Martha, Martha, Martha!

On Monday we attended the live broadcast of Martha Stewart's special on consignment and thrift store shopping.

The set was even more beautiful in person (the lighting situation was particularly spectacular), Martha was charming as usual, and OMG... Iris Apfel was the special guest!

Iris styled several mannequins in her signature look (bold separates complimented by even bolder accessories) and discussed how she first fell in love with fashion on a shopping trip at age 11. Martha joked that little Iris wears 25 lbs of jewelry--judging by those heavy bangles and multi-stranded beads, we're not sure how much of a joke that is.

Other guests included international model Tatiana Sorokko and designer Ralph Rucci showing off a few of Tatiana's favorite vintage pieces. Cited as one of the "best dressed women of all time" by Harper's Bazaar, 60 pieces from Tatiana's personal collection are currently being shown at the Phoenix Art Museum.

All of the audience members were bedecked in their best vintage, consignment or thrift store finds. The Martha assistants liked our look so much, they gave us prime second row seats, next to the live Martha "tweeters." The leopard jacket, floral pin and vintage rings are all from Vintage!

The Martha Stewart Show airs weekdays on Hallmark Channel. Check your local listings for showtimes.
