Bebe Work Wear! But WHAT KIND of work are you in????

I love waking up and having such amazing material just appear for my posts. I mean, this was just handed to me- I didn’t even have to look for it! Oh, I’m taking a big breath, (because some of the following images were making me giggle); I can’t wait to share this with you.

Bebe is launching its “New Way to Work It” collection tomorrow, touting these looks as inspiration for “what to wear to work”. Now, I do want to tell you: I Love Bebe… It is my go-to store for “hooker-high” heels and little Mini dresses for dressing up my 20 yr old “projects” to go out to some Hollywood club. As you know by now, I LOVE ME A BARBIE- My favorite kind of girl! However, I HARDLY think of Bebe (or can wrap my mind around it) that their clothing is acceptable FOR THE WORKPLACE. ¬†When you design, or style a girl, you have to ask yourself: “who is she?” and “Where is she going?”

I do think there are A COUPLE things I like, but the rest… (I would die to know what Anna Wintour would think). So please find their following “Mon-Fri” schedule, and tell me what you think! ūüôā

 

**MONDAY**

Monday option #1

This is for the Store Manager of Bebe. Or a Hostess at a hip new lounge/restaurant.

Monday option #2

If you look like you’re wearing a (version of) Chanel boucle suit; you’re on the right track. She’s got on hosiery (fishnets though- sexing it up a lil too much?) The shoes are alright, and the skirt length is juuuuust pushing it. but over-all, I like.

Monday option #3

And just when you though she went executive, wearing a nice pantsuit, with some tuxedo style trim, you see her shoes… the TOO HIGH HOOKER platforms she left on from the night before!!! That just KILLED¬†it… ūüė¶

 

***TUESDAY***

Tuesday option #1

Soooo……. Like I said before: “who is she? and where is she going?” … CLEARLY, this girl is NOT wearing this during the DAYTIME. This is a Bottle-Service girl at a nightclub…. Who would wear this in the daytime?!??!?! Can you imagine? If she had a secretary position, the only position she would be in is UNDER A DESK!

Tuesday option #2

This has me stumped… She’s wearing cut-off gloves. (When you style a shoot, it’s all about the accessories to give it some “pow”. But when you’re marketing a SPECIFIC campaign, IE: WORKWEAR, the stylist needs to EDIT and be REALISTIC!) The only place I can see this girl is modeling at a Car Show… with those gloves, all she can do is rev those guy’s engines.

Tuesday option #3

She’s cute, she looks fun. I think we can all agree that “leopard” is not directly correlated with “daytime work wear”, but overall this image is nice. How about she being a receptionist at a hair salon? GREAT! When she’s done, she can go out on the town right after with all her gays, without having to go home and change first!

 

***WEDNESDAY***

Wednesday option #1

Like I just said- The stylist is going OVERBOARD. Those earrings? Again? with THAT outfit? With a GOLD belt, and SILVER bag? Those SHOES are Tranny-Time!!! I don’t have a CLUE where this girl could work, because this is NOT a well done look…. The outfit looks cheap, and thrown together.

Wednesday option #2

The only thing she’s working, is this outfit,… going out at night! I can see her in NYC, with a hot guy, going on a date. The skirt is hot, (good length), and I like it with the bow belt. The style of shoes are on-trend with the “elf style” cut out, accessories are kept to a minimum (one arm). The clutch is rockin’, and the jacket keeps her warm as she walks down the block after her date.

 

***THURSDAY***

Thursday option #1

Seriously?!? What is this? Who is this girl?? WHERE is she going? First: this is horrible. I don’t know 1 GIRL who would EVER wear this. Second: There is WAAAAAAAY too much going on here!! The LACE shirt UNDERNEATH a SWEETHEART dress, WITH a WIDE BLACK BELT, WITH GLOVES??? TELL ME: WHAT JOB COULD THIS GIRL GO TO WORK IN WEARING THIS????

Thursday option #2

“TRANSVESTITE THURSDAY”. C’mon, Bebe….really??? LACEUP HOOKER BOOTS, with LEOPARD PRINT TIGHTS, with a top that has BOTH MESH SLEEVES AND LACE??? OMG, This make me laugh!!!! If some girl wore this to a job interview, I would turn her AWAY!!!! The ONLY THING IN THIS PICTURE that is worth looking at is the skirt….

