Familiarity with her clothing line at Kohl's, but unfamiliarity with the reality show "The Hills" prompted the reading of this book. She definitely has an excellent eye for style based on her clothing designs.
The book is an easy read with many pictures of Lauren Conrad (I wonder how long the shoot for the book lasted, there are at least 30 different photos of her taken just for the book and she looks great in all of them). The book covered a wide range of topics - everything from closet taming to travel to makeup. The book did not contain revolutionary ideas and did not produce any earth shattering aha moments (you might have to sit down for this news - jeans and a t-shirt actually go together. Should we alert the press?)
The most informative section of the book was the clothing maintenance as all the advice was very down to earth, provided great resources, and could really help your clothing budget in the long run. She gave excellent resources and brand names for maintaining the wash of your jeans and great ideas to grunge up your jeans.
The beauty section was a little hard to follow as I am a visual person and find it easier to follow along with pictures rather than a bulleted list of directions. Additionally, some of the cosmetic and hair advice did not seem to consider that people of other ethnicities might be reading the book so it contained some rules and advice that may not apply to those demographics.
Overall, I think she did an excellent job of directing this writing effort towards her market and delivering the most important information to them. It hits on all the 3 C's...Californian, Cute, and very much Conrad!
