479eaf9e.pngThis time of year, most of us are pretty much broke; between the wads of cash that we so generously spent on people we really couldn't afford to, and the amazing "deals" on fabulous items we couldn't even dream about buying before the season was over (not that they aren't probably still overpriced) there's hardly anything left for... Valentine's Day!

So it warms my heart (or maybe that's just the extra insulation from the dough lining my pockets,) to know that Tara Subkoff is doing a line for Bebe! I mean sure, she leant her name to Easy Spirit before, but those shoes were way too editorial, and nowhere near reasonably priced. This time around, however, the prices range from $59-$189. The feel is very '40s, with a hint of pinup. I can't wait to add the Ruffled Wrap Dress to my collection of "fabulous and (subsquently) memorable items" that I can, for that reason, only wear a handful of times. But its the "nature of the beast," I suppose. Besides, a portion of the proceeds goes to charity. See, we all win!
