    Default Betsey Johnson handbag collection

    I have been really curious for a while as to why Betsey Johnson figures among the same group of designers as Coach, Dooney etc.

    When i visited Texas recently, i visited their outlet. And honestly, i have never seen so much patent, sequins, beads, frills and foo-foos crammed into 1 area than the store
    the store too was painted pepto-bismol pink and the curtain to the changing room was leopard print

    I seriously would not carry any of the stuff from the store (OK, maybe some of the watches were OK). To me BJ bags are in the same league as Kathy Van Zeeland.
    here are a couple of pics from her latest collection

    The only thing I have ever bought from her stuff was a Betseyville makeup bag.

    I think I only used it for about three months, it was bright and I never lost it in the bottom of a bag that way...

    Actually the cosmetic bag does look kinda cute. I guess in small doses the busy prints are tolerable

    I agree with FedUp. I think her little accessories are fun. And I'm thinking her accessories would look really cute in an all clear beach or city tote, a summer trend But her bags are another story. Just too pop for me.

    I think they are cute such as I did when Juicy came out but I think you would lose interest quickly, I ended up trying to go more classic and now only leather.

    That may be it. Because when i was at the outlet, there were two young girls who picked out a red frilly dress, with a flamboyant hemline with black polka dots
    I guess the dress was pricey b'coz one of the girls put it on hold for 72 hours and said she would get the money from her mom and come back.

    The store also had a large framed pic of the designer on one wall and her make-up was scary. I can see though that young girls would love it for it's vibrancy. It is just that some of the creations are boderline cheap looking (even if they are not priced that way).
