Now isn't that ironic, given all the comments here.

 

Not exactly sure what you mean.

Edit - I probably do know what you mean, and if you're comparing a man's co-workers snarking him live, on a television program that arguably is in "100,000,000 homes", to what many say here, well I would disagree that it is comparable.  I'm not as hard on him as some, mainly because I can relate a bit.

I was checking Amy Stran's FB page to see if there were any announcements about her new show and came across this from a couple of days ago.  She said she had just come from McTool's and while she was going to let her hair grow out, she changed her mind and went shorter and blonder.

To me, it looks like a version of Shawn's hair when she went on PM Style!  This must be the official hairstyle of PMS!  I think Amy looks really pretty without much makeup, but the hair?  Oy, not good......

wowzers at how much fresher she looks unmade up. the makeup ages her a solid 15 years!!! and the hair is aging another 10. Oh Amy why???????????

Why did you let that monster talk you into cutting and damaging again! Grow it out!!! I bet her husband wants her to grow it out lol. That cut is NOT attractive on her face. It's basically Justin Bieber hair or something lol.

i don't get it... if she's doing this look at 39 what look will she be doing at 59???? What is the deal with her???

Amy, I implore you to STOP seeing McTool. You are a beautiful woman but she is destroying your looks as she is so experienced at doing !

i don’t see a lot of Mary but I find her easy to watch, although the down home chumminess can get a bit much after a while. I think we sometimes forget though, that most “normal” viewers watch shopping channels for a few minutes then hop off somewhere else. More invested viewers might watch an entire show. Then there are people like us who probably watch more than is good for us because we like discussing the nuances. 

I guess the danger is that they give her so many hours across so many product ranges that she starts to grate on people. Over exposure is a common problem on all types of tv though isn’t it? 

Smartly stated.

Carolyn should ditch the short jackets permanently and stick with longer jackets like this one. The duster length doesn’t work for everyone, but I think it’s flattering on her. Her shoes work nicely with the jeans too. I do have to chuckle though at her “model feet” pose because she’s selling folding metal shelves!

Ant also looked nice during her Logo show. Her hair is looking better than that awful bob she was sporting, although I think the bangs are still too heavy for her face.

Happy viewing!

Amy can carry off many different hairstyles.  This is not my favorite, but she's still cute.  She must have to use a LOT of product (or has some natural wave/curl) to get that piecy look, though.  (I love "piecy" looks but my hair inevitably falls, straight!  lol)

Yes! 

When I made my comment above, it wasn't to mean that I disliked the haircut....I dislike the highlights, which as you point out above, look like an old school frost job, just like Shawn Killinger's looked!

I can't believe how similar Aimes looks to Skunky now.  They definitely look related now.  McTool is the worst for short haircuts.  She must give some discount to her QVC clients or are they free?

Caro really should wear more dusters like that.  Even the print camouflages her muffin-top.

I had to post pics of Marie O.  She looks like a mannequin.  That's St. MaryBeth's sister btw!  She lost over 100 lbs.

What sort of hold does this McTool woman have over these hosts? That hair on Amy is so dated and aging. The Kate Gosselin cut, the brassy highlights that look like they came from a box of Revlon Frost'N'Glo, it's awful. I liked her shoulder length, dark hair much better.

Caro and Ant both look great in the long tops. For once, Caro's outfit won't get on the 2019 Worst Fashions list.

Probably all of the above. Certainly giving some of the bigger selling hosts like Rick a show on Q2 seems to be a tactic to bring more viewers there. For someone like Dan Hughes, I’m not sure. It seems like the main channel is doing more and more fashion in the mornings when Dan is usually on. Maybe there’s not as much of a place for him on the main channel any more. Some of the others may be low sellers and being sent to the farm team. For example, I agree with @SnowDazed that Katie and Gobby are dreadfully boring and, therefore, may be better suited to Q2 where expectations may be lower.

I was surprised to see that GILI Jill is actually thinner than Amy!  Amy actually looks curvy next to her.  GILI Jill's jeans look too tight and gross tonight.

Skunko bum rushed  the set during a LOGO presentation with Amy.  She acted like they were all good friends with lots of fake hugs and kisses.  She is really working it tonight with LOGO.  Actually acting happier than usual.  I will say she wears the LOGO rags well.

