Ad Madness: Ashlee Simpson Models For Sister’s Fall 2013 Jessica Simpson Collection Campaign!


Among all the celebrity sisterly duos, I have to say that the Simpsons, Jessica & Ashlee that is, are my favorite. While their musical careers may have lost their spark, it’s safe to say that the Texas natives are feeling good taking on fashion. The Jessica Simpson Collection has been successful with plenty of feminine apparel items & flirty accessories like platforms & sandals that are perfect for any wardrobe.

For the Fall 2013 collection, new mom Jess enlisted the help of her edgier rock & roll-esque baby sister, Ashlee, as the face of the latest line, which includes a stylish variety of casual dresses, date-worthy pieces, girlie jewelry, & trendy separates, as seen in the images above & below!

In a recent interview with People Style Watch, Ashlee shared that “I have a pretty cool sister with an amazing sense of style, and I was honored to get to do the shoot… We keep it in the family. Jessica’s a fun one to work with.”

Luxury Look-Alikes For Less: Go Plaid in Arnold Zimberg @Bluefly Vs. A Sweet Old Navy Deal!


Bright & fun plaids are a casual way to celebrate the spring!  Not to mention you can really play up the masculinity of a plaid button down like one of these with softer items.  These include a chambray skirt, embellished belt, lace camisole, or some floral jewelry.  But when you’re a Style Darling on a budget, finding the best deals on these timeless & comfy pieces is the best way to go.  Here we have two similar plaid shirts, one is from Old Navy for under $18 & the other is by luxury designer Arnold Zimberg, sold @Bluefly.  The original retail price goes up to $162.00, however the website is selling it for just under $79.  Think about how much you can get @Old Navy for that much.  Give your mouse a little scroll over both images to see which has what price.  What ways would you style a plaid button down?  My go-to would be some dark denim jeans & strappy sandals to keep a touch of femininity in the look, but also carry around a canvas bag if I’m headed out for a lunch date in this.  Check out how celebs wear plaid, like Ashlee Simpson, Charlize Theron, & Jayma Mays!
