Many of us were saddened and shocked to hear about the passing of the comedienne, Joan Rivers, who died at the age of 81 last week. Most people remember her for her snarky remarks, numerous facelifts, and using jokes to tear apart celebrities on E’s Fashion Police–almost as much as she used her unique and hilarious self-deprecating humor. But this funny lady was also a savvy business woman and had numerous collections which can be bought online and are shared on the superstore channel, QVC. In honor of Rivers’ eclectic fashion, her successful fashion businesses, and of course, her “policing” of others’ fashions, we’re going to profile some of her best items that you can buy for yourself. As for critiquing, well, that will always be her thing.
She had no shortage of jewelry on whenever she took the stage. Her over-sized glamour gems could be described as “eye-catching”, but even that term may not do them justice. But not everything she sold was similar to her over-the-top style. For instance, this Crystal Gardenia Bracelet has a feminine pastel pink and gold color scheme, this would make a great gift for a girlfriend, daughter, or hey–why not yourself?
But maybe you do want to stand out. For statement jewelry, the Joan Rivers Collection leaves you with more than enough options. The Jeweled Blossoms Necklace could dress up a plain white tee, add some life to a tailored work-dress, or be a perfect piece to compliment a fun party dress.
Just like she never restricted her jokes to one population, she didn’t restrict her business to only jewelery. Rivers had an extensive fashion, accessories, and beauty selection as well. During her stand-up performances, or how she was styled on television, Joan Rivers was often seen wearing large amounts of sequins, gems, and embellishments. You could steal her flair on a smaller scale with the Lavish Luxury Sequin Scarf which continues to be a best seller.
She knew how to keep it professional too, after all, how else would she have made over $1 billion in fashion sales alone? Try to forget about that number for a minute and check out the chic Long Sleeved Houndstooth Blazer. It comes in a variety of color combinations, though I’m loving the red and black for a preppy Fall look.
We’ll remember Joan Rivers for many things, but if you didn’t know about her fashion, beauty, and jewelry lines, there’s no better time to check out what you’ve been missing.
