Over $100k Shopping in One Day? No Prob for Posh

01/19/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

So maybe Posh really is trying to fit into L.A: She spent well over $100,000 in some of the city’s trendiest boutiques on Tuesday. At Petit Tresor — a favorite of Katie and Britney Spears — she bought soccer-themed furnishings for her three boys’ rooms as well as a bunch of clothing for herself, including: 48 camisoles, 12 tank-tops and 12 t-shirts — plus three Mia Bossi diaper bags including this Audrey bag that Madonna also owns. On to Kitson — a fave of Paris Hilton — Posh picked up the pink logo sweatsuit (soooo L.A.!), and his-and-hers Public Library tees simulating her hubby’s famous tattoos. After all that, we can only imagine that she worked up quite an appetite for her dinner with Katie Holmes at the Ivy. Looks like Mrs. Beckham will be a Hollywood mom before we know it!

Uncle Sam will be laughing all the way to the bank.

I hope that we are not going to be inundated with pictures & pointless stories on Victoria Beckham now that she and her husband will be gracing us with thier presence. Are they even celebrities in this country in the first place? I am tired of her already. She looks ridiculous most of the time & who cares about her spending $100,000 on t-shirts??

Regardless of whether $100k is chump change to this woman, it’s still ridiculous and obnoxious. 48 camisoles?? huh? Do the Beckhams give to charity? Do the Cruises give to anything besides the CHURCH? How about just once in a while? I thought I might be but I’m actually not jealous at all. Katie and Posh look empty. Even shopping gets boring after a while.

it’s her money, her business, and her perrogative to spend money however she chooses to. enough already w/the posts that say she should give money to charity!! no one knows whether she does or not, so drop all the jealousy fueled comments. what seems excessive to us is normal, every day life for her. no one is in a place to judge unless they’ve been IN that place. correct?!?

Let me know when she starts to do something productive with her husband’s money… LIKE CHARITY!

This spoiled brat routine falls on deaf ears considering just how much “shopping” we watch these neurotic and image addicted “has beens”. Yet another woman who compensates for her lack of confidence by attempting to purchase every item known in the retail world. BRAVO!


How about something along the lines of “Posh helps poverty stricken families in New Orleans” or …. “Posh finds human kindness in her very own heart after donating second hand clothes to charity.”

Anyone can shop, now remind me why we care to watch “her” do it?


In short, whether she shops here or in the UK, she’s still a 0.01 on the Richter scale on this side of the pond!

I think she looks absolutely horrible! no matter how much she spends on clothes. I could never be jealous of such a tasteless woman! if I were rich I would never spend such an amount of money on clothes! I wold rather travel around the globe. If i was her i would feel quite uncomfortable spending my husband´s money all the time!!! she is useless and can´t earn money by working on herself!!

With that kind of money to spend on silly things, you would think she would have a smile on her face, even occasionally. This woman always looks bitter with that puckered puss of hers

I have to agree that she always looks unhappy and it is silly when celebs wear sunglasses other than when they are outdoors. It comes off as very Diva-like and snobbish. Money can buy her tons of material items, but I guess not the happiness she appears to be lacking.

I find this whole thing absolutely ridiculous! I just don’t understand what the big deal is. Posh is spending ungodly amounts of money. That’s shocking? No. She’s a celebrity! And for those who think she needs to be giving to charity, it’s not her (or any other celebrity’s) responsibility to do that! Though I agree that those who have more should “give,” its ridiculous that people think its necessary for celebrities to be the “givers.” Last time I checked, it was everybody’s responsibilty to help others!!

To Charla Dickenson on her oh-so intelligent comments:

Excuse me, Charla, but maybe you should once in a while read a good book on business and economy before posting THREE extremely unintelligent messages.

1st posting: You say “I believe the rich and famous should be criticized for living so greedily. […] The hoarding of wealth creates great financial disproportion which results in worldwide poverty and the underfunding of many charities and vital organizations.”

– On the one hand, you keep repeating celebrities should not spend that much money, on the other hand, you say hoarding wealth (if we define that as money) leads to poverty. Get it? If they wouldn’t spend that much money on products, many of you would lose their jobs because nobody would be needed to produce, market, sell, deliver etc. those goods.
