It seems like only yesterday that Audrina Patridge was revealing her life-size Bongo billboard on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard, but after serving as the brand’s spokesmodel for two years, the former reality star is hanging up her body-hugging bikinis and jeans.

“Nothing lasts forever, so it’s all good,” she tells PEOPLE of splitting from the company. “It’s been two years, so it’s almost like a little family. The whole crew has been amazing — they made it really fun for me to work with them and travel. They were always so creative and they always made it special.”

Patridge isn’t parting ways with the fashion world, though; she tells PEOPLE she’s planning a line of her own for next year. “I’m already looking into either lingerie or bikinis,” she reveals. “I’m really excited about that.”

In fact, her holiday wish list includes some designer necessities. “I asked my mom for a sewing machine,” she shares. “I love personal things that are keepsakes forever.”

Though she was dressed as a sexy Mrs. Claus for her final Bongo event in Los Angeles Tuesday, Patridge believes holiday clothes “are all about sparkles. You have to be festive. If you’re going to dress up or you’re going to decorate, you go all the way.” For Christmas, she prefers textured silk, leather or velvet dresses in rich jewel tones. “I’ll always add sparkly jewelry and red lips,” she says.

But for New Year’s Eve, it’s all about the glitter. “Whether it’s a sequin dress or sequin skirt, or leggings or something like that, it’s fun,” she says. “You can get away with making it a little more funky.” Tell us: Are you planning your holiday outfits yet?

Maybe Audrina has been hiding her cleavage all year to wait for her own padded bras to put some boost back into her bust. Post drastic reduction procedure Audrina has looked sad throughout 2011 flattened, sagging, shapeless with her formerly ample signature cleavage totally awol. Now perhaps we’ll see her shape will return.
