely.

If they had had Vionic slip on walking shoes, I’d probably have sprung for a few pair, as the Vionic Ema shoes I got last year have been fantastic. Or they could have offered Vionic slippers and probably made a killing.

But ankle boots?! LOL

Just this week my employer announced no return to offices for the balance of the year. I think everyone thought after Labor Day everything will be normal, but who knows?

No need for anything new. We don't Zoom or Skype, just emails!

to play devil's advocate that boot ts was probably planned months ago pre-CV so again lousy timing, not anyone's fault .  they kind of need to sell thru what they have .

Liam must be feeling like a fish out of water with no feet or ankles on which to draw dotted lines.

He does, however, have a lot of blank space below the belt for a personal Sharpie diagram.

When they put Julia on ITKWM and allowed her to host it when Mary was away due to her thyroid surgery I figured they were trying to pigeonhole her into kitchen shows.  As in Mary takes over the top kitchen spot whenever David calls it a career and then Julia becomes the #2 kitchen person.

Seriously, Q?  $70 is NOT a clearance price.  So what if it's 35% off the original $110.  It's a freakin' Logo dress that has nothing special about it.

I saw the first presentation last night to see what it did.  I am oddly intrigued by it!  But the demos are gross.  I read some reviews and would be afraid I’d wreck my face using it.

I have one that I bought for less elsewhere. I have never had all that gunk. I don’t think they washed their faces first as you are supposed to. But using it makes me break out.

Perhaps these shoes would have sold more successfully if there was better proportion between the toe box and the decoration.

Their awkward name description should be changed to Attack of the Plastic Sand Dollars.

I've liked the things I've tried- bought on the cheap from eBay and TJMAXX. I certainly wouldn't pay full price for any of it. 

 

And Because it can't be said enough, when did Denim and Co. get so damn ugly? It's like Gary picks the ugliest prints he can find. At least Isaac has a good eye. The TSV cardigan is completely uninspired and the marl/ space-dye has been done to death. Ymmv.

I honestly do not get the appeal of Temptations.  From what I gather the quality is iffy in looks, quality is iffy in performance for the baking dishes, the resale value is next to nil, and people who have entire sets of the stuff find out they can't give it away.

Oh, and "Your Inspo Spot" sounds like something I need to discuss with a doctor.

Thursday is all Fall decor on the Q!  

I thought it was really really interesting when watching a short video of Ant cooking sausage and potatoes and she said she uses the Temptations baking dish as her food tastes better in it!  She said she was not endorsing the line but her food actually tastes better cooking in it!!  Not sure what to think?

About one gruesome looking floral top last night, Gary said "This looks like something you'd find at that store that begins with 'A' and ends with 'gie.' Anthropologie?? Is he kidding? I almost laughed out loud. Then he said, "Put a "1" in front of the price and that's how much it would cost there."  The man is delirious. Too much time spent with Acorn, I think.

 I’d like to propose that the Q send their moderators or monitors over to the host’s QVC affiliated social media pages. They could swoop in to cull, and edit, and poof posts just as they do on the QVC forums. As watchdogs, they should be watchful of content unbecoming a host. Maybe they could help the hosts protect themselves from themselves.

I suppose there would have to be some established standards and boundaries.

We are still able to comprehend some level of acceptable universal behavior and absolutes. Aren’t we?
