A Little Old, A Little New...

All you need to create something astonishing is hidden in the past. History is a wonderful source of inspiration, of knowledge.

I believe this year's Betsey Johnson Collection has this explosion of the New and the Old. I believe that she not only combined elements from past designs (like the flower on the dress - that was pretty typical of her designs in the 90's) but she has a marvelous representation of past decades of fashion history colliding with modern looks and uncontrollable splashes of color in every piece.

I just had to pick my fave designs from this Fall's collection to show you all. =)
Enjoy!!

j













Isn't she awesome!! Ok, so I love her style and how she does the cartwheel in every one of her runways; so unique.

Oh, tomorrow is finally my 23rd b-day! Yes, I'm ultra excited even though I must go to work and proceed with my everyday weekday tasks, lol. I can't help but feel that I'm getting older and it does somewhat frighten me. Still going to Hard Rock Cafe and I solemnly promise to take lots of outfit pics with whichever camera I can find. =)

By the way, must let you guys know that I'm opening a cute second hand clothes shop. I realized after buying my bass guitar that I needed an amplifier so I had an early "spring closet cleaning" and am getting rid of all those garments that I either haven't used EVER, or have only worn a few times. So if you all have a chance, please check it out. I'll be adding things as quickly as I possibly can.

So, are you totally in love with Betsey's new collection? Which is your fave design?
Hugs and Teddy Bears!

  12. Your dead right hun, that's what makes her designs so marvelous a mish-mash-mix-up of different decades. Her colour way is always so fresh and bold too.

    By- the -by you me should hit Japan, right now! And shop until we drop...though seems we have such similar taste, there may be some fighting over frocks hehehe (:

    you have a brilliant weekend love X

  24. I'm not a huge fan of Betsey Johnson, because her designs have always looked a tad tacky, but I love all the details in this collection. The hats are so cool.
