I imagine that some unacknowledged rivalry exists between all the celebrity moms. There are competitions like, “who can wear the skankiest cougar heels to Whole Foods?” and “Who can look sexiest at the pumpkin patch?” And if any version of these competitions really does exist, then Victoria Beckham definitely won this weekend’s showdown, titled, “Who can look trampiest at the Build-A-Bear Workshop?”
The fashionista has once again defied gravity, this time on a shopping trip with her sons. The metallic platforms seemed innocent enough, but on closer inspection, Victoria made making her way through the shopping mall in a pair of dangerously thread-thin stilettos.
Unsurprisingly though, the ultra-skinny Spice Girl, who claims to be unable to concentrate in flat shoes, kept her balance. Perhaps it was the oversized handbag – and holding Cruz’s hand – that helped keep her steady.
And whereas most mums would be content to enter a toy store in a pair of jeans and trainers, the 34-year-old opted for a thigh-skimming bright orange shift dress and sunglasses for the Build-A-Bear workshop with sons Brooklyn, 9, Romeo, 6, Cruz, 3.
Clearly unable to walk up any stairs, the fashion designer wisely chose to use the lift instead but appeared to have some trouble fitting in with her large entourage and shopping bags.

I’m genuinely surprised she didn’t topple over and smush Cruz in those shoes. Not that having 60 pounds of Spice Girl fall on you would probably hurt a kid much, even from the magnificent height those shoes provide.
I checked on Build-A-Bear’s website to see if they have any Spice Girls bears, and sadly they do not. The closest thing they have is a Hannah Montana bear – which is almost as awesome. In fact I started writing this article thinking I’d somehow mildly tease Posh for being dressed so… well however you want to put it – yet going to Build-A-Bear with her kids. But I got so distracted by the awesomeness of the Pumpkin Fun Kitty that I don’t even care in anymore.
Clearly Posh was on her way to do something else (strip club maybe?) and was lured in by the intriguing idea of stuffing her own Trekkin Turtle and all other plans for the day came to a screeching halt. Or the Pawsome Panda. I don’t care what kind of whorish outfit you’re wearing, if you’re smart and you’ve got cash, you drop everything for a panda.
