Bettie Cover

a bettie page fashion show (plus my very first giveaway ever!!!)


I’ve been a big fan of vintage-inspired Bettie Page Clothing for years, even making a pilgrimage to their San Francisco shop a few summers ago. Now Bettie has finally come to me! 

I heard about the new Bettie Page Clothing boutique on the border of the East Village and Nolita by way of fellow blogger Jasmin Rodriguez of Vintage Vandalizm. Last weekend, I was lucky enough to attend “Bettie on the Bowery,” a New York Fashion Week event hosted at their new NYC location. The Saturday evening soirée showcased the upcoming spring fashion collection as well as the launch of something altogether new and exciting. Before I let the cat out of the bag, here are some of my favorite looks of the night from both on and off the runway:


i don’t wear pants, but if i did, i’d hope to look as sassy as jasmin does here.

As you can see, Bettie Page Clothing’s retro silhouettes are super flattering! Designed by Russian-import Tatyana Khomyakova, each piece is simple and classic, but also full of spunk and personality! And now all that chic fun comes in a very special new package…
