cold shoulder is gone didn't see any this year

you must be living in a trendier area than I do, which is the burbs of Washington, DC / Baltimore, MD - I'm smack in the middle between the two.

Cold shoulder lives on in this place, unfortunately.  And includes what @JohnnyStar5 mentioned above, the 3/4 or long sleeve with the slit in the middle of the arm.

Could be it’s very trendy here close to the city 

but I was talking about what I’ve seen in the stores

I've been flipping around and every time I come to the Q show with Sandra she's dropping the Chic bomb!

She must have said it 10,000 times today total.

I heard her refer to one of her skirts as cute to wear with a "wife beater". Girl, no you did not. How's that for chic?

Add me to the list of those that wish sharkbite hemzzzz would disappear. Cannot fathom why they ever came to be. They are not at all flattering imo. Cold shoulder tops can be good if extremely well done, however most end up looking odd.

Grrrr.......

Unfortunately, many of the high-low hems are taken to the extreme. In a tunic, the longer length in the back too often ends up cupping the derriere (sooo lovely!....not). If you have extra padding, in the rear, it just accentuates. If the high-low is really subtle, it can work, visually, especially if one's posture is not the best. Just weird on dresses where the back edge is nearly to the ankles but the front may be at knee length. Not flattering and serves little purpose other than being able to walk up stairs, in a longer dress, and not step on the front hem. It's usefulness is akin to the tiny side slits on some tops. As if a couple inches is going to accommodate fuller hips or allow for sitting and not putting strain on the garment.

They are re-branding Sandra. She is going to have a new home-goods show dubbed "Authentic Living with Sandra." Perhaps meant to fill the YHWJ empty space? 

I personally find the name of the show ironic as I feel Sandra is phony as can be. She is one of the ones that has bought every single item and touts each one as her favorite depending on which oap is standing beside her at the moment. Maybe in a home setting she might be a bit more authentic but so far she comes off as desperate and fake in my eyes. If she could relax she could be enjoyable as a host.  She is probably thrilled that her mini me left. Now her own new show. Big things happening for Sandra.

Speaking of Sandra, she looked and acted so awkward with Rinna last night.  She actually even looked a little dumpy in her clothing which is unusual.  Maybe she was off her game for some reason. 

I've heard Sandra in the past humblebrag about her modern design home.  I think she even proudly shared pics of it.

So some of it is pre-taped?  Maybe from her home and she is live in the studio. And they put her in the denim jacket! 

Jill did pre taped stuff a few years ago.

It didn't work.

The name "authentic Living" is a turn off for me -- in this sales context.

What the heck do they mean by "authentic" living? -- when they're doing to likely be selling the same old stuff we've been seeing. Overall, I don't see where YHWJ, sold anything any different from what we see on David's home show. And I don't expect anything new on Sandras new show.

Different topic: the high-low hem on the H by Halston Open Front Hi-low duster cardigan is too extreme for me. IMO, in most cases the hi-low difference should barely be perceptible. Six inches is way too much difference for me. Just don't like the look of it.

This. I've always found him pleasant, a team player (especially given all the personalities he has to deal with). Even when he's been on late at night, he's upbeat. His vision for some of the designs may not be everyone's taste (whose is?) but do feel he and his team have a good handle on their target demo. Unlike many who've watched the Q for decades, in the time I've watched D&Co it has expanded from what seemed like a collection of just a handful of pants ...and a few tops....to offering a lot of variety but still the core pieces. On some level, they must be doing something right (by many).

Jane just said (and other hosts always say) that viewers flooded her facebook page wanting to know "what was that jacket you had on? tell me about that jean jacket you had on."

When I've tuned in, mid presentation, I can count on one hand -- in more than 25 years -- the number of times I've wondered what item a model might be wearing, or any apparel item being presented for that matter. Even then, I just thought the item was cute. I've never been so bowled over I was dying to order it, or HAD to have it.

I can honestly say, I don't think I've ever wondered -- in a positive, or admiring way -- what any QVC host has had on. Are viewers really clamoring to know what these hosts are wearing?....so they could actually buy it?

If I wonder what a hosts has on, it's because it's just that ghastly.

Have wondered....twice (one host, one model). AlyceC, on HSN, was wearing a color-block dress and it was exactly like a tunic I was designing, so to study it more in online images. Of course, as she informed when I inquired on her FB page, it was from her own collection and I never was able to find it online to get better views. Never ended up making it. Other time was a model in SusanG show wearing an oversized, crocheted shrug/poncho type garment. Inquired of SG, she responded but, again, the model's own piece. But I was able to replicate it. Twice over a few decades of shopping channel viewing.
