We celebrated New York City Fashion Week with Bettie Page on the Bowery, where retro fashion is always timeless! Their throwback pieces to the 1950′s remind me of flipping through photos of my grandparents during their newlywed days, (minus the pink hair!) Unlike thrift store finds which are hit or miss depending on what’s on the rack that week, Bettie Page makes all their pieces today, and has sizes to meet the needs of every woman.
Along with the Spring 2013 fashion show, we also got a sneak peak of the Fall 2013 collection (skirts will only be getting fuller ladies, and get ready to incorporate 50 shades of green into your wardrobe!)
Couple that with hors d’oeuvres and champagne, and it was truly a day to celebrate fashion that makes us nostalgic but keeps us in style.
