My Happy Holidays & Innovations for 2012

Last Reply by jinan 1325802138.783 | in Fashion Talk, All About Accessories

Well, it was really holiday time for me…I took a superb break and traveled to see friends and family for a little skiing (I mainly drank hot chocolate and cheered on the gang). But before my husband and I started our holiday, we went to a stunning performance of "The Nutcracker" at the New York City Ballet on Christmas Eve. I wore a vintage Bob Mackie. I purchased it at a resale store two weeks prior. Boy oh boy, that man can design. I was so proud when a ballerina commented before the show, "What a beautiful dress!" I said, "Well, it's A Bob Mackie original!" It was a magnificent ... Continue Reading

Leah's 2011 Top Ten List

Last Reply by shopalcoholec 1345137143.317 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

What would the end of the year be without a Top 10 List? I know... I know... there’s no shortage of top 10 lists. But it’s hard to resist the fun of looking back at the past year and tallying our favorites. Top 10 songs, movies, books, gadgets, recipes, outfits! It’s amusing to recall and rank our “most-liked” from the year gone by. I’ll bet you’re thinking of your favorite things from 2011 right now. With 52 Saturdays (give or take) filled with fashion, accessories and beauty, it was hard to whittle it down to just 10. But in the end, the items that... Continue Reading

Happy New Year! Celebrating QVC's 25th Anniversary One Last Time

Last Reply by roof rats 1327269106.107 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

QVC’s 25th Anniversary is almost over! It’s been an unforgettable year for QVC (and for me), and I’m truly honored to have been part of the celebration. I hope you’ve had the chance to view the "25 to Watch" anniversary-inspired videos on QVC.com. But if not, or you haven’t looked lately, do a search for "25 to Watch" and see what's new. Here’s just one of the videos you can find under my name.     I can still see that raccoon stuffing his face with dog food. I’ll never forget it!!   My “Style File” this week is a...

A Bob Mackie New Year!

In Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?  Are you going to a splashy party to ring in 2012?  It’s always a nice opportunity to get dolled up and drink a glass of bubbly.  Be the life of the party!  What Bob Mackie design will you wear? I have been feeling the silver and gold theme lately, so I will probably go with something sparkly.  As promised, here are some photos from our table for the Christmas Eve dinner party: I am thinking that for New Year’s Eve I will wear Bob’s Sequin Spangle Stretch Velvet Pullover Top (A218920) and matching pa...

Give Winter the Boot!

Last Reply by Reiss1980 1325078602.55 | in Fashion Talk, All About Shoes, TSV Talk

  It was one day last winter when the forecast was calling for a significant amount of snow. My husband was going to be out of town, so I asked him to show me how to use the snow blower, hoping of course that I wouldn't have to use it! Unfortunately for me, the weatherman was right. I woke up to five inches of snow and it still was coming down. It was windy, it was cold, and the last thing I wanted to do was go outside. I got dressed, layering all the clothes that I could to keep warm, but then suddenly realized that I didn't have a boot to handle what I was seeing through my window. I... Continue Reading

By now, I’ll bet your tree is up and it looks fabulous. And, after last week’s video, you may even have some nicely decorated garland lining your mantle or banister. But do you have feathery boas in your windowsill? Or custom-made boa wreaths decorating your walls?

Well, in the song they say my ‘two front teeth’, but, if you are a Mackinista, you know you’d rather have something new from Bob Mackie’s line of Wearable Art, right? I have selected a WOW piece for you:  Bob Mackie’s Knit Sweater Coat with Embroidered Sleeves (A217769).  I have it in the grape color.  The other colors are red and stone. All of the color choices are finished with the black knit trim and embroidery. This sweater recently debuted in Fall 2011 and is already Customer Top Rated!  I think it’s because this really has the l... Continue Reading

I know it seems a little silly and melodramatic, but I cannot tell you how much it means to me that you enjoyed last week's video on decorating the Christmas tree. I love decorating for the holidays, but it's a lot of work, so when you enjoy it, it makes it all so worth it — over 8,000 views, thank you, thank you!!! I know we touched on how to attach the garland to the mantel, but this next segment is about how to fill it, and it's probably easier than you think. Most people have a tree, but adding the garlands on the stairs or the mantels really makes you Santa's fav... Continue Reading

Arts & Crafts Winner!

Last Reply by freshbaby 1325949482.597 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

I was never really into Arts and Crafts. As a kid I didn’t make things--I didn’t paint or draw. I didn’t sew, knit, needlepoint or crochet. I didn’t do decoupage or macrame. I was a Girl Scout, but I didn’t get badges for make-it-yourself jewelry or toys or dolls. I got a candle making kit one year for my birthday. It had a mushroom shaped mold, wax, wicks and paints, and I never made a single candle. I’m not really sure why. I was creative -- I just never took to hobbies and crafts. Notice the absence of badges on my Girl Scout sash in 1971. That is... ... Continue Reading

My Favorite Fleece Jacket!

