When I worked full time I purchased lots of clothes both on QVC and other places. I did not question the price.

 

Today, however, things are different. I am retired (oh, how I hate that word) and have plenty of clothes.  Not to mind the prices are over the top.

 

So I now browse the "as is" items on free shipping days.  What a savings if you find an item you love in your correct size. Even if you do not buy it is fun to look.

@sugarbee I bought several things this weekend - 4 I think, really good prices (some lunchtime specials) and I used the free shipping code that was sent to me.  I have plenty of clothes too.  But if I want to stop buying, I have to stop looking.  I am really good at convincing myself that I need something.

@sugarbee    I completely agree!  I'm home a lot of the time too.  In the summer I dress very casual unless going to the dr, beauty shop, or stores lol.  

Even when I was working, I'd never spend a lot of money on my summer clothing.  I was fortunate enough to be home most of the summer, so I wore cut offs and tanks for the most part.

I have always tried to get good deals with clothes, I worked with computers so nobody cared how I dressed.

 

I love the word retired!  I worked many years to enjoy this phase!

I love fashion ans clothes but there is no way I would buy QVC clothes because of the Quality, funny styles and prints and I don't buy into their claims of fabulous prices.

@KKlimBecause I loved working and getting dressed up to go out and meet the challenges of the day. If I was physically able I would still be working.

I too am retired and these days I find the best deals on QVC clothes on e-bay.  If I see it on QVC I search e-bay using the description and some times item number.  A lot of times I find the item at a huge discount.

 

There are 2 or 3 sellers that use pictures of QVC models and have tons of stuff.  Also, I only order from high rated reputable sellers.

 

I don't need to buy much so I do not want to pay higher QVC prices.

@Susan345  I find so many great items on eBay, since I have champagne tastes on a beer budget, I can get the labels I like inexpensively☺️

I don't buy many pants from QVC but my daughter is getting married this weekend. I ordered some Susan Graver pants for the rehearsal dinner, they ran huge!!! I could have ordered two sizes down from my brick and mortar size.

 

I will try to make them work its too costly to return.
