Lauren Conrad is one of my favorite celebrities. Many people may say that she has no talent and many ask why is she famous in the first place, but I think she is awesome. Besides being incredibly pretty, she dresses exquisitely well and she doesn't seem like a fame whore. Months ago Conrad announced she was closing down her clothing line for an indefinite amount of time and that she was collaborating with Kohl's to create a more affordable line. Here is the first look of the line thanks to Shape Magazine’s September 2009 issue.

Salvatore Ferragamo and Yohji Yamamoto have teamed up to create a collection of both men and women's shoes for the Fall-Winter '09 season. Yohji Yamamoto visited the brand's company and was amazed at how many steps there were to take to make a shoe, according to James Ferragamo, head of the leather goods department.
The Lemno Brogue shoe is a favorite of Sienna Miller and Leighton Meester.
I just found out that one of my favorite designers has a book! Yes, it is not new but still! I love Paul Smith's preppy yet fun clothing. It is not a traditional fashion book, but it is Paul's thoughts and ideas on paper. I will be buying this soon! You can buy it through Amazon.

In honor of all students going back to high school or college, this is a style page on loads of new stuff for the new school year. When I think of school, I think on preppy outfits with blazers and stripes. Think about the uniforms on Gossip Girl or Harry Potter. I love the red jacket by Rugby because most uniforms are very plain with basic colors like white, black and navy and this will add a pop of color to any uniform. The Diane von Furstenburg hat is also loads of fun.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have released a preview of the fall lineup of their "Elizabeth & James" footwear line. This season's looks are much more diverse than the previous one. This collection includes laceless boots, stilettos with exposed-zipper, and snakeskin embossed wedges. They are available for pre-order through Saks and the prices range from $285 - $465.
For all of those Gossip Girl fans, like me, here is an exclusive sneak peek at the all new season. The third season begins September 14, at 9:00 P.M. on The CW. I love the show because of how gossipy and superficial it is and the styling is amazing.
For this first look, I wanted it to be kind of dark and mysterious. The dress has a rich deep purple color and I have paired it up with dark accessories. I also paired it up with a clutch with studs, which is a big trend right now.
Dress: Marc Jacobs, $1,900.
Pumps: Pedro Garcia, $395.
Clutch: Top Shop, $90.
Cuff: Oscar de la Renta, $290.
Necklace: Yves Saint Laurent, $1,390
