Make it work!

Nov062010_0064

This weekend I had the pleasure of being in extreme close proximity to one of my favorite TV personalities and fashion consultants-Tim Gunn. For the few who might read this and not know who he is (yes, mom, I know you don’t know who he is.) He’s the chief creative officer for Liz Claiborne and the co-host for one of my favorite shows, Project Runway. He hosted a fashion show at Somerset Mall near Detroit and the place was packed!

I met up with Suze of Miss Vinyl Ahoy and Katelyn of Vogue Vintage. Suze saved me a seat near the runway and I was able to snap photos at a great angle. At the end of the show, there was a question and answer session where he answered every question enthusiastically and candidly. I love how he didn’t shy away from answering questions on his opinions on show contestants and who he thought should have won the last season of Project Runway (he stated clearly Mondo should have been the winner.)

I thought this model was so stunning. I believe she’s dressed in Lucky Brand.

It was so great to see Tim Gunn, Suze and meet Katelyn. Can’t wait to hang out with them more in the future!

    awesome post! good to know Tim and I agree on who should have won.
    I was wondering what all you do with your hair, what you use etc? Maybe you have addressed this before and I just missed it. Anyway, I've got natually curly (but mostly just limp frizzy) hair, and am getting tired of the daily blowdry/flat iron. i'd love to hear what you do, since your hair always looks amazing!

    You're right – that model wearing Lucky Brand is impossibly stunning – and I love the layered plaids! What a great look – and it seems like you had fun!
