Betsey Johnson Going Out of Business

The lover of all things pink and leopard-print is going out of business. Betsey Johnson recently declared bankruptcy and now all stores are liquidating their remaining fixtures and merchandise. I stopped by the store at the Natick Collection yesterday and everything was 30-60% off. I’m sure the sales will only get better with time, but already the small sizes are disappearing quickly so if you’re interested in this last chance to buy your fill of poofy, sparkly, yet somehow-still-edgy dresses, head over soon before they run out of your size! I found a fantastic skull patterned sweater, but, unfortunately, even with the sale it was still out of my price range (and the only one left was the wrong size).

There is some good news: as of now it seems that although the high-end Betsey Johnson line is shutting down, the brand aims to keep a few “flagship-like stores” open and the lower-priced Betsey Johnson label found in department stores will continue to be available.

Congrats Seniors!

Here’s a belated congratulations to the Class of 2012! As Largeman said in Garden State, “Good luck exploring the infinite abyss!”

End of the School Year Update: Looking Forward

Hello everyone, and happy summer! I thought I’d give you a little end of the school year update on what’s to come on What Would Lucy Wear.

On Friday I finished packing up and returned home to Massachusetts. I currently have my hands full moving back in and making the belongings that took up two rooms all year fit in one. (Time to clean out my closet…the one at school was gloriously large, but it’s time to readapt to my closet at home.) However, I hope to post a bit this summer. Obviously, these posts won’t be about Skidmore happenings, but I’ll still find some things to write about, I’m sure. I hope to visit the Prada exhibit at the MET at some point and will write up a review of that. Basically anything fashion-related is going to be fair game this summer so we’ll still have fresh content.

Looking forward, I won’t be back on campus next semester, as I’ll be studying in Paris! I was recently accepted to the Paris Fall Seminar program so I’ll be heading to France in late August to study films, graphic novels, and of course, French. While abroad, I’ll try to continue posting (the resident director already mentioned something about getting me into a fashion show?!) and we’ll see about having someone back at Skidmore posting, too. We could have a transatlantic blog for a semester!
