Pretty in Pink for the Holidays at Betsey Johnson's Plaza Pop-Up Shop
Love pink stuff? Love New York City's The Plaza Hotel? Hate the high prices ($75 headbands!) of the pink-perfect Eloise shop at The Plaza? We're with you all the way. There's some relief however, as The Plaza has just opened a Betsey Johnson holiday pop-up shop in the lower-level Shops arcade at the hotel.
We just went and roamed around it ourselves, and though it's itsy-bitsy, it definitely packs the pinkest punch. The store associates told us that Betsey wanted the shop chock-full of accessories, and that it is; her sparkly jewelry, funky watches, quilted clutches and even winter hats are everywhere. Rest assured they've got Betsey's signature clothing line as well, in all its crinolined, punky princess glory. The only thing iswhen we expressed interest in a particularly stunning necklace but in a larger sizewe were told that items are already beginning to sell out. Thankfully if you're that hard-up for something sparkly to wear to your holiday shindig, there are other Betsey shop locations around the city.
If you go, the Betsey Johnson pop-up is only open until January 9.
For an added dose of Betsey, you can attend the unveiling of The Plaza's Christmas treedesigned by heron November 28 during a one-time-only "Tree Lighting Tea."
