I haven't read this book, but from reading the symphonis and reviews it simply reeks of when Paris Hilton released her book. A book which she essentially filled with pictures of herself, and anyone who read it instantly felt dumb(er). It seems to me that Miss Conrad has run out of idea's for her book empire.
First off, I must admit that I have no clue who Lauren Conrad is. A brief glance at her Wikipedia page gives the impression she's used her famous-for-what? reality star status to amass a miniature empire of fashion lines and book deals. So what am I doing reading a book with her name and face emblazoned on its cover? I've become quite a fan of her recently launched Kohl's line and several pieces have already ended up in my closet. Why not give her fashion-focused book a chance?
True to its title, Lauren Conrad Style is about Lauren Conrad dressing Lauren Conrad. Or, to quote Conrad's dedication at the beginning of the book, "the wonderful team that spends countless hours to put [her] together" dressing Lauren Conrad. Although I could possibly see this appealing to the very young girl who's just getting interested in fashion, there's nothing here that a quick Google search for style advice won't yield. My favorite feature is when Conrad is shown wearing her little black dress in several specific styles, offering examples of how to get five separate looks from one single item. The book would have been so much better had it continued with this line of thinking. Instead, we get basic key pieces that are indeed basic (the aforementioned LBD, t-shirts, jeans) and tips that range from the comically obvious (Department stores are big! Boutiques are small!) to the downright dumbfounding (Don't try swimsuits on in the store. Order a bunch online and try them on in your home.). The most dominate thought I'm left with is how fun it would be to make my own book showing off my closet. I know I'd love it, so surely everyone else would! Right?
I like this book! I didn't know who Lauren Conrad was when I first picked this up, but it was a great book! She talked about how to build a wardrobe, as well as hair, makeup, and organization tips. There were also tips on how to dress for certain events (weddings, dates, etc.), and she had good advice. I would really recommend this, even if you're not so into fashiony-beauty-y things.
I got this book for my cousin who loves fashion. I don't know who Lauren Canrad is and I am not the type of person who likes to follow what's in "trend". As a book lover that I am, I couldn't help but see what this book has to offer. I must say i found this book to be very informative. If you like fashion and need tips on makeup, hair and etc this book is for you.
really inspirative and helpful
best book eveeer ! <3
This book is a good intro to style and I love Lauren Conrad's style--I want the black pumps with spikes that she has!
This is such a cute book! The pictures are so clear and bright, and the writing style is great!
whoever has this book still , HURRY UP AND RETURN IT . I WANNA READ IT , I'VE BEEN ON HOLD FOR LIKE A MONTH . JUST RETURN THIS BOOK .
Very disappointing. It is simply a rehash of general style advice available in many other books.
