Tim Gunn Hosts a Kate Spade & Lucky Fashion Show

Like I mentioned in my favorite things of April and wrote about here, Tim Gunn was in town this past weekend!  He was hosting a fashion show put on by Kate Spade New York and Lucky Brand Jeans.

It was not just any fashion show, he had lots of insight and fashion tips to provide along the way!  Here are a few of my favorite outfits and tips (I put the full load of pics I took on Facebook).

Mr. Gunn and Leah (wearing the Kate Spade Celina dress - so fabulous)

Let the show begin:
Love both these bright dresses!
Tim warns petite women from wearing big prints like this floral dress.
He put to bed that old wives tail that horizontal stripes will make you look wide, and said that this dress and these type stripes would look good on almost anyone (similar dress w/ different colors)!

Two well fitted dresses! Mr. Gunn says, and said multiple times, "try clothes on!" Everything fits everyone differently.  Stretch Cotton Jillian Dress in Sumac (also comes in black) and Sweeney Dress in Black (also comes in white).

Tim Gunn raved about white - for boys and girls!  A great pair of white jeans, for instance is a staple for this spring.  Loving this "Dive In" tee and print blouse, myself.

One amazing Kate Spade trench coat worn two ways. A dressy piece can be worn dressed down. Makes the investment worth it!

A Kate jacket and a Lucky tank intermixed to make 3 outfits.
Neon clutch, white skirt & bold turquoise link necklace (also comes in yellow) help shape these outfits!

Beautiful Statement Necklace with a simple dress (also comes in pink).

Fun dresses can be taken from day to night! The Brittany Dress is the perfect white summer dress and Hana Dress is on trend for color blocking! And can we just take a minute to look at this turf bag (also comes w/o the turf...).  The straw hat is also very cute (and funny).

 Turquoise looks good on almost anyone, Mr. Gunn says.  Light or dark - this is a very versatile color!
Love both this jacket and dress!

A bold jewel tone also is a very flattering color, as this pretty purple dress (also comes in turquoise).
As flattering on most anyone? The wrap dress.  Tim suggests finding a dress that fits well in the shoulders, than the rest is easily customized to your current size - He also adds, this is a good investment if you are in the midst of losing weight!

I have posted a lot more pics to the Tim Gunn Fashion Show Event album on Facebook with their corresponding tips, including maxi dresses and swim suites!  So check there for more tips! Also to come, some video - including Tim Gunn talking about the background of his famous saying, "Make it Work!"
