Seattle Elite Yelpers Win The Chance To Hang Out With Fashion Icon Betsey Johnson!

The Seattle Elite Yelp Squad was offered a rare oportunity to attend a VIP meet n greet with none other than fashion icon, Betsey Johnson! After dozens of creative submissions to win a spot at the party, a handful of Elites were selected to join Betsey at her Seattle store for mimosas, makeovers, manicures, cupcakes and more!


With most items marked down an additional 40%, the VIP guests crammed into the 800 sq ft boutique to try on fun and funky dresses while a DJ spun some rad records and a burlesque troupe danced in the windows. And who could forget the complimentary swag bags!


Hundreds of fans outside were waiting for Betsey's arrival while the Elite members mingled inside taking photos with Betsey, listened to her speak about her new fall line, and danced with her when the right notes were hit. (Hint: She loves Gaga!)



Mini manicures and moveovers were provided by Benefit Makeup and Julep nail salon while Trophy Cupcakes generously fed the hungry tummys with specially Bet-si-fied cucpakes! It may have taken her 23 years to re-visit Rain City but this party rocked so hard we know she'll be back sooner rather than later!

Congrats to winners Lori M, Kelly D, Angel I, Erin B and Janelle A.

Special thanks to Lori M for being the on-hand photog for the event. Make sure to check out her blog for more info, videos and pictures of the spectacular event!

Stay tuned for more from Seattle! Until next time, SYOY 🙂
