My "quickie" with Tim Gunn

A few weeks ago, my friend Melisa (@melisaw) and I met at Anderson's Bookshop in downtown Naperville for a book signing with Project Runway's Tim Gunn.  I've watched Project Runway since the first season (the 10th season is currently airing), and I have always admired Tim's mentoring of the contestants....more

Dear Tim Gunn, Does It REALLY Matter What Size Her Dress Is?

Dear Mr. Gunn,May I call you Tim?  You can call me Audrey.   I figure the less formal we are, the better chance I have of being able to convince you that there is a real person underneath the additional 200lbs I'm carrying, and worry less about what double-digit dress size I am....more
It's not just men who doubt size and then say oh but she's gorgeous. No. I hear women say it all ...more

Project Runway recap: The WTFinale

You may notice this recap is late in coming. You may notice it's not going to be the usual blow-by-blow, moment-by-moment, outfit-by-outfit recap that I usually try to write. You may notice I have trouble saying anything at all about this year's season finale. Image courtesy Lifetime And all of that is because I still cannot wrap my head around the outcome. And I know I'm not alone. ...more

And yes, I always prefer the nice designers to the dramatic ones :)

Project Runway Recap: The Final Four

I seriously want to kick some people in the shins right now, namely: Mondo and Michael's parents. With $9000 to spend, 6 weeks to work and 10 pieces to build, the final four of Michael, Mondo, Andy and Gretchen get to work. and Tim sets off to visit them each in their home town. So, yes, we kick off with Tim getting to go to Hawaii to visit Andy. ...more

Project Runway Recap: Who from the Top 5 Is Going to Fashion Week?

[Author's Note: I missed recapping last week's Project Runway, due to BlogHer Food, but once I watched it on my TiVo I couldn't resist recapping all the drama, even if a week late, over on my personal blog. If you're interested, you can read it here.] Here we are in the eleventh hour, and I have to confess that the only thing I still care about is Mondo and MIchael's unlikely friendship. Can they get their own show instead of Austin and Santino? ...more

and was freaking out that I missed your post somewhere! :)

I was suprised by the April love ...more

Tim Gunn Helps Those with Psoriasis

I’m a huge Project Runway fan.  I realized that I’ve actually seen every episode of every season except for the very first episode of the first season of the show.  I think this season of the show has turned out to be one of the best, and ...more

Project Runway Recap: The Top 8 and the $20,000 Eyeshadow

This week's episode starts with all the boys moving in together. This makes Andy very happy, since he's been "alone in a room with Michael C. for a while now", and he's really glad to have people around that he "trusts". Seriously. I liked Andy in the beginning, but in his own super-subtle way, he is the cattiest one of all!! Andy, honey, I can assure you: Michael doesn't trust you either. (I guess I don't have to call him Michael C. now, since Michael D. is gone, so he'll be just Michael from now on.) ...more

Project Runway Recap: Jackie Kennedy's Camel Toe

"I do not think 'Jackie O.'s style' means what you think it means." This week the designers had what should have been a fairly straightforward challenge, and came up empty-handed. Perhaps after weeks of having to act excited about calling people like Kristin Bell and Selma Blair "style icons" they just didn't know what to do with a real one, namely: Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

This week was a perfect example of fabric choice making or breaking an outfit. Mondo's choice ...more
