*american apparel crop top, jeffrey campbell boots from wasteland, vintage sunglasses, TUNNEL VISION shorts, jewelry, bag, jacket (coming soon)

i love rich jewel tones- my apartment decor looks a lot like this outfit. i thought i'd wear some of my favorite TUNNEL VISION items the day before we launch... i'm so sad to see this stuff go, as they are all things that i would keep and treasure forever. alas, i've become so much less dependent on keeping things ever since i started buying and selling vintage clothes two years ago. it's easy to let something go when you know that you'll be able to find something just as cool, if not cooler, again soon. for me, thrifting is feeding some strange addiction that i have- the thrill of the hunt is how i like to describe it. i get a serious adrenaline rush when i walk into a thrift store... almost like drugs. buying and selling clothes wasn't necessarily my dream job (i've always wanted to work with animals), but i know that i'm good at it, and hell, i enjoy the shit out of it.

i've made it my life goal to travel the world, search high and low for flea markets, hidden treasures, and handmade goods. i want to bring beauty and craftsmanship and one of a kind items to people who appreciate them as much as i do. the way the world is headed makes me more sad that i can express in a blog post- the mass-produced clothes, the atrocious working conditions of people producing said mass-produced clothes, and the depleting resources used to do so, are all huge reasons why i am passionate about this line of work. shopping vintage and second-hand is such an amazing, fun, and creative way to stop greed and consumerism. of course, i'm still selling clothes, which is in itself consumerism, but i feel like i'm doing it in a way that encourages change.

with all of that said, madeline and i are beyond thrilled to open TUNNEL VISION tomorrow. we have poured our hearts and souls into this store. we have so many ideas and projects that we can't wait to start on. the store will be constantly evolving and growing, and we hope that you stick with us through it. we will be introducing our own line of clothing, possibly our own jewelry collection, and much much more. it's our creative outlet and our lives.

we've experienced so much love from the online fashion community that we decided to give everyone who "likes" us on Facebook a chance to pre-shop the store before we go public, with a very significant discount code that we'll be announcing tomorrow.
so, head on over to the TUNNEL VISION Facebook page and keep an eye out for the code tomorrow morning. we can't wait to hear what you think!

Love the outfit and all things with fringe! I just bought the cutest booties from Chinese Laundry with fringe all around the ankle! LOVE

The attitude you describe above is exactly why I went ahead and bought a Tunnel Vision hoodie today - even though (especially with the amazingly generous discount) the price of shipping to the UK was more than the actual item...!

The shop is so amazing, and I can't wait for my order to arrive. Excited to show off Tunnel Vision in England ;)

Seriously, such an inspiring post. I can sense your passion and it's such a beautiful thing to have. Especially doing what you love, that's what makes businesses flourish. Not to mention everything in your shop is pure genius, you guys are brilliant.

Much love to your store & future ventures. I'll definitely be a fan along the way and I hope to create something just as stellar.
