Bye, Bye Betsey

by Addison

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!
