Actress Mischa Barton added handbag designer to her résumé in 2008, but now she's expanding her fashion repertoire with a line of retro-inspired accessories and clothing. "I've always had a serious love of fashion, and it all started with my handbag line . . . This current clothing and accessories line has a fun, youthful vibe," Mischa told us.
So what exactly can we expect to see? "The line is full of versatile pieces like dresses that can be accessorized differently for day or night, adorable graphic tees, leggings, shorts, and skirts." Before you go off and shop the funky, fab collection — priced from $60 to $250 — at Mischasplace.com, find out what the designer had to tell us about her personal style, go-to pieces, and favorite colors of the moment.
