Fashion designer Lauren Conrad stepped up to the plate this past February during L.A. Fashion Week with a breath taking collection that shut the critics (uhmm Heidi..) up. Her darling collection featured dresses and skirts that resonated her beach girl lifestyle. My favorite from her collection was a perfectly constructed strapless black and white dress. Lauren Conrad’s collection is very chic and will be a staple for many fashionistas. What I love about most of her collection is that you can dress it up or down with a few accessories not to mention that most of her clothes are affordable.
