a letter to bebe "SPORT"

dear bebe "SPORT,"

please notice that "SPORT" is in quotations.  it's in quotations for a reason.  i have a few things i think we should clear up.  maybe you can give me some satisfactory explanations; though, i find that doubtful.  my first question is what the hell does the word "sport" mean to you, bebe??  when i see the word "sport" behind any clothing line's name, i think athletic wear.  i.e. things i can wear while running, biking, hiking, walking my dog, going to the gym, etc.  am i wrong for thinking this?  is there a new definition of "sport" that i am totally unaware of?  the reason why i ask is simple and plastered all over your ads.  for all of the visual readers out there, let me illustrate:



please tell me, bebe "SPORT" designers, would you wear this little number to your gym's spin class??  i'm pretty sure those shorts would ride up and you'd give your little pikachu a serious infection.  and i'm sure the guy on the bike behind you would have trouble focusing on anything other that what was bobbing up and down in front of him.  i seriously doubt even eva longoria herself would wear this.



seriously, bebe??  really??  i'm pretty sure no one will be biking the MS 150 wearing this little top and hot pants.



then there's this catwoman suit.  i'm so confused here i don't even know where to begin.  stilettos, leather, a huge handbag, and basketballs??



i don't have a clue where this lady in red is going but she sure as hell could not contain her girls if she wore this shit to the gym.  i can't tell if she's going to the club or going for a run.

so bebe "SPORT", i'm sure you can appreciate the dilemma i'm having.  i would really appreciate it if you dropped the "SPORT" from your so-called athletic wear line.  let's just call a spade a spade and be done with it. 

your friend who loves cute, FUNCTIONAL workout clothes and not the shit you claim as being such,
meredith

haha this is hysterical. The leather getup...seriously?! I'm lucky if my workout pants and t-shirt don't completely clash with each other when I go to the gym.

Brown Girl said...

Seriously Bebe, you are stupid and so are all your lame work out clothes. ie. catwoman suits. And by the way, the shits too damn expensive as well, so shove that up you butt!

:) Love you blog.

CurlyGirl Darc said...

i could not stop laughing while reading this..you are hysterical!

Marian said...

Bahahahahahaha. I love this. Now, what would only make this better is if I were to see someone at the gym with one of these outfits tonight.

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Girl. I wear all of this during my triathlons. Particularly the heels. Gotta question for you. Email me back from this would you?

Candice said...

I simply wear a thong and a sports bra to my gym.

JUST ME said...

I like to wear a catsuit and heels when I play basketball too.

Masala Chica said...

I don't know what is up with that. Everybody knows that most people exercise naked anyway. Oh - they don't? Sorry. I was confused.

BTW - Eva in that plasticky looking suit? That is what I ran the marine corps marathon in. that fabric is great at wicking away moisture.

Mrs Montoya said...

Fantastic! They even spray painted basketballs to match the cat suit. That's some serious marketing to some demographic I'm not aware of. Perhaps they're huge in Europe?!?!?! Funny ass post. Love it

saltsays said...

Is pole dancing considered a "sport"? Because if so, I think Bebe nailed it.

B-Dub said...

Perhaps if I had that kind of body- which I like to think I did at one point before having kids and gravity took hold, I would wear those outfits. Prolly not the catwoman suit though, I do have some standards...

Concord Carpenter said...

That is one funny post... Where can I get that cat women suit for my wife?

At least I'm skinny said...

Those shorts wouldn't cover my ass BEFORE I got on the bike.

carrie1 said...

I love that you said "little pikachu"! I about pee'd my pants reading that!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

BAH! I couldn't even wear this stuff outside of my house let alone to the gym! YIKES!

Aunt Juicebox said...

If I had that body, I'd wear that stuff just to LOOK like I work out, and then I wouldn't work out. I'd just like, go shopping in it, or to the library.

Ed Adams said...

I see absolutely nothing wrong with these outfits. They seem likely perfectly fine gym attire for you to wear, and me to drool over.

meredith said...

take it from all the men to say these outfit are totally acceptable... typical, boys.

Cathy said...

So I should cancel my Bebe Sport order? Damn. Oh well, they probably don't allow that kind of attire at the local YMCA anyway.

Kinsey Michaels said...

That is pretty hilarious, especially the pleathery looking get-up. I remember when Bebe Sport used to have a store in one of the malls I used to go to, and I think it shut down since nobody was buying anything from them. Hahaha. xo

Lindsey said...

haha hilarious.... these ladies in the ad look like they are ready to do a different work out! Totally not something you could, or would sport at the gym!

Rasha said...

Too funny.. I love this.

jessalyn said...

today i am wearing what one would think are work out clothes (not like those up there, more like regular people work out clothes) and all i have done is work in them (like real work though- at a computer, not like monique work). maybe if i put on something like any of those outfits i would actually move my ass...

Meagan@Megs7827 said...

Maybe I need to buy some of this. A little girl I ran past this weekend said, "Daddy is that a man? Daddy, is that a man with a pony tail?" Yeah thanks little girl.

Shandal said...

None of that looks comfortable at all. Maybe it's just for show... "look at me, look at me, I'm sporty spice barbie!" So silly!

Summer said...

the CRAZY thing??? I actually have a friend who would wear this stuff. Insane.

I'm more the "look like a lesbian" type when I work out. Not such a good look though, I must say! ;-)

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

Ha ha too funny! I think the same thing everything time I walk past that store in the mall!

Thanks for the help today on my blog! Much appreciated!

Cee said...

How did you find pictures of me right before doing the Shred everynight? Doesn't everyone wear outfits like that when working out?

Actually...I wear cheerleading shorts cira 2003 and sorority shirts cira 2005.

Lynn said...

I am SO with you on this one, Girl.

Bathwater said...

So are you saying they should be calling it the BeBe SLUT line of clothes because I know the high school kids would probably still buy it but some girls start using there brains after high school and might be insulted. ;)

RedDreads said...

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA! I love it!

ScoMan said...

I'm pretty sure the designers at Bebe Sport are men.

I didn't even know what Bebe sport was until a few minutes ago (when I started reading this post), but I think I've done enough research (read this post) to reach that conclusion.

Lindsey said...

This was such a funny post! Loved it! What is Bebe thinking?!

Classy in Philadelphia said...

Hahahahaha, this is SO TRUE! I would never wear any of that to work out.

PS- You should join in on my Wednesday feature Where In The World Wednesdays!

PPS- I love the background of your blog!

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

I just found your blog and am thrilled I did. Hilarious post, so I will definitely be back!!

AuntBT said...

You mean wearing lingerie to the gym isn't acceptable? Damn, no wonder I get bad looks . . .

I am Trish Marie said...

Shit. Now I know what I have been doing wrong in my workouts. I forgot the heels.

Annie said...

hahahaha!!
all of those items are cute but there is NO WAY i would wear them out of my home if i owned them!
my fiance wouldn't let me either ;) ha!

Oliviology said...

Even the twats on Real Housewives of (insert city here) wouldn't be caught dead in those get ups! Lovely post!

emily said...

hahaha i mean really...it's comical! what target audience are they going for with those ads and "sport" at the same time... great post!
