So, whenever I heard that Betsey Johnson was creating not one, but TWO inexpensive lines . . . I basically had a heart attack on the floor. My subconsious was on a shopping spree for the fabulous bargains. An inexpensive line from my idol was LONG overdue. More overdue than blankets with sleeves (God,why did I think of those wretched things???). Anyway, I got news of these via facebook and was exstatic to think that the "wild child innovator" of fashion finally jumped on the bandwagon. Who knows? Target seems to be the ringmaster these days of the circus of inexpensive designer hybrids. Maybe Betsey will strike a deal to offer her pieces in stores where the average American can just take a hop,skip and a jump to get to "Betseyville" heaven? Hey a girl can dream right?? Then I thought, okay Casey, inexpensive to you might be like merely under 500 dollars to the fashion execs in New York. As a positive suprise, guess what my fellow fashionistas?? UNDER 100 DOLLARS!!!! Holy Crap, they understand the potential buyer. I find this somewhat genius because think about it?? A Betsey orginal for less than a weeks worth of groceries?!?
From the looks of the line this doesnt look just like, oh well, it's inexpensive so lets make a cheaper looking version but itll still have her name on the label so itll all just be "handy dandy." Far from sterotype of inexpensive designer hybrids, my dears! It looks very preppy yet funky back to school in the 80s. Well, class in 5 minutes but I will update later, PEACE!
