Jessica Simpson is well-known for being a tabloid headliner, a dumb blonde and, oh yeah, a pop singer. But after forays into cosmetics, fragrance and hair extensions, Jess is adding another profession to her resume: shoe and handbag designer. And… is it just me, or are some of Jessica's (mostly reasonably priced) pieces pretty darn cute? I was walking through Macy's the other day and did a double-take at these Jessica Simpson "Reese" Peep-Toe Slingbacks ($89). They hit all kinds of fall trends: snakeskin texture, a chic hidden platform and a little shine. They're glam rock and perfect for that fall wedding on my calendar.
Her berry-colored Jossette d'Orsay Pump ($79 @ Piperlime) and glossy, super trendy 'Thalia' Bootie ($119 @ Nordstrom) could be found in the pages of any fashion rag touting fall footwear must-haves, and her Sierra Vista-North/South Shopper ($210 @ Zappos) looks ultra versatile and roomy (perfect for toting all those Jess-filled tabloids).
Still, I'm a little torn. Is it cheesy to wear items "designed" by celebs (and who knows how much of a hand they have in the design process) or is the cuteness factor all that matters? Vote below or check out the rest of Jessica's creations below.