I agree with you - this seems to suit Shawn and her quirky "style".  I only saw a little bit of it - I unfortunately tuned in during a very frenetic showing of what looked like a Logofied henley tee.  It was madness watching the two of them and I had to turn it off!

Amy and Jill look like they're wearing black leotards on their way to ballet class. Too tight.

Shawn looks like she's on her way to a quilting class and has all her fabric scraps attached to her jacket and two tops. Hey, that's what customers can do with all the junk hanging off the bottoms of Lori's clothes -- cut it off and make little quilts. Placemats, baby quilts, pet quilts, pillow shams. Might as well get your money's worth.

I have a couple of Loco Lori's garments.  A couple of tank/cardi sets that are solid colors and match.  They do have a ruffle attachment, but it's the same-tone fabric and not overly gathered.  One cardi has no attachment at the hem.  What I like about them is the more generous sweep dimension, which jives with my body's generous sweep dimension.  What I don't like is the rayon/spandex fabric content, which clings to things it shouldn't cling to.  I still wear a couple of them, with spanx and unadorned pants (no buttons/pockets etc. to muck up the works).  

I'm confident that Logo's window for ruffles and doo-dads is closing.  That design affect has been around longer than it should be.  I would like to see her dip her toe in the woven fabric pool, while keeping the tunic lengths and a-line cuts.

Carolyn was apparently glued to her TV during Shawn’s D&C show last night. She keeps talking about it. “Gary, I thought Shawn was going to die when she realized she was wearing Denim & Co jeans.”

I think she’s annoyed that more hosts are doing D&C shows. She recently said that Gary is on air a lot these days, and he was no longer “exclusive” to her.

They presented a blouse and Gary said that Carolyn had brought him one that she bought elsewhere, and he created a D&C version of it. “You do what Carolyn says,” said Gary. Carolyn: “Can you call my husband and tell him to do that?” Gary, looking at the camera: “Do what Carolyn says.” Bossypants demands obedience!

It must have really galled her to watch the TSV debut with Shawn, to the point where she stayed up to watch it, considering that she's working today.

I, too, have her simpler-styled garments - no peplums, minimal tonal lace, non-or-merely-small-matching edge ruffles. And also hope that she keeps the tunic lengths and A-line cuts.

I like printed tops because I don't tend to wear layers of clothing which necessitates styling the colors - I'd melt from the heat of the layers- so I like a lot of her prints. Such a change from the usual dreary patterns that might, just might, be offered in the plus sizes in SWAD.

I don't mind the rayon-span, because nothing short of a burqa is going to hide my Pleasantly Plump Personage©.😊

I think the importance of the rayon span to her is that it doesn't shrink or fade like the cotton blends will.

I do give her credit that her clothes are different. They might not be to everyone's taste, but if "classic" styling isn't your cup of tea, then the incorporation of some her items can nicely mix things up.

While I don't agree that "everything goes with everything", I have gotten a better appreciation for non-matchy color combinations from watching her stylings.

Why can't people just say they have a wide calf?! I wear wide calf boots. My legs aren't fat but the aren't "athletic" either. I just have large calf muscles that are NOT the result of any sort of athletics. Bodies are all different. Let's embrace them and not have to excuse ourselves for not being a runway model.

I had to look- yes it's quite nice (and solid!!) but  I agree that the price is out of line. To be honest, it reminds me of Lauren Conrad line Kohl's. Even if they started at a very high $68 it would probably end up costing (you know 20% off this, then an extra whatever) like $28.  Not almost $100 when you consider shipping and tax if applicable.

I could not believe the $89 price tag when I saw that top too!  $50 would even be a little steep!  It is supposedly all cotton which is breathable, but you need a blend to keep the shape IMO and avoid it from shrinking and really wrinkling in the wash.  Some of the reviews were even complaining about it.  Not worth the risk for that price.  While looking back at the top I couldn't help notice how Amy looks a little curvier than usual.  She is by no means heavy but I think she did put on a few pounds and no longer looks so skinny.  Or it could just be extra bulk from the Q clothes she wears for her shows.
