Eliza's Makeover

Eliza thanks Gretta and Tim for teaching her to dress with class and style.

Hi Everyone!

I hope you enjoyed my makeover as much as I did. The experiences I shared with Tim, Gretta, Kay and the entire Bravo crew absolutely blew me away. They treated me like a rock star in every sense of the word, I had no idea it was going to be so cool. So here's what flipped me out - I was not expecting this experience to be so emotional. When I started filming the show, I was thinking, OK, I get to meet Tim who is fantastic and find out what he thinks I should wear and perform on the show.

After day one, things just got really crazy because, I was meeting all of these fabulous people and they were helping me every step of the way. I found myself really getting into it, and letting the change happen. Being inspired early on, I wrote a song to Tim called Tim Gunn's Guide To Style that you all heard a part of. It was surreal and fun to sing for Tim and Gretta in my living room. If you want to check me out go to ElizaNeals.com. I'd love to hear what you think.

Going to see Kay Unger was mind blowing because I didn't expect it. They do not tell you what you are going to do from one hour to the next, so it really is a surprise the whole way through. Kay designed and gave me her two of her wonderful dresses! To be in the presence of such a famous talented designer and wear her designs are what dreams are made of. As you saw, I was touched.

The bra fitting with Rebecca was a blast! Rebecca is a trip - you should have heard what she was saying to me. Hopefully Bravo will release the "uncut" version. All I can say is Rebecca is having a great time owning a lingerie shop in NYC! WOW!

On to my hair cut with the one and only Sally Hershberger! YEA, I love it! The day was like walking into stardom for an hour or two. Sally and I yapped it up about music and rock 'n' roll and rock 'n' roll hair, she liked my album cover photo and hair on "No Frogs for Snakes." Thanks Sally for leaving my hair long!

I was very touched by Tim and Gretta and the entire Bravo staff. I had no idea I would cry as much as I did, but the experience was very moving. I guess I am more freaked out about my fashion than I thought. Tim and Gretta have a way of "making fun" of you, but they really want to help you, so I didn't really take any of it personally. Tim always said, "Eliza, it's the clothes we are talking about, not you." LOL. As they cleaned out my closet and laughed at my tight jeans and ripped shirts, I did feel really bad at times, because I never thought it looked that bad off stage. But, learning to pair other things with jeans or change up the hats and the jackets has breathed new life into my style and I feel and look way better (I hope). I look more chic and put together and I get what Tim was trying to teach me about my body shape and proportions. I hated that body scan so just forget that part! I still feel like my waist is much smaller than the 3D woman!

The craziest thing that happened was my infamous black leather jacket was actually lost in route to Tim's loft by an assistant. It was hilarious because that was the piece they really needed to make into the purse. Long story short, they found it and snuck it back into the loft for Gretta to make into the purse they gave me on the show. To be honest, I was really cool with it when it happened, but I find myself missing that little black jacket. It's funny - now everyone has a little black leather jacket except me.

When I saw my episode I must admit I was anxious, nervous and scared about what I would see. I watched the show and it was put together so well with class and style. All the things Tim and Gretta helped me with were shown with taste and humor. For all you curvy girls out there, I know you can relate, it's hard to do what you want but still enjoy all the styles available. I love what they taught me, especially the way things should fit my classic pear-shaped, rubenesque curves. I still add my own signature style to what I was given and purchase. I am from an ethnic Armenian family and we are curvy (Kim Kardashian is Armenian too) and when Tim drew my shape he helped me see how the lines should fall and how things should fit for everyday clothes. Rock styles are independent and I will not lose my own style. I'll just be a bit more open to fashion!
