There’s something of a frontier feeling to this line, with its desert 
palette (camel, sand, ivory, with pops of fiery red and a trickle of 
blues) and a flurry of fringe (hanging off bags, the back of cropped 
vests or the front of bra tops).  Lace cut-outs (on blazers, skirts) 
offer a modern twist.  And we defy any Bebe shopper to get out of the 
store alive next spring without purchasing one of the zillion or so 
handkerchief skirts or dresses, in peppy prints.  One cautionary 
note:  Two black lace numbers got way too Frederick’s of Hollywood.  A 
hint of skin is sexier than an anatomical road map.
