First of all, go here and take a look. Her line is about twelve items. Whatever. Nene is a big girl. I felt like I might betray you all and want to buy something. Sue me. I am shopping. It’s also very late at night. I am very tired and well leave me alone I am dying of cherries . As soon as I saw that picture above I was in. I want that top. All fat chicks want that top! Where can I buy that Nene by Sheree top?
Well not on HLN. Of all her 12 items… the banner ad for her site is not featuring any of that top. Why? Well because they all suck.
Her pleather jacket has a cute design, but crappy pleather fabric. It’s K-Mart. Isn’t that her brand?
The stand out for me is the gray (comes in other colors) duster. It looks like a great piece to have on a plane. As a frequent (at one point in my life) traveler, a long jacket that works as a duster is a great travel piece. And it is in a great travel material. (as long as the plane doesn’t crash, it’s flammable, but if you are going down, you are going down) and I love she has it in gray. Nene is a fan of gray and I have seen her called an elephant in some of her expensive gray outfits, but I love them and It is much better than wearing purple when you are fat, because then you just look like Barney. Don’t ask me how I know this. I SAID DON’T ASK!
Okay, you thought it was about me, didn’t you. I worked at a Historically Black College for a while in my teaching career. There were “required faculty meetings” (which I hated) and my school was a religious institution and there were “required church services ” every Tuesday (I think) which I LOVED. Just like with most church services in the south the sinful teens sat in the balcony and the good kids sat downstairs. One day as I was sitting in the balcony , a these two very large girls referred to an unfortunately dressed female co-ed as “Barney” for dressing in all purple. A very quiet assault occurred in the balcony resulting in Barney having a seat below with the pious people. That was probably my favorite job ever. I was fresh out of grad school, I was department head, I had lots of friends including Mr. Salley who was younger than me but I always called him that (religious) who I would go to lunch with sometimes in a neighboring town for BBQ. He had the best laugh and found me hilarious and prayed for my very soul often.
Anyway, what were we talking about? I say being a gray elephant is much better than looking like Barney so I am a fan of Nene’s use of gray. It really is one of my favorite colors when I can get it. I also like the faux leather jeggings. Shut up, I do! unfortunately I am not sure what the back looks like. I would pair them with the top on the header that apparently is not hers.
Overall, it’s just shit you would find on the K-Mart racks from the 90s back when out K-Mart got run out of town by Wal*Mart. Her sweatpants are $50? really? lol And they are banded at the ankles. WTF?
Tell me what you think? Your mileage may vary.
