Quite a Worthwhile Read

I purchased this book, "That Extra Half an Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything in Between" written by Victoria Beckham, on my quest to read lots of fashion books this summer. I wasn't quite sure what it was going to be all about, but the few reviews I read were quite positive, so I figured I would give it a shot.

First of all, I absolutely LOVE Victoria Beckham, she is the epitome of posh fashion and glamour, and is definitely at the top of my list of personal fashion icons. She has created quite a name for herself- starting with the international girl band the Spice Girls, then becoming the wife of superstar David Beckham and mom to her lovely boys, and now as a fashion icon to many, even dabbling in creating her own lines of dresses, jeans, fragrance, and sunglasses.

Victoria has accomplished so much already it would be hard to not find value in her advice and tips, especially on fashion! She ALWAYS dresses herself, and has never hired a stylist (apart from things like magazine cover shoots where they have them on set)- she always pulls her own clothes, and styles every outfit herself. Although this may seem like an obvious 'no brainer' for people, you would be surprised... Almost all celebrities have stylists who dress them for every premiere, party, event, and even everyday life- well Victoria does this all on her own, and I believe she pulls it together MUCH better than any stylist ever could.

Victoria uses this book to share all that she has learned over her diverse career. She gives the reader great advice about what is appropriate to wear/how to dress for specific special occasions, work, nights out on the town, dates, etc. And even better, she tells you exactly where to buy these staples- not only at the expensive shops, but also at cheaper stores (like H&M) where you can get similar looks for less.

Victoria gives amazing fashion, style, and beauty tips to make you look fabulous every time you leave the house. The amazing pictures in this book were just as wonderful as the tips and advice- every picture included is absolutely stunning. Flipping through the pictures alone transports you into a fabulously glamorous world of fashion, and inspires you to dress beautifully and appropriately, while always making time to take care of yourself.

Well, clearly I loved every page of this book because I finished it in one and a half days (it is almost 400 pages, but there were many pictures). I would definitely recommend this read to glamour girls who wants some up-front and honest advice from a beautiful, experienced, down to earth superstar who really knows what she is talking about. Two thumbs up to Victoria, she is FABULOUS!

You can purchase this book at any major bookstore or on Amazon (very cheap).

Stay Fabulous xoxo
