Holiday HSN Collections: Mariah Carey and Luxe by Irina Shabayeva

There seems to be no end in sight or at least website for celebrities licensing their names to budget fashion collections.  Tonight Mariah Carey enters the budget arena with her collection of jewelry, fragrances and high heeled shoes on HSN.   The collection is not cheap, so if you like it, you may want to wait  a while.  The charm necklace is approximately $200.00.   The piece I like the best is the Pavé Crystal Butterfly 23-3/4″ Necklace, but it’s almost $150.00 at the event price.  That’s a little too much for me to spend on Mariah labeled goods.

I think some of these prices will be reduced. Just a hunch.  I can’t even begin to talk about the horror of the Mariah Carey shoes from the HSN collection. These should not even be in production.  The black boots with the fake Chanel chain look are like a Medusa.  Don’t look at them too long.  Ditto the suede platform boots with “peep toe.” What were they thinking at HSN?  Just because Mariah has had some big hits, it doesn’t mean that tasteless fashions can be sold via her branding.

Check out the HSN Liza collection, now on the clearance racks.  Mariah’s shoes should be so lucky I would say they are more Pariah, than Mariah:) Bring back Liza!  I still smile when I think of Liza on HSN.  I wish she would return to the Home Shopping Network.  That was entertainment.  I loved her fashion tips and stories! :)

A more promising collection on HSN is the newly launched  Luxe collection by  Project Runway‘s Irina Shabayeva. The collection features some great outerwear with Irina’s classic Russian Winter touches like faux fur collars, wrap sweater with lovely rosettes and coats with fur trim at the cuffs or the hems.  The collection look luxurious enough for a Tsarina, but the prices are reasonable.   I like the wrap sweater for under $100.00. Be sure and read the reviews before you order on HSN.  They always help me!
