She's a self-described 'fashion junkie' who often describes her style as 'boho.'

And as Rachel Bilson arrived to a friend's house for a pool party in Los Feliz yesterday, the Hart of Dixie star looked ultra chic in her striped maxi dress.

The stylish star, who turns 31 at the end of this month, showed a bit of skin thanks to the low-riding racer-back of her black-and-white dress.

'It's going to be fun,' Bilson told Wet Paint last week at the CBS TCA All-Star Party.

'There's definitely going to be a lot
of love-triangle action. Team George (Scott Porter) vs. Team Wade
(Wilson Bethel). So that's going to be fun to play with.'

The former OC star said her doctor
character is fun because, 'she's true to herself, and she just is a
mess. She's clumsy. I get to do a lot of the physical comedy this year. I
fall a lot.'
