I think this is the post everybody has been waiting for on ‘It’s Thursday Tho?’.  Am I right?

The day HAS ARRIVED – I have my very OWN collection available to buy on www.betsybluefashion.com

This is NOT merch. These are genuine items that I have designed with every type of girl in mind. You don’t have to be a fan of mine to purchase these clothes. These are designed for EVERYONE. The theme of the line is cowboy/western inspired. There are tracksuits with guns ‘n’ roses graphics, lace t-shirt dresses with edgy prints, mesh bodysuits, lace up party dresses and jumpsuits, star print gym wear, star print dresses, lace bardot tops and cool AF cut out tee’s with slogans such as ‘A Cowboy Stole My Heart’. There’s also HANDBAGS with the cutest cowboy boot charms! _t5c1045_v2

A LOT of hard work has been put into this collection; with my filming schedule it was hard but I was determined to release before Christmas. So there’s no excuse to not treat yourselves to some gorgeous outfits for all the Christmas festivities and parties that approach. Or even whack some of the items on your Christmas lists or buy for your friends and family! They are guaranteed to adore. Each package comes with a custom postcard.

Here are some photos of the LINE!


We shot the edgy campaign shoot on a real LIFE Western village outside London (FUN FACT: Johnny Depp filmed ‘Finding Neverland’ there!). A massive shoutout to our incredible hair and makeup team Charlie Wilkinson and Abby Rose and Tomo Kembery on the camera!_t5c0897_t5c1137_v2_t5c1195_t5c1267_t5c0742Follow the brand new instagram page for my brand at: @betsybluefashion

FACT: Winter is super great for chic, long coats and furry jackets but NOT great for all our cute tops and crops. 

So I got sent this lace, camisole from Goldie and whilst I absolutely loved it – it had me thinking ‘how can I show this off without having to drown it in a huge coat?’. Then I thought – ‘Ugh, I wish my furry roll neck jumper was cropped so i could sling it over the top to keep warm but still see the cute top’ … bingggggggo. LETS CUT THE JUMPER! And here were our results.. cute right?

Everything you see minus shoes are Goldie – even the jumper I cropped is from their previous season coincidentally! I also got this deliiiiicious trench coat…

LOVE a novelty bag and this bag is certainly that with a high fashion edge – and guess who loves it just as much as me? VOGUE! 1020-1

I saw this amazing Pingu collaboration with Rodnik and knew I had to grab one straight away. Luckily Nicole Levy PR had one on hand to PING over. Pardon the pun.

Lets face it – we all love Pingu. And we all love PVC.. this jacket is from H&M’s new collection and is so affordable! PVC is just all that more noticeable than leather. Cami – Pull&Bear, jeans – vintage, choker – La Nuit London, Shoes – Ego.


So EVERYONE’S been asking where this outfit is from in these pics that were released earlier this week. I had to do a post! This jacket is a dream and although it’s pretty pricey – it’s definitely worth it for the Gucci vibes.

Scroll to the bottom of the post for the break down. And GUYS – if you’re reading, you can also purchase Casey’s outfit at the bottom too.

It seems as though the jacket hasn’t been released yet – I will keep my eyes peeled for you but other exact items are linked below. My INCREDIBLE handmade, Coco Chanel bag was purchased in Ibiza from a boutique store called B London. It brings me to tears when I think about how dreamy it is…..


Here is my last instalment of my self styled shoot – there’s 3 looks on this page by ultra talented photographers Faby&Carlo and makeup by Kristina Theodoris.

Hello my blog babes’! So excited to share this shoot with you styled completely by ME.

In the past I’ve had some amazing stylists assist me on shoots – mainly because I was so busy working, I didn’t have time to ‘pull’ the clothes myself. However, now things are a bit more laid back for my and I’m the director of MY OWN career – I love nothing more than styling my shoots. It makes you feel so much more of a ‘use’ rather than just being the product of a photo. And of course -there’s nothing more important than feeling comfortable and how could you not when you’re styling yourself? That being said – I’ve recently been asked to style some pretty cool people (those I cannot name!). If I wasn’t so busy with my own career then I would totally love to do that. 20160216-04

Anyway, here is my most recent shoot with the incredible Faby & Carlo. I love working with these two, they capture every moment so tastefully as well as being the most incredibly kindest people I’ve ever met in my life. And of course a shoot with me would not be complete without the makeup maverick Kristina Theo! Kristina created my makeup looks and James Tarquin was on hair. Stay tuned for the next instalment of photos by this great team next week!

One thing i’m loving at the moment is the concept of long/fancy dresses with the casual/flat shoe. Nothing works better – especially a bright shoe. It makes the dress that little bit less ‘serious’.20160216-2120160216-2620160216-28

I wanted to post something with a difference – something I felt was a little more personal. Whilst sorting through my old laptop, I came across hundreds of old photographs. Some hilarious, some embarassing and some surprisingly cute. It made me realise just how much changes in such a short space of time. I haven’t been on this planet for particularly long but in that time my appearance and style has varied. Even from one year to the next – it’s shocked me how much I’ve changed.  I’m sure you guys have the same reaction when you look back at old photos… Like, WHY did anyone let me go out the house looking like that?! haha. I would love to see some throwbacks from you guys, tweet them to me! And just so everyone’s clear, It’s super hard to find exact year after year photo but the photos are in age order obviously!

Enjoy xo

First of all I’d just like to say a massive thanks to one of my fans Emelene Kennedy for the cutest artwork of me in some of the outfits featured on this site and my instagram (@betsy_oty). You are truly talented!
