• SHOP 'TIL YA DROP 3!

    WELCOME TO THE NEW, BUT HOPELESSLY UNIMPROVED—>

    ‘SHOP ‘TIL YA DROP 3’ THREAD

    Since HSN’s shutdown of the Forum, March 6-2017, (for so-called ‘Improvements’), it seems my ‘SHOP ‘TIL YA DROP 2’ Thread was surreptitiously included in what to throw out the Forum Window.

    Moderator Sarah informed me of the deletion and suggested I start a new Thread. Not to be discouraged, I took her advice, and, here it is… in all its grossly encumbered, undignified glory.

    screaming

    But, remember peeps, when the going gets Tough, (and it’s Tough on the HSN Forum now), the Tough go shopping!

  • SUNDAY, APRIL 9-2017… Just because I haven’t been participating on the Forums, doesn’t mean I haven’t been shopping.

    • I REALLY LIKE ALL THAT YOU ARE SHOWING… ONE OF THE STORES IS THE ONLY PLACE I CAN SIT AND HAVE THEM BRING THE CLOTHES BROUGHT TO ME! THAT IS SO NICE WHEN U CAN NOT DO IT FOR YOU SELF. THANK YOU @FAIEREMADEN. MY POUNDS WENT DOWN AGAIN.

  • Hi @fairemaiden so nice to see you and the shop thread! I just started posting a bit yesterday.

    Not much has changed, biggest gripe I have is the tiny script. I can’t stand to squint and even with my readers it becomes difficult after while. Is it so hard to change font??

    Anyway I have been shopping as well. Waiting for pictures to upload once more so we can all once again share our purchases or “the damage” as I like to call it. 😉 I’m not going to an outside place to post some pic’s.

    I love the blue bag and the matching blue crochet cap with flower. Very Spring…. it’s adorable! 🙂 🙂
    Let us know how it turns out!

    • @florida3216 I haven’t tried to post any pictures in the new forum but I’m guessing it has all changed. I have really shopped my heart out the past couple of weeks, but then I always do 🙂 I was tired of all the winter colors in my closet and didn’t have any spring/summer colorful things since my weight loss. Slinky got a lot of my business. My only complaint is her tee’s are so thin. I did buy a bunch of her jackets to wear over them but sometimes I want to just wear the tee shirt by itself. I hate seeing the outline of my pant’s waist through the material. I wonder if that is just a thing of mine or if other people feel that way, too?

    • @pamlou I have not been impressed by the Slinky tops I have ordered. Another designer whose tops have thin material is Giuliana. Me no likey!

    • @pamlou,
      IF YOU DOUBLE THE T’S THAT SHOULD HELP, IF NOT ADD A LIGHT TOP. AT MY AGE I AM NOT WANTING TO FIT IN IF U UNDERSTAND.

    • Hi, Florida… good to see you too. Actually, I bought the Cap in two different colours. One is Lilac with a Purple Flower; the other in Stonewash with a Navy Flower. She just didn’t have those colours in Pics.

    • Florida… I got the Blue Handbag and it’s not the beautiful Blue as pictured… it’s Turquoise! lots of green in it. Back it goes, *sigh*.

    • Too COOL for school, fbn!

    • @fbn135

      I have got to learn how to do that!!! LOL!

    • HI SHEBA2011!!!

    • FBN135 I WILL RACE U W/ MY SCOOTER…

      I AM SURE YOU WILL WIN
      BUT I WOULD LIKE TO TRY TO HAVE SOME FUN. LOL:–)

  • @fairemaiden! I had just posted a day or two ago, wondering where your Shop Til You Drop thread was. I wanted to tell you I bought an Anuschka wallet and purse. I had to laugh when I saw what you said about not participating didn’t mean you weren’t shopping. I think I am becoming a shopaholic in the worst kind of way. I love your purchases. Evidently losing weight didn’t uglify your arms like it did mine (uglify–I made up that word :)) I am so glad to see you back.

    There are several things I miss about the old forum. I liked it when it showed who the last poster on a thread was instead of just the person who started the thread. That way I knew if somebody new had posted. I miss the ranks and the smiles. Oh well, out with the old, in with the new.

