|Me, on the set of Pretty Little Liars|
Earlier this month, me and a few other bloggers were invited to visit the set of Pretty Little Liars for a stylish evening with the show's costume designer, Mandi Line. I've been a fan of the show (and books!) for a while now, so I couldn't wait to see everything in person. It was my first time visiting a television show set and didn't know exactly what to expect, but I had so much fun! We learned a lot about each character's personal style, and even where they shopped.
After Mandi's fashion lesson (how appropriate, since all us bloggers were sitting in the desks!), we got a surprise visit from Ian Harding, who plays Ezra Fitz on the show (eeee!). He was super gracious and had something nice to say to everyone.
Then Aaron Robberson, one of the show's set dressers, took us for a tour around the girls' bedrooms. The only one we didn't get to see was Emily's, which was a shame because I always thought her room was the prettiest! It was so cool to see everything up close though--all the little details and things in the background that you don't really notice help bring the story alive.
