The last time I saw Victoria Beckham, she was about 500ft away from me, wearing a bandana and miming to Out of your Mind with a very sweaty Dane Bowers at Party in the Park. I haven’t seen her since. Incidentally, I have seen Dane Bowers: in my local Tesco Express because he lives down the road.
But while Dane has (bless him) bid farewell to the limelight, Victoria Beckham is a lesson in reinvention. After nine fashion collections and amassing a legion of “Beckham-bots” from Elle to Oprah, the artist formerly known as Posh Spice has created the most exciting new fashion brand of the millennium.
I barely manage to juggle a job, a blog and a husband, and then there’s Mrs Beckham — showcasing her fashion creations in New York, bringing up four beautiful children, dancing (albeit a little bit uncomfortably) on the top of a taxi at the Olympics and jet-setting about with the world’s most famous man. All in six-inch Laboutins.
Now I would LOVE this post to be an “I just bought this Victoria Beckham dress and it fits my long limbs perfectly” post. But I don’t have a spare £1500 quid. However. Anyone checked out the latest offerings in the “Tall Dresses” section of Next? Definitely a bit of Posh in there. Pretty contrast collars, peplum waists and clean lines that are perfect for sexing up your office wardrobe or rocking at a Christmas party.
Wear with manicured nails and a serious pout.
And if I did have a spare £1500 (Or £1650 to be exact), I’d probably splurge first on this leather and canvas VB shoulder bag. It’s just so peachy.
Or I’d go on a wacking great big holiday instead.
