Sorry, but the thought of Me vs. Victoria Beckham has brought an evil smile to my face.
It shouldn’t be there. I should be terrified of the thought. After all, how can I compare to Posh Spice?! I like spicy food and I love posh things (even if I can’t afford them) but that would be about as close a contest as it would get…right?
Actually, this is all about a dress.
The Dress – My Version: Yes, it really is a dress. I know it looks like a tube of fabric with some holes in it. But it’s a dress. Back when I did my 90 day shopping ban followed by the lust-have list and haul, this was one of the items from the haul.
The Dress – Victoria Beckham: Being a lover of classic items and lines, I actually do like many of the dresses by Posh. But you know that I tend to be tight with my money so it’s not likely that I will ever buy one unless I can find it greatly reduced in price. After I bought my dress, I saw this dress by Victoria Beckham, and it made me think of my dress and the similarities.
Hang in there, stick with me, there really are similarities…you just have to look beyond the funny looking tube with the holes in it that I bought!
My Dress – Styled: Once my dress gets sorted out with the collar folded down and the styling completed, you should start to see the similarities. Besides just the colour, my dress can be worn as a cowl neck (the way I prefer to wear it) or the cowl can be slid down over the shoulders and it can be worn with open shoulders. It can even be worn pulled out to the shoulders similar to the Beckham dress. And because of the cut it is a bodycon dress that looks equally well with my brown suede boots or my snake-skin wedge heels.
Styling My Dress: The chain belt came with the dress so I decided to use that as my jumping off point in styling this look. It meant gold accessories and things chain related or inspired. Besides the snake-skin Jessica Simpson wedges, I used a vintage alligator skin handbag, a vintage scarf with a chain print (in the style of vintage Hermes), and the gold statement necklace also from my lust have list.
This look can be changed up by how the neckline is worn but also by changing the accessories. In cooler climates it can be worn with a blazer for work and boots as I mentioned above. It could also be worn with gladiator sandals or little beaded sandals while on holiday. I think I would also like to give it a spin with either my leather jacket or maybe even make it casual with my denim jacket. Once again lots of options…just the way I like it!
So in the contest of Me vs. Victoria Beckham, I think I get the win on this one!
