If there's anyone who's made a successful career in mostly everything I have even a remote interest in, it's Lauren Conrad. She's written both fiction and nonfiction, she's held fashion internships, and now, she's designing her own collections! At 28, she's achieved much more than others may hope to achieve in a lifetime, and contrary to the general reality TV-star trend, she's managed to do so while staying true to herself and growing in knowledge rather than plastic surgeries.
I could ramble on and on about the many ways in which LC has and continues to inspire me. Recently, during an interview, she was asked what her favorite position was, and without missing a beat she answered CEO. Such a great answer, right? I just really cherish Lauren Conrad's presence in the world, and truly believe she's a great role model for girls everywhere!
I purchased the dress on sale at Kohl's for $12 and could not believe my luck! It was a size S, which under normal circumstances would be a wee bit tight, but somehow this particular dress fit like a charm. I've been wanting to own some LC by Lauren Conrad clothes for a while, but I've never been one to invest over $30 for a piece of clothing, so I waited it out. In the end, I'm glad I did. Along with this dress, I also purchased a blouse and a pair of jeggings for $12 each. They even gave me a $10 off coupon for future purchases, so naturally I went back and bought ANOTHER LC by Lauren Conrad dress.... for only $2. Now if that's not the best shopping day ever, I don't know what is!
I love LC! I love the fact that her clothes are cute, functional, and versatile. In every single collection, I've felt girl power vibes- I've felt encouraged to look my best for myself, in clothes that promote self-respect. And as a female in my young 20's, I believe it's something that should be more prominent within our current society.
Thank you for stopping by! :)
