♥ life is like riding a bicycle. in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.

could be owned by steve madden by august 20, 2012 if she fails to pay back her
almost 50 million dollar loan that he took over for her last month.

while i do not currently own any betsey johnson clothes,
my mother and i own a fair share of her accessories, and the thought of
her brand being owned by steve madden just about broke our hearts!

given this rocky financial landscape, i wondered if there would be an air of
sadness at her show, a feeling of all or nothing–ness because the stakes were
higher, but instead i was surprised to find that it was quite the opposite.
picture of exuberance, confidence and most importantly: fun.

with necklaces that screamed "RIDE ME," her models pedalled,
skateboarded and strutted down the road–like runway and never looked back.
if ever a fashion show were a metaphor for the designer herself,
this would be it. life is like riding a bicycle.
you fall off, you get up, and ride on.

8 ♥ love notes.:

  1. Fantasic images, she never fails to do crazy cool things!

    Loving the bold colours, it is summer after all!
    p.s NEXT ship to US in 2 business days, see my comment on my blog!

  2. I didn't know that! Wow. Glad to see she's still doing her thing.

    Also, I love your new header! It's awesome.

  3. Oh wow... didn't know that.

    Love the color and the fun factor of the collection!

  4. Betsy Johnson is so classic and sucha source of inspiration. I'd be really really sad if her enterprise gets taken over by steve madden. But knowing how strong she is I am sure she will come back, one way or another.

    Love from Toronto, Canada

  7. I think fashion needs Betsey - she always remembers that fashion i supposed to be fun and she infuses that into her clothes and her shows. I hope she figures something out that will allow her to continue to be the force that she is!

  8. Love the dresses.


♥ tell me how you really feel!
