The A List: Betsey Johnson

Betsey Johnson


Betsey Johnson is a fashion icon and has her clothing has influenced and inspired people all over the world with her fun and playful style. As for me, I have a close connection with her line, Betsey Johnson was my entire youth. I wore her dress for my eighth grade graduation, my high school graduation and all throughout my college years.  She was a staple in my wardrobe because her styles are flirty, fun, sexy, and colorful.  I felt like when you bought her clothing you really were showing a part of your personality and spirit through it.  Betsey is a visionary in the fashion world and created her own path, she inspires women to have fun with fashion and enjoy what you are wearing. In 2004 Betsey turned her boutique brand into the Betsey Johnson label which expanded into a lifestyle brand that includes intimates, handbags and leather goods, footwear, bridal, kids,  jewelry, eyewear, swimwear, luggage, home and so much more.  I am beyond excited for this Saturday, April 7th you can come see Betsey Johnson at Macy’s, South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa! She will be there from 2-3:30 pm showing her newest collection.  This will be an event that you don’t want to miss!  I can’t wait to go!

Today Betsey shares some of her favorite things and some beauty tips with us!
