On the Pretty Little Liars Set


It's no surprise that I am a huge fan of the show Pretty Little Liars. Have been since day 1. It's one of the shows that I have to watch live. I'm willing to sit through commercials just because I can't wait to watch each week. Needless to say, when I was one of the bloggers invited to the set of PLL to get an up and close look at the fashion, tour the set, and snap a pic with a certain hunky teacher, I was beyond excited!

Upon arriving at Warner Brothers Studios we were escorted to a classroom set and got to browse through the wardrobes of Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily as we spoke with Costume Designer, Mandi Line.


There were pretty little dresses...


...And pretty little pumps


Wish I had Spencer's closet


Aria's vintage/funky attire


An outfit of Emily's


Hanna's wardrobe


Mandi is AMAZING! Not only is she a total badass rocker chick with a serious eye for styling, she's also a big personality. Funny, animated, and friendly. It's so refreshing when such a cool person has a great attitude to match. Mandi took the time to speak with each of us, pose for pictures, and give us insight on PLL styling.

Annemarie of Brunch at Saks, me, Kori of Blonde Episodes, and Kate of Nautical By Nature


After our fashion fix, we were surprised by a visit from Ian Harding, aka the teacher we all wish we had in high school, Mr. Ezra Fitz. He graciously posed with each of us before heading to his next engagement.

(insert swoon here!)


Next we took a tour of the set, stopping to see Spencer, Hannah, and Aria's bedrooms - all of which are adorable. The cool thing about the tour was that we got to see how the set is expanded depending on the scene and "location". For example, the classroom also serves as the cafeteria and the setting of school dances.

Sounds like a pretty amazing night right? Well it was, and I wanted to share the excitement with you. The people of Warner Brothers graciously donated a Season 1 Pretty Little Liars DVD which I am going to give to one of you!



T0 be entered, simply leave me a comment with your email address (so I can contact you). I'll select and announce one winner this Friday, December 9.

Be sure to tune into the winter premiere of Pretty Little Liars on Monday, January 2 at 8/7 c on ABC Family!

A picture with Mr. Fitz? So jealous! I love all their clothes, but I think Emily is more my style, with a little bit of Hanna thrown in. I love that you get to do all this stuff and blog about it so I can live vicariously through you! And you all looked amazing! But one question, does it take the magic out of TV making after you’ve see the sets?

It looks like it was a blast and the photo with Mr. Fitz came out so great! It must have been really fun to tour the set and speak with people that work on the show.

The leopard skirt in Aria's wardrobe is so chic. I could never pull it off, but I totally see her wearing the entire ensemble.
