I bought that shirt. It was actually cute in person. But pilled after a couple of washes. That was my one and only purchase of her line. I think all her stuff is low grade rayon/spandex.

So is she.

I’ve never seen or knew there are some items you can’t return or exchange. Such as the Lisa Rinna top. Why is that? I’ve been watching QVC since Day 1 and I’ve never knew that was even a thing. I know things might be limited but why can’t you get your money back if you don’t like it?

I think they just have a group of old items they've decided to sell as "All sales final, no returns."  Some other online retailers and regular B&M stores do that with clearance items. I don't buy anything on those terms any more, after getting burned with shoes I didn't like from two online retailers. The sale prices were so good that I took a chance, -- but the shoes, though they were good quality, just didn't work out for me.

Again, QVC is making is harder and harder to want to do business with them. I saw an item I wanted during one of the shows yesterday. It was at a sale price (and it was an decent sale for once also) but the color choice I wanted was sold out when I went to order. Checked back in a couple times throughout the day and it didn’t reappear.

Today…the item is back to full price and shocker…the color I wanted is back in stock along with several others that were sold out. Sigh. They could have at least left the sale price in place for the weekend.

As @Coffeecupsaid earlier, Blowout Clearance pricing is Q's version of "final sale", and they're getting rid of old and/or very limited quantity merchandise.  The only way you can return a Blowout Clearance item is if it's defective or they mess up and send you the wrong item.

The anticipated ship date of July 17 certainly isn't helping.

I really really wanted it, but that is the exact reason why I didn’t order it.  When you add in the shipping delays with USPS, which they continue to insist on using which is beyond me, that adds 7-10 days or more so I wouldnt get it until the end of July. That is what talked me out of buying.

For those that were commenting on the price, I gotta say Isaac stuff really is great.  You cannot beat the fabric.  I have several of his tops and cardigans and they wear wonderful and still look new.  And they feel fantastic.  Granted, I will never pay $30+ for a t-shirt, but tsvs and clearance prices I definitely pick it up.  I first tried him last year I got a peplum pima shirt on clearance for $14 and I was like ok, now I get it.  lol.  Highly recommend.

I agree with you on the Isaac items.  I haven't purchased much clothing from QVC, but among the few items I did have were a sweater from Isaac that I got a few years ago.  I love it as it's well made, never pills and looks as new today as it did two years ago when I bought it.  I ended up buying two more that were on sale this year!

it is odd b/c if you drill down into the palleted merch, it is often things fairly current (for the Q)  why would they take all that old stuff and palette those?

It is an absolute mystery. Overstocked maybe?  I wonder if there is less going to pallets with all the shipping delays. They need something to sell. 
I canceled my Anybody “graucho” pant jumpsuit. I was concerned about the late shipping. I’m sure it will end up as another special deal once they physically have it. I bet others have thought twice and canceled.

I've been on Side Stich's pricing for a while. There's a shirt on LTS that's on SALE for almost $80. 

Their prices are totally out of line. I got a tencel maxi skirt with snaps down the front for $70 at Macy's. Q would charge $150.

After the past year as things are getting back to normal, we will be spending more time with friends and family while the weather heats up, so we all need to be wearing swimwear 24/7 while still being able to run errands on our way to spending time with our loved ones. That's why.

Seems they especially love to recommend the swimwear cover up when the price tag is $75 or more. 🤔

Last night one of the hosts talked about inflation. I recently bought a pair of Susan Graver pants that I like, but I keep thinking I can’t believe I paid about $70 for this. 😳

If they are charging this price for a pair of pants, is it too much to ask that they not wad up the clothing and shove it in a bag causing it to wrinkle a lot? Seems with linen, they’d at least try to package it a little better.

Very cute dress, but no way would I pay $78 for it!  I would pay in the $30-$40 range if I needed a dress.

They jack around with pricing and availability to keep the lemmings in line. 

The Q has trained their customers to “tap the app” RIGHT NOW or be punished an hour/day/week later with full pricing + S&H.

At that price they are not pants…they are trousers…designed by the number one designer of trousers who trained at the number one trouser factory selling only to number one customers.

Sounds to me like a big pile of number two.

This morning SG suggested her linen items are perfect for country club luncheons.   snicker

Yesterday at WMT I spied linen looking wide-leg loosey-goosey pants with the same type of stripe as the TSV. Don’t know the fabric content but for $16 they’re good for a six month trend, then as a dust cloth.

Yup.

This weekend I heard IM, Graver and Gravel talk about it.

IM apologized. Graver steamrolled. Gravel batted her baby blues.

All said we have to start buying with changing seasons in mind.

They’ve been pushing resort wear since the day after Christmas. So yeah, I guess it’s that time of year.

Given the state of affairs at Q these days, if you buy some of those "transitional clothes" in the next couple weeks they very well may show up on your doorstep close to the start of meteorological fall, which is September 1.

I’m pleased that this weekend has been an “all fashion” weekend with a shoe and clothing TSV each day!!!!!   So unlike the  mattresselectronics TSVs usually offered on weekends — which I do not watch.

Looking at the long-range program guide, it appears that starting the week of July 4 QVC2 is going to have 13 hours of live programming, from 11 a.m. until midnight eastern, at least 5 days a week (not sure about Mondays and Fridays; if they are, the late evening hours will be vendor-hosted).  Besides the now-established vendor-hosted shows, plenty of veteran hosts will be spending some time on Q2 in addition to the newbies getting hours in.

Before they made Q2 all-reruns last year it was running live 12 hours a day, noon to midnight on weekdays and 10-10 on weekends.

Rail thin vendors, models and the midnight host make the TSV look faboo…not one droop, tug or nip slip.

As for me…there’d be serious rug burns and sidewalk skid marks from the dragging*

The Breezies TSV looks a whole lot like a Rhonda Shear Today's Special from a few weeks ago that has terrible reviews.  As of this typing, the 150 1-star reviews outnumber the 2-5 star reviews combined, there are as many 2-star reviews as there are 5-star (53 each), and 3 and 4 stars sit at 23 and 14 respectively.

All the Breezie bras look very thick to me. Not in a padded sense, but like the fabric is thick. I think there are more modern, lightweight fabrics they could be using.

Took a peek. Looks the same. Spiel sounds the same with different labels.

Since both channels fly under the same corporate flag…it wouldn’t surprise me if certain categories of merch all come out of the same vat.

Things must be getting a bit male squirmy today at the Q with all the throwing around of words like “panties” “moist” “wetness.” Those Breezies Bs are such a hoot.

One of the daughters appears to be off-site, out of bitch slap range. She’s been mimicking and trashing “Momager” Kathy since midnight. In this case distance seems to make the heart air dirty laundry.

Is there trouble in UltimAir paradise? Did they take away her allowance and lock her out of the hive? Or is she making up for lost teenage rebellion time?

I have and still do on occasion!    😁  It’s not all horrendous.   I don’t layer them the way she does, but over the years I have purchased some of her items, mostly single-color tunics to wear by themselves or under another long cardigan-type topper.  

Don’t throw tomatoes, but I just ordered tonight’s boyfriend jeans with the contrast cuffs.  They are way too much money, but I think they are cute.  My fear is that if they fit my waist, they’ll be way too baggy in the legs.

I should've been more specific. I meant the horrible prints that she sells. I've bought maybe two of her tops, both solid colors, and still have them. So there's that, but I can never picture someone in a grocery store wearing what LG had on for most of the show.