 

***FRIDAY***

Friday option #1

So I guess Bebe took the whole “Casual Friday” to THE NEXT LEVEL…. or actually, a different level: A CHEAP LEVEL. These last Friday options materials are all really bad spandex outfits… observe. In this look: THOSE SHOES ARE FOR NIGHT-TIME. If you’re wearing them in the day, then you DO NOT have a normal 9-5 job. PAiring them with LYCRA/SPANDEX leggings and a PLAID CORSET are not appropriate either… WHAT JOB do you know of where a girl can WORK like this? I know… This can be uniform for the liquor girls who rep brands ¬†and give sample drinks at different events!!

Friday option #2

Either she’s the coat-check girl at the revival of Studio 54 club in Vegas, or she’s the hostess at Rum Jungle in ¬†Vegas. Basic black is great, but leopard belt AND LEOPARD WEDGES are a little much for your daytime law office gal!

Friday option #3

There’s that SPANDEX and MESH again!!!! And the SAME EARRINGS AGAIN. With this outfit, her job is a SPACE TRAVELLER. With all those shiny metal accessories, like that futuristic belt, cuffs, and metallic leggings, she can fight aliens, or work at Bebe Mars!

 

 

When all is said and done, these clearly are looks for younger girls, NOT PROFESSIONALS. Maybe their own staff wasn’t following their own dress code, gave them this new one, and decided to market it to the rest of the world in an attempt to make a little extra money! (BIG SIGH….) Either way, we all know that these outfits are for the girls who work IN the MALLS, not OUTSIDE the malls. I give Bebe an “A” for trying, a “C” for designs, and an “F” to the wardrobe stylist.

The Grammys, 2011: It’s All about the EGG

First off:  WHO THE HELL IS ESPERANZA SPAULDING??!?!?!?!?!?!

Yeah, we now know she has performed at the White House, and toured with Prince. AFTER THE SNUB. I am NOT a Justin Beiber fan, but C’MON: BEST NEW ARTIST?????!!?!?!?!? We ALLL KNOW IT SHOULD HAVE GONE TO HIM…WTF?!??!?

Some group, “Mumford & Sons”, (even that NAME is hideous) look like the new cast for “Deliverance”. Look at the tool in the trucker hat and Colonel Sanders tie… REALLY?!?! REEEEAAALLLYY??!?!?! ¬†THIS IS HILLBILLY TO THE MAX. And just watch their performance, (if u even can) especially the keyboard player. Then watch a Muppet/Fraggle Rock video… I rest my case…. weird freaks

Jennifer Hudson, in Versace. NOW THIS IS HOW YOU DRESS FOR THE GRAMMYS, FOR A RED CARPET, TO PRESENT YOURSELF TO THE WORLD.  Absolutely Perfect. L.O.V.E.

Rihanna. While she may be one of my faves, I think she took to a Valentines Day theme WAY to much. With the Red hair AND her body covered in Whipped Creme from a CAN???? (not really, but this John Paul Gaultier is not pretty).

Miley Cyrus in Roberto Cavalli. “Hey Miley, Zena the Warrior Princess called. She wants her costume back.”

Haley Williams from Paramour, in a custom Jeremy Scott…”creation”. ¬†This has got to be one of the UGLIEST things I HAVE EVER SEEN. If that thing was sent to me to have someone wear, I would send it back saying , “HELL NO! NOT EVEN FOR FREE!”. Horrible.

Jennifer Lopez in Pucci. This is the Hottest thing I saw go down the red carpet. Those LEGS! That HAIR! My fave spike Louboutins! The ‘come hither’ look!….

BUT THEN……

KIM KARDASHIAN! O..M…G….. F*** ME!! This is PER-FEC-TION!!! THAT IS THE BEST HAIR (even if extensions!) I HAVE EVER SEEN (move over Giselle hair). THOSE EYES!! (she has best makeup). THE BOOBS! (showing lots of skin, but NOT VULGAR!) and The Slit on the legs….. I want to find her, pick her up, and give her the biggest hug/squeeze, and yell,”THANK YOU!!!!!”

Heidi Klum & Seal. (SIGH…) SEALS SHOES!!! AGAIN!!!!! REAPEAT F******* OFFENSE!!! HE JUST WORE THEM @ THE EMMYS LAST MONTH!!!!!(check out my Emmy posting to see!) HEIDI- WTF is WRONG with YOU!?!?!! You’re who America and the world is supposed to look to for “STYLE”, and “FASHION”??? You let your OWN HUSBAND leave the house in a 90’s era 3/4 length Blazer? ¬†AND THOSE UGLS ASS SHOES ..AGAIN…. (BIG, BIG, SIGH…)

Nicki Minaj, in: a lot of leopard. I don’t know what to say, except: “RAWR”

Willow Smith, wearing Ugly. Oh, GOD, where do I start…..the SHOELACES IN THE HAIR? See, she’s too young!!! she doesn’t even know how to tie them on her feet! (Maybe her parents did it to keep her head ON when she “whips her hair back and forth, whips her hair back and forth.” And WHAT’S WITH THAT “clutch/bag/thing”???? A moving Carousel bag? It’s probably the Mobile that hangs above her crib…. REALLY?!?!?!?!?!!?!

