California Love

I know I'm going to get all kinds of flak from all of you Hills haters out there for this, but I have to say... I love Lauren Conrad's Spring 2009 collection.

It was shown last night at the Smashbox Studios as part of Mercedes-Benz LA Fashion Week. Lauren hung out back stage where she helped style the models and make sure her clothes were dressed perfectly.

Creating good basics has proven to be a more difficult task than one would think. I think Lauren has nailed it with this collection, which has a true retro feel to it and draws inspiration from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Her designs include strapless floor-length dresses in muted white, blue and brown, high-waisted shorts and thigh-skimming flowered dresses with bubble skirts. Thick black and brown belts cinched dresses in at the waist. Overgrown 'Carrie Bradshaw flowers' adorned headbands, completing the show's feminine theme.

Maybe I just love this collection because I would wear every piece. Oh well, I do...and I would.

Nope. Forget Conrad - we should start our *own* design business.

@ keira-anne: We should! We could rule the fashion world!

Yeah yeah, it's OK. I do like simple outfits, but I still think she's overrated.

I love that you're @-ing on comments now too - haha. Um, but yah, sorry to say...Lauren Conrad's designs are a total snoozefest. I know we could design far cooler shit.
