Response to Sugar and Spice

Last Reply by Qshooper 1322415519.767 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hello Sugar and Spice, I’m so excited to hear that you are dying to try a pair. They do run true-to-size, and they come in three different lengths: petite, regular and tall. Keep in mind, this jean is a comfort fit and isn’t designed to be skin tight. You can get them online: Petite (A216494), Regular (A216310) and Tall (A216493). Thanks again for your comment, and feel free to ask me further questions on Twitter: @ReneeInControl and on Facebook: With Attitude, Renee Greenstein Continue Reading

Hello Banzar, I’m so sorry to hear that you weren’t able to get a skirt for yourself. Stay tuned, because they will be coming back. In the meantime, I do have another great skirt that I think you should try. It is more casual than the pencil skirt and doesn’t have tummy control. It is my Fly Front Skirt with Back Pockets (A217052). There’s also my ¾ Sleeve Tee Shirt Dress (A219326) which is another great day to evening number!

Hi and happy (almost) Thanksgiving! I have to say this is one of my favorite times of year. The last leaves are still floating down from the tree branches, people are making travel plans to see friends and family, and holiday menus are being discussed over the phone, email, and even in my blog! :-) If I could have my favorite Thanksgiving dishes all year round, I think I’d be the happiest girl in the world! Pumpkin pie, in my opinion, is even better the next day as a breakfast dish or a late-night snack! On last weeks’ episode Isaac and Shawn got into a discussion of Thanksgiving ... Continue Reading

Christmas Past, Christmas "Present"

It’s fun to recall fond holiday memories, and it's just as exciting to think about the new memories that'll be created this season. I can remember my parents saying, “If you don’t go to sleep, Santa won’t come.” I was so excited, it was nearly impossible to fall asleep. But eventually, I did. And sure enough, Santa came! I think he brought me a Suzy Homemaker oven that year.   The fact that I remember my Suzy Homemaker oven is a testament to the power of the perfectly chosen gift. It can mean so much, and it may be the thing that will bring back fond hol... Continue Reading

Hi, PM Style ladies. How are you? I had fun with you last Monday night. The girls were so funny dancing in the beginning of the show. I loved when Monica joined in and really let loose. She was good! I can't compete with them, lol. The show was a nice mix of fashion, beauty, and accessories. I thought that one scarf with the three tiers was really cute. Oh and Susan's "secret" top was a great idea, too. I thought about ordering that Liz Claiborne New York jacket at the beginning of the show, but I have something similar so I thought I should hold off. We've got lots of presents to buy in the ...

Hello! For a while, I had concluded that if you were flying out of Philadelphia and it was raining… go ahead and count on your flight being delayed by at least 2 hours. However, IF it’s snowing… count your flight leaving 15 minutes early.  For more than a year, this assumption had worked for me UNTIL October 29th. As you know, we had a huge storm up here that involved snow, hail, rain, and a bunch of dark clouds.  My 1:00 PM flight left at 10:30PM causing me to miss my Aunt Sissy’s SURPRISE 70th birthday party.  All was not lost though; I did mana...

The time has come to pick up a new outfit for the holiday season. The holidays always call for something special, whether it is sparkles, velvet, or my new favorite trend, lace. If you have yet to incorporate lace into your wardrobe, this is the year to do it!

How Many Bras Does It Take to Fill a VW Bug?

In Fashion Talk, All About Accessories

Thank you, all, for helping the B.R.A. (Bra Recycling Agency) make an impact on our mission to extract the underwire from recycled bras and sell it for a 100% donation to breast cancer research. Volkswagen filled their Bug with about 1,000 bras — about $80 worth of metal reclamation. Don't fret… There are half of a BILLION bras sold in the U.S. each year. If every woman recycled a single bra through the B.R.A. yearly (most women, as you witnessed, could recycle 2 – 20 bras!!), that would be approximately a $4,000,000* (million!) dollar donation...EACH YEAR. Of course, if... Continue Reading

This is a repost from The Huffington Post. To view the original post, go to Huff/Post50. As a fashion stylist, one thing that I've experienced with my Post50 clients is that when it comes to style, "no pain no gain" does not apply. In fact, Rita even said to me that sometimes she starts with a comfortable heel and builds her look from there. To be honest, to suffer for style is truly the definition of a fashion victim. Remember that the modern day Post50 woman has been there, done that, and really doesn't need to prove anything. So here are my rules and tips for looking great while feeling ... Continue Reading

An Interview with Joan Rivers: Tips, Trends, & Rules to Live By

Last Reply by lisa carolina 1321345040.133 | in Fashion Talk

I’m sure you’ve already done a little wardrobe updating for the fall and winter seasons. But do you have something cobalt blue? A velvet lace top or jacket? In this interview, our favorite fashion authority, Joan Rivers, shares her industry insight about all that’s in. And, in typical Joan style, she doesn’t hold back in telling me all that’s out. When should you clean out your wardrobe? What are the biggest fashion faux pas women make? Joan tells all.     There’s a reason my “Style File” is called a cocoon sweater (A218997). It wr...

