Shopping Channel Hosts: Sales Prevention Team

I think if you enter a contest to sell your clothing line, it was not going anywhere in reg retail and you sign yourself to the Big Guy (looking at you Faust)

It's not related to a contest, but I think the Tolani line of clothing is exclusive to QVC now. Every host introduces Tolani shows by saying her expensive line of silk clothing is sold in high end department stores. That used to be true, but not any more. I checked the websites of several stores such as Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, etc., and they either have no Tolani silk items at all, or just a couple on clearance sale. Tolani still sells silk items from her own website, but even those are on clearance sale. I think she's given up on silk and is only selling the cheaper fabrics now.

Good point about Faust! Beware, QVC vendors. You think you're going to have great success with Q, but you may have to pay for it later.

The Fashion Polls are open!

It's that time of year - we have another six months of horrible fashion for you to view and vote on! You'll have five days to vote; polls close at Noon on Sunday the 11th.

You'll find the polls in the Shopping Channels forum main menu listed as follows: 

The Worst SCS Fashions - January to June 2021: Part 1, and

The Worst SCS Fashions - January to June 2021: Part 2

I''m not sure why some of the pics came out so huge, at least on my PC from which I post the polls. I haven't checked out how they look on my tablet but will do so. FYI - some are panels - one, two or three pics melded together. Hopefully everyone can see all the pics!

There are twelve categories in total this time around, split over two polls:

Part 1:

1. Caro's Fashion Hall of Shame (because what's a fashion poll without a Carolyn category?)

2. Shawn's Very, Very, Very Bad Hair Day (which is pretty much every day)

3. No! No! LOGO (Lori continues to defy the natural laws of the universe with her bizarre outfits)

4. The Stylist Made Me Wear It (Why I Hate Angelo) (models and hosts subjected to someone else's notion of good fashion)

5. What Not to Wear: Worst Individual Fashion Item (you'll have a hard time choosing in this category - there are some truly awful nominees)

6. Favorites: Fashion Designers/Presenters We Like (a carryover category from the last poll with a new slate of nominees)

Part 2:

1. Model Feet: The Many Poses of Carolyn Gracie (our gal loves to strut her stuff)

2. A Poo-pourri of Bad Looks (a mishmosh of WTFs?)

3. It's a Blab, Blab, Blab, Blab World! (like the Carolyn category, a Blabby category always make it into the polls)

4. Shawnie Sue's Dare to Wear (and this woman is the Q's fashion maven?)

5. Poor Jacqui! (no model gets stuffed into unflaterring get-ups quite like our Jacqui)

6. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall - Who's the Worst Dresser of them All? (it's time for a head-to-head cage match of the worst dressed hosts; the big three of course - Carolyn, Jane and Shawn - and a couple of other contenders, just for good measure!)

Have a good laugh, friends, as you walk down memory lane of the past six months of fashion, Shopping Channel style!

That’s funny, hbird! It’s the drive-in movie version of the polls. 

Not sure why some pics are showing up that big. I linked the pics from the same photo saving service I always use. Oh well, it doubles the fun...and the horror!

Picture Size in Fashion Poll

If you have a touch screen device, you can pinch any of the huge photos in the polls to shrink them on your screen to be able to see the whole pic. Some of them are a panel of two or more photos, and only one or two pics of the panel is showing in the current size. For example, in “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall,” here’s one of the nominee pics:

991CB5EA-38F6-433F-8B33-66C70CEA538F.thumb.jpeg.eaf497ef5d13e3858073e927199ce2d3.jpeg

If you “pinch” the pic from corner to corner on your touchscreen device, you can see the whole thing, all three pics of the panel. One pinch should shrink all the pics in that poll so you can see them better.

Hope this aids your viewing pleasure!

Sorry, I don’t have a fix for a non-touch screen device!

I went to peek at Jane for one, blabby moment. I wasn’t there for more than 14 seconds. And this is what struck me…

She speeds through this animated state, shows interest, preparation, enthusiasm and so on. I think what gets me is that she has one speed. No gears, no downshift, definitely no idling. I would just love a little modulation. I need some variation of tone and pitch. Watching her is motivating but it’s over-stimulation on 5 Easy Pays, every day.

Gotta admire her vitality…but I’m tired.

It’s time for another Throwback Thursday! Very timely since we have our current fashion poll going on. On Throwback Thursday, I share a few nominees from past fashion polls.

It’s been so interesting going through the old photos. I’ve been doing these polls since 2017. In four years, nothing has really changed! The fashion sense of the some of the hosts, as well as much of the clothing, and the stylings on the models were awful then and they’re just as awful now. Another thing that struck me...the three hosts - Caro, Blabby and Shawn - who, between them, probably have the most fashion hours in the schedule, are the worst dressers with no fashion sense whatsoever! This makes no sense, but it’s QVC we’re talking about, lol. 

Anyway, enjoy this week’s Throwback Thursday!

Both MBR and Rachel were chewing for quite a while on the first try.  Not that there is anything wrong with chewing your food thoroughly, but that does not give me a positive impression of the product no matter how much they praise it to the skies (read: the meat is tough).  And as the presentation went on they really went into a hard sell as they quit taking bites.

I admit I have issues with most of the hosts especially Carolyn and Blabby (it’s funny that those two bother me more than Shawnie and pubic bone because I feel like Carolyn and Blabby are nasty and mean spirited while the other two are just dumb and dumber and totally self-absorbed but Carolyn and Blabby know exactly what they are doing)....

I never realized how much Rachel bothers me until I was subjected to her this afternoon....ugh

Thank you @Booney for all your excellent hard work on the (bad)fashion polls and the Thursday trips down memory lane. You have given us all some good laughs! It really is astounding to see the hosts being willing to look like they dressed in the dark when they know they are being seen by millions.  Obviously, sometimes they must take one for the team and wear clothes that they are trying to sell. However, I'm not buying if it looks awful on the hosts or models and I wonder who does purchase when they see poor Pam poured into a pair of too tight jeans and a midriff hugging knit top. All that aside, I rarely buy any clothes because the prices are ridiculous. I can get much better bargains at my local mall.

Please remember to keep the discussions about the host(s) and not your fellow members.  If you see something you believe breaks a site/forum rule, report it and then ignore it.  Thanks.
