More Betsey!

Ah. Ah! A lovely attendee of the Betsey party caught my magic moment with Queen B herself in a photo. I'll never forget this moment.
She hugged me as said, "You made this?!? You're amazing!"

B, it was such an honor to be a part of the festivities and to meet you. I am humbled. You make fun clothes that are affordable. THAT is truly amazing. You're making high fashion fun and wearable and within reach of the every-girl. Sure, we'd all like to own a $5000 Louis Vuitton handbag, but that is only reality for a small community of people. Althought that is wonderful; making a collection that is chic, interesting, fashion-forward, and accessible is more valuable to women everywhere.

You're fabulous, beautiful, and I just simply adore you.
(We listen intently to you!....)
(We *heart* Betsey!)

I love you Betsey!

Oh. My. God.

What a day. The Atomic Bombshells danced in the window of the downtown Betsey Johnson store, and throughout her appearance at the location. Immediately upon arrival, she hopped up in the window and danced to Gaga's Telephone with us.
She hugged me, and said, "You made this! You're amazing!"
Le sigh.....*I'm twitterpated.*

She was so gracious and wonderful, telling us how happy she was we could be there.
Oh B, it is us that are thanking you. Thank you for being so innovative, and lovely, and fabulous. It was such an honor to be in your presence.

A Mother/Daughter Photoshoot Like You've Never Seen Before

My mom called me about a month ago, and said, "Jamie, I want us to do a Photoshoot. Like, a Mother /Daughter Photoshoot, but not cheesy. I'm looking pretty good for my age, so I'll wear whatever as long as I get really big hair."

Oh yeah. So I enlisted the help of the genius JiJi Lee Photography, and we spent an evening shooting some glamourous, and some hilarious photo sets.

Mom is such a good sport when she comes into the city and plays dress up.
Here's a few snap shots of fun things we've done in the past:
