BEING A BETSEY BABE
I have been rocking Betsey Johnson dresses since my Bat Mitzpha days, so I was soooo excited to have the opportunity to partner with the Betsey Johnson team on this campaign! My blog is an expression of myself and adding Betsey Johnson’s spunkiness was the perfect “extraness” I needed to get amped up for spring!
Like Johnson told “GMA” “I never wanted to go near fashion, I just loved sewing and I just wanted to keep doing it.” Similarly to Johnson, I learned to sew at a very young age. I’d beg my mom for fabric and then make myself and my friends clothing, pillows, and teddy bears out of it. Later, at Quaker school, I rebelled against the dress code by adding my own fashionable flair to the uniform. I got in trouble, but it was worth it! Then, in college I decided to concentrate on costume design, which merged together my love for theater with my fashion instincts.
Such a large part of theatrical fantasies come from the influence of costume designers, and that is exactly what drew me in as a complete theater junkie. The Betsey Johnson brand has always paralleled the same whimsical vibes, allowing me to step up my level of drama in my every day life whenever I’m rocking it!
The Betsey Johnson fashion empire celebrates femininity and strength across all ages. Just like the brand, HonestlyKate was made to inspire young woman navigating the ins and outs of New York City, trying to grow and curate their own futures. I know so many people trying to pursue their dreams in the Big Apple — and let’s face it, we all want to look good whether we’re on the subway, at a job interview, or just out for the night with our closest friends. You never know who you are going to run into, so go that extra mile, wear the Betsey Johnson Kiss Dress with the sparkly sneakers and soda can bag and go ROCK YOUR LIFE THE WAY BETSEY WOULD!!
