One would think this look says: 

"I don't care.  I'm getting paid anyway."

or

"Maybe my prescription needs an increase in magnification."

But the way she examines herself in the monitor and poses, she really thinks she looks good.

Straw hair.  Sloppy clothes.  No, you don't.

She really does. When she was presenting that jacket - zipping, unzipping, twirling around - she was just so full of herself. Confidence is a good thing...until it crosses over into delusion. Carolyn is on the delusional end of the spectrum.

Well, it could be worse, Caro could add the half tuck to her outfit. I swear every time I see a half tuck I think they didn’t look in a mirror before they exited the ladies room.

Sure, a host should get bonus points for wearing the clothing they are selling at their place of business.

But if those clothes are ill-fitting and unattractive on you, then that doesn't make you or your place of business look good.

There are a lot of fuller-figured women shopping at the Q for fashion. And the cut of the clothing they sell, while available in larger sizes is, much of the time, not flattering.

It seems like QVC does not make use of focus groups, where different demographics can express what they want and what they don't want in clothing.

Marla Wynne does this. She seems very interested in pleasing her customers.

Getting more and more disgusted with Carolyn every day.  Landed on Q3 and there she was with an early morning Carolyn's Closet, making fun of Gary yet again:  "Do you think he's still asleep at this hour?  I'm sure he's putting on eye cream and a beauty mask."

Gracie follows this up with:  "I'll bet Gary, if he's listening, would want to reach into the t.v. screen and strangle me"

I'm not a violent person.  Perhaps a good on-air throttling would suffice for this bitch.

Tough love moment for snarkers:

She's never going to dress in a figure-flattering manner.

She's never going to condition her hair.

She's never going to put three pieces of clothing together that coordinate.

She's never going to see what we see.

She's never going to change.

We can only change our attitude towards her.

Now buck up, gird your loins, and ready yourself for the next fashion disaster tomorrow.

I may be going out on a limb here. I didn't see the show where Caro made these comments, so just going by the quotes written here. Is there a slight homophobic slant to her digs at Gary ? I don't know anything about Gary's personal situation, so maybe that even doesn't apply, but just a thought. Didn't she joke about his manhood on a previous show when she said Acorn was the only male ? Even if she's "just kidding" and wasn't intending to relate it to whatever may be his sexual orientation, the comments are still nasty and unnecessary and just basically bitchy. 😟

Yes, her comments are homophobic, harrassing, ignorant and ballsy, to say the least. How she's allowed to do this is beyond me. Gary should sue her. She also needs to knock off the stupid squirrel shit.

I predict the tragicomedy jumpsuit will sell well…spend the summer in the back of closets…and find itself in a Salvation Army bin in the fall.

It’s impractical, unflattering on all but roadkill flat supermodels and ‘trend-right’ for a millisecond of a millisecond.

Who wears this stuff, and where, in real life?

Short of wearing an overcoat, there was no way Carolyn was going to disguise the total disaster of her attire.

It's really kind of sad.  A lot of people really had a "come to Jesus" moment with the pandemic, realizing what was important in life.  I include myself in this realization.  You'd think that these hosts, who remained gainfully employed, would have a little humility - especially when they weren't able to muster up gratefulness. 

A few of these hosts have really changed since the pandemic, and not for the better.  Carolyn, Jane, Shawn.....even David to a lesser degree than these three.

What I can't figure out - for myself - is if they changed or if I did.
