Lynne Curtin… Fashion (Non)Sense

Ex-cast member of the Real Housewives of Orange County and first full-fledged, founding and only member (thus far) of the Stoopid Housewives Club, Lynne Curtin, has finally updated her jewelry and bedding site (http://www.lynnecurtin.com/).  Until recently, Ms. Curtin was only taking pre-orders for her uniquely visionary jewelry line via her site…

Lynne’s jewelry line was being sold at Fred Segel Boutique and Demi Things and probably some other places…  However, Fred Segel is no longer carrying her jewelry line and Demi-Things’ website is down and their last twitter and facebook entries were in July, 2010:  http://twitter.com/demithingshttp://www.facebook.com/pages/demi-things-/160345080889 site:  www.demithings.com.

So, what’s a girl to do when she has her cuff line ready to go and her LA-area retailers have let her down?  You promote the hell out of your expanded line… in addition to cuffs, Lynne also offers earrings, necklaces, handbags and bedding!  Lynne will gift one of her Wonder Woman-inspired cuffs with each order of Lynne Curtin bedding: (http://www.brandedhp.com/lcdbedding.html).

  

The Raquel Collection $289

(Free Cuff!!!)

Also, you go to the people to sell your slew of treasures, you don’t wait for the people to come to you… the people who want to buy your quaintly bizarre junk bangles, gems and frippery.  So, where in the world will Lynne go to sell her wearable doodads objets d’art??  Logically, the locale would be somewhere in California (LA, San Fran, San Diego)/Nevada (Las Vegas, of course)/Arizona (pick a place)… however, Ms. Curtin does not possess that part of her brain which knows the meaning of the word ‘logic’ or ‘logical’ (one of the reasons she is the founding member of the SHC)…

‘Fringe’  $595,  ‘Mini-Fringe’ $325

Lynne will be appearing on March 12, 2011 at Sophistikate in…. wait for it… Bethlehem, PA.  HUH???  Yes, Lynne will be there at 12 and 3 pm only… and if you want to purchase items from Lynne, you will also need to purchase a ticket to do so:

1. What do I want to do on Saturday March 12, 2011?

a) Meet a Super Hot Celeb, a.k.a. Orange County Housewife, Lynne Curtin
b) Have a delicious Emperors Brand Martini or glass of yummy Voga Moscato wine
c) Shop some amazing cuffs, earrings, and accessories
d) Be seen
e) All of the above …

It’s a free country and I wish Lynne and her jewelry line much success…  and if that’s what it takes for Lynne to make a success of her business, then she should puddle jump all over the US and Canada, selling tickets to see her and to sell the hell out of her various goods.

There’s just one teeny, tiny little bit of information that is posted on her promotional content that I needed further explanation, so I gave Sophistikate in Bethlehem, PA a call. In Ms. Curtin’s promo, it states that she is being sponsored by various local businesses and ‘the Real Housewives of Orange County.’  The very nice person I spoke with at Sophistikate was unaware that Ms. Curtin was no longer appearing on Bravo as an Orange County Housewife, but she would bring this to the attention of Sophistikate’s owner.  I told her that I would give her a call back next week to find out what Sophistikate’s owner had to say…  http://www.sophistikatebethlehem.com/images/lynnecurtin.pdf

Lynne will never lose her ‘association’ with RHOOC, but how did she go about being ‘sponsored’ by them for her PA appearance?

Lynne’s before and after facelift photos… just for the hell of it…

It’s too bad that DemiThings went bust… they had a cute video promoting Lynne’s line:
