Were you a Barbie-loving 90's kid? Do you love all things fashion? Enter the world of Tiny Frock Shop, where high fashion runs on a much smaller scale. And I mean tiny. The online shop is exclusively for Barbie and all her style and accessory needs. Pamela Thompson, experienced designer, mother and Barbie fan, is the woman behind all this mini couture.
Thompson lived in New York City for eighteen years, and worked as a designer for major names like Betsey Johnson, Heatherette and Anna Sui. After giving birth to her daughter, Lily, she left the city and moved back home to Chicago. Read More

When I think of “Making it in America” I imagine a life full of making it rain, throwing drinks in other people’s faces, bling bling, and of course, being able to lounge around in a Juicy Couture tracksuit 24/7.
While The Real Housewives franchise may have seriously influenced my opinions on the American dream, I still believe that success should be measured in expensive loungewear. What else says you’ve made it like a $300 matching, brightly-colored, velour tracksuit with rhinestones that exclaim that your butt is, well, Juicy. Read More

After filing for bankruptcy last spring, Betsey Johnson has risen from the ashes like a hot pink, sparkly phoenix. That’s right, on May 12 Betsey is set to star in "Xox Betsey" on Style Network, and it looks like quite the party.
"Xox Betsey" let’s us pick the mind of the quirky fashion legend and her relationship with daughter Lulu. That crazy kind of mother-daughter dynamic is something particularly intriguing, as it may serve to humanize the exaggerated, eccentric character of BJ. Read More

Betsey Johnson is back! In an amazing comeback, Johnson has returned to the fashion scene and seems to be here to stay.

Johnson closed with a retrospective runway show at New York Fashion Week in September that celebrated both her career and her 70th birthday. Read More
In a reality show meets crazy fashion success story, Onch of Paris Hilton's My New BFF 2008-2009 has become Nicki Minaj's sort of go-to-guy for crazy food-related jewelry, which includes this hot pink fried chicken wing necklace from a recent appearance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. I'm kind of obsessed with how ridiculous this looks. The necklace is so bad, that its gone past bad and into awesome, which probably describes most of Nick Minaj's wardrobe. Read More
Spring is in the air, which means so is prom season. In celebration, a few designers and models have released prom photos of themselves from back in the day. Amongst the adorableness is Betsey Johnson who, turns out, was prom queen in the frilliest, puffiest, pinkest dress imaginable. This picture just makes me so happy because, her hair might be kookier, but really not much has changed. Would you expect any less from Betsey?
