Cleaning out the Closet on "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style"

Now that we have seen four of the eight episodes of the first season of "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style" Team BPR thinks we are ready for a mid-term progress report. We thought it would be fun to organize this the way that Tim does - by cleaning out the closet. Here is a start:

Keepers: Visiting the designer boutiques, meeting the designers and watching the MO try on the designer clothes - love that!

The hair and make-up is uniformly excellent.

The optitex program is pretty cool. I just like to see Tim sketching over the printout.

Soul-stirrers: The look on the husband's face...

Throwaways: Obviously, the underwear drawer scene.

Also, the too-short sofa in Tim's "office,"

Give-aways: The life-coach segments... maybe Dr. Phil wants them. Of course Laura Bennett is a Keeper.

Menders: Veronica's hair and make-up. She is gorgeous, but her styling needs "mending."

Also, more fun and less crying and complaining from the MO please.

Okay - this is just a start - BPRs please add your suggestions. I realize that some of you like the life-coaching - please feel free to disagree. I'd rather have the time spent on something more valuable like shopping. When the MO comes out in the "wrong" look, I like being about to evaluate it. Then when she comes out in the "right" look I can understand why.

I'd also love to see some shoe shopping. :)

How do you feel about the gift closet?

Shopping with a family member?

Veronica Webb as co-host?

The rug in Tim's office?

The "reveal" in front of the friends and family?

The list of "Ten Essential Items?"

Keepers, Soul-stirrers, Throwaways, Give-aways or Menders?
