Astro Spice

Remember that scene in Spice World (and if you just balked at the phrase "Remember that scene in Spice World" then maybe you should find a different blog to read) where they're practicing for their big concert and they're all really tired and kind of burned out and Scary Spice is wearing a gigantic puffy white astronaut coat that goes down to her knees and she looks so badass and I was always really jealous of her? I was shocked to find that girlshop.com is now selling an exorbitantly overpriced coat that greatly resembles the one I loved so in the film (and if you just balked at my calling Spice World a "film," then you really need to find a different blog to read).


This coat is definitely not as cool as the Scary Spice version, mainly because it's literally a quarter of the size, but still, residual Spice World passions are making me want to empty out my college fund and buy it. After all, $440 is a small price to pay to emulate a member of the greatest musical act of our time (I weeded out all the haters up there so now I can say what I truly feel).

My sister loved that movie (and, no, by 'my sister,' I do not mean me.) I vaguely remember the scary fashions but cannot recollect that specific coat. I might have to add it to my ginormous netflix queue just to refresh my memory....

Yes! Own your Spice World passion! Don't be ashamed! That is seriously one of my favorite movies; I could watch it over and over again and never get bored or stop laughing. I so want to come to your party. I'm waiting for my invitation.

The Spice Girls were just a tad before my time, but that coat is fantastic! It makes me want to work for NASA.
