Followers of Jessica Simpson‘s Instagram know that the star has a very distinctive vibe when it comes to her home — it’s warm, comfortable and romantic, with plenty of overstuffed pillows and patterned fabrics (see a few glimpses that she’s shared, below). And now she’s bringing that aesthetic to a line of home goods, which just launched with bedding in Bed Bath & Beyond stores and will continue to roll out with quilts, kitchen and bath across more retailers later this year. The singer (and soon-to-be-bride) chatted with PEOPLE about the latest addition to the Jessica Simpson empire.

We are perpetually grateful to stars who make interesting style choices. Without them, we would have nothing to debate in “Obsessed or Hot Mess” and our at-work AIM conversations would be so dull. Why, just in one day alone, three stars stepped out wearing items that had us furiously typing out our Feelings, and now we’re sharing those Feelings with you.

Jessica Simpson has been on a non-stop body-flaunting parade. (And we can’t really blame her.) The Weight Watchers spokesperson is all about the mini dress this summer, showing off her slimmed down figure in a number of short designs. And now it’s time to talk about them.

Most recently, the mom to daughter Maxwell, 2, and son Ace, 11 months, stepped out with fiancé Eric Johnson and a group of their close family and friends to celebrate co-ed bachelor-bachelorette party in West Hollywood. Simpson, 33, selected a tight Saint Laurent LBD featuring a dotted illusion yoke. The design not only put her stems on display, but also showed off a notable amount of décolletage.
Next, the designer wore a high-neck white lace dress with a short hemline and ankle-strap heels for a day running errands in L.A. And finally, at a friend’s baby shower, she donned a fuchsia frock with nude platform wedges that accentuated her leg muscles.
To maintain her weight loss, Simpson sticks to her Weight Watchers plan (she’s a spokeswoman) and does this workout with trainer Harley Pasternak. But most importantly, Simpson says, she has found a balance and doesn’t let a number on the scale dictate her actions.
“I fluctuate, I’m a woman,” she said in a recent interview. “I feel like we all need to enjoy life. If I’m five pounds heavier or 50 pounds heavier or five pounds lighter, I don’t think that should define who you are.”

Jessica Simpson has turned her eponymous clothing and accessories line into a billion-dollar brand, so it’s no wonder that the singer-turned-businesswoman was asked to appear at the Forbes Women’s Summit in N.Y.C. Thursday to be interviewed by none other than Steve Forbes himself. Wearing a dress and cuffs from her own Jessica Simpson Collection, the star discussed why her fashion line has become such a hit where others have fizzled out.
“I think my brand has surpassed my name and my celebrity,” Simpson said of her line, which has grown to include footwear, juniors’ and plus size. The trick to making things that appeal to a wide variety of customers — and not just her fan base? “I think I understand women. I’ve been every size on the planet, and I think beyond New York and LA.”
She expanded on the “every size on the planet” line by addressing her very public weight loss journey as a Weight Watchers spokeswoman. “I fluctuate, I’m a woman,” she said, according to WWD. “I feel like we all need to enjoy life. If I’m five pounds heavier or 50 pounds heavier or five pounds lighter, I don’t think that should define who you are.”
And though she’s currently at her goal weight, she doesn’t put too much stock in the number no the scale, living by two common-sense mantras: “Tune out the world and tune into you” and “I don’t let others define me for me,” she said in the interview.
Ultimately, the bride-to-be has one goal in her fashion line: “I want to make every woman confident in what they’re wearing.” Do you shop Simpson’s clothes? Do you believe in her body-positive mantras? Sound off in the comments!
It’s no secret that Jessica Simpson has been turning it out on the red carpet lately. And on Saturday at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, the star had her first glam gown moment since giving birth to her 10-month-old son Ace Knute, commanding everyone’s attention (and generating weight loss buzz once again) in a floral Carolina Herrera gown.

Jessica Simpson better get used to turning heads with her fit new physique. After hitting her goal weight last month, the star continues to work on her slim-down, stepping out in bright dresses that really showcase the result of all her hard work.
Most recently, she hit the red carpet in a slim-fitting yellow dress at the John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit in L.A. that got people buzzing, so we asked: What’s the key to the Weight Watchers spokeswoman’s continued success? As it turns out, diet and exercise (imagine that!); she’s still sticking to her points and remaining active at the same time, says a source close to Simpson.
