I've been reading a few articles that talk about your love for Hermes scarves, but I haven't seen how you style them. How do you wear them while avoiding that stuffy librarian look?! -Ali

 

Hi Ali,
Love my Hermes scarf, and the key is not to take it toooo seriously! Style is a matter of self-expression - being comfortable and confident in whatever desired look you may choose. Have fun mixing styles, colors and shapes in many interesting ways. Tying a printed scarf around your neck is the perfect way to introduce some color (and style) to a classic trench or neutral cashmere sweater.

The show utilizes so many fabulous designers & high-end stores. I don't live near a major city and because of that I feel like I have limited access to great fashion. I know I can always turn to the Internet, but I never seem to get a good fit from clothes that I can't try on. Any tips for finding stores outside of New York? P.S. You & Tim make the perfect team! -Emily

Hi Emily,
Thank you so much - Tim is so amazing to work with!! I do agree - shopping online can be a challenge. However, you can use Internet and local publications as a resource to finding fashion in your area. Perhaps there is a great consignment store in a neighboring town that you aren't currently aware of?! The racks have the potential to be stocked with gently worn designer items, which you ARE able to try on. In addition, it may give you a better idea of what items you are missing in your wardrobe, and make your web shopping a more pleasant experience.

I'm a fan of your program, I am a mother from 31 years ago 4, gain weight and the truth I have never really thought about it until now and I realize that most of my wardrobe is to give away almost all the clothes I have is clothes Used my younger brother and my mom and I bought one for my long black dress to use at parties for 12 years, a blouse and skirt and a couple of meetings and dress pants to go out and finish me realized that I renew my wardrobe 5 years ago. the truth I was very surprised to know that is what my armiario told me. I'm confused, sad and depressed because they do not like change or to buy for myself, ie as dress and forget why I prefer to stay home and avoid wiping out any reunion, and veguenza feel very sad to see me the mirror. Please infinitely agredeceria them his advice. Very grateful. Lucila. Peru

Hi Gretta,

I am also interested in the top ten list. I have checked the site a few times before to find it. Am I just not looking in the right place?

Thanks, Heather

Hi Greta I live in New Zealand and watched the show for the first time and found it very informative. Tim mentioned his Top 10 List of Must Have Items in your Wardrobe, he had these on a clipboard in the episode I watched. I can't find anything on the website about these. can you please tell me what these items are so I can start checking them off and shopping!!!!? Much appreciated
