Mad Men Mini: Perks - Tim Gunn's Guide to Style

I realize not everyone is into 60s fashion, so how about a fashion guide for today's women?

Tim Gunn is my fashion guru (unbeknownst to him). Influenced by his presence and mentorship on the tv show, Project Runway, I picked up his book a couple years ago to see what advice he would have for the average women folk.

I liked Tim's classic approach and have kept his advice in mind when shopping. Mind you old habits are hard to break, but for the most part I no longer walk out in public with sweats on.

A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style
by Tim Gunn

Description from the amazon:
There seems to be no one more qualified or equipped to ponder or even, dare I say, dictate 'quality, taste, and style' than Tim." -Sarah Jessica Parker, actor/producer

Television has introduced the world to a new fashion authority: Tim Gunn. As Bravo's style mentor and Chair of the Fashion Design Department at Parsons The New School for Design, Tim delivers advice in a frank, witty, and authoritative manner that delights audiences.

Now readers can benefit from Tim's considerable fashion wisdom in Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste & Style. He discusses every aspect of creating and maintaining your personal style: how to dress for various occasions, how to shop (from designer to chain to vintage stores), how to pick a fashion mentor, how to improve your posture, find the perfect fit, and more. He'll challenge every reader-whether a seasoned fashionista or a style neophyte-to "make it work!"


Open to all.
