Tara Subkoff for Bebe

When I first heard tell of Tara for Bebe, I squealed inwardly with excitement, images of her relatively fabulous/quirky personal style, her much-coveted-by-me Easy Spirit line (I never mustered up the cash for a pair of my own), and her adorable character in The Last Days of Disco flitting through my mind gleefully. And then the photos surfaced…overly Valentine’s-inspired (this is relevant for approximately one week of the year) and cheesy. I can barely recognize Tara through the wrappy ruffles and am pretty sure that lookalikes of these items could be find at any cheaper mall store. I suppose I expected more of someone with such close ties to Sevigny. The stripey top/skirt ensemble is cute but I’m pretty sure that everyone already has some version of these items in their wardrobes. Props for the monochromatic red outfit though, pretty intrepid for a company as mass as Bebe.

However, a couple clicks through their shoe section had me lusting after these two-tone sandals. Bebe can always be relied upon for having a couple lustworthy, almost misogynistically vertiginous heels. These would be perfect for achieving the Teen Vogue-inspired ankle sock/strappy sandal look noted previously.

Haha how cheesy was that title. Anyway, with fresh spring merchandise hitting stores as we speak, I’m getting more excited about what exactly I’m going to be putting on my must-have list. Here are some of my favorite (pre-blog) pictures of me from last summer I thought I’d share, photography courtesy of the boyfriend except the last. Excuse the trashiness of that shot, it was his birthday and he miraculously didn’t end up contracting footworms.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back. My poor mother looks so stressed out.

Denim on top

Stretch denim in the form of not-jeans…scary territory. This denim dress is sadly more of a tunic so I decided to innovate and wear it as a top. It’s a tad bulky underneath the thinner cotton skirt but the full pleats kind of allow this to be masked.

Denim dress, secondhand. Scarf and skirt, vintage. Bag, vintage Chanel. Sunglasses, picked up this weekend at Urban Outfitters. Jewelry, F21, H&M, and vintage. Boots, Jessica Simpson.

Creamy lace heaven

Once in a while in my travels, I come across a truly breathtaking vintage piece that actually makes my heart start pounding harder. I saw all the potential in this one when I picked it up, but I think the fit even exceeded those expectations. I think I would actually describe those sleeves as glorious and mean it. Alas, I can’t keep every vintage gem I find..my puny closet that my boyfriend has already sacrificed most of for me doth overflow. Up for auction on eBay right now, ending on Wednesday.