Shoes 101

Last Reply by pantoula 1345423300.077 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Shoes

Remember the entry-level courses you took freshman year — English 101, Biology 101, etc.? Well, the Shoe Shopping with Jane team and the lovely Mary Beth Roe had Shoes 101 recently, and I learned so much in one hour! Led by Jack Aezen of Jack Sprat shoes, the class led us through the manufacturing process of shoes along with a glossary of terms that's so helping me on air! One of the terms that really affects the comfort of the shoe is called "coupling." It's the distance from where the foot hits the shoe to the heel. That changes the pitch of your foot, and why a 4" heel is more comfort... Continue Reading

If the Shoe Fits...

Last Reply by Lady Dee7 1321887489.383 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

“Do you carry that shoe in size eleven”? I’ve asked that question in many, many shoe stores over the years. And more often than not, the answer was “NO”. By the time I was thirteen, my shoe size was ten. You can imagine, as a seventh grader, all I wanted was to wear the same shoes that my “size-six-shoe-wearing friends” wore. But my feet had already out-grown the junior department - and adult shoes were, well... adult. My mother, trying desperately to lessen my disappointment from the shoe shopping experience, decided we should try catalogs. It was th... Continue Reading

My Favorite Song...Il Divo...Sequin Boots Debut...What I'm Being for Halloween...What's Coming to the Q for Christmas...and What Isaac Is Launching in Spring ( Rick Domeier Just Gave Me a Piggyback Ride!)

Last Reply by Satchu 1326061931.473 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

October 26, 2011 Am sitting at my kitchen table playing new Il Divo CD (F09619) that sold out last night. Playing so loud my neighbors may come calling. Track 10 is my absolute favorite song, makes me hopeful, makes me cry. And until the swashbuckling handsome and über-talented Il Divo men performed it live on QVC last night, all I knew about that song was that it's the song from a pasta commercial. I'm hopeless. It's actually called, "Time to Say Goodbye." Oh please pull it up on YouTube and listen to it. As loud as possible. I swear it will give you chills. Imagine listening to it in the m...

Fun Times After Work!

Last Reply by mdjrsg 1320145484.737 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

Hi everyone! So excited to tell you about the last couple weeks. I went to QVC's FFANY Shoes on Sale event at the Waldorf Astoria. It was a great event to bring Breast Cancer Awareness and to collect donations which will be distributed to various cancer research foundations to help find a cure. FFANY shoes on sale has distributed over $35 million and sold over 1.5 million pairs of shoes to benefit breast cancer research and educational programs. Susan could not make it to the event so I took my good friend Kyla, we write a blog together so we figured this would be a great blogging opportu... Continue Reading

The Advantages of a Convertible Handbag? Oh, Let Me Count The Ways!

Last Reply by Vcamacho 1320373621.833 | in Fashion Talk, All About Accessories, All About Handbags

Recently, I attended a meeting regarding the upcoming TSV from Tignanello: Pebble Leather Convertible Shoulder Bag with Braided Accents. Before every fashion-oriented TSV, the designers, planners, buyers, and stylists need to be on the same page regarding styling direction. This is a crucial part of my job at QVC, but I rarely, if ever, take the “it’s my job” approach. When I look at a TSV, the first question I ask myself is “Do I want to buy this?” From there I go to, “Yes, but do I need it?” Then to, “Okay, but will I u...

My Weekly Update

Last Reply by mkm 1319505737.77 | in Beauty Banter, Fashion Talk, All About Accessories

Hi PM Style ladies,   How are you? I had a blast with you last week. At first I was a little bummed about the fact that we were only having a two-hour show, but in a way I do like it when we shorten the show. Sounds crazy, I know, but there’s a faster energy that happens when we know we only have two hours together. Plus, it sure is easier on my feet when we have one less hour.    How cute was the Marc Bouwer cardigan last week? Did you get? I know lots of gals on Facebook were talking about that one. Seems Lisa’s Style File jac...

All dressed up and everywhere to go!

In Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

My son came home from school the other day, walked in the door, and said, “Where are you going?”  Surprised, I said, “Nowhere, why?”  Well, he said, “You’re all dressed up.” Dressed up?  I was not all dressed up.  The thing is, in the past, I really didn’t take as much time to put a nicer outfit together for day to day, but, since I have become a Mackinista, I guess, in Tyler’s opinion, I am dressing up.  What was I wearing?  Bob’s Botanical Shadow Print Pullover Sweater in Grape (A217081).  There a...
