Meeting Tim Gunn (yummy!)
TG:That is a fabulous cardigan! (Fingering it) What’s the label?
S: (Crap! Who is it by? No offense Target, but I hope I’m not wearing Merona today) Thank you. I can’t remember.
TG: Do you mind if I look?
S: (breaking a sweat – I think I remember getting this at Macy*s. Boston Store?)
And with that he went to my side and stuck his hand down my back while he fished around for the tag.
TG: Laura Ashley!
S: Not a floral to be found on it.
TG: And that’s a good thing.
I think those commercials with Martha Stewart are influencing him.
But aside from being a total label wh0re, WYSIWYG. This impeccably dressed man is exactly as portrayed on TV. Tall & handsome, he almost looks like a work of art. He is so congenial too.
I asked him how he happened into the field of fashion, and he said,
“I actually thought I was going to be many other things when I grew up.”
He went through quite a list of jobs, but dreaming of being a pianist and architect came up multiple times. Isn’t it funny how life can bring us around to doing things we’d never dreamed of? He just seems so perfect as a spokesperson.
Yes, these are actually Tim Gunn trading cards this woman’s husband made for her. And Tim signed them.
