Breezy's Recap: The Style Network definitely leaves something to be desired! I watch maybe one show on the entire network (Tia and Tamera) and I will probably only be watching 1 new show (Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous). I do not know what it is with Style i am always hesitant to try any shows on the network. Any recommendations? What show do you watch on style? what show should I watch on style? Let me know what you think in the comments,

  1. Keep the Party Moving sounds like a great concept. Would love to see that come to fruition.
