The floors of the clearance section at T.J. Maxx, Macy’s, Ross, Big Lots…hell, even Goodwill…are getting a break in the future because they won’t be weighed down with all those cheap Ivanka Trump shoes and dresses nobody but late-night blonde anchors wear to interview Scott Baio on Fox News. Ivanka is quitting the fashion industry. If you hear a faint cackle over New York, don’t fret. That’s just the entire Vogue office.
CNN claims Ivanka has decided to ditch her fashion brand since she’s decided to pursue a career in public policy. That’s a fancy way of saying, “ain’t nobody buying this QVC-caliber shit!” I’m sorry, QVC. That was an insult to you. Anyway, the story goes that Ivanka’s line has been operating in limited capacity because it didn’t want to run the risk of any ethics violations or the notion that she’s profiting off her time in the White House (“HAHAHA! Oh, you almost had me there for a minute, Ivanka!” – anyone who read that last sentence). Unfortunately, per Ivanka, this means she’s going to stay in Washington:
“When we first started this brand, no one could have predicted the success that we would achieve. After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington, so making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners.”
Poor Dianne Feinstein didn’t run for an 800th term in the Senate to have to keep faking smiles at Ivanka anytime she wants something from the White House! Ivanka’s line has been under controversy since she basically viewed campaign rallies as a de facto fashion show for her line and would let people know what exactly she was wearing. Activists boycotted the line, and companies like Nordstrom dropped the brand from their stores. You know it’s bad when even Nordstrom is done with your ass. Ivanka was expected to make an in-person appearance at the New York office of her brand today to let them know what was about to go down. It only impacts 18 people, so I’m sure it will only be a matter of time before Bethenny Frankel just buys the thing, cuts out the tags, and markets it as SkinnyGirl business casual!
