Shoe Buzz: Lauren Conrad in Miu Miu sandals, plus a new reality show rumor & her Kohl’s line
She may be so over The Hills, but Lauren Conrad apparently isn’t over reality TV…or fashion design…or her expensive Miu Miu sandals. If you’ve caught my posts on shoes from The City and The Rachel Zoe Project, you’ve probably gathered that I’m a reality show fan, especially of shows that are fashion-oriented, and The Hills has always been on my to-watch list. I also have another guilty pleasure called In Touch magazine, which just reported that Lauren and her new boyfriend Kyle Howard might be getting engaged soon and have been approached by MTV to do a reality show together. Although it’s certainly not definite at this point, I was a little surprised. I mean, she’s been quite private about her relationship with Kyle and seemed ready to escape the cameras (and the drama) after years of being on reality TV. Perhaps her potential change of heart has to do with her aspirations for fashion design. Another reality show would keep her in the public eye, which usually results in increased sales. On the other hand, reality shows are notoriously bad for relationships and she seems to have a good thing going with Kyle. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens, but I must say it would be quite interesting to see Lauren go from single L.A. girl to living the hitched life on camera (televised wedding anyone?)
So, now let’s talk about shoes. Lauren’s fave shoe of the moment seems to be this Miu Miu Crisscross Platform, a sandal that she’s been virtually living in lately. Unfortunately, for those of you who have $595 to drop on a sandal, the shoe doesn’t appear to be in stock anywhere (if you’re a size 10, see Bergdof Goodman or Neiman Marcus). But, if you want a similar pair of sandals for that last bit of warm weather some of us have left, I found a few pairs for much less:
Go Jane Snake Cross Strap Heel for $22.40. If you spend over $50, use coupon code GJSHIP50 for free shipping.
N.Y.L.A. Akila platform sandal in tan for $56.90 at Amazon. There is also a brown version in limited sizes for $43.51. Shipping is free.
ALDO Jolly for $59.98 at ALDO. Use coupon code VIPOFFER for free shipping.
On a final note, I noticed that the budget-friendly Lauren Conrad line for Kohls is now available. There aren’t any shoes (I supposed she hasn’t delved into footwear as of yet), but there is a rather small selection of dresses, tops and pants for sale. Yes, you can now buy your very own pair of Lauren Conrad skinny jeans. If you see something you like, be sure to apply coupon codes NEW7123 (exp. 9/19) for 10% off and THISIS4FREE (exp. 9/27) for free shipping, no minimum required. The codes can be used together.
