@Another new name Sue I agree the too much fabric in the front won't work for me. I find it gets in the way of me doing things.

 

I don't want to bash it because it may be wonderful for some people but not for me.

These cheap items shed like crazy and the material is cheap.  If you look carefully with the magnifier above those ridiculous (and uncomfortable cuffs) you can see that there are bare spots on the fabric.  Just like last year's mess except maybe not quite as ridiculously oversized.  Haven't purchased ANYTHING from the Q in over a year because of the lack of quality.

Bumblebee because they fly even though they shouldn't be able to (true grit, perseverance etc.).


Isn't that Joan Rivers symbol and reason behind it?

I guess many of you don't like the sherpa's.  I ordered one.  I love mine from last year.

@NYwoman  Yes.  When Jill first introduced this new brand of hers on her social media, she used the exact same story Joan used about the bee doing what it's not supposed to be able to do -- the entire story, almost word for word.  

 

There was apparently an uproar among some online that she stole that image and marketing from Joan Rivers.  I saw quite a few posts complaining about it on Instagram alone.  

 

Jill went into her "bee" intro once or twice when she first introduced the line on air, but no more than that.

 

Since the Joan Rivers line is still on QVC, and Joan is indeed an icon here, it seems QVC or Jill thought better of her continuing with that sales spiel.

 

I know no one owns that bee story, but since it was so popular here by Joan and her bee pins, I don't see how Jill could have thought that was a smart name to choose.

 

The "Bella" portion is the name of her stepdaughter.

Please lord, stop me from buying another big and fuzzy top! I already have too many and they don't fit very well in my tightly-packed closet. Woman Frustrated
