We Told You So A Month Ago: Isaac Mizrahi’s Pebble Leather Drawstring Purse Is QVC’s TSV

December 7, 2009

QVC’s new designer, Isaac Mizrahi, has his first QVC Today’s Special Value Monday, a pebble leather purse with accessories.

But if you have been reading our blog, you would have known about this TSV back on Nov. 14, when we wrote about it.

We can’t take all the credit, however. A QVC forum sleuth unearthed the intelligence.

The purse is $200.

As we are seeing, Mizrahi loves bright colors in his purses. We especially love the “cactus,” because it reminds us of Arizona, which we love.

On The Down Low In Tiffany’s: Was That Iman’s ‘It’ Purse We Saw On A Patron?

December 7, 2009

We were in Tiffany & Co. at the Short Hills Mall in Jersey Sunday, just browsing. We spotted a customer carrying a handbag that looked very much like the satchel Iman, David Bowie’s wife, does for HSN.

The Tiffany’s saleswoman complimented the patron on her purse. The customer didn’t anything. We saw the purse’s logo, and it, again, suspiciously looked like the logo for Iman’s Global Chic HSN collection.

Fess up, lady! Admit it was from HSN.

The “It” satchel from Iman goes for $120.

Jessica Simpson Won’t Be Back On QVC Until Tonight After Disastrous Debut At Midnight

October 19, 2009

It looks like singer-actress Jessica Simpson’s debut on QVC last night was such a disaster that she won’t be back on the air until 7 p.m. Monday night, with one of her assistants filling in for her during shows scheduled for today.

Simpson appeared at midnight Monday to kick off QVC’s Today’s Special Value, a handbag from the singer’s new accessories line for the home shopping channel.

But the blonde was inarticulate and awkward when she tried to describe her wares, so much so that QVC brought out Simpson’s mother Tina to help out on-air. Simpson’s poor performance was noted by poster’s on QVC’s online forums, as well as the media.

Simpson, often skewered in the tabloids for her weight and rocky love life, didn’t seem to know much about her merchandise. We hate to say it, but she did seem to be the brightest bulb in the world.

Simpson was slated to appear on another show at 11 a.m., but host Mary Beth Roe announced that the singer would not be able to be back until 7 p.m. Sally Nobody from Simpson’s line, we did not catch here real name, filled in for the singer.

Not a good sign.
