It could be you, do you comparison shop?  I've found great deals on clothes at Costco, Sam's Club, TJ MAXX, Zulily and Amazon. Great quality pieces.  Shoes too, found a gorgeous Bernardo pair on Zulily for $45 currently elsewhere $228.

 

If I do want a particular style shoe in a certain color I will pay retail if that is what is available and suits my needs.

@jcbs    The only way they can have cheaper merchandise is to drastically lessen the quality.  They've already done that somewhat and we don't like it!  I'd rather pay a little more for better quality and buy less.

 

It's not just QVC all merchants have raised prices significantly.  Been to the grocery store lately?

@Kachina624     Speaking of grocery stores....

 

I would NEVER consider buying clothes in a grocery store...but I was walking my cart around the store (for exercise) and wandered into Kroger's ladies clothing department. 

 

Found 2 sweatshirts...REAL (not

french terry),  modern, and not the collegiate style... reduced 86%.   Good enough for "AZ casual"... or in my case....winter sleepwear(!)  di

I agree with the OP. Even Goodwill has raised their prices. We cannot afford GW.

Plenty of places to get reasonably priced clothing or clothing on sale.  QVC is not one of them.

I don't call them outrageous at all.  Lots of places to shop, Try Walmart or Target, Old Navy etc if you want lower priced items.  IMHO, I agree, lesser quality.

 

I'd pay more for something that will last me years instead of one season.

 

I agree with @TheMemphisVette ! 

 

I HAVE clothes....YOU have clothes...none of us are going around nakey!

 

BUT:

 

GAS is outrageous!  That little bit it has gone down, gee, nowhere near what we WERE paying.

 

It is costing me a fortune just to GET to work.  I have to get gas and food....can survive without another sweater (even though I don't want to, LOL) but I can NOT survive with out gas and food.
