obsessed -- paper crown.

http://static.zara.net/photos//2012/V/0/1/p/2041/760/800/2041760800_2_3_3.jpg?timestamp=1322665415795
ATTAINABLE: Zara Asymmetric Studio Dress
www.zara.com; $159
How incredibly dynamic is this little black dress from Zara? I was immediately drawn to the architectural shape of the shoulder and sleeve -- it gives just a hint of avant-garde without being too over-the-top for every event this season. I love the simple, sleek shape of the rest of this frock and it would be so perfect with a bright clutch, heels, and a bold cocktail ring.

I'm a self-professed Lauren Conrad worshipper. I think she's so fantastic -- always chic, confident, and put-together. And I love just about everything she does -- especially her gorgeous Paper Crown collection. The pieces are so pretty and feminine, and I get the feeling that a girl becomes instantly flirtier just by slipping into one of these dresses or jackets. Even better, each look is so luxe and has potential to flatter anyone.

Paper Crown Brooklyn Veggie Leather Jacket
www.revolveclothing.com; $198
I'm in love with this adorable little leather bolero jacket. I think it would be such a fantastic alternative to a wrap or cardigan over a chic little dress for a holiday party, but would be equally fab with a simple ribbed white tank, dark jeans or a soft skirt, and heels. And it looks ridiculously soft, which is always a major plus.

Paper Crown Wilde Tiered Mini in Cranberry (also in Navy Garden Bloom)
www.revolveclothing.com; $368
This shape is, as far as I'm concerned, perfection. I love the light, gauzy fabric and easy tiered silhouette. The neckline is simple and would lend its way beautifully to a bold, sparkly statement necklace, and this red shade is killer. It hints at femme fatale without being overt and is fantastically festive for the season.

Paper Crown Camilla Varsity Sweater
www.revolveclothing.com; sale (now) $158
I'm a sucker for soft loungewear, especially as temperatures drop. This modal/cotton blend is sure to be incredibly cozy as I slouch around on Sundays, especially when paired with a pair of thermal leggings. However, it would also be adorable with trouser jeans and heels. Versatility AND comfort? I'm in.

Paper Crown Lola Dress
www.revolveclothing.com; $272
Speaking of versatility, this dress is as perfect as it gets. It has such fantastic day-to-night appeal. It would be perfect for work with a cardigan or jacket over the top but could transition easily into evening with just a few accessory changes. Better, it's the epitome of the perfect little black dress. Brilliant.

What are YOU obsessed with right now?

I am not a fan of the old show, but I think LC is a great example of someone who hasn't gone crazy from being on reality TV. I love her new line, esp the little leather jacket-- it is the perfect topper for when I need a little something structured to complete an outfit :)
