Have you ever been walking around Wal-Mart or Stein Mart and grown frustrated at the lack of clothes that appeal to the inner rock star in you? The one that strives to look like a tired, malnourished, and homeless looking rocker who may or may not have a drug problem? Guess what, tweens of America? Look no further. I have some great news for you!
Jessica Simpson has named her sister Ashlee as the co-creative director for a new fashion line aimed at tweens. Yep, that's you! Women's Wear Daily is reporting it will be part of the Jessica Simpson Collection and will feature sportswear and activewear. "Creating a tween apparel collection was a natural extension for the brand," Jessica told WWD. "I'm excited to bring my sister, Ashlee, along as co-creative director of this division, because she brings a savvy rocker edge that defines today's tweens."
Can’t you just imagine an 11 year old’s version of this?
I do love the idea of a Jessica Simpson activewear line. Can you get running shorts for those long days walking around a country fair eating funnel cake? Maybe there is a sports bra especially made for eating wings?
Then it occurred to me that this is just another reason I need to become famous. If I build some sort of empire I can find jobs for my family too. Jessica employs her father as her manager, mother as her stylist, and now her sister as her "co-creative director" of a clothing line for 11 year olds.
So Megan (my sister), if you reading this, I have a plan. I will make millions of dollars starting an activewear line of my own. The Kate Casey Collection will feature the finest fabrics for all your yoga, running, and Badminton needs. You will be named co-creative director of the new women's tennis wear line. I will announce the decision to name you to the new position and compliment your ability to bring that uptight New Jersey housewife edge that defines today's ladies of leisure style. I will point out your eye for designing camel-toe-free tennis skirts and matching faux fur sweater vests. And then we can retire early, buy a compound in Maui, and get started on our next project: a line of couture hand weights for "women on the go." Nepotism at its finest!
