Funny, you can always find something in her collection that you have forever, even if you think you're not a betsey girl - she's like magic! and her shoes are adorable too!

She's a wonder. I don't wear her stuff, but I admire what she does.

Enough can't be said about Betsey. Nobody has ever come close to matching the beautiful, unique, playful style she STILL creates with her work. Happy Birthday Betsey!

Oh wow! I'm waaaaaaay late but I just came across this. I painted that Betsey/Wonder Woman piece. Betsey's business partner actually bought it from me at an outdoor show in the Hamptons to give to her as a gift. :-)
