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?

She’s not a designer. What a joke. I can’t believe people would actually care what reality skids like her and Kim K. think.

She has such a lovely name! Lauren! So sweet…
But I don’t think LC can cook/make/buy clean fresh meals like the more lovely Rachael Ray….

“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.”

The way statement is written, it’s like we’re supposed to be like “oh she’s so humble and non-materialistic”. In other words, she’s a multi-millionaire, so no, she shouldn’t be asking her family for expensive/large amounts of gifts.

I think it’s too funny how people click the article….read it and then take their time to complain/put down the person in it/b*tch about it’s content. PEOPLE is not CBC/BBN/Financial Post!!!!!! STOP COMING TO THIS SITE AND READING THESE ARTICLES IS YOU ARE GOING TO GRIP ABOUT THEIR TOPIC. Esp the people who take poorly about the persons appearance or status. Get over yourself and look in the mirror, see something much better? Honestly, you just sound like ignorant, condescending, sad, sad people. :)

I love Lauren AND the fact that she doesn’t care if she is seen in the same dress more than once. For us, recycling outfits is a given. Duh. But for someone who has her picture taken 100+ times a day -it’s cool that she doesn’t care. Kudos to you, Lauren

You are all just jealous hens!!!!! She’s beautiful, and I would much rather take her advice on fashion sense than any of you nobodys.
