Closet Raid Preview: Betsey Johnson Pink Lace Dress

by jennine on June 24, 2011

Sometimes, I’ll fall in love with something, and even though I love it, even though it physically “looks good” on me… for some reason, it doesn’t work. As a grown woman, cutesy isn’t exactly the first look to go for. Every time I wear pastels I feel like a fraud. Especially wearing pink. Even more so wearing pink AND bows! But hey, a girl’s gotta try new things! Yesterday, we did a photo shoot to create stock photos for IFB posts, and I thought it would be cute to wear something a little vintagey and cutesy. I bought this Betsey Johnson dress last year at Beacon’s Closet after seeing a similar dress at the Betesy Johnson store in ivory for ten times as much. I guess it just never made it to wear until now, in fact it was going to go on sale at the Blogger Closet Raid tomorrow…. I’ll be selling lots of lovely pieces that I love, but honestly can’t wear for one reason or another like a silk Prada blouse… so hopefully you can find something that works for you! Hope to see you tomorrow!

Hi, the dress is adorable! But I believe Betsey is spelled with an E…xox

It’s a super cute dress… and it does look great on you. I think it’s the color? Like if it were in olive green and sans bow, I could see you wearing the hell out of it.

How cute is that last picture?!

Lots of success to the Blogger Closet Raid- I’ll be thinking of you all!

The dress is really cute, but I know what you mean. It would definitely work if it was black. It does look cute though!

OMG I am in LOVE with that dress! IN LOVE! I, too, like the look of pretty girly things, but they just don’t always work on me. This dress looks AMAZING on you - fun and summer-y without being too “little girl-ish.” FAB!

I think you look fantastic in pink, as a matter of fact you are smiling hehehhe. But perphaps you feel safe behind the more suttle colour. After all if an outfit doesn´t make you feel wonderful, it better goes!!!
Have a fantastic sale.

I like the girly Betsey Johnson dress. The pink is very pink, but that’s why I like it. The dress also seems bit retro. =)

That dress is exquisite and I don’t think it’s too cutesy at all. Pink, lace and bows are always a lovely, feminine choice. It’s nice to embrace being a girl in an unapologetic way sometimes.

This dress is amazing. I really like how you’ve done your hair, really gives your outfit that 1960′s vibe!

cutesy and pink. pink falls often into that cutesy category. but the dresss is awesome. the shoes add a more nastier look. compared to the dress

You look so amazing! I adore the colour so much, and the lace is very pretty
