A few posts ago, news broke of the Simmons Jewelry Spongebob collection.

Now two members of the Simmons dynasty are making another money-making announcement.

Vanessa and Angela Simmons have formed a partnership with August Accessories.

The company will design, manufacture, and sell the new Pastry Accessories line.

According to a statement, the girls will be a major part of the design and creation of the accessories, which arrive in stores fall 2009.

Look out for watches, hats, and cold weather accessories from the Daddy’s Girls stars.

They’ll  be available at “better department stores and specialty stores” nationwide.

Price points? $15.00 to $150.00. Not bad for us recessionistas!

According to Associated Press reports, Payless has got until the end of the year to get rid of all remaining K-Swiss-like inventory.