Last Reply by Suer 1323988403.047 | in Fashion Talk, Susan Graver, Hosts & Personalities

We're back from the UK and what a whirlwind trip it was! Luckily I had my favorite fleece jacket, A81865 - Susan Graver Bonded Fleece Reversible Bi-Color Hooded Jacket. Running back and forth to QVC UK and shopping the stores between shows, I was happy to throw on my jacket and run! The hood was a life saver since I was caught in the rain without an umbrella and was able to pull up the hood to keep me dry and warm my ears. Plus, the hood saved my hair-do for my shows on air! Oh, and I actually wore the jacket on the 7 hour plane ride that had the air conditioning blasting the whole trip. M... Continue Reading

“Are you feeling adventurous?” As I entered the studios where my official QVC photo shoot was taking place, I was greeted with those words from the photographer. It was 8am, and I had just wrapped up my second overnight shift. Even though I’d been in the studios since 11pm the night before, I was oddly still running on a lot of adrenaline and feeling VERY adventurous! After all, this was a day I’d been dreaming of for years! I’d done plenty of photo shoots back in Texas, but none like this. I was tended to by our Stylist Extraordinaire Maria McCool, who (luckil...

We’re Back Tomorrow at 6AM ET in QVC This Morning Fashion Friday!

In Fashion Talk, Liz Claiborne New York, Hosts & Personalities

Hello my fellow fashionistas!!! I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and family and friends filled your heart. Truth be told, I ate way too much and will spend the weeks leading up to Christmas to work off the turkey and pie only to regain the Christmas ham. Oh my, the things we do to stay in shape! Holiday shopping: All of the fun. None of the madness. Love the slogan, but I could use another two people in my life to help remove the madness. So I am volunteering myself to be one of your Santa helpers. Starting tomorrow and moving through the month of December, LCNY will hav... Continue Reading

Lady Gaga’s Workshop!

Last Reply by mdjrsg 1323059404.537 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

We had so much fun this past weekend and wanted to share with you! Barney’s New York collaborated with Lady Gaga and her team to design a range of exclusive, special edition items. Barney’s converted an entire floor into Lady Gaga’s workshop! The workshop was brightly colored with very Gaga-esque items. We adored the patent high-heeled stocking stuffers, spike ring pops, cookies and chocolates with Gaga’s picture on them, just to name a few. It was the perfect place to find holiday gifts. We wound up playing for over an hour mesmerized by all the colorful and ... Continue Reading

Dear Friends, I want to wish you all a blessed holiday season, good health and much happiness to all of you and your family and friends. QVC has invited me to do a show the day after Christmas at 4:00 p.m. ET. I am going to bring my baby with me, my little red poodle Dauphine, so please watch on Monday, December 26th.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your loyal and great support throughout this year. I can't believe I'm going on my 8th year at the Q. It seems like only ...

These Boots Rock!

Last Reply by HopeReigns 1322715173.707 | in Fashion Talk, All About Accessories, All About Shoes

“These boots rock!” was my first thought tonight when I saw the White Mountain Tall Shaft Boot TSV backstage waiting for their midnight presentation.  Each of the four colors represented in a gleaming row; well, sort of.  The taupe pair was in the bedroom set being tried on for size by the Coordinating Producer, who yelled out, “They’re so comfortable!  Order me the Size 9 at midnight!”  The gray pair was on the style set with Floor Assistant who was sitting on the floor pulling them off.  When she saw me coming in her direction, she said,...

There's Magic in the Air

Last Reply by petite amie 1323297034.817 | in Beauty Banter, Fashion Talk, All About Accessories

Hi PM Style ladies! Are we all recovered from the whirlwind Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend? I ate my fair share of Thanksgiving grub on Thursday and loved every minute of it. My mother-in-law put the turkey in a roasting bag this year and it came out so juicy and tender. My father-in-law hardly had to carve the bird — once you took a knife to it, it just started to fall off the bones. I was in charge of the stuffing and decided that I’m not making it ever again. I ate too much of it! Pumpkin pie, had 2 slices of it. Chocolates, had about a half dozen. Oh, and homema... Continue Reading

Kick Back Wednesday/Item of the Week

In Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Black Friday, Cyber Monday?  I am calling today ‘Kick Back Wednesday.’  Black Friday has been considered to be the biggest shopping day of the year and the “official” start to holiday shopping.  This expression was first given by the Philadelphia Police Department because they experienced so much chaos with the busy crowds.  But now we have the luxury of shopping on the internet so Cyber Monday was added.  But, if you missed the elbowing crowds or cyber shopping as I did because I was still entertaining houseguests, fear not, QVC and Bob Mackie ...

Post Turkey Details

In Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

How was your Thanksgiving?  We had a lovely dinner for eighteen, and all was delicious.  We brined the Turkey this year.  I had always heard that it really makes a difference, and wow, does it ever!  What is brining?  With a pot big enough for your bird, you submerge it into water that has dissolved salt.  We also added crushed garlic cloves, sage and maple syrup.  It was the most full-flavored and moist bird we have ever cooked.  Here is a photo of Ivo and me with our bird. I also love the table wardrobe.  Since I do floral events for a living, ... Continue Reading

My Most Unusual Thanksgiving

Last Reply by stocious 1322932057.887 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

My most unusual Thanksgiving ever was the first year I came to West Chester to be a host on QVC. As a new host, I worked the overnight hours, and that included Thanksgiving. My sister Mona lived in NYC then, and since I was the one with the crazy schedule, she came to PA so that we could spend the holiday together. With just the two of us, and because I needed to get a nap in before going to work, cooking wasn’t an option. We called every place that I could think of. But because we hadn’t really planned ahead, all of the fancy restaurants that served Thanksgiving dinner were booked... Continue Reading
