Lauren Conrad says it’s ok to recycle holiday dresses

“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

When creating her new pieces for design house Paper Crown, the 25-year-old said she took holiday parties 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.”

Conrad’s new fashion line is her third collection after The Lauren Conrad Collection and LC by Lauren Conrad. The collection features fun details such as vibrant prints and delicate bows.

As for what’s on her wish list, Conrad revealed: “My wish list for family is always something I can eat, drink or burn. 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.”

Recently, Lauren has been linked to Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough, but the rumor didn’t stick for long.
