Sorry I have taken long in posting my Day trip to NYC last week. I do not post during the weekends because I like to spend my time with family and friends or doing other things that I enjoy in life; but instagraming is another story *wink*
A few months before I was invited to attend Dana Maxx Fall 2013 press release ; I fell upon an awesome, fashionable guy on instagram named Micah Jess. Turns out MJ is a celebrity fashion blogger and TV personality, who like myself adores Betsey Johnson. During the Dana Maxx event guess who walked in? Why Micah Jess. I recognized him right away and introduced myself and after a while our conversation went betsey-ified. MJ asked if I liked Betsey and invited me to come out to this magical event. This event took place May 16th @ MACY's in Herald Square. It was open to anyone so I had to wait in line like everyone else. I did not mind because I was going to meet My John Hughes of Fashion BETSEY JOHNSON once again xoxo My first encounter HERE!
I arrived super early with my niece and I am glad I did because I was able to take photos of Betsey's new dress collection for Macy's. Also, this was Betsey Johnson's first public appearance since her show hit the air on the style network. Micah kept the night going with background beats from celebrity DJ Kalkutta as we waited patiently. Then there she was, MY JOHN HUGHES OF FASHION. As we waited our turn, we were handed a complimentary BJ tote bag with a mirror. We were all asked to place our belongings, camera and cell phones in the totes, because they wanted their photographer to be the only one taking the photos; to keep the line moving. I did not mind because I was getting a print-out of the picture. Awwww MY JOHN HUGHES oF FASHION was so sweet and happy to see me, not sure if it was due to the many colors I had on or she noticed her Lobster necklace I was wearing...oxox I squeezed her so tight and wanted to take her home with me. I know this is not the end, I'll meet her again and next time it will be at her fashion show or out to lunch. Either way I'm so happy to have had the opportunity to meet her again. What a special moment in the fashion world and here I was a part of it somehow.
