Bebe/Vogue Spring ’09

A smile covered our faces when we walked into the Bebe store on Oak Street for the Bebe/Vogue event. This exclusive evening previewed the Spring 2009 collection and because Bebe knows that Chicago weather takes a little longer to get warm, they opened a raffle. Every guest had the opportunity to enter to win a 2-night stay at Fontainebleau Miami Beach and a $500 Bebe gift card!

Bebe's Oak Street location is 3 stories of shopping bliss. The store was filled with a beautiful, diverse crowd, real life models and stylish spring wear, while guests enjoyed the cocktails and hors d’oeuvres that were served.

The theme for their Spring collection is Safari. This makes the color palette soft, sweet and very wearable. There were feathers, ruffles, tight cocktail dresses and flowy spring dresses. We fell in love with the liquid zipper leggings but they sold out immediately after models paraded through the crowd. Very impressive were the shoes, and in our opinion, the Rome Leather Sandal is something every woman needs to strut on the streets!

Also, can we say how much we love the ad campaign for this collection? It reminds us of the faded look in D&G ads and the garden in bloom gives us the romantic feeling of picnicking in the park.
