XOXO Betsey

Last night while I was snuggled up with a bad case of allergies, I was watching television when I came across XOXO Betsey--fashion icon Betsey Johnson's new reality show about her and her daughter, Lulu.

I had read the articles and seen the trailers about this show but I never caught it live. After watching the full hour, I had become addicted. I couldn't turn away.

I have always been fascinated by Betsey Johnson's clothing line; she was so out there, so bubbly, and so fun. I've now learned that the lady behind the ruffles and sparkles is out of her mind.

Ms. Johnson is like a breath of fresh air, she is unlike any 70 year old out there. She is full of life, champagne, and flirtatious ways. 

Watching her life unravel in one episode and learning about her past, present, and future was enlightening. I love watching the business side of fashion so seeing Betsey be in a meeting, wearing a full sparkled jacket, with Steve Madden was like candy for me.

It's shows like these that give me a burst of inspiration; it makes me want to get up and do something. There was one scene where Betsey was in the back of a cab and she had her sketchbook out and was scribbling something down. She was talking about where she finds her inspiration and it was so magical to watch--someone as legendary as Betsey Johnson hard at work, doing what she does best.

I will definitely be looking to watch this show again and again--I love reality shows like these, that have a meaning.

XOXO Betsey gave me a stronger appreciation for Betsey Johnson fashion. It's so crazy and girly--there is nothing more fun than a Betsey Johnson piece, whether it's a watch, a bag, or a dress. Everything that she puts out has heart and ruffles in it.

After the show was over, I immediately went to her website to scope out some of my favorite pieces and this is what I found.













Retro Polka Dot Frame (MY FAVORITE! I will definitely be purchasing these at some point in the summer)
