Before beginning their own back-to-school studies, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen unveiled their fall line of tween fashions (for ages 5 to 12) in Toronto, launching sales of their clothing at Wal-Mart stores throughout Canada.

"We just wanted to connect with everyone. I mean, to be honest, to be in some place like Wal-Mart where you can give your clothes to anyone, you know, and people can afford it," Mary-Kate said, as quoted by the Canadian Press.

"They have the most amount of stores, so it's more accessible," Ashley (in a green blouse with a black skirt) added, as Mary-Kate (in a vintage black cocktail dress) noted, "That was really important to us." The line is also available in the States.

It was a whirlwind trip up north for the 19-year-old twins, who revealed how fast on their feet they are when it comes to retail. "The clothes are so cute," said Ashley. "On little kids ... it's so cute with accessories and little details."

"I mean the skirt is very something we'd wear," said Mary-Kate. "There are photos of us walking down the street wearing a (floral pink bohemian) skirt like that."

As for their bobo "bohemian bourgeois" look, "Let's be honest," said Mary-Kate. "Kids don't wear gowns." Instead, their dust-catcher skirts and street-sweeping cardigans are "streetwear."
