Love her minimalistic style. 

Love her minimalistic style. 

You know people are always saying " Oh, she has so much style, she's so stylish, you're either born with it or not! " Rubbish!!!! Witness the transformation below and see it is possible. Now you might argue what exactly is style, class or chicness, but believe me, it's got nothing to do with the amount of money you have or not, only the effort you put into your wardrobe identity and your choices! Maybe you might be better informed and perhaps you're around other kinds of people that might influence you, but the fact of the matter is that style can evolve, or not !

From this, beginning with the awesome Spice Girls, an explosion of riotous colors and patterns,  to a meringue covered wedding...

Celebrations continue in bad taste, and no, it's not the that period in time!

This was an especially over the top kind of time, no pun intended. 

 The matching bag, shoes and wrap, the hair, the french manicure, too tacky, need I say more. But you still see this kind of look at award shows...                                                                                                        Photo by: Associated Press

She started out a singer in one the most famous girls bands, The Spice Girls, became a soccer wife and mother, and in time, a great fashion designer. That's Victoria Beckham's progressive path, and on the way, she ditched all the cliched bits and bobs that women think makes them more attractive, and turned into the most elegant swan. 

Her collections, both clothes and accessories, are classics with a twist, her Victoria, Victoria Beckham is fresh, light and lovely, whilst her Victoria line is slightly more grown up and perfect for a working mom as it's comfortable.

She isn't particularly beautiful, or very tall, or charismatic, all the qualities one attributes to a style icon, but she has her own style, and exudes a certain confidence, that to me, embodies her look. 

No bells or whistles for this woman, just a great haircut, well cut garments and her permanently serious expression!

So here's to the ever evolving fashion in our lives, sometimes for the better, other times not so much, and to my new fashion can-do-wrong-girl, Victoria aka Posh Spice!

To my husband who doubted my new found admiration, am I not right?
