If you are unfamiliar with this young luxury denim brand, below is some info for you.

“This Amsterdam-based denim brand was born in 1989. G-Star RAW has become synonymous with intricately tailored jeans and streetwear for both men and women – the result is urban-inspired, go-anywhere clothing to suit any style. Initially focusing on raw denim, unwashed and untreated to shape this industry and push it to a more eco-friendly direction.”

G-Star Raw had one of the quickest rises in the history of denim and the brand continues to this day to push the boundaries of contemporary fashion. It is the second top selling denim brand of all time and has earned a loyal worldwide following.

Raw, untreated denim is now what G Star RAW is best known for. Producing jeans and other denim products in their most natural form, unwashed and ready to be individually sculpted to each wearer. The most recent milestone for G Star RAW was forming a partnership with Pharrell Williams in February 2016. The musician and record producer is now co-owner of the famous denim logo.

It is through Pharrell Williams that the brand has launched one of their most exciting campaigns to date. Raw for the Oceans focuses on taking recycled plastic from the ocean, and using it to create new items of clothing. This draws on one of the brands key focuses: sustainability. With sustainability, they aim to give back to the environment everything that they take out.”

This July, this cool brand will open its new store in Detroit! What exciting news! I have loved all my jeans from them simply because they are like shape wear for my body. Lol! As you may have already noticed, I can wear them while doing any activity. I just ran on the track last night wearing them. I have also done yoga and even tried doing the splits! I guess I need more practice for the splits though.

The best part about my jeans is their specially curved high back rise waistband which prevents any gapping. This ensures a flawless, second skin fit. It has been carefully designed to hug your hips and waist to embrace your figure and fit like a glove. Don’t change your body, change your jeans.

My jacket and bag are both from G-Star too.

Meeting With America’s Punk Fashion Queen Betsey Johnson

About 10 days ago I received an email asking if I would like to meet with Betsey Johnson before her public appearance at our local Macy’s. I instantly jumped up and down. Heck YES! She has been my inspiration for years!!! If you don’t know much about Betsey Johnson, here is some very basic info about her from Wikipedia: “Betsey Johnson is an American fashion designer best known for her feminine and whimsical designs. Many of her designs are considered “over the top” and embellished. She also is known for doing a cartwheel ending in a split at the end of her fashion shows.”

I can’t remember the exact moment I first encountered her designs, but I do remember every time I saw her products in a store (it seems like you can find her lines just about everywhere), they always brought a big smile on my face. They’re made for girls who refuse to grow up. After I read more about her, I became a big fan of hers. Betsey Johnson has never been one to blend in. She is a walking expression of youthful joy, an inspirational icon, long time breast cancer survivor and has several lifetimes’ worth of accomplishments. At age 72, she won the CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award, and did the splits on stage again. That was 3 years ago! She is totally a cool kid!

You can watch this FB live to see her line and some of her products that I found at my local Macy’s last weekend.

Hi guys! I am so lucky and feel blessed! Because the For Ever Fun Betsey Johnson has invited me to meet with her tomorrow before her public appearance at Macy’s in Somerset mall Troy, Michigan. I will spend a whole hour with her!!! I can’t believe it!! Please send all the questions or comments that you would like me to ask or pass on to her. If you are in Michigan, please stop by at 2pm to see her at Macy’s in Troy! @macys @betseyjohnson #BetseyBabe #BetseyJohnson #betseyheartsmacy

I bought this dress from her newest collection at Macy’s that night too. It is so comfy and feminine with an old Hollywood vibe.

You can also watch this FB live to see her public appearance at our local Macy’s. It is quite long, but I promise you will see her at the end.;) She is totally a people person and loves hugs! It was very cool that she remembers some of her long-time fans and loves spending time with them.

Watch this live video which I final met Betsey Johnson! You have to come back to read my post and find out why we laughed so hard!!! She is so nice and funny! @macys@betseyjohnson#BetseyBabe#BetseyJohnson#betseyheartsmacys

In the photo below you only can see a very small portion of the crowd that day. The line was so long so it wrapped around the whole store a few times. People just love her! From very young girls to grandmas, her 50 years as a fashion icon has earned so much love through her free-spirt and up-beat fashion!

By the way, are you curious about what she said that made me laugh that hard? Lol, you will not believe it. When I asked her how she can keep her young and fun spirit forever, she thought about it for a few seconds and she said “Because I have a 48 year old hot boy friend!”

She is seriously the coolest, warmest, funniest and cutest 75 year old women I have ever seen! Now I know everything is possible, as long as we don’t let our inner child ever die. She is the perfect example for many women who are struggling with their identity. Just be you, fully be you. This method is already approved by America’s Punk Fashion Queen Betsey Johnson: it is good enough, just be you!

I was quite surprised to find out that Steve Madden is one of her best friends. I interviewed him last year too! You can read about him here. I was also very blessed to have the chance working with Stacy London as well. You can read about that experience here and here.
