It’s no surprise that Lauren Conrad is a multi-tasker. Fans of the reality TV shows Laguna Beach and The Hills watched her mature from an beach-bound teenager to a successful young adult while attending fashion school, interning at Teen Vogue and People’s Revolution and balancing a busy (and dramatic!) social life.

Now, Conrad is a prolific fashion designer and best-selling author with three clothing lines to her name and several books, including guides to style and fashion and the series L.A. Candy and The Fame Game.

The busy woman often goes to Pinterest to help keep her life organized.

In fact, Conrad utilized Pinterest while writing her latest book, Lauren Conrad Celebrate, a guide to entertaining and hosting dinner parties.

With Conrad’s new book Celebrate hitting the stores, PEOPLE got an exclusive look at some of her favorite pins used for entertaining, from make-ahead beverages, healthy snacks and casual but stylish outfits.

Pre-mixed pitchers of cocktails are one of my secret weapons whenever I’m hosting a gathering. It makes life so much easier to mix the drinks and then store them in pitchers in the freezer while you finish prepping for the party.

You’ve got to try this cauliflower tabuleh recipe that we shared on my site. I love cooking healthy meals that still have plenty of flavor.

I received this bag in black as a Christmas gift and I have been wearing it non-stop. It’s an It bag for a reason!

I just finished filling over 100 clear balloons with confetti for a launch party for my new book, Celebrate. It was a big undertaking, but it was such a fun and festive touch. Since I’m big into balloon upgrades right now, these pretty pastel watercolor balloons are next on my list.

This is the kind of outfit I could live in during spring and summer. White denim is a major staple in my warm weather wardrobe.

What could be more delicious than macarons and ice cream combined? If this recipe is half as delicious as it is pretty, I have a feeling I’m going to love it.

I can’t help myself — I pin a lot of flowers! These pink ranunculus are beautiful enough to be framed.

Our jasmine scented candle from The Little Market is one of my favorites.

We recently got in a new collection of hand-knit baby rattles at my fair trade shop The Little Market. They are my go-to gift for all the little ones in my life—this donut rattle especially.

These are the eight makeup products I use when I only have a few minutes to get ready. I love the Beauty Counter foundation because it’s made with the safest ingredients and I’ve been using the Chanel blush for years.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
