Craving Fashion with QVC & Isaac Mizrahi Live!

Last Reply by LoveYorkies 1367077722.49 | Started by Melissa Johnson in Fashion Talk, Isaac Mizrahi Live!, Hosts & Personalities

Does the new season have you craving fashion? Either which way you slice it or dice it, patterns and trends play a unified roll across the board for desserts, fashion, interior design, and so much more! When I took a peek into QVC’s exclusive Isaac Mizrahi Live! spring clothing line, it screamed dessert to me. All I could think about was how a pink ribbon on a sweater reminded me of a trending cake design or how a poofy skirt reminded me of fluffy cotton candy from the state fair. My mind was filled to the brim with endless ideas, so I met with fashion stylist Tracy Mitchell of Good Day ... Continue Reading

Celebrating All the Joy with QVC

Started by Melissa Johnson in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities 1352219536.437

For the past four years, I have been guilty of staying up the night prior piping last minute touches of frosting on cookies and cupcakes.  I usually get about five hours of sleep and feel exhausted the next day. When QVC me about their holiday 2012 motto “All the joy, None of the Craziness,” it instantly made sense to me.  It made me think for a moment and realize how I can apply this to my own life for future holidays...
