‘So You Think You Can Sell’ Cat Deeley Bring Vintage Jewelry Line To QVC

June 17, 2010

So this is what Cat Deeley looks like

Cat Deeley, the host of Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” is the latest celebrity heading to home shopping heaven.

She will debut her Cat Deeley Modern Vintage collection this Friday at 4 p.m.

Here’s the spin from QVC:

Inspired by her own vintage jewelry collection, Deeley’s exquisite new line features classic designs that have been updated with bold modern accents that are indicative of the star’s unique style. Signature pieces, including the Tear Drop Chandelier Earrings and Marquise Link Bracelet, embody a more playful look while more understated items, including the Multi-Strand Antique Gold Necklace and Heart Earrings, offer a more sophisticated style.

“The collection really has something for everyone,” Deeley said in a canned statement. “I created each piece to reflect the different sides of a woman’s personality. From fun and flirty earrings to more subdued, classic pendants and necklaces, my new collection is the perfect solution for anyone looking to diversify her look.”

We don’t watch “So You Think You Can Dance,” so we wouldn’t know Deeley if we fell over her.

But QVC tells us that she’s a self-proclaimed “fashionista” (hey, that our handle), and a former model who “is often asked to provide style advice for other young starlets. Hailed as one of the best dressed celebrities in the industry today, Deeley’s decision to create her own collection seems like a natural fit.”

Cat Deeley Modern Vintage Fashion Jewelry will range in price from $39 to $200.

“Cat is the perfect addition to our list of A-list designers,” Debra Puzio, QVC director of merchandising, said in a canned statement. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with her on her exciting new venture.”


Talk About Product Mix: HSN’s $400 Cake Decorating Set and QVC’s $300 Frozen Margarita Maker

May 12, 2010

Cricut a bargain at $400?

Isn’t there a recession? Isn’t that the reason that we, our friends and our family members are looking for full-time jobs? Well, can someone please clue QVC and HSN in about the current economic climate.

Last week QVC had a Today’s Special Value, basically a fancy frozen margarita maker, that sold for $300.

No one but no one loves margaritas more than us, especially those of the prickly pear variety, while sitting in a cabana in Scottsdale. But even if we were fully gainfully employed, we would not blow $300 on a machine that makes those delicious concoctions.

Today, Wednesday, HSN has been dedicating a lot of time, including on entire shore, on the “Cricut Cake bundle.” It allows you to decorate cakes and other baked goods with fancy designs, like a top-of-the line bakery woud do.

Great idea? Well, it looks like you would need a degree from MIT to run this machine. And did we mention the pricetag? It’s a bargain at $400.

We guess QVC and HSN believe that the typical American has money to burn, $300 to $400, on either a machine that makes frozen drinks or one that helps make fancy cakes. What are they smoking in West Chester and St. Petersburg?

HSN Jewelry Vendor Molly Sims And Actor Aaron Eckhart Are Still An Item

March 25, 2010

A couple of months ago we blogged about actress/model Molly Sims, who does the Grayce jewely line for HSN, being an item with actor Aaron Eckhart. Looks like that relationship is still a go.

The New York Daily News writes Thursday that Eckhart made at an appearance at “the launch” of Sims’ jewelry line at Henri Bendel in the Big Apple.

Funny, we thought that her Grayce launched on HSN in November.
