Lauren Conrad Style is written by LC with the help of Elise Loehnen. The book is filled with stunning and inspiring photos of that natural Californian beauty. The whole thing sort of harkens back to what I learned reading teen magazines (like Seventeen and YM) and putting it all into a handy and practical book. It's not rocket science - it's just straightforward common sense type of stuff.
Having fallen into a downward spiral of wardrobe choices during university - think Uggs, Crocs, sweatpants, hoodies and logo tees all the time, I was probably in need of a refresh. My closet has strayed in so many different directions that I can no longer keep track. So in comes the style guide.
Conrad keeps it all pretty light, doesn't talk down to the reader and infuses her little LA anecdotes. She tackles key pieces, wardrobe repair, how-to organize your clothes, getting things tailored, how-to edit your closet with lots of excellent pointers and style tips. I was actually surprised by how much I liked this book. There are chapters on shoes, makeup, hair, handbags - all tricks that Lauren has learned from being in the entertainment biz since she was 18. It's nice to read something that gets back to basics - because really, I'm clueless pretty much half the time.
Lauren will also be coming out with her very own beauty guide in early October entitled Lauren Conrad Beauty. Her latest book in her teen fiction series, The Fame Game is in-stores now.