Justin Beiber, in a white tux and kicks.  I like this (because I like white tuxes- wore this look for New Years- copycat) He looks great, eye catching, and PERFECT FOR ALL THE PHOTOS of his WIN (oops..) THAT HE SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED!

Katy Perry. I don’t care if it was ARMANI. Or that you “brought my ¬†own Grammy” ( her Grandma- cheeze)… WTF is with the WINGS? Just because you sang at the recent Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, it doesn’t give you the right to try and be an ANGEL. Your pretty, but your not a model. (I’m guessing she took a cue from Lindsey, and stole them after the runway show.)

Ricky Martin….the sexy singer, the new dad, the now out and proud gay man, (the man whose concert I have been to 2 times, have sat on the dancers bus, have met him twice, AND OWN his ¬†“Bon-Bon” Shaking Armani leather pants from “Living La Vida Loca” tour), the Latin lover that can do no wrong…sadly, he finally did. NOOO!!!! WHY!!!!??? the pants are TOOO tight ( I know, how can that be), and the boots heighth made his legs look shorter and stumpy, and that DAMN TIE kept twisting around backwards. I feel I will see this outfit mimicked in Weho. Ricky, for you- LESS is MORE ūüôā I will dress you!!

…..and now, the ARRIVAL of GAGA…..

…followed by her performance. First: the other day, was having dinner with friends, and we were all thinking of what she was going to wear. I said she has done everything crazy, she should go naked. And low and behold, this is as naked as you can get! Nude tones, and all the dancers stripped down to nude underwear. Am I on a GAGA trend? ¬†She ROCKED the performance, and SHE “whipped her hair!” Those prosthetic shoulder protrusions were certainly weird, but I would expect nothing less. In fact, THOSE shoulders started a trend…..that the next 2 below failed to pull off

Monica…. I didn’t mind it at first, but then realized that neckline is CHOKING her! She OBVIOUSLY heard about GAGA’s shoulders, and must have wanted in on the action. Maybe she thought, “If I have them, maybe my career will come back!”

And the Sadness continues with Snookie. those lame shoulder puffs? REALLY??! Who dresses her? WHO LIED TO YOU??! It’s like “Dynasty” gone all wrong… all that jewelry, the earings, the cuffs?? She looks like Chuy Bravo in Drag!!!

“Snookie?” Just call her “Sausage”.

Lastly, and I really want to know why…. WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING???!?! THIS IS THE GRAMMYS, NOT MTV. CLASS IT UP, DUMBA**. Even HE performed with Muppets! This GAGA egg thing hatched a BIRD, no, a PLANE, no… ELTON JOHN WITH A TAN? It’s just sooooo disturbing. Seriously: what sane person thinks, “oh that’s cool, I’m going to wear that..”. WTF & WLTY!

RED LEOPARD PANTS &¬†CLEAR HEELS‚Ķ (SIGH)

So I was in Bev Hills having a wonderful brunch not too long ago, and what passes me by? This lovely ensemble…. RED LEOPARD PRINT PANTS with CLEAR PLASTIC HEELS. I think I dropped my fork…(thank GOD I didn’t spill my Mimosa!) ¬†This girl had a Chanel bag, Chanel flower pin, and Chanel ring (OK, WE GET IT: YOU LOVE CHANEL)…. BUT HONEY: W(hy)TF are you wearing THAT OUTFIT??? You obviously have some $$, so USE IT and ditch those pants and heels!!!! (and while ur at it, buy a brush for you and ur friend, because that hair was HORRIBLE!)

SO: the red leopard pants- IF they were on a MODEL type body, in a night club, with a HOT backless top, and AMAZING heels/boots…. i would MAYBE let it slide…. BUT THOSE SHOES… (omg) are for strippers, hookers, drag queens (well, not high enough, so maybe beginners). WHO WEARS THOSE IN PUBLIC, ON THE STREETS, DURING DAYTIME, AND IN BEVERLY HILLS!?!?!?!?

Remember all the looks Julia Roberts character got while walking on Rodeo Dr in Pretty Woman? ¬†THATS the kinda look I was giving this girl, and I’m sure so were all the other Fashionistas on that block!!!
