While I had already heard the bankruptcy news surrounding Betsey Johnson I was very saddened to find this in my inbox this morning:
While normally my eyes would light up with delight from a great sale, the fact that I will no longer see
Betsey Johnson stores is really depressing to me. Just passing by her shops filled with bright pinks, glitter, sequence and bows, (have I told you all that I think I may possibly have been a drag queen in a previous life), makes my heart flutter!
For years I would walk past the local Betsey shop. Unfortunately at the time I had a minimum wage job that even made Target out of reach, so the lovely wares of Ms. Johnson were not going to happen. I told myself that one day when I had a "real" job that would be my first place to make a purchase. Well when that job came, along with hours and hours of overtime, I waltzed right into Betsey and bought myself the prettiest shirt I had ever owned:
Thanks for the memories Betsey!
