Anybody who follows me on Formspring or hangs out with me in real life knows that I am Madeline Pendleton's biggest fan. In fact, I'm typing this blog post out while wearing two foam "number one" hands, punching out every word in every sentence letter by letter. Tedious, but demonstrating diehard appreciation of my all-time favorite blogger and shop owner is at the top of my priorities (further down on the list: eating, sleeping, personal hygiene, anything that interferes with my freakish obsession and routine worship of Miss Madeline Perfect Pendleton [[saying all of this to humor whichever anonymous Formspringer asked her this question a few days ago.]])
Okay. For serious. Beyond crafting incredible outfits and blog posts, Madeline (and partner in crime Brit of Disarming Darling) channels her style savvy through selecting vintage pieces from thrift stores all over California and beyond to resell on her site TUNNEL VISION. She asked me to choose a garment from the shop to model for my blog, by way of illustrating the unbelievable stock her store offers. I naturally chose the most beautiful turquoise jacket I ever laid my eyes on. Cropped, quilted, and decorated with vivid patchwork in fuchsia, indigo, gold, and mustard, this vintage wonder is a work of art. I wore it in typical TV style -- with a turban, bindi, and Oscar De La Renta medallions.
