Julia Cearley -

Please do less

Maybe her version of the Happy Dance™️?

Is that her face?  She shouldn’t do that again. That’s hideous IMHO

Have work to do and none of the live shows on QVC/HSN is appealing, so I am running Friday's Szish List. I don't have any interest in fashion but just wanted to see what it is.

She started off the show explaining that the title is a play on WISH list. Yeah, that's where everyone's minds went first, LOL.

Bob Mackie is on the panel. He's such an incredibly likable man. And it's nice to see him with a host who knows who he is and how amazing his career has been in terms of both longevity and achievements (HI, KRISTINE ZELL, DO YOUR DAMN HOMEWORK NEXT TIME).

Not sure who the target audience is given that the Q seems mostly to focus on faux jewelry and fashions by Lisa Rinna and Kim Gravel these days, but it's definitely something different, not just in its subject matter but in its tone, which is mature (not as in "aged" but as in "not juvenile," a la Skunky, Stran, et al.), calm and even rather soothing. I wouldn't sit and actively watch this, but as something to have on in the background, or just as something to have on when I'm not in the mood to get too invested in what I'm watching, it's actually pretty great.

This flowy Laurie Felt scarf top looked dreadful on Caro and the model this morning...so, so frumpy. It looks like a short caftan or muumuu.

Looks like a jumbo heavy-duty trash bag on Bossypants. 

ETA just watched item presentation. Laurie Felt knows how to handle Caro. Like an unpredictable wild animal.

I've made tunic tops with a similar hem but it can be tricky, especially if the wearer has extra poundage. The center curve ends up making it appear to be a straight hem which is being pulled up in the middle due to protruding tummy, being very large-chested, or both.

I think this is true of many “shark bite” hems.  Tummy is my problem area, and I’ve often wondered how this style became a thing.  As long as it covers hips or butt, Q  and others seem to think it’s fine.  I protest — apples unite!!! 😀😀

The only other shoes Caro appears to have are those gold metallic mules or the Slogger garden shoes!  She did the very best she could!

Any time I see women - especially those on camera, like the hosts and models on QVC, wearing jeggings or jeans that are way too tight in the knees, I'm always reminded of these little Kewpie dolls.....see how their knees look alike?

Holy Cow - even the way Caro is standing is like this little Kewpie doll!

Oh dear, another Laurie Felt disaster for Caro during her Kim Gravel beauty hour. She poured herself into this belted denim jacket, complete with buttons popping at the bottom. When a denim jacket fits like a wet suit, you should realize you’re in the wrong size.

shoes are OK, I think it's that the jeans are the wrong length they should be ankle, and they hit at the wrong place 

it's just wrong all over, ill fitting outfit

That is a very nice shade of yellow, shame it is wasted on this ugly blouse. Checked it out on the website and it 1.8 stars out of 12 reviews, 7 of the 12 are 1 star. 

I briefly considered the TSV jeans but after seeing them on Carolyn and some of the models, I will pass. Plus there are no front pockets, only “faux” ones.

Last few mins on the Q:  totally off the rails. Amy’s claim, “that was soooo funny” was not funny. The whole few seconds were as cringeworthy as I’ve seen in months. And, to top it off...Laurie Felt exclaimed, “We just went off the reservation on that one”!

I can’t tell you...even tho I played Amy’s comments back a few times. Some lines from some movie. She was doing so much screeching, along with the model she directed it to, it was a mess. She thought it was amazing. The rest of the models and KZ just stood there.

She does screech a lot lately
’sup with that, and whatever her speech issues are it exacerbates it 

wonder is she has ever got some help. To smooth it over ,

Those are some dreadful "fashion" choices.  Holy crap, do they not have a mirror available?

I may not look like I'm right off of Park Avenue, but I don't show bulges, wear too tight clothing, nor stuff that looks that damned strange.  

Never have seen this Cearley person nor do I want to ever see her.  SCARY!

It’s always concerned me that NYC water is fluoridated. I try to live a clean life but in this case I have no choice. It’s upsetting. 

2/3 of the U.S. has fluoridated water, while only about 6% of the world population in total has it.  I haven't really studied the pros vs cons.  Seems like I should do that.

Carolyn was on with Nick Chavez this morning, and her hair looked great -- so Nick must have done it. I haven't seen Nick in a while and his fake bake was scary. His face looked blotchy on HD TV and was much darker than his hands. But I admit I have a soft spot for Nick, his man-handling the models as he styles their hair, his over the top commentary, because his Volumizing Extra Hold hair spray (in the blue can) has been my HG hair styling product for years. Can't live with out it. So you go on with your bad self, Nick.
