The one with the hands busy pulling and grabbing is not a model,  it's Susan Graver.   Watch closely; her hands are never still.   I think that this is an aspect of her presentations that give the feeling of nervous,  frantic energy.   Drives me nuts. 


Oh, I can't stand this either because she always does this interrupting the host during the colors! Ugh, let them get through all the colors Susan... I just don't buy her clothes due to her presentations. I think her bell bottoms are fugly, too.

Re: My pet peeve about fashion presentations

My pet peeve for fashion shows is that more often than not they forget the tall customers.  They can offer petite, regular and plus sizes, but not tall.  They'll suggest that viewers buy both petite and regular lengths, so you can wear different shoes.  Well, what about those that are tall?  Oh, I forgot, they have sizes for everyone, because you can just wear them as capris. We'd all like our pants to fall at the right length, no matter what the style.  Oh, and then there's Susan Graver.  She always harps on about how she knows how the fit is critical, but that must only apply if you are 5'4" like she is (and keeps reminding us at least ten times per hour).

SG drives me nuts with her constant making comments while the host is talking.  I would like to hear what is being said about the garment not amazing etc.  and the gasping like it's the first time she has seen a color. 

 


I really don't like her always commenting on the prices and easy pays. Like easy pays, she goes on and on saying it is unbelievable you can get it home for $9.99. Really, there used to be a time when designers and vendors never talked about price and only the host did that.

I'm always amazed how ROUGH they are with the clothing in stretching it. Recovery just can't stand what they do, and I don't want that item.

I have a pet peeve about the fashion demonstrations and it drives me crazy. Why oh why do the models now pull at their clothes to show the amount of stretch in them? I want to see how the top looks, how it drapes, not that I can pull the sides out 1 foot from my hips. The same goes with slacks. This drives me crazy. I want to see how the item looks on. Thanks for letting me share LOL. 


I know this has been said before but why can't they say what size they are wearing and how tall they are.  Some hosts do like Carolyn but why can't this be part of every presentation.  It's not just Q, Evine it depends on the host.  On HSN they rarely say what size anyone is wearing.


@sunshine 919 they are always in XS! LOL I think Carolyn is the only honest saying she's in size L.

 

But, sometimes online they show a model showing her height and size.


Isn't that the truth.  They are either xxs, or xs. lol
