NYFW with DHL Exported, @xoxoLizza and Tommy Hilfiger and me!

This was one of my favorite looks from the Marcel Ostertag NYFW runway show

I don’t know about you, but I have always wanted to be a part of New York Fashion Week and this year, that dream came true in many ways. First, I was given the opportunity to attend the Tommy Hilfiger runway show with Vanity Fair AND also had the honor of being dressed by Hilfiger. Then, I was given a chance to be a part of my good friend Lizza Monet Morales’ live coverage of the Marcel Ostertag, Francesca Liberatore, and Nicholas K shows with DHL Exported.

For me, the excitement began weeks before Fashion Week even started when I went to Tommy Hilfiger in NYC to be styled by Jaime and meet with Heather from TH and Lily from Vanity Fair. Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good blazer and a comfortable but professional look. Of course, I totally fell in LOVE with this awesome blazer and we built a look around it that was a bit different from my normal look but taught me that I can go different while still being comfortable and looking good.

Shortly after that, my friend Lizza reached out to me to ask me to be part of her coverage of NYFW as a virtual member where I got to

Here's the look Tommy Hilfiger created for me

experience the runway shows of Marcel Ostertag, Nicholas K, and Francesca Liberatore. To me, this was a no brainer. Lizza is great at sharing her experiences virtually through Periscope. I was thrilled to be able to be part of even more runway shows, even if it was via social media.

I admire DHL Exported for highlighting up and coming designers during such a prestigious week for fashion. Every industry to think like that, imagine what a world it would be! I found that the designs were cutting edge, classy, exciting, and definitely worthy of the exposure!

I think being able to experience these shows from our homes, no matter where we live, how busy we are, or how cold it is out is extremely valuable for us as a culture and for the people who work so hard to bring new fashion to us each year. Hopefully, we can also figure out a way to be able to purchase our favorite looks for future runway shows. Imagine being able to buy clothes straight from the runway in the comfort of your own home?

I also think it is valuable to get to know the designers and with shows like Project Runway, we have seen that there is a desire to know more about the fashion industry and the people who live in that world.

Here is one of Lizza’s scopes from the Francesca Liberatore show:

Here’s Lizza’s coverage of the Nicholas K show:

And Lizza’s one-on-one with Marcel Ostertag:

AND here’s my scope from the Tommy Hilfiger show:

I can tell you that I have definitely been bitten by the Fashion Week bug and would LOVE to attend next year as well as experience LA Fashion Week. Here’s to fun, fashion, and film up next at the Oscars!

Saying Goodbye to Hot In Cleveland

At the Front Door on the Hot In Cleveland Set

Today, most TV shows are lucky to last one season so six definitely says something about the quality of the show and the talent involved. It also speaks volumes about the network that carries the show. It shows that the powers that be believe in you, respect you, and appreciate you.

Such is the case with a little show (that really isn’t so little when you look at it) called Hot In Cleveland. When Hot premiered, TV Land was known as the best place to go to see your favorite classic TV shows. It seemed appropriate that they be the ones to corner the market on television series which combined actors from those beloved classic TV shows and put them in the situations they were most familiar with, celebrated for, and damn good at!

This was also a risky venture because network and cable TV was becoming seemingly impossibly competitive. Thank goodness, the powers that be, including Larry W. Jones believed in the vision and took a chance on the show and the talents of Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, and Jane Leeves.

Hot In Cleveland premiered to phenomenal ratings and kept that momentum going strong. It created a place for other shows with similar formats and formulas to be born like The Exes, Happily Divorced, The Soul Man, Kirstie and now Younger, Impastor, and The Jim Gaffigan Show.

Hot also created an environment where Social TV could flourish and opened up an opportunity for me to develop a relationship with the show, digital producers, and even Mr. TV Land Larry himself! Now, how lucky was I? Over the years I have been to numerous live tapings, many gatherings at TV Land HQ, and even red carpet events. It also opened up friendships and events outside the TV Land

space.

I have been literally given VIP treatment and been able to bring some of my friends along from time to time. The memories go beyond the television screen for me and I am so thrilled to see where this will go next!

It is also bittersweet because I know all shows must end their run, I know actors move on to other projects but part of me wants them to stay. As Dr Suess says, “Don’t cry because it’s over, be happy that it happened”. I am very HAPPY Hot In Cleveland happened.

This Wednesday, June 3rd, I will again be tweeting from TV Land HQ in NYC along with the amazing TV Land family and I hope you all join along! In addition to the one hour series finale of Hot, we will be treated to a special sneak peek of the Jim Gaffigan Show. Wednesday nights have become somewhat of a twitter party for me during the airings of the TV Land sitcoms where we all get to tweet our favorite lines and fan reactions to the situations our favorite characters get into. That has expanded to Tuesdays now with Younger and I truly hope it will continue with all of TV Land’s shows!

Please join us on Wednesday for all the fun. Follow me @teeco71, @TVLand, @hotncleveland, & @gaffiganshow as we send off our beloved Hot in Cleveland and be sure to tweet along using hashtags #HotInCleveland #ThanksForTheLaughs #TVLand and #GaffiganShow.

With some of the TV Land family Live Tweeting during Hot In Cleveland and The Soul Man

I would like to take this opportunity to send Betty, Valerie, Jane, and Wendie all of my gratitude and LOVE. Thank you for all the laughs and thank you for being there for us each Wednesday! And special Thanks to Larry W. Jones, Sean Hayes, Tod Milliner and the entire crew for all they’ve done to bring us our favorite TV shows!

To the TV Land digital crew that have truly become family to me, I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday and to all that the future holds in store! Thank you for including me and for all you do!
