    I even named my handle after her (I shortened it to BetsyJo, because I thought her full name was too long for a handle.)

    Here clothing are quite different from Marc Jacobs. I think it takes an eccentric personality to wear her clothing.

    there is a time and a place for betsey...she is a very new york girl designer...my little sister adores her dresses (and she has a LOT of stores nowadays)...i think she doesn't design for the woman so much anymore as much as for the younger client

    i agree. they are not for me.
    but i still love some of the things she has made, i just dont buy them. her personalirt just comes through in her designs in my opinion. :)

    she has a vibrant energy and I have to be honest and say that makes me take notice more of her clothes but in a playful way. i don't mean to say she is not a 'serious' designer but she does offer a lightness and sometimes looking at her clothes makes you love the little girl in you she is like a female peter pan never grows up and that is a compliment. the world needs a little betsey i think. :flower:

    I don't think her designs are as interesting as they were in the 80's and before then. Everything looks the same every season and in every collection. For as much energy she has she's certainly lost a bit of it in her work.

    my older sister wore a lot of betsy in the 80's and early 90's. to be honest it isnt the best quality. :unsure: she gave me a jacket, i took it to the cleaners and it fell apart :unsure:

    Her present work seems a little repetetive season after season.. and as Lo said the quality doesn't seem impecable. :unsure:

    Plus it seems not much thought is place in her work. :doh:

    Betsey Johnson clothes are fun and playful. More often than not, particularly on the sale rack, there's something not-so-runway that's worth the price.

    Pairing her stuff with a more sophisticated/mature piece adds a bit of rock to a girl wants it while not going overboard CBGB.

    Her season to season collections may not differ that much, but I'm Betsey Johnson is one of the options. As for quality, I think it depends on the item, so that could be a big con. Tops are going to last but bags might have the longevity to pass down to your daughter.

    I LOVE her work, although I do agree that her stuff gets quite repetitive.

    I think she caters to multiple styles and personalities. My style tends to be more toward the eccentric side, which makes it difficult in finding clothing for special occasions. Her designs are perfect for me.
    One of my good friends has a completely different style. She loves dainty, feminine things, and still finds many items from Betsey Johnson that she can easily wear.

    Never heard of her until just now but I really dont like any of her designs.
    The only thing that I saw on the website and liked was a few pairs of sandals.
