Bye, Bye Betsey
It’s safe to say I’ll be in mourning of Betsey Johnson designer stores for the remainder of this year. Not because I wear her clothes these days… but because she is the spunkiest 60-something woman who walks the planet!
All of those trips to Stanford mall with that hot pink and yellow store being the first sight to greet me as I head towards Bloomingdales are forever in the past. I mostly only went in that store during the months preceding my high school’s homecoming dances. God, it’s easy to find a dress for a 15-year-old in there.
Before you let those tears pour, know that Betsey will not be gone forever. Even though her high-end women’s apparel isn’t making it, she will continue making sportswear and Betseyville accessories. Phew!
