I never thought I’d find myself watching QVC (except when Joel McHale pokes fun at it on The Soup), but there I was watching the shopping channel intently this afternoon to see Rachel Zoe, Hollwood stylist and star of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, unveil her accessories line.
Not surprisingly, the line is filled with signature RZ fabrics and styles — faux fur, faux leather, sequins, and plenty of statement jewelry.
Photos of some of the items leaked in early September, but seeing those pics was nothing compared to watching Zoe on TV just “dying” over everything. If it were anyone else hawking their products, I would’ve been turned off by the gushing, but Zoe is a proven fashion lover, so it seems more genuine.
Of all her creations, Zoe was most bananas over the jewelry. Some of the pieces are fun, but overall, it’s a lot of yellow gold and clinking that’s not really my thing. Though I have to say, I totally want the sequined knit beret in black — like the one she wears on the show, but much cheaper at $26! I once saw Zoe standing outside the Waverly Inn in New York City, wearing said beret, and it was fab-u-lous.
As for the rest of the line, which includes a lot of coats and scarves, I can only think of a few people who can pull off a faux-fur toggle coat with a wing collar, but clearly demand is beating supply, because many of the items have already sold out.
What do you guys think of the line? Did anyone else find themselves “stumbling” upon QVC to watch RZ?
