I remember cashing my first pay check after college thinking, “Wow, I can afford some cute clothes at Bebe now.” Oh, how times change. Nowadays I subscribe to Bebe’s emails just to get notified of their newest selection of cheap and tacky designs.
For example, I got this email a few days ago from Bebe. It’s a bold guide of “what to wear” the entire 4th of July Weekend.
I admit, the white dress is cute with a blazer for dinner and drinks.
But the black “dress” looks more like a tank the Real Housewives of OC would wear to Pilates. I’d never “hit the dance floor” with a rhinestone “Bebe” across my chest.
The Sunday dress looks like a throw blanket my grandma could sew. Stripes are great, BUT the “Downtown Fireworks” dress is all WRONG. Bad color combo, bad design, unflattering and it’s $79.
CuteIsn’t this a shirt?EwTacky
So why am I bagging on Bebe? Because 90% of the clothes I bought there in the past fell apart, lost buttons or had bad zippers that broke after the first few times I wore them. Plus, their designs are poor (for the most part) and their cute clothes are NOT worth the prices they charge. I said bye to Bebe years ago, but maybe you’ve had better luck shopping there.
Do you have any stores you liked in the past, but you’re just so OVER now?
