STYLE & FASHION || BETSEY JOHNSON REFINED? [14]



Anyone who knows Betsey's deigns (or Betsey), knows that refined isn't exactly the word you'd reach for if describing her and her work. While I support the free spirit Betsey often channels in her designs and personal style, I have never really been one to put my money where my mouth is and give in to buying one of her eclectic designs, until now. She’s a creative, an alumni of my university, and a person who seems to deviate from the conventional. I have admired her for quite some time and even more so now after her latest collection. Believe it or not, Betsey Johnson has refined her designs, giving room to a more sophisticated playfulness, but a playfulness, none the less.



Johnson has partnered with Urban Outfitters to create a sort of ode to the ‘nineties' (according to Refinery29). The collection feels a lot lighter than a typical Betsey design. Her voice is still there, but there is also an airiness about the collection that drifts it into almost minimalism. It’s rather interesting to see Betsey’s voice come through in this new way. I like it and I look forward to seeing her develop this further in her personal brand. Go Betsey, go.

TIBI + FIT + YUNA YANG + CLYDEEE | NYFW F17

I had the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week recently. If you know me or this blog, it's been a very long time coming. Ok, maybe like three years but still it was a plesant surprise to receive my first real invite to a NYFW show, this side of the continent***. I felt truly special, as NYFW  seems to set out to make one feel, with the stark scent of exclusivity. But I also knew almost immediately, I couldn't let the opportunity pass me by. It was practically divine. On the very same day I looked up the dates for this past season's show, was the very same day I ranted about the state of NYFW, and the very same day Yuna Yang sent me an invite. Something much larger than I was at work, so I took heed and followed through with the prompting (Thank you sweet baby Jesus). Yuna Yang



Entering from the End || On ALL NIGHT of LEMONADE by B

I am listening to “All Night” and I am in tears. I am crying from the inside-out. There is no flood, just pain (and healing *rolling eye emoji).



FORurinforMATION.

Listen.
And yes that word counts as a B reference so let's just start there.
