Her Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf is often spotted in pricey designer dresses — hello, Jenny Packham — but Leighton Meester says she prefers to save a few bucks when she shops. “The last time I popped out my credit card I bought [a] Proenza Schouler dress,” she tells PEOPLE, adding that she picked up a few others that same day during a sample sale for the brand. “I love sample sales! Proenza always has the good ones, and is one of my favorite designers. Most of the Proenzas in my closet are from sample sales.” Not one to splurge too much, she’s also a do-it-yourself type, currently redecorating her own home. “I’m buying tons of magazines, too, like Elle Decor, and I’m addicted to them now,” she admits. “Even though one day I will be done decorating, I’m still going to be buying them because I love looking at them.” Tell us: Are you a sample sale shopper? –Reporting by Paul Chi
