LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's Fall 2010 Lookbook

Thanks to Kohl's, we have a first look at the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls Fall 2010 collection created by reality star turned fashion designer/author Lauren Conrad. This fall we're seeing lots of feminine touches like ruffles, floral prints, flouncy skirts, and lace, but nothing is too sweet. Rather, the girly vibe is casual yet sophisticated, and decidedly California-chic, expressed by relaxed silhouettes, sexy leggings and a subdued color palette. Prices range from $34 for a ruffle-tiered chiffon tank top; $50 for a lace-back cardigan to $70 for a motorcycle jacket. I'm loving the ruffle sweater (photo with the balloons) for $50, the super-versatile knit boyfriend blazer ($60) and side-swept dress ($60) with lace jacket ($72). If you're new to Kohls, don't worry if the prices seem high, things always go on sale with steep discounts. Look for pieces from the LC Lauren Conrad Fall 2010 line to hit stores beginning in August, more pieces being released in September. Click through to see all the looks, which do you love?

To get this look for even less, head to where you'll find this gold Moroccan pouf for $99.95 by designer Nate Berkus (who you might know as Oprah's cutie-pie decorator and shoe designer Brian Atwood's boyfriend). I love this find, but if anyone knows of a place to get a pouf for even less, please let me know in the comments!
