I ordered Lauren Conrad’s ‘Style’ book last weekend after a little persuasion from my friend Florence. Who is a bad influence on me! It was, and still is I believe, on offer on Amazon for £7.49, which is half of its’ RRP price. I’ve received a lot of questions about the book, my opinions on it, and whether it is worth buying, so… this is my mini-review of it for you, as you all know I love Lauren Conrad!
The book itself is probably best described as a coffee table read. You know, one of those big, chunky, hardback books that needs no sitting down and concentrating to read. It is a style guide, NOT a novel, although Lauren also has a series of novels which I admittedly also love. I can’t think of many people more justified to write about style than Lauren, she has a gorgeous, effortless chic style, is constantly written about in fashion columns (and most blogs!) and she writes about it all from the point of view of being on TV.
Firstly, the book itself is really well made, and the paper is seriously good quality, nice and shiiiny! It is really well presented inside, with nice, sleek typography, and all divided into logical sections. Not only does Lauren share her fashion tips on what to wear, how to organise your wardrobe, tips for online shopping, vintage shopping and styling an outfit in different ways, she has great hair and make-up tips and even lifestyle tips.
Overall, although about 50% are probably common sense, or things I had previously heard of, I love this book! I do really recommend it to my fellow Lauren Conrad loyals, and to any The Hills fans. It’s full of gorgeous photos, behind the scenes info and some seriously handy tips!
