As if selling millions of albums isn’t enough, Taylor Swift has teamed up with teen favorite L.E.I. to produce a line of sundresses for Walmart. “I love dresses,” Taylor tells PEOPLE. “And I have always had this dream to make an affordable sundress line.” Taylor first teamed up with L.E.I. last year to star in their denim campaign, and now the Walmart brand will be releasing her dresses on February 1st. The singer, who will also star in the ads, looked to her own life for inspiration when it came to design. “I started brainstorming what I would wear this summer, on tour or hanging out at festivals when its hot outside,” Taylor says. The result: a collection of lightweight jersey dresses in bold colors and girly prints for just $14. “I was totally adamant that I wanted [the dresses] to be affordable. With my headlining tour, we are offering $20 tickets everywhere we go and I wanted to approach the sundress line in the same way,” says Taylor. “To have cute dresses under $20 is something I am really proud of.” Though the star prefers more comfortable fashions, she does love designer gowns for the red carpet. “My absolute favorite is the dress that I wore to the CMAs this year. It was the Kaufman Franco glittery one,” Taylor recalls of the dress that landed her on best dressed lists everywhere. “I love dresses that sparkle and that was the epitome of sparkly — it was like a walking mirror.” Before gearing up for her tour, the singer will be hitting the Grammy Awards on February 6th and while she doesn’t have her dress picked out yet, she does have a designer in mind, “It has always been my dream to wear an Oscar de la Renta gown. So someday in my life I will wear one.” Oscar, are you listening? Tell us: Will you pick up one of Taylor’s dresses?

Ha ha ha ha, that Mary kid sounds like my best friend, she loves Wal-Mart, but she makes fun of it!

– And to let people like Mary know, Wal-Mart is an affordable, and nice place to shop; so you should shop there! :D

It amazes me how people bother to leave comments, when they don’t like a person. Why go out of your way to leave a comment on someone you supposedly don’t care for? Whatever!!! On the clothes being available at Walmart. Who doesn’t shop there, it’s the perfect place. For those of you who think your to good to buy clothes from there or actually the dumb ones. I be d**n if I am spending my hard working money to an outfit that is similar at higher price at a more distinguish store! Not to mention making the stars richer and richer. It’s just clothing, everyone wears them. It’s not like your special, because you an idiot for paying more. Grow-Up and face reality. God help this world!!!

One more thing, to the ones that are going to comment on my comment. Do yourself a favor, move on no one cares about your negative comments. If your that sad, go get yourself a prescription like the rest of the world does when they are miserable like you! Have a joyful and fulfilling day everyone. I know I will. “Oh, and thanks Taylor Swift for being a descent human being by providing us with affordable and quality clothes.”
