After months of brainstorming solutions and plan revision, Betsey Johnson LLC has exhausted all of their resources and, we are sad to say, have filed for bankruptcy. Within the next few weeks the brand known ‘round the world will be closing its 60-some freestanding stores and letting go of over 300 employees.
Though we are sad to say goodbye to the eccentric fashion shows Betsey Johnson has been putting on for years and years, we are happy to say that this is not the end of Johnson all together!

Every girl-on-the-go is pinched for time at some point or another, and every now and then, she may lack the inspiration to make a quick turnaround from the daytime look to one she can wear out on the town. Well have no fear busy beauties, Joonbug is here! We have come up with 5 great tips that can help you to create the perfect day-to-night look without having to stop at home or pack a duffle on your way to work.
Tip 1: Let’s start with shoes- Slip into a pair of your fave heels!
There is no better way to turn a day look into nighttime style than by ditching the flats and pumping it up (literally!) For those who don’t want to endure the “torture” of the 5-inch stiletto, we have the perfect solution to the misconception that beauty=pain. Check out the Cole Haan collection by Maria Sharpova. With concealed NIKE AIR technology leather, lined leather mid-sole, and stacked heel rubber sole, these babies add comfort to style (also available at Macy’s and Nordstrom). Once that’s taken care of, throw on a pair of your favorite skinny jeans and you’re good to go. We know, not all are fans of the skinny jeans, and if this speaks to you, try a trendy wedge sandal with your simple skirt or dress. It is the perfect variation of high-heels that is comfortable and sure to add flair to your look.
It’s official; Macy’s fashionistas sure know how to throw a great party. In celebration of the brand new INC collection and Editor at Large Kate Young, celebrity stylist and fashionista in her own right, the store hosted a stylish soiree last night. It was fashion with a view, if you will, at Le Bain atop The Standard Hotel. Against the backdrop of the Hudson River and New York City’s sparkling lights, the collection was presented on mannequins and a few stylish live models. But we’ll discuss that in a minute; let’s talk more about the party.
