So, I don’t watch the massively popular Pretty Little Liars, but after reading this interview with Shay Mitchell, I’m pretty sure she’s one of the coolest chicks in Hollywood right now. She had relatable growing-up experiences (being teased in high school and eating lunch in the bathroom), has done some impressively ballsy moves (moving to Thailand with a boyfriend), and knows the importance of a good fashion splurge.
When the Liars paycheck started coming in, she got down to business and bought herself a classic black Chanel 2.55 bag. “I worked for it,” she told Yahoo Style. “I was raised with the notion that if you got it on your own, no one could take it away from you.”
For her personal style icons, it’s all about the classic bombshell. “Sophia Loren, all day long. She’s curvaceous and just the right amount of sexy.” And while Shay’s had some of her own va-va-voom fashion moments, she’s also relatable in that department, switching it up between different styles and married to nothing. “I’ll do motorcycle boots and all black one day and a floral dress and a flower crown the next. Today I’m dressed like a hippie gypsy.” As someone who feels like her personal style can ping-pong so much as to feel schizophrenic, I appreciate this.
