I got word that Lauren Conrad (reality star from The Hills) had a new book out titled, Style. This peaked my interest because I loved how she looked on the cover.I contacted my good friends over at Harper’s Collins,who published the book and they sent me a copy right away.
When I opened the package, I loved how the layout was! The size of the book is perfect for a coffee table and the back of it is shimmery pink, I love! This book is very well put together and I knew it was going to be a page turner! I try to read a book a week to keep my brain fresh and this book did just that. First off, I LOVE fashion and I love vintage. She touches on all of that, so let’s get started!
