Hello 2011!

Well, it’s already the 5th day of the new year and I’m finally making a post. Not a great start for the blog, but I’ve had a really great start to the year! I have a potential project coming up that could change everything so stay tuned!!

I’m leaving for China in the morning and I’ll be there for a week working on Bebe and Rock&Republic and hammering out the details of this “potential project”… I’m super excited. :)

What are YOU excited about for 2011? According to some people it’s going to be the last year of human existence so we better make it count! haha.
I want to make some changes to the blog this year. I’d like to add a store to sell my shoes and my friends shoes (who are hopefully different sizes than me) to give everyone a chance to get some great previously loved shoes. I also have some Shoe Girl shirts that some of you may be interested in!!

In 2011 all the Betsey Johnson shoes you’ll see will be Steve Madden’s Betsey Johnson shoes. There will be a noticeable difference… here are a few of my favorite shoes from the last collection I did that you may or may not see since we had to stop shipping in December. :( Boo hoo hoo.


Anyway, here’s to a new year and exciting possibilities, and to your health and happiness!
Let me know if there’s something you’d like to see more of this year. What are your favorite kinds of posts? Suggestions? I’d love to hear it.

    The wedges were just posted on Mod Cloth… too expensive! I love Betsey and would love to stimulate its economy but I can’t at these prices :(

    Thank you so so much for your lovely comment ! It’s such an honour to get compliments from someone like you – what a career ! I love Betsey Johnson so much. I worked for Beverly Feldman some years ago, and I used to tease her, telling her to leave and work for Betsey instead ! Thanks again, and all the best, Anne

    Sounds like an exciting year for you!! I’m such a huge fan of yours and wish you the best in 2011! I love all these shoes too – my favorites are the white pumps with the floral sash – they are freakin awesome!

    As for advise on posts, I love when you post shoes you’ve designed and your outfit posts are always so cute!

    I love the idea of selling used shoes . I think thats a good idea. Just make sure they are in good condition. ;)

    I think posts on how to organize and maintain shoes are an interesting idea, specially because you know so much about it.

  • Lauren Jan.05.2011, 3:37 pm

    I adore your blog because I never know what I am getting into when I open a new post. You do a great mix of great shoes, terrible shoes, with a dash of personal life. Keep up the great blogging and shoe designing! Good luck with your new project–I hope everything works out for you! Happy 2011 :)

  • Esz Jan.05.2011, 11:19 am

    Oh my GOD I want those wedges!? Where would I be able to find them? Preferably somewhere that ships to Australia. Pretty pretty please!

  • william Jan.05.2011, 7:55 am

    Love the classic silhouettes with eccentric, over the top details. Very very Betsey.

  • orthopedic footwear Jan.05.2011, 7:45 am

    The shoes are just awesome!!! I like their colors and styles. Heels actually exercises your calves while you walk!! Not only that, but it holds your leg at a great angle that causes your butt to lift and your posture to straighten.

  • Miss D Jan.05.2011, 6:57 am

    Your Betsey shoes were always the cutest! Not looking forward to what Steve Madden is gonna do to that company’s image :(

  • Joanne Jan.05.2011, 6:45 am

    i love love love the pink and turquoise sandals! seeing these shoes made mo more excited for spring and summer.

  • Vivien Caffey Jan.05.2011, 6:39 am

    Love the pink one! Happy new year and have a great time in China. I’m a fan of bebe’s shoes so I’m looking forward to your designs!

  • Addycakesz Jan.05.2011, 6:26 am

  • RAC ATTACK Jan.05.2011, 6:14 am

    Celine, I am in love with the first two pairs of shoes. If I can find them somewhere, where would that be? I need to have these :D
