Betsey Johnson Celebrating 68th Birthday with Lookalikes

I love Betsey. She is just the right kind of crazy. The fun kind!

I cannot believe she recently celebrated her 68th b-day! It just goes to show, if you love life and don’t take yourself too seriously, when you hit 68, you won’t look a day over…

Anywho, I love Betsey’s designs and have for a long time. What I love best about her is if you take kooky, and reel it in you get creative AND accessible. You get clothes that are fun but wearable. Sure, not everything goes in the closet, but things that do are so interesting.

Perfect example is in this piece on her site:

Stunning, simple BUT with a twist. I cannot wait to pick up these fun pieces as well:

wallet

“Making clothes involves what I like…color, pattern, shape and movement…I like the everyday process…the people, the pressure, the surprise of seeing the work come alive walking and dancing around on strangers. Like red lipstick on the mouth, my products wake up and brighten and bring the wearer to life…drawing attention to her beauty and specialness…her moods and movements…her dreams and fantasies.”

– Betsey Johnson