    • @pamlou What are the item numbers of your Anuschka purchases? I would love to see!

    • Pammy… I’ve got flabby arms… I just don’t care! At 64, I am what I am. I don’t let it stop me from wearing the clothes I love, and, in the Summer heat, people can just jam it if they don’t like what they see! *lol*

      The Anuschka line is gorgeous. I’m sure you’ll be more than happy with your purchase.

      As for the Forum, there’s not one thing I like about it.

  • @fairemaiden I was very upset when I could not find your previous thread the other day. Thank u for starting a new one for us! I love seeing and hearing about everyone’s fashion purchases. I have really missed u, Faire! I see u have made some excellent purchases lately! 😉

    I just got this MarlaWynne Reversible Duster in XS Black/Sand on clearance for $9.95. This Liz Lange tank was on clearance and has sold out. I am very happy w both items – good quality at looow prices!! I can’t remember the last time I bought clothing at full price. It makes up for my skincare addiction, LOL.

    Here I am raw – no makeup, hair, nails or self-tanner. I haven’t been in any kind of sun in 3 months, as I am trying to be healthier. It takes some getting used to.

    • Hey, kemi… I was pretty disgusted with the deletion of the STYD-2 thread. You scored some great deals! As for sans makeup, hair, etc., you’ve got great bone structure, lass, always a pretty face. Yeah, get healthy!

    • @kemiqueen

      Very nice as always.

    • KEMMIQUEEN U LOOK GREAT! I WENT TO THE DOC’S WITH A LOT OF CLOTHS TO BOOSTS THE SCALE.. IT READ ERROR! AND STILL YOU SEEM BETTER OFF W/ XS. WTG!

    • @jshine

      I was surprised that MarlaWynne’s XS dusters fit me after hearing about how large her line runs. Maybe this item is an exception. The price dropped to $7.95 today, so I got a price adjustment on each of the two colors I have. 😀

      I am concerned for u after reading that ur still shrinking. I hope ur ok! H&M has a really cute spring collection for teens and kids. I have had a good experience ordering from their online store. Their prices are low, and they always have free shipping offers. U might want to check it out! 🙂

  • EARLIER I POSTED HI FAIRE NICE TO SEE YOU BACK LIKE YOUR TASTE IN CLOTHES . MY POST DISAPPEARED . BUT ITS BACK AFTER A REDO . I SEE A PINK BANNER ERROR YOUR REPLY CANNOT BE EMPTY . DO DO DO DO .

    • loaf… good to see you too. This place is insane; I can hardly stand coming here anymore.

  • MONDAY, APRIL 10-2017… Just bought a Madi Claire handbag in Burgundy; a colour which I desperately needed.

    purse EVINE

  • @fairemaiden

    Love everything especially this bag from Evine.

    I have never watched a show on Evine yet.

    Good to see you back Faire.

    • Thanks, Sheba… good to see you too. I can’t really say I’m back as I can’t stand the disastrous ‘improvements’ made to the Forum now. *sigh*

  • Faire, the old thread is still here. I can search and see posts from STYD2. On Friday I noticed at the bottom of the main page instead of page 1 of xxxx it changed to 1 of 6. We can no longer bring up threads by searching for them and now we can’t even scroll to find them. It’s there but out of reach! Another “enhancement” *sigh*.

    • Velvet… I asked the Mods where the Thread was and they couldn’t find it either, even looking at the back-end on their end. It’s too exhausting to try and figure-out what’s what with this new system. I’m shocked they didn’t test this mess out before they made the switch. Geez. I’ve noticed that HSN Dave has disappeared after promising even greater improvements to come. When was that? Some two to three weeks ago? UGH, it’s all such an aggravation. Needless to say, I’ve been shopping elsewhere.

      I watched ‘The Velveteen Rabbit’ the other day… it always makes me cry. I thought of you thru the whole movie! ‘It’s LOVING that makes us real’. Och, I need to get another tissue now.

    • I love the book and the movie too, such a wonderful message. Thanks for thinking of me!

