Gretchen Rossi’s… Website



in heaven, there is no beaute. image source:

YOU GUYS.  I am still hard at work on finishing Strong Looks Better Naked, if only so I can understand what that title effing means, but while casually perusing the web for additional Real Housewives products, I decided to take a gander at former OC housewife Gretchen Rossi’s website.  Under her label (?) Gretchen Christine, she sells basically everything you never wanted.

looks like someone’s web designer found my wish collage from 1998 to use as a banner. image source:

I knew Gretchen sold “make-up,” so I wanted to see if it would be worth ordering any in order (to be honest) to laugh at how bad we all know it would be.  BUT I am also very willing to be proven wrong.  However, after looking at the “items” (and yes, I put that in quotes because HOLY SHIT) Gretch is currently hocking, I would say it’s safe to say that Slade Smiley is still unemployed and these two need a paycheck.

Her website is very confusing.  One would think, perhaps, that she would have two sites 1. her blog and connecting with her fans (?) and 2. her e-commerce site to sell her garbage.  But no, they are instead combined into one big mess of pixilated photos and photoshop fails, and then another one for just shopping?  It is just a hot mess and my UX ambassador husband (user experience, for all of you non-nerds out there) would have an aneurysm if he looked at it.

seriously, don’t go to her site hungover or you will barf. image source:

FIRST UP for purchase: handbags!


“is that a Gretchen Christine bag?” – no one ever. image source:

So, the bags are mostly inoffensive.  The look like Michael Kors knockoffs that you would find at Marshalls on clearance.  HOWEVER.  They are not priced like they are Michael Kors knockoffs you would find at Marshalls on clearance.


oh gretchen.  bless your heart.  image source:

This shit is like $200!  Double-you. Tee. Eff.


Anyway, next up is make-up and make-up “accessories,” whatever that means.  The make-up looks like straight up Wet & Wild shit.  I really want to go whole hog into picking up all the nonsense products Bravolebrities are putting out, but I just can’t spend $22 on what I know will be the worst lip gloss of all time.  Who is buying this stuff? 


yep, I got nothing.  image source:

By the way, “make-up accessories” are one color of nail polish and an ugly make-up bag for $29.

You know how you always look at all your clothes and think, f this, what I really need is a giant black shiny skirt with huge cabbage roses all over it that looks like Robin Sparkles would’ve worn?  No?  Are you sure?  Because you can make your dreams come true for only $149!

let’s go to the mall!  because is scary af. image source:

Jewelry, same shit different day- just imagine if Forever21 suddenly raised their prices 10,000%.


seriously, just burn your money first. image souce:


NOW WHAT I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO SHARE.  So, GCR does actually have a separate online store that sells different stuff than her blog, but there is a lot of overlap.  Also, there is Gretchen Christine and then the Gretchen Christine Collection, and I don’t care enough to try to understand.

BUT.  There is a desk for sale.  Because it is totes on brand.  Because when I think of quality office furniture, my mind immediately goes to this woman:

So imagine my relief when I saw that Gretchen has desks on her site.  FANCY desks. And…

even the books are fake. and I am pretty sure that monitor is just a make-up mirror.  image source:


Wait for it… wait for it…..

IT IS $2300.

PLEASE let me know if you or anyone you know has bought anything from Gretchen!  I would love to hear all about it.
