Beauty on a budget! Lauren Conrad feted the release of her new party-planning book, Celebrate, on Wednesday, March 23, in NYC — and she did it in a dress that cost less than $50.
The Hills alum, 30, donned the whisper-pink Bow Fit & Flare Dress, accented with a burgundy bow, from her LC Lauren Conrad Collection. The frock is available at Kohl's stores and online for only $48.
Conrad completed the ensemble with strappy nude sandals from her label's limited-edition Runway Collection ($45, kohls.com). She also rocked a loosely curled ponytail braid, a cat eye and a deep statement lip that complemented the dress' ribbon accent.
The Paper Crown designer spent the evening celebrating (no pun intended) with fans, her husband, William Tell, and her collaborator, Leslie Bruce, who posed for a sweet, balloon-filled snap with the ex–reality star. "@leslieannebruce and I wrote a book! And tonight we celebrated!!" Conrad shared via Instagram.
