Over 350 fans turned out to Nordstrom at the Grove in L.A. this Saturday to get a first-hand look at Fergie‘s new footwear line. And while the style maven sipped iced tea and signed autographs for waiting fans, she dished with PEOPLE.com about her recessionista-friendly line, priced between $69-$129. The expansive collection — aptly named Fergie — includes everything from signature zip-up gladiator heels to chic flats to strappy sandals adorned with peace signs and sneakers emblazoned with the singer’s initials. “I would feel really irresponsible right now to have a line that was completely out of my fans’ price range, so I feel really good about it,” she said. And inspiration behind the collection came right out of the newlywed’s real-life experience, with husband Josh Duhamel having an unexpected influence on his wife’s favorite pair from the collection, the “Pepper” gladiator platforms. “You know I’m 5’4″,” she explains, “So these are for girls like me who want a little height — especially being that my husband is almost 6’4″!”

But it wasn’t just footwear that was on Fergie’s mind. The former blonde explained the decision to go brunette. “It’s kind of a new era for me. I’m married, new Black Eyed Peas [album], getting back with them. I’m in a new place in my life and just evolving, and I wanted a change. And I’m not scared of change at all.” So comes the age-old question, do blondes really have more fun? Apparently not, according to Fergie. “I’m really having fun with it,” she said. Another major upside to the darker do? Getting to wear pink again. “It’s just funny because I didn’t want to look like a complete Barbie doll before, but now it has no relevance,” she says of reintroducing the rosy shade into her wardrobe. Tell us: Are you still loving the Dutchess’s new do? Are you excited to try to step into Fergie’s shoes? –Reporting by Jenny Sundel

Ugh, Meth head and way to much plastic surgery

Jason on

She looked better in Wild Orchid, before the drug effects started settling in. You’d have to pay me to bang this broad now

Stella on

Her shoes are WAAAAYYYY to expensive for the quality. I got a pair from Nordstrom’s and they are not made as a high quality product.

Sue on

She looks haggered as a blonde or brunette, she used to be pretty but after she pissed in her pants she’s lost it.

Olivia on

She has a fat face

Jeanette on

Nice buttchin Fergie!

GlamourGirl on

She is really fat, used up and old looking. The meth she used to take is def ruining her.

Wow Fergie, I bet your husband cheats on you. You are a complete and total screw up and you look like white trash.

GlamourGirl on

What a mess she turned out to be.

Danny on

I don’t see what the big deal is with her, she’s not hot.

Fergie doesn’t look too bad as a brunette but I think she looks much better as a blonde! Concerning her clothing line: I for one would love to try her clothes, shoes and other accessories, however, right now I do not even have $69 (the low-end of her clothing line’s price range). Just goes to show you how the rich and famous live in an unreality bubble of what their fans’ lives are like at the present moment. I do wish Fergie lots of success with her new clothing line!
