Prior to Jane hosting this show, the show actually featured lovely items. They were not everyday items from QVC. Sorry, not one item featured tonight was what I consider special, lovely or posh.

Where were the Posh Presents??

Where the heck were the posh presents? The Affinity hoops were "posh" and the Joan Rivers taffeta skirt would fall into that category too (since you'd only wear it to a cocktail party or a holiday party). I miss the old days when Lisa Robertson hosted the posh show. Sigh.

Did Jane choose the items for her show tonight?

Was that on tonight? Not sorry I missed it. It was best when Lisa hosted from the park in NYC. Then they moved it to the studio and had the fake party going on in the background. Then Jane, probably the worst choice among them to take it over, appeared to inherit it, and gradually the alleged 'posh' gifts have become more and more mundane. My suggestion would be they either dump this show going forward or they award it to Katrina or one of the other less stale hosts, allowing them to bring back some true glamor, bling and posh to the proceedings.

That's a good idea, Katrina. But tonight it jumped the old shark. They should have just caned it.  It was nothing at all like before.

Let me guess here...did they have any poo pourri in special "holiday fragrances", that can "only be gotten at QVC!" and crystal encrusted ink roller balls to block our your mail info??

 

....sorry I missed that if so... my nail tech and hairdresser are dying to get this year's version. 😉

 

 

Just being snarky, of course. Never actually got into the "Posh" show, at all, before or now, but I do get the point and imagine what it might have devolved to. 🤷‍♀️...if I see that roller ball (I've had them btw, they never covered most things) one more time mentioned as a "practical present people didn't know they wanted but were happy to get"....yea.

Can you imagine getting nose hair trimmers or tooth whitening ampules as a gift? I also think it's crazy to suggest $40 gifts for neighbors, teachers and mail carriers.

Yes, they did seem to give Lisa nicer things to sell.  Maybe it's just a sign of the times - people are more practical now.

I did think of that too. But then...call it a different show. No one cares about "Posh", perhaps, in these "more practical times", and it's not really a post show anymore...so then make it something else! That'd be my thoughts on that.
