Snapped at a wall near my home, on the way home from the Blondie and The Pretenders gig. A bit dishevelled, a little rough around the edges.

Bebe Outfit Post – Bebe Addiction

This weekend I managed to wear 2 of the Bebe outfits I purchased while in Malaysia. I was in the Pavilion in Kuala Lumpur when I wandered into the Bebe store….and saw so much gear I was in love with, I was staggered! Since I was off to Sipadan the next day, I decided to wait til the following weekend to try on and buy….and boy, did I!

Combine a graphic black & white print with armour, a la Sass and Bide, and you’ve got me. I couldn’t go past this magnificent top with metallic embellishment, and decided to wear it to the Deathrock night last night (hence the “out there” make-up and old school hair, which conveniently matched the walls):

I wore it with a tutu skirt and some Black Milk skeleton tights (not seen here). I like to think you can be fashion forward, even at a music night that looks backward to old-school goth and deathrock.

The night before, I met up with the fabulous SuperkawaiiMama Candice for a night of Maximum Ska. To this I wore my Bebe leopard dress with empire line waistband – I would NOT normally ever wear brown or camel, but this dress was too beautiful to pass up. Due to the weird cold snap Sydney was experiencing, I had to wear a black skivvy beneath, and over the top I added the tribal Spike Necklace from Tree of Life.

There were metallic beads and mirrors embellishing the waistband, the detail of of which you can see here:

The bottom half of the dress was in a crisp material which was ruched – both an appealing feature and flattering for those of us with lumps and bumps there!


I can’t wait to wear it again without the skivvy for a more elegant and summery look. There are similar dresses still at Bebe, and I have to admit I love the entire collection called Bebe Addiction. So glam, so rock-chick!

Check it out and let me know what you think. I think I may well get a Bebe Addiction myself 🙂
