I already know what you’re thinking: Mischa Barton? Where has she been? Well, The O.C. actress has been designing handbags (since 2008, actually), and this year she launched her first-ever clothing line called Mischa’s Place, which—get this—is already beginning to sell out. (See: Her $310 signature jacket, which is no longer available.) Now up until this past weekend, I too had NO idea what was going on in ol’ Mischa’s life, but after seeing her on the premiere episode of Vh1’s new show Styled By June, Mischa mentioned in passing that she had a handbag line (WUT?) and revealed her fears of the press and paparazzi. This led me to Google the crap out of her for a good hour straight (who knew she had a duel citizenship in both the United States and Britain? Not me!), and suddenly I felt reconnected to the former “It” girl. Upon my findings were her clothing line, and I’m MORE then happy to report that her bohemian-inspired collection is flying off the (virtual) shelves. Her line features everything from band jackets with metallic trim ($225) to party-ready tulle frocks ($175). Some of our other favorite pieces include the illusion mesh maxi dress ($200) and the cinched-waist jumpsuit with pockets ($160), just to name a few.

While some of her pieces are a little pricey, her handbag collection is actually a bit more affordable. She carries everything from crossbody bags to clutches to side satchels and everything in between. Some of our top picks include the light pink square over-the-shoulder bag with stud embellished shoulder straps ($94) and the gold studded black bowler bag so you can carry literally everything you own with you at all times ($128). We’re also kind of obsessed with her brown faux leather doctor bag with an additional strap to throw it over your shoulder ($135) and her two small clutches. The fold-over emerald green bag with gold tips adds a pop of color to any ensemble in a snap ($50) and the nude exposed zipper pouch ($50) goes with literally any outfit in your wardrobe. If you’re STILL in need of a Mischa fix, she also sells beauty and bath products. Whew, we’re getting tired just talking about it!
