Re: SHARK LIFT-AWAY TSV Coming up....

In For the Home Talk 1423793261.153

Love my Shark Lift-Away Professional vacuum! It outperforms my older Oreck vacuum hands down! Granted the Oreck is lighter weight and easier to carry upstairs to do the family room. But as the owner of a Pembroke Corgi dog who sheds all year long (worse, yes, in the spring), the Shark picks up a ton of loose hair. This is the best investment I ever made in a vacuum and would do it again if needed. By the way, when our daughter in college moved into her apartment we bought her a similar but smaller Shark vacuum to use. Anyone who's on the fence should get this because you will be amazed!

Re: Fashion Items Continuing to Increase

In Fashion Talk 1423691581.05

Thanks to all of you who answered my posting! Good to see I'm not alone in what I've been observing, too. One thing I forgot is that I like the fact Louis Dell'Olio of Linea will write in his blog as well as say online from time to time that the cost of manufacturing a certain piece in a particular fabric has increased or that not everyone will like a style or color depending on her shape or need in lifestyle. That to me is a compliment from a well-known designer who recognizes the wisdom of the buyer. Then there are those other vendors who practically shout on television that everyone "mu...

Fashion Items Continuing to Increase

Last Reply by luvshopping 1423850951.83 | Started by InStitches49 in Fashion Talk

Perhaps it's just that I'm retirement age and notice costs more than I did when working, but to me it seems that many of the fashion brands have increased quite a bit over the last year or so. In fact some of the items have jumped five dollars or more just in the past months. And somehow it seems this coincided with the "new" shipping rates and policies. I'm not afraid to buy Linea as I know the pieces I get are typically classics and well-made. Sometimes I'm not sure about sizing and hesitate there especially when no measurements are provided. But Susan Graver and LOGO (which I haven't bo... Continue Reading


Re: Did anyone just hear what Shawn said about Monday nights?

In Q News 1423539192.82

From my own viewpoint, I'm not interested in watching QVC much anymore at all. Monday nights may have been a little repetitious with Lisa's constant chatter about how wonderful each item was but there was humorous banter between her, the vendors, and the models which sometimes broke the ice, so to speak. Now PM Style or whatever replaces it is just boring to me. And with the new shipping/handling and the dropping of click here sizes, well, looks like I'm through buying a lot of clothing and other items on QVC. Continue Reading

Wasn't looking or listening but that tee could be (1) vintage--as he uses older Linea pieces or (2) sneak peek of something coming later in Linea. Continue Reading


Re: If you need to return items do it before Feb 17

In Linea 1423461715.443

I've always been selective about ordering only Linea pieces that I need in sizes that I'm pretty sure will fit me. Still I've had to return several over the years just because the sizing was off enough to warrant not keeping them and exchanging them for a better size (if even available). Now I'm really going to limit what I buy and with even a question about the size in my mind I probably won't risk it. One other thing I've noticed already on some items is that the price has increased recently evidently in an effort to "recover" the cheaper shipping and handling. That's really deceptive ...

Re: What do you think of new shipping rate policy?

In Linea 1422999221.3

My first reaction is that this will limit my buying clothing even from Linea even more. While most of the time I know what size I wear there have been, and will continue to be probably, those few items which are a question mark until I get them and try them on. And this is not just in sizing but also in color choice. I will not buy makeup anymore nor any other brand of clothing which most of the time is too high for the quality anyway. Sorry for QVC but this will just about kill what I buy here for sure. Continue Reading


Re: Live From Westchester, PA It's the 6PM LDO Show!!

In Linea 1422660014.023

Although I love the one time only jacket, I have to make budget choices and once I saw the striped sweater sneak peak I cancelled the jacket to save some dollars for that striped sweater which I know I'll wear more often. If I had unlimited buying dollars, well, I'd get one of everything most likely! Continue Reading


Re: Why I'm Passing on IT TSV

In Beauty Banter 1421798921.457

I ordered the TSV but cancelled this morning after realizing I really didn't know what shade would be best because the fair and light were never shown either on television or online as far as I can tell. I also thought that the cost for what I would get was too much. Now I've used the IT foundation before and usually like the resulting look. However, this time I was very frustrated with the repetitious statements and the constant scrubbing of the face to "reveal" redness, not to mention the lack of showing all the colors on the skin and on various models. Instead I went to Ulta today and g... Continue Reading


Re: It Cosmetics TSV review (and more)

In Beauty Banter 1421532274.417

If you were talking about the shades in the upcoming TSV, I see "Fair" as a choice as well as "Light." Usually I get the "Light" because too often the "Medium" is a little bit more yellow than I am naturally. I believe Jamie usually says the "Fair" is for porcelain skin that burns easily in sunlight. I just wish when they show the products that someone would actually show a good shade chart without faces--just strips showing the base coloration of each shade. Continue Reading
