Things I Love (to Wear) RIP Bebe Edition

When I saw on WWD that Bebe would be shutting down its brick and mortar stores to focus on its online business I was shocked. What is a mall without an empty Bebe surrounded by teenage girls laughing at the freakum dresses in the window?

There’s nothing more delightful than a classic Bebe logo tank. It reminds me of summer camp counselors, crunchy curls, cleaning ladies, and babysitters. Get one while you still can!! Nostalgia’s working for us and these tanks are gonna be BIG in a few years. I look forward to going to a bar I’m too old for and seeing art school students covered in body glitter wearing Bebe tanks with platform sneakers and listening to frightening music I do not understand but thoroughly enjoy.

Herve Leger bandage dresses may not be in style anymore, but they always will at Bebe. Where will the Real Housewives of OC buy dresses now? How will that one girl who really loves horses turn it out and surprise everyone with her boobs at prom?

This is actually just a cute dress that I likeI’m not supposed to buy more clothes but, like, I’m sure they’re going to have some great sales in store. What if I just hopped on over to the mall and bought a dress? NBD.

Things I Love (to Wear) Service Industry/All Black Edition

The great thing about working in restaurants and other customer facing jobs is that so often the required apparel is a great reflection of the soul-crushing work we do. Why don’t you look cute while you wonder how you got here?

This Storets top is an acceptable take on the cold shoulder trend. Plus it makes you look like a ball busting bitch (in the best way possible).

These high rise Reformation jeans are interesting enough to wear outside of work but still basic, high rise black jeans. Get it.

These Carhartt Overalls come in black so I’m sold. I love that Carhartt became a chic streetwear staple a few years ago. Like, okay! Let’s all wear sturdy construction wear! I’m into it! They make women’s overalls but they are sold out and do not come in number sizes so I don’t trust them.

Allbirds in black are a lightweight alternative to black New Balance dad shoes. Full disclosure, I don’t own these, I’ve never worn a pair, and I don’t know anyone who does. I have read a lot of reviews online about these shoes. Apparently, they’re pretty comfortable and machine washable. You should probably put appropriate podiatrist approved insoles in them.

These Doc Martens aren’t black but I wear them to my restaurant job and pretend they are all the time. They’re comfortable. They’re vegan. There’s a reason why all the bartenders at your favorite bars wear them.

Things I Love (to Wear) S.A.D. & Pink Edition

There was one week where it felt like spring and everything was good and right in the world (hahaha just kidding, Donald Trump is our president and my bank account is wasting away). Let’s go back to that week. Or fast forward to when it’s warm again. Either one works for me. But what are you gonna wear after this journey through time?


reformationkingpin.jpgThis Reformation top is a real gem. I guess it’s not weather specific but whatever. Pop it on over some frayed edged ankle jeans and drink some beers in the sun. You deserve it.

These ASOS mules are Maryam Nassir Zadeh knockoffs but, guess what, I can’t afford the real thing. So I ordered these at 2 AM when I was sad and could not sleep. Then there was a snow storm and now they still aren’t here.


This Loeil dress is velvet so probably great for winter but its cut and spaghetti straps make it the perfect dress for climate change addled transitional weather. Also, it reminds me of this matching velvet turtleneck top/mini skirt combo my great grandmother and I used to wear. Let’s ride this velvet trend hard for the next few months until we’re all absolutely sick of it.
