Lauren Conrad Style: Book Review

I started watching Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County years ago because my best friend was crazy about the show. After Laguna Beach ended I followed Lauren Conrad to The Hills. Lauren has faired much better than many of reality tv's stars and I've admired that about her. She generally isn't the center of scandalous Hollywood gossip. She had some endoresement deals, created her own fashion lines, and written a series of fiction books that have sold very well. When The Hills started I thought Lauren's style really had grown. She was no longer strictly a shorts and flip-flops kind of girl. And since that time I've liked her polished, pulled together look. While Lauren may not be what I consider a fashion icon her style is absolutely something I can relate to and when I see pictures of her she is almost always wearing something I would love to add to my closet. I share her love for classics, big sunglasses, and Chanel. So when Lauren's first style book came out I was looking forward to getting a copy of it. I read it this past weekend and although we've never done a book review before on our blog I thought I would share a few of my thoughts about the book. Lauren Conrad Style is a very easy to read book. I read it in a few hours on Saturday. I think Lauren's personality in the book comes off as being very friendly and I enjoyed the times she would relate her fashion advice back to some prior life experience she has had. The book provides information on the basics, accessories, makeup, how to buy the right jeans, and hair. Most of this information isn't that new. Except for the makeup section for me. I hate to admit it but I'm fairly clueless when it comes to makeup. I was surprised to learn that while filming her reality shows she never had a stylist and she was the one responsible for making sure she never had the same look on twice while filming.

She also provides tips on how to dress for events such as a first date, school, or a job interview. My favorite part of the book was when she showed how to wear the same little black dress in 7 totally different ways by adding just a few other pieces. I liked this because I sometimes miss the potential an article of clothing has and end up always wearing it the same way. I also enjoyed the section that provides advice on how to pack for different vacations because I'm one of those people who always wants to pack everything I own.

While Lauren's book may not be ground breaking, it was a fun read. It has some helpful tips such as how to do a temporary hem and organize your closet. This would be a great book for a young adult building up their wardrobe.

  13. I knew Lauren from Laguna Beach too before moving on to the Hills, she was alright to me and typical me, always have a thing for the rebel one like Kristin Cavallari. But she is definitely the better one among them all, the more decent one. Loving her for that! I never know that she actually has a style book, my sister would love it since she is a big fan of her! Thanks for sharing the info!

    Have another awesome day! (:

  14. hhuuumm I think what I would like to see from that book would be, how to wear the same dress 7 different ways, 'cause aswell end up wearing a dress the same way. And what to pack for holidays, 'cause I also feel like breaking everything with me "just in case" lol

    Right now I'm having a problem with one of my dresses, I don't know how to wear it, in therms of acessorize, shoes, coat bla bla.
