Feeling overwhelmed by the number of holiday parties on your calendar in the next few weeks? Not to worry: it’s okay to rewear dresses. At least that’s what designer Lauren Conrad says — and personally, we trust her opinion.

“During holiday parties I end up recycling a lot of my cocktail dresses, and just wearing a layering piece, like a blazer and tights, with it,” she tells

Conrad designed Paper Crown dresses, skirts and tops for the holidays, all of which take the spirit of the season into consideration. “When I was designing, I was really keeping in mind the types of things you do during these months,” she explains. “You’re going to a lot of holiday parties, and you want to look festive and still put together. So we had a lot of fun with that,” adding fun prints and details like delicate bows to various pieces.

While looks from her line are on our wish list, FabSugar wondered, what’s on hers? “My wish list for family is always something I can eat, drink or burn,” she says. “I don’t need a lot of things. So a nice scented candle, or a bottle of wine, or just treats — those are always fun.” Tell us: What’s on your holiday wish list?

This coming from someone who looks like she’s wearing a doily? Yeah….

I used to absolutely love Lauren Conrad. She had amazing style, an entertaining reality show, a role model personality and a great couple of books. I hate to say it but recently I’ve forgotten about her. Honestly, she should just sign up for another show to remain in the spotlight. By doing so, all of her fans will come back.

Good article. Nice to have positive reinforcement from a designer. Most like to make the masses feel like they need to constantly change it up.

Well if Miss. Lauren says its ok to recycle than it must be.

Rolling eyes.
