Kristin Cavallari Can't Wait to Slip Into Her Heels Again

New mom Kristin Cavallari got a promotion: she recently went from Chinese Laundry celebrity shoe stylist to designer! The former reality star is launching a capsule collection with the brand this December, featuring pumps, flats, booties, platforms and more in a variety of bold colors.

“I wanted to make a line for girls who want to look and feel great, but not spend a fortune,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s important for girls to know that you can look amazing at a great price.”

Cavallari says she kept an eye on fall and winter trends while creating her footwear, and “just designed shoes that I love and want to wear,” she shares. “This line is for the girl on the go who wants to feel great for any occasion.” She learned a little something during the creative process, too. “I definitely have a certain style and taste and don’t veer far from it,” she jokes.

However, the bride-to-be has modified her look a little bit since becoming a mom earlier this month. “I’ve mostly been wearing my most comfortable clothes — lots of leggings and T-shirts and maxi dresses,” she says. “I’ve been so tired, so whatever is easiest is what I’m wearing.”

The same rule applies to shoes; Cavallari stopped wearing heels later in her pregnancy, and has yet to put them back on. “I’m looking forward to the first time I [wear them again],” she shares.

Between new motherhood and a new shoe line, the star is feeling quite inspired these days. “I have a jewelry line coming out around Valentine’s Day,” she says. “No plans as of now for a clothing line … I’d love to do a maternity line [or baby clothes], though.” Tell us: Will you shop Cavallari’s new shoe collection?

I was surprised by her on DWTS. She was not at all an airhead. It’s amazing that a lot of the people that read this magazine are so negative about celebrities. Why do yo read this if every comment is negative? Let her be! on

Kristin is SO much better than heidi!! If heidi put out a shoe line i don’t think anyone would give a damn!

She is not a designer, she is a promoter. I’m so sick of people calling bogus celebrities with no experience or education in designing, designers. If you look at a pair of shoes and say those are nice, or I don’t like those, that doesn’t make you a frickin designer. I don’t know the whole process of what it takes to design a piece, but I guarantee it’s a lot more complicated than showing up for a couple of meetings and saying I like green let’s have green shoes.

She’s a pretty lady but sounds like she is dumb as a stump.

It appears as though Kristin has grown alot. I wish her luck. As for Lauren having more class then her not. Lauren was/is a snobby biotch that thought she was better than everyone. How many people did Lauren fall out with on LB and The Hills…
