We recently flew to Seattle to celebrate a very exciting graduation for my man’s sister. She graduated from Commercial Dive school! How crazy cool is that?! For the big event, I went classic chic with a knee length skirt and sweater. It was a little colder than I thought it would be so ended up wearing this faux leather jacket basically the whole day. I got a gross bug bite on the side of my toe that was really bothered by my Charlotte Olympia kitty shoes I was planning to wear so I wore my sandals all day. Even in the rain! I guess I am a California girl so we can get away with things like that… *wink wink*
When I saw this book (at the Goodwill!) I knew I had to have it. I actually didn’t even open it before I bought it so I was expecting a biography of sorts. I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out to be a style guide! Score!! I’m a huge Victoria Beckham fan. She has that classic effortless style that I love. So her guide, That Extra Half an Inch, was a fun book for me to read! She actually does give a lot of great style tips throughout and it’s really well illustrated. There are a lot of photos of Victoria too, which is fun for fans like me. She has a great cheeky writing style that lends some humor to the text. It was written in 2006 so some of the “Where to Buy” sections are a bit outdated and doesn’t include some of the newer popular designers. Otherwise the style advice is still very relevant. A must read for all fans of Victoria’s style.
