Luxe for Less: Lauren Conrad


Lauren Conrad strutted onto the scene in 2004 as a star of MTV’s Laguna Beach. Sure, Kristin Cavallari got a lot of press for her tumultuous relationship with serious hottie Stephen Colletti, but Conrad’s easy California girl charm won her millions of fans.  Since those days at Laguna Beach High School we’ve seen her evolve from yet another pretty girl to a fashion powerhouse. Don’t believe us? Well, think about this for a moment: she’s has a whopping three fashion lines to her name, runs a mega successful beauty site, and oh yeah, is a New York Times bestselling author for her trilogy exploring the world of (wait for it) fashion. But, perhaps one of our fave things about this SoCal darling is her effortless style- even while rocking Miu Miu heels and leather shorts she manages to look incredibly comfortable and chic. Of course, we fell head over high heels in love with her look, but we knew that we couldn’t afford those costly double cross platform sandals at $700 per pop or the charming Chanel quilted purse for $1,600. Instead, we decided to do a nearly identical look, even including a messy ballerina bun, for less than $150.

So, what did you think of this look? What other celebs would you like to see?
