I saw this post last night being passed around on Twitter by my dear friend Kathryn!
And so much more…here!
Some may say it’s a little silly for me to call Lauren Conrad a role model because she’s only four years older than me, but I ain’t ashamed to say it. Lauren started out being a basic girl on Laguna Beach and look how far she has come. With a clothing line, beauty blog, and a couple books under her belt, she is accomplishing quite a lot for being just a 27-year old. Who wouldn’t want to have a career like that? She may not see herself as a role model for young girls – and that’s okay because she’s still young herself, but she has grown up to be one classy young lady. I just read news today that she bought a new house for herself, but that’s not what this post is about even though it’s amazing and I’ll never be able to afford something like this – this post is about these GIFs with her interview with Sway!
Lauren, you’re so funny.

Even topless, Lauren Conrad still manages to look super sweet and classy on the cover of Glamour. The reality star turned fashion designer turned author can do no wrong.
We are in the month of February and love, which means that for the next 13 days, you are going to see a lot of themed posts! I think I may have been the only one excited about Valentine’s today, but hopefully there’s a few of you out there who are on the same page as me. Are you gearing up for a very special evening this holiday and in need of a new dress? Here are some of my favorite picks!
To celebrate? Watching the entire first season of Laguna Beach on NetFlix. High school Stephen was such a dreamboat! Uh…when I was still in junior high of course!
I have no idea why it is so difficult for me to admit that. I don’t think it has anything to do with the retailer being Kohl’s at all though because I’ve been a fan of Vera Wang’s collection before too. Could it be that I am uncomfortable with saying that I am a huge fan of a reality television star’s fashion line? That’s probably it. It has nothing to do with the reality star being Lauren Conrad though because as we all know, I’ve liked her since her Laguna Beach days. However, the same could not be said when Heidi Montag came out with her line for Anchor Blue. I suppose if I support a reality star slash celebrity then I am more inclined to give their line a chance. In Lauren’s case, I am finding that I want to own every other piece from her latest holiday look book.
I also have a lot of respect for Lauren as a designer because she actually wears her own clothing. You won’t believe how many “celebrity” designers actually skip out on this.
After months of talking about it, Olivia Palermo has finally launched her blog into the internetz. Olivia Palermo, is a style icon, but is more known for her role on The City as Whitney Port’s frenemy. If you’ve ever seen the show, Olivia would not be one of the characters you rooted for, but if you have never seen the show at all then you would love her in real life just for her outfits alone. Somewhere in that hot mess of a sentence, it makes sense. The lifestyle blog will cover fashion, traveling, and tips. So far it’s a little lackluster, but I’ll give it a shot and add it to my notepad of blogs. If we were going to judge on visual appeal though, Lauren Conrad’s “The Beauty Department” still takes the cake! Design Love Fest creator Bri Emery is a creative genius!

After four years of being a judge on America’s Next Top Model alongside Tyra Banks, we have learned yesterday that André Leon Talley will be leaving the show at the end of the season. His replacement? None other than HBIC PR Head Kelly Cutrone. I know I throw around the term “HBIC” pretty often, but I really mean it this time. Cutrone is known in the fashion business industry for her public relations company People’s Revolution, but on television, is known for being the cutthroat boss to both Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad on The Hills/City. Who could ever forget the moment when Kelly interviews Stephanie Pratt for a position at the PR firm?
Well, I did so here it is again.
I don’t normally watch this show, but Cutrone is one of my idol’s so I might have to make an exception.
