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! 🙂
This is for the Store Manager of Bebe. Or a Hostess at a hip new lounge/restaurant.
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.
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… 😦
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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????
“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….
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!!
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!
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.
