Meeting Victoria Beckham at Holt Renfrew

It was 1996, and the Spice Girls were taking the world by storm with their hit single "Wanabee"... 

To say I was obsessed with the Spice Girls is an understatement. I shared a room with my sister, but the walls on my side were covered with their posters and magazine clippings, my dresser was covered with their limited edition Chupa-Chups "Fantasy Ball" tins, and collectible stickers! I had shirts, wallets, purses, towels with them plastered all over it. Oh, who can forget the collectible photo and sticker albums, and of course the dolls! 

They were a huge fashion inspiration for me growing up, I loved how wild MelB, aka Scary Spice dressed, how Posh was always so put together and feminine, and well MelC was just awesome for being Sporty, hahaha. Baby and Ginger were cool too. They pretty much influenced me into buying animal print, track suits, and cute dresses appropriate for my age! Oh yeah, and platforms!

Oh I have some great memories of the Spice Girls; like crying for days because my mom wouldn't buy me a ticket to their first concert in Vancouver! Hahaha, seriously! Oh, and FINALLY being able to see them LIVE for the first time, like 10  years later for their REUNION TOUR! Yup, you guessed it, I cried as one of my childhood dreams came true December 2nd, 2007.

So now that you have a rough idea of how big of a Spice Girls fan I was/am, I can commence to tell you about what happend on Friday (June 15)...
 I met up with my friends Karen from Trendy Feeling, and Felix from Yuki and Bee at Holt Renfrew because we had heard that Victoria Beckham would be there promoting her 2012 Fall/Winter Collection AND that there would be a photo op. Cool,right? We thought so...

It was to start at 12:30 promptly, BUT roughly three hours passed before Posh showed up. Good thing, we didn't wait around, we gave up around the 45 minute mark, and went for coffee. We wandered around Holts; smelling perfumes, trying on creams, and shoes, sunglasses and bags. Finally, we were getting restless, and decided to stand by/wander around an entrance where there was a lonesome photographer and some body guards...

A few minutes later, there she was, looking Posh, like always. Wearing a dress from her collection, knee high boots, with her hair pulled to the side in a braid. I was in awe...she was in my bubble.
