Gossip Girl feeds my passion for fashion, I’ll admit. Even though I love watching the ultra-expensive wardrobes of the characters, I find myself following the fashion ensembles the lovely Brooklynite Vanessa Abrams wears on the show. Actress Jessica Szohr, who portrays the artistic filmmaker, identifies with her character’s eclectic style. Her shopping habits may now include luxury shops in New York City, but she still loves thrift store shopping and finding gems in second-hand shops, said Szohr, who was also featured on the April cover of Lucky magazine.
A native of Wisconsin, the brunette beauty still gives her love to the local boutiques in Milwaukee, which is close to where she grew up. Like Vanessa, Szohr chooses looks that are put together in an effortless way, such as piling chain necklaces and sweeping her hair into a messy twist. She likes to wear her outfits with funky accessories, such as star-shaped earrings and long strands of pearl necklaces. In her daily life, Szohr likes to dress for herself, which is something I admire about her. At a recent event for Target in Chicago, she wore a sleeveless black dress with a beautiful knotted necklace.
How refreshing it is to see a woman whose career is in the spotlight, follow her own style and stay close to her roots!
