Update: Tara Subkoff for Bebe

I stopped by Bebe the other day to check up on the Tara Subkoff. Very little was still in store. I tried some of it on weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised with the cut and quality. Here's what I liked:

These high waisted sailor pants ($129) are great: good cut, long wide leg, I loved them. And can I buy another striped shirt? Well, according to Tara Subkoff, yes. It it adorable. There are several striped shirts still in store, and there's one pair of the pants left in an 8. The salesman commiserated with me as we checked the size: "Oh, no, I don't think...these ran really small," he said as he looked me up and down. Ouch, but he was right. He also said the line sold well, and the trench was gone in the first day. Trench! I missed the trench?!

And here's what looked scary on me:

This was one of the few items that didn't sell out and was shipped away. Ruffles just aren't for everyone. But I think some rockabilly, tattooed pin-up girl type would look amazing in this. Find it in the Bebe outlets.
