Betsey Johnson makes my Lust List pick of week for her fun and ubber girlie bags that are available at Dillard’s and Macy’s  and although nothing will compare to the magic of walking into the now closed Betsey Johnson Boutique back in the day, Walking around with her adorable Vegan Leather Pieces is a nice substitute here’s my top 5 in fun functional spring bags from Betsey Johnson.

1.)Must Have: A Cross body- Something small and compact that can go from walking around Clyde Warren to boozing around Uptown in a breeze. I love the Girlie fun of this Rose cross body

2.) A tote; Throw it in the bag and Go. Betsey Totes have her signature Gold link chain handles that’s make them just a little bit fancier and easy to dress up or down. You can fit all the essentials like your back up flats and water bottles for a fun day of shopping.


3.)Business Fun: One of the overlooked points about Betsey Johnson is that she can add a girlie edge to grown up pieces. In recent memory BJ has become a staple to teens and young adults but her handbags are high quality with details that will appeal to the girl and the Woman in you. Case in point the Heart quilted tote bag Big enough to put your tablet and other Grown up lady things!

4.)A Zip wallet: The wallet on a string Concept is brilliant its a cross body when you need it to be and  wallet when you don’t . Minimize your clutter and take what you need in one of these


5.)Something Insane:  This is a must for every Betsey Johnson lover every collection there is something so iconic and bizarre that it will serve as your “members only” jacket in the BJ fan club my pic this season is the adorably quirky Ice Cream Cone Bag or the Pop art inspired cross body’s with phrases such as LOL and OMG! These bags aren’t to be timeless they are meant to represent a particular silly moment in time where “Selfie” made the dictionary get some of the sugary sweet fun before its gone.
