I agree! Very good posting!

Just can not get into buying garments I can't try on, or feel the quality of between my fingers.
Every now and then I see something, and think to myself, "I wouldn't mind trying that on". But I can't, so I've never purchased.

I just shudder when I see the prints..I start thinking of tablecloths and curtains. I want the clothes I buy to say:

"powerful" "feminine" "elegant" "memorable personal style" and "subtly sexy"

When I was heavier, I purchased some stuff from them...mainly cropped pants and stuff.

Even the celebrity lines seem to be not that attractive when they are featured on QVC.

I def think they are appealing to a certain age/type of person.

I never bought from there but some things seem rather ok looking like:

http://www.qvc.com/Attitudes-by-Renee-Long-Sleeve-Convertible-Dress-Dresses-Dresses-&-Skirts-Fashion.product.A237089.html?sc=A237089-Targeted&cm_sp=VIEWPOSITION-_-14-_-A237089&catentryImage=http://images-p.qvc.com/is/image/a/89/a237089.001?$uslarge$

Any age could wear that. The hemline may need to be adjusted a bit for body type, height or preference.
Seems like any other department store to me but more on the conservative side.

I'm not a fan of their fashions. I've seen clothing and accessories that I like on HSN, but not QVC.

I haven't seen anything I had to have, but then I don't spend a lot of time watching QVC either. But from personal experience, I can see something on the rack that I love and when I try it on, it doesn't look good at all. So I would never expect to be able to buy clothes online. The exception is when I have already bought something and know the size I like and just want it in a different color.

I have bought shoes online - but not from QVC. I saw some slip on shoes on either QVC or HSN one time and they were sparkly and I swear looked like Michael Jackson shoes. People really buy those?

QVC is not the only retailer that sells prints. Prints are big right now. Is there another reason you don't like QVC?

I think it's more the type of prints that are usually featured on QVC.
