Happy 30 Years Betsey!

Without Betsey Johnson, I would have gone to many high school dances naked. She was, still is, my go-to designer for funky party dresses, and for that I am thankful. What would you like to thank Betsey for? A vintagey frock? A rocked out handbag? A ruffled cardigan? Girlie jewelry? Betsey is celebrating 30 years in the fashion business this year. Her company remains privately owned, and she currently has more than 70 stores worldwide, 800 wholesale accounts, and 10 licensees. But most impressive of all, Betsey has remained true to her ultrafemme, ultrafun aesthetic. Join me in wishing our favorite cartwheeling designer a big congratulations by testing your Betsey knowledge — how well do you know Betsey J?!


Happy 30 Years Betsey!

I would have gotten the last one if it wasn't so misleading. It said "except" meaning what WASN'T in there, therefore "all of the above" would be incorrect!

Wait a min, she started out in the 60's, so its 40 years. What gives?

I actually got to thank her in person about 10 or so years ago! I adore her feminine, fun dresses, and have always been a huge fan of her prints -- always so fun! BTW, all these "tattoo inspired" designs? Betsy did an old school tattoo print close to 20 years ago! (Really cute mermaids, and sailor girls, etc.)
