More and more celebrities are not just lending their names to clothing manufacturers these days but they are calling themselves 'designers'.  I'm not convinced, but I thought it was worth checking out these new arrivals. Now let's not assume that these lines will be tacky (although I admit I did assume that) and poorly made, (umm Kmart) and not a washing machine, (last purchase I made in a Sears).  Let's be open minded.

The Kardashian Kollection for Sears - I like some of the looks but some of the pieces that look good on line, (and in this picture) like the romper, I didn't like the fabric in person, it felt cheap. The pants suit paired with the lace tie blouse is nice.  And the accessories, especially the evening bags, worth a look.Kardashian Kollection


The Jennifer Lopez Collection for Kohl's launch didn't go as expected (supposed to be a husband and wife design launch and we all know how that went) but as with the Vera Wang for Kohl's collection some very nice pieces, and some not so nice.



The Sofia Vergara line at Kmart all looks like lingerie and Vegas night club to me. But check it out if you like that look.

Shop the Queen Latifah Collection at HSN!

The Queen Latifah's line for HSN is very mediocre when it comes to style, but it has sizes from XS - 3X.

These stores are trying to change their images by using celebrities to up their style and still keep it at a working girl price, always exciting, sometimes disappointing.
