That Extra Half An Inch
'I've always been a girls' girl. And I know from experience that making the very best of yourself is something any woman can do. I was never the six-foot-tall pin-up. I've always been the girl-next-door who got lucky. I've come a long way in the last ten years, but this book isn't my attempt to tell you what or what not to do. It's just to share some of what I've learned....more
the set out of the book was good; broken up into different sections as to not confuse readers and each section had a double page for notes which is a nifty idea if you're reading this book to change your style or are quite clueless when it comes to styling yourself and where to start.
but really, i kinda only read this for Victoria Beckham. i love her...more
The Plot: Victoria Beckham is heralded these days as a fashion icon, mostly because it's the only thing she really contributes to the entertainment world. This book is a candid look at her advice when it comes to all things image - from head to toe - including suggested stores, fashion tips, and plenty of glossy photos of the Posh one to 'inspire' you.

Let's face it -- the book is essentially an ode to Victoria's ego, but it's also surprisingly extensive and filled with lots of advice for those who can't afford Balenciaga...yet.
It's the kind of book that wouldn't be out of place on Carrie Bradshaw's bookshelf. Fun and frothy for your favorite fashionista!
I got this stuck-up vibe from her, and I didn't think she would be a person who would want to help others when it came to fashion or beauty in general.
Surprisingly, Posh spills all in this book, from where to buy to how to wear. Even the little tidbits she learned as a kid from her mother are included throughout the sections of the novel.
Although I do recommend reading it by section, rather than front to back, like I did. I find it's m...more
I absolutely hate everything about Victoria Beckham and avoid everything associated with her at all costs usually.
But for some reason I bought this book,despite the fact I don't even like her so called 'fashion sense'.
I suppose curiosity got the better of me and I wanted to see if it was actually any good.It wasn't.
She promotes her jeans,goes on about her skin care regime but doesn't really tell you anything new.
If you need a guide for the basics of st...more
During her rise to fame with 1990's pop group the Spice Girls, Beckham was dubbed Posh Spice, a nickname first coined by the British pop music magazine, Top of the Pops, in their July, 1996, issue. Since the Spice Girls followed separate careers, she has dabble...more
