But back to Betsey! I received a PR invitation by email to attend (I felt so VIP! HaHaHa), but I couldn't get there because of an important prior commitment. I knowwwww! Booooo! Hisssss! I was pissed! I also missed Christian Louboutin at Saks Fifth Avenue last year (but ummm you had to buy a new pair to meet him...sooo, i didn't have THAT kind of extra money to spend. hahaha)!
But don't despair my sweet peeps! I located pictures and also a delightful video from the event that should inspire you. She walked in second lining with an umbrella and threw trinkets at the crowd (like a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans). I love Betsey's LOVE for our city!!! I love Betsey's ENERGY! I love how she keeps moving FORWARD despite it all! I LOVE the pink tutus, cartwheels and splits! I love Betsey's ATTITUDE! She states in the video, "The way to have fun is to entertain yourself with your clothes...with your gadgets...and i like color... and little things to look at all the time." Betsey wants us to have FUN!
