    The water cooler convos here at R29 always seem to center around our obsession with ABC's Revenge—we're absolutely, completely consumed with the soapy drama! Be-warned: One episode and you'll be hooked. Watching the premiere, we couldn't help developing another addiction. Specifically Victoria's It Brit minion Ashley, who looked so downright dope (not a bandage dress in sight) that we did some Amanda Clarke Emily Thorne-style digging. Turns out, the part was actually created for ingenue Ashley Madekwe, who not only has acting chops to spare, but is a bonafide fashion blogger, too! So, you can imagine our delight when she invited us in for a Sunday shoot at her historic Hancock Park apartment (fun fact: the show is actually filmed in Manhattan Beach, and Ash has never even seen the Hamptons, ha!), where the self-proclaimed "fashion magpie" put together four bookmark-worthy outfits. After peeping our exclusive, you'll be scheming harder than Tyler to copy Ashley's signature style.
