When I recently noticed that several new Betsey Johnson clutches had been added to the inventory on Nordstrom.com, I couldn’t have been more pleased. I’ve always been a big fan of how Betsey’s glitzy, girly, over-the-top aesthetic translates to fun, inexpensive bags that any young girl with an outsized sense of style would be happy to carry for a night out, and to see her embrace that market just makes so much sense.

Something like the Betsey Johnson Betsey Soiree Crossbody Clutch may be utterly ridiculous in a large bag, but in a small bag, it manages to be utterly ridiculous in a good way. Since that balance seems to be exactly the one that Betsey wants to strike, I hope that we see more clutches like this in the future. (more…)

Sequins? Check. Leopard print? Check. Pink? Check. The Betsey Johnson Sequincy Me Shopper is a trifecta of tacky and I couldn’t love it any more if I tried.

Well, that’s a lie. I’d love it more if the shape was more interesting and more high-end looking, but as it is, it’s a lot of trashy fun. We all know that I like to dabble in The Land of Questionable Taste from time to time, and this bag has the 80s glam rocker inside of me itching to get out. Do they still make AquaNet hairspray? If they do, I feel like owning a can of it should be a prerequisite to buying this bag. (more…)

You know exactly what to expect with a handful of designers. Case in point, Betsey Johnson. I never expect to see something boring or detail-less when I see her name attached to anything. Frankly, it’s simply not her style. Moreover, I don’t know what I would think if I saw just a plain black bag. I might go into some kind of handbag shock. (more…)

So here is the deal. I don’t really like Betsey Johnson handbags. There are just way too out there for me. At the same time, I can totally take that flashy aspect when it is a demonstrated on a smaller bag. Today was the first day, I think ever, in my entire life, that I came across a Betsey Johnson bag that I really liked. (more…)

I’m going to see Lady Gaga tonight in Atlanta and I couldn’t be more excited – I’m a total Gaga fangirl, and I’m almost as excited to see what everyone else will be wearing as I am to see the show and hear the songs. Lady Gaga inspires crazy fashion creativity in her fans, and there’s little I love more than some good people-watching.

I don’t think that the Betsey Johnson Hottie Spotty Velour Hobo is quite cool enough for Gaga herself to wear, but it has all the elements of a potential addition to an outfit that could be worn to one of her shows. (more…)

Betsey Johnson Whips and Studs Small HoboOur commenters: oh so helpful!

I wrote about the Betsey Johnson Whips & Studs Satchel a few days ago, and one of our readers smartly pointed out that not only is there a smaller hobo version of the bag, but that Nordstrom has it discounted right now!

The bag still has a lot of the attributes of the larger version, including the very pretty studded top flap, but it’s in a small, arm-carried shape that would be great to take from day-to-night, as long as you don’t have to carry a ton of stuff with you. And at less than $150, there’s really not much thinking to be done here. Buy through Nordstrom for $129.90!

Betsey Johnson Whips & Studs Tote

Y’all? Are you guys seeing what I’m seeing? Because if more Betsey Johnson bags looked like the Betsey Johnson Whips & Studs Tote, I’d have a whole closet full of ’em, particularly at sub-$400 prices. (more…)

My first response to the Betsey Johnson Sweet & Tart Hobo was, of course, “Oh, honey. No.” Because it’s Betsey Johnson, and if she’s on her game, then that should always be the first thing that springs to mind. She’s all about shock value and bold statements, even if those statements are always in the best taste. Good taste gets boring after a while, anyway.

But her genius has always been in getting you to take a second look, which is what I did here. And when you get past the fact that this is a red plaid handbag, things start to make a little more sense. Trust me on this one. (more…)
