Today was an AWESOME Day!

Today, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Tim Gunn. He was so genuine and friendly I wish our meeting could have been longer. My mind and thoughts are still scrambled but I do remember him saying “Your outfit is darling!” And I responded that it was all from Anthropologie! I was happy I was able to go with my girlfriend Catalina. It made the experience so much more fun.

Cata and I had a light lunch and then were able to find two seats together on one side of the runway. It rained off and on all day but we were lucky enough to only have it drizzle while we were waiting. It never rained through the show or the Q&A which was directly after the fashion show. Lucky Brand picked a few “regular” people to be models. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to go to the casting call due to a long work day.

After the Q&A it was time to get in line to meet Tim Gunn. If you made a purchase at Lucky Brand throughout the week over $100 you were able to wait in line and get a picture with Tim along with a signed copy of book Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making it WorkAgain, unfortunately we didn’t realize A LOT of people got in line directly after the fashion show so we were way towards the end of the line. It turns out we were around the 2-hour wait part of the line. He was supposed to leave at 3:30 but there were still at least 100 people waiting so he said he was going to stay until he saw everyone.

We were also able to get a pack of his Holiday cards that Carol posted about here. We were one of the lucky ones to get a copy of his book. They did not realize the amount of people to show up so those towards the end were going to have their picture taken but be mailed their autographed copy of the book. When I met Tim we chatted briefly, he complimented my “darling” outfit, auto-graphed the book, snapped the pic, hugged and shook hands and we were done. It was so fast I’m surprised I remember it all.

Here are a few pics. I also saw Pam from Over 50 Feeling 40 but didn’t get to meet her. She was one of the Lucky ones to ask Tim a question.

Waiting for the show to start!

Tim Gunn does wear jeans! Lucky Brand jeans to be exact.

Isn’t he just dashing?

Afterwards I stopped by Anthropologie to show off my outfit. Hi girls!!!

Such an amazing day! Hope yours is just a great!

    I really love your outfit. No wonder he called it darling. It's so pretty, and a beautiful color combination.
