aka Posh Spice

I don't know why it took me so long to write this post, it seems like an absolute no brainer for me. Victoria Beckham has been one of my style icons for as long as I can remember. Being born in 1991, I grew up with the Spice Girls. They were one of my first ever favourite groups; I had all of their CDs, their Barbies and I even saw Spice World in theatres. That movie is still one of my favourites, but anyway, I digress... Everyone in the nineties had to have a favourite Spice Girl, whether or not you were a die hard fan like me, and my favourite was always Posh Spice. With most girls my age choosing either Baby or Sporty Spice to be their personal heroes, Posh was a rather unpopular option. But, after all of these years, I stuck by my choice with pride.

There is just something so undeniable about her style. Whether she's wearing the little Gucci dress, the little Gucci dress or the little Gucci dress, she wears it with such confidence and ease. I love how she can turn a look as casual as a black t-shirt and dark wash jeans into something dramatic by wearing sky-high stilettos. I strongly believe that watching her as I was growing up influenced all of the black clothes in my wardrobe. She's interesting in the sense that she can constantly wear that shade, but she can wear it in a million and one different ways. Victoria Beckham is a celebrity that pays more attention to classic pieces than pieces that are on trend, and that's what I admire most about her. Her style will never fade because of this.

  1. Your so right about posh- she always looks amazing. I think she influenced my love of black too (although it was a choice between scary and ginger for me )
    Thank you for the kind comment x

    1. Oh I love Scary too! She probably influenced my love of leopard prints haha
