Tim Gunn Fashion Advice

A few days before I headed out to Nashville last weekend, Alanna showed me there was going to be a fashion show at the Green Hills mall and Tim Gunn was going to be there (I guess you could call him a host). It sounded like tons of fun, so we decided we'd try to get in! Little did we know, we'd get there and snag a pretty decent seat. I assumed it would be crowded and limited seating, but it didn't get crowded until later. Most of the NFW (Nashville Fashion Week) shows are out of our budget, so we were excited to find this free show. They showed looks from Kate Spade, Juicy Couture, and Lucky Brand Jeans. 

Tim Gunn talking about a Kate Spade dress. He pointed out a lot of things in each look, giving advice on how to wear clothes for your body type.  There was some great menswear too! And Tim Gunn is a huge proponent for men tucking in their case you didn't know :) It was actually really informative. I feel like I learned a lot about styles that look good on me, and I was dying over all the pretty color shown! 

I really loved this Kate Spade dress. The color was so pretty, and the diagonal stripes seem like they'd be flattering. Sorry about the crappy photo quality. I used my point and shoot camera and the different light types in there were throwing it off. 

not sure what I'm doing with my right hand...

It was a really fun event! We could have bought stuff from one of the stores and gotten to meet Tim Gunn, but both of us are kind of broke right now, so it wasn't worth it. I settled for getting a picture beside the poster. Snazzy, huh? Also, write this's the first time I ever tried denim on denim. I think it was a success!
