    That one top that Express bought? I could wear that :-) (We just don't have the budget right now or I would have purchased it.)

    Darn - missed the show tonight. "Les Miserables" came out on DVD today, so we were watching it with the closed-captioning on to pick up all the lyrics I've missed during the NINE times I saw it in the movies. And all of the bonus features.

    But I am sorry to have missed "Fashion Star."

    Though I'm not normally attracted to peplum's, I sure do like Hunter's...I keep looking at the Express website debating....it is selling for $78. I am so hesitant to buy though. I bought a dress last year, and even went up a size, but it was still to small.

    I wouldn't mind if I could return to store, since there is an Express 2 miles away, but last year, it was an H&M design and it had to be mailed back. No store returns...I guess I could run over to Express tomorrow morning...

    I liked the theme last night. I was surprised the black dress with white flowers was purchased by Macy. Perhaps it looked better in person.

    I could tell that some were going to tank when showed in the work room. The black and red dress was shockingly bad! The reversable sweater for a man got the exact feedback from a buyer that I expected. The material was very flimsy and would cling to a larger man's body and not look good, at all.

    I would love to hear why each item was rejected by all the buyers. This show could easily be 90 mins to 2 hours. I am left wanting more!

    I too would like to hear more critiques. The few we do hear are very helpful. I wish this show were more like Shark Tank where they spend a lot of time analyzing why they will or won't invest in someone's business. I've learned a lot about how businesses are created and run, especially the mindset needed to have a successful business from listening to those analyses. I would love to learn a lot more about the design industry and the thinking of the individual designers in an orderly way, not in the brief random snippets we get now.

    I love the top and the coat dress with the flowers. However, it sounded like size 12 was their plus size, and that is not my size. While I can't afford them, I'm still tempted to go online and look.

    ETA: the top at Express is sold out (duh) though the A-line dress (black w/white flowers) at Macy*s is still available in size 14-24. The dress is priced at $115 and the top at $40.

    For larger sizes, Express goes the L, XL route (which is hard to guess without fitting) while Macy*s goes with the actual numbers as mentioned above.

    I,too, loved the tunic. I'm a size 8 but I thought it was extremely flattering for both models. I also liked the men's cardigan but it wouldn't look good on a paunchy guy. I liked it though.

    I really didn't like any of them this week. If I had to choose one, it would have been the one with the cowl neck- I think it suited both sizes. The red and the black? nope thought it was ugly and I don't like the peplum. I thought that was last year. The black dress with flowers. ugly! in both sizes.

    I didn't like any of Nicole's designers that tree dress was
