Looks I Love: Rodarte for Target

About a month ago, Target got us talking when it announced a new partnership with Rodarte.

The collection has been in stores since December 20 and I’d be crazy not to agree with the PR folks over there who have labeled it an “amazingly-priced collection.”

Here are my top three picks–none of which costs more than $110 btw!

LC Waves Goodbye to The Hills

Last night, Lauren Conrad officially thanked her fans for supporting her during her time on “The Hills.”

The actress / designer made the announcement on her MySpace Blog.

Last night was my last episode of “The Hills”. It was a bittersweet night for me. A part of me is sad to say goodbye to something that has been such a prominent part of my life, but I know that it was time and I am very happy with my decision. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has watched and supported me over the years. While putting my personal relationships and struggles on television wasn’t always easy, the support I received from people made such a difference. Because of all of you, I was able to accomplish so many aspirations and for that I am very grateful. So, THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

I have some interesting projects in the works and I will keep you all updated.

From what I’ve heard the next season will not disappoint :-)

I wonder what LC’s cooking up…

By the way, if you’re on the bargain hunt, you’ll want to check out Lauren’s online sale event with markdowns of up to 70 percent.
