For my first designer corner I have selected the wild and wacky Betsey Johnson, one of my personal favorites. You know her for her bold designs, sweet as sugar tea party dresses, and mixing of rock-star punk and girlie glam.
These are my tips for shopping Betsey:
1. The jewelry is worth checking out! If you cannot shell out $400 on a dress, or do not plan on attending a country club wedding in the next month, you can spend a lot less for a one-of-a-kind and simply adorable accessory.
2. Look for Betsey trademark items. It would be absurd to pass over all the pink tulle and buy a basic LBD. If you’re going to be shopping Betsey you may as well buy like Betsey…her clothes did not become famous because they were plain and demure.
3. Shop for yourself, but keep in mind not everyone will share your opinion about how fabulous your new elaborate top is. Because some of the clothing is a very loud and a particular style that appeals more to females, you may find yourself with a baffled boyfriend left wondering why you are buried under complicated folds of flowered fabric. However, as long as you’re confident and love it, you will pull it off. Other people will see you as cool for being yourself and rocking something unexpected.
4. They carry relaxing but insanely sexy pjs and lingerie that might be more agreeable for your boyfriend than the cupcake dress we are both drooling over.