      Yep, it will be 3 weeks tomorrow since we have heard from anyone at HSN about this calamity called a community. Dave and Brianna have been online here every day during the week and still crickets. I’m not going to let that thread drop into oblivion, I will keep bringing back up until we see some changes or at least a timetable with changes.

  • Faire, I am truly happy to see you back for however long you can stand being here. I, too, have been shopping elsewhere and only coming here once of twice a day generally. I love the items you bought and I’m sure they’ll look great on you. Take care.

  • Just wanted to say that today I received my jewelry from Evine and it was beautiful, I’m very happy with it but an additional bonus was the beautiful boxes it came in. You could actually put a bow on the box and give it as a gift. I’m very impressed.

    • @harikari the only thing I have ever looked at on Evine is their Anuschka purses. I guess I’m not used to their presenters and products because they just look weird to me. I felt the same way about HSN at first, too, because I was such a good QVC customer. The rest is history, as they say. Who sells pretty jewelry on Evine? Are their prices comparable to HSN? Oh, I did watch Paula Deen on EVine for a couple of minutes. Her things are cheap! Usually well known celebrities sell their things high.

    • @harikari That’s awesome gf!! Way to shop!! Don’t u just love when u open a purchase and feel appreciated as a customer!! HERE, they just slap it in a soft envelope, jammed in w the invoice. When I open a box from Sephora, I love the tissue and abundance of free samples. 😀

  • Hi Pamlou, I was a QVC shopper and I am exclusive HSN now. I keep seeing post from FairieMaiden (Thanks Fairie) seems to be tempting me like vapors to go and see (and buy). Seems like I will be taking a walk (or should I say BUY) on the wild side. On my tombstone, she shopped and dropped.

    • @pamlou @jupiterandjo5 I was a QVC shopper before coming to HSN too. I still shop there on Auto-Delivery, but I watch HSN much more and shop HSN much more. I tried to get into Evine and just couldn’t, so I’m glad I can hear about the great stuff they offer from the ladies here. 🙂

    • LOL @jupiterandjo5. I’m afraid mine will say the same thing. I really do need to quit watching and recording HSN for awhile. I have lots and lots of clothes and jewelry and beauty products. I don’t need anything else. Alas, Heidi and Joan will be on this month.

  • Well I just finished my post and pressed post and my post disappeared for the second time today. Faire, just stopped by to tell you how much I love your new lavender handbag…so difficult to find lavender.

    Sorry about STYD 2…it’s so frustrating…it’s too much trouble to post much and I’m tired of signing in repeatedly. Also forgive me for being so negative…it’s not becoming but it is what it is. Surely improvements are on the horizon.

    • Hey Snow! It’s good to see u. 😀

    • The 3rd time is the charm…finally posted after telling me there was an error and asking if I really wanted to do this. You know what I mean…I’m not the only one getting the runaround here. Be back later. Going to the arcade. Done, done, done…

    • Hi, snow… good to see you. Thanks re: the handbag. I’m hoping it’s more mauvey than lavender… we’ll see. Don’t apologize for the negativity… my opening statement is pretty negative, but not for no-good-reason! This place is ridiculous now… I keep having to Sign-In and keep getting that god-awful Pink Error statement as well. Geez. What they’ve done is practically a crime against humanity. At least for the humanity that makes up the Community Forum!

  • @fairemaiden, glad to see you and the other regulars on the community. 😃😃😃!!!!! This forum is so depressing, i use to love to read the conversations and see the pretty pictures and this is just sad. ☹️I haven’t been shopping HSN lately and i don’t know 🤷‍♀️ if i will continue to be a customer. 🤔 i feel like i am being bullied or treated poorly for some unknown reason. i have been a very good customer of HSN over the years. Maybe they can afford to treat good customers in such a manner. Maybe that is what they really want no loyalty, they sure do dish that out on us. 🍽

    • Hi, Luv… Yeah, it’s VERY depressing here anymore. I don’t know WHAT they were thinking when they put this new system into use. Needless to say, the MODS have to stay positive about it– promising further, ahem ‘better’, changes, but, they’ve gotten so many complaints, I don’t know how much longer they can keep-up the mask of ‘It’s FUN here’, cuz it sure ain’t FUN for us members. *sigh*
