Victoria: Women of the Decade

Ok, so if you couldn’t guess from the title who I will be writing about, I’ll give you some hints: She is a mum of four, married to one of the best footballers in the world, a fashion icon & one fifth of the Spice Girls! If you still can’t guess who I’m talking about, I am deeply shocked!

Just in case there are any of you out there who can’t figure it out, I’m writing about the one & only Victoria Beckham! Seeing as yesterday was Harper Seven’s birthday, I thought that this would be one of the best times to write about Victoria’s brand.

When you look at that list, I think it’s fair to say that VB has done well since the start of her fashion career don’t you? Why don’t we now take a look at some of the items available to purchase online:

I have chosen these two items specifically in order to give you a taste of the variation among the different collections.
A personal favourite of Victoria’s from the ‘ready to wear: icon’ collection, the fitted polo dress (dress one of two) pulls off a professional & sexy look. I say this because overall the dress has class & sophistication about it while the red colour of it is eye-catching, interesting & compliments a range of skin tones! The dress hugs the figure of whomever wears it, giving that sexy edge to it! It is recommended on Victoria’s site that you purchase the dress a size larger than what you actually are due the fit of the dress. In terms of the price, the dress costs £1650.00. If you would like to go to the dress’ page please click here.
The zip front collage dress (dress two) is has quirkier look & the intricate detail makes the dress intriguing, interesting & very appealing! This dress is another that suggests professionalism however it has an outgoing touch. The shades of black used compliment the navy & those who wear it. The dress’ geometric patterns draw attention from all over & give a nice depth. Unlike the first dress, you do not need to buy this item in the next size up. The cost of this dress is £785.00 & if you would like to go to the dress’ page, please click here.
