Before I get into it, I'd like to first give some mad props to the Alabama Crimson Tide for their come from behind victory over their rival LSU Tigers this past weekend. HUGE win for Nick Saban and the boys, and today I'm showing my school pride in my Alabama Ladies Long Sleeve T I got from this Alabama store. Roll tide!

Today we are looking at the ever so stylish Victoria Beckham, one of America?s favorite trendsetters. Here she is strutting through a Tokyo terminal in a blazer in this season?s IT color, scarf by Stella McCartney, Givenchy pumps and carrying an elite Birkin bag. Yes, even jet-setters can pull off glam in super casual.

Pick up this season’s must have, a tailored gray blazer from J.Crew. You can wear this with just about anything. This comes in Irish wool, notched collar and flap pockets. You will also love the stretch lining this comes in and how snug it will sit at your hips.

I am having a tough time finding this EXACT scarf by our beloved Stella, by in the meantime, I ran across this piece by Trovata. This collection comes with a funky retro look and this chunky cableknit piece is 77? long and is 55% cashmere. Ohhh so soft.

Pick up the jeans at Active Endeavours. I love these ‘Faux Skinny’ jeans by Radcliffe, the high waist allows essentially any figure to work with these. The innovative cufflinks at the ankle are great for pairing with either ballets, or funky pumps. You will like the high rise in the front AND back that will give you a beautiful hourglass shape and unbelievable comfort.

You have to know I can’t help you much with the Birkin bag. To purchase a Birkin Bag you need to contact Hermes directly, and then sit on a waiting list for about 2 years (AFTER you’ve been approved), and while you are waiting you can save up the SEVERAL thousand dabloons that it will cost you to purchase the bag. The one that I saw on auction will run you about $15,000, I guess that’s the price you pay to avoid the wait. Check out eBay if you don’t believe me! But why not grab this piece from Target? This is the Merona Brief Tote Bag in Black and while it isn’t a Birkin, carries off the same look for less than $30 bucks.

We have featured these pumps before, and if I am not mistaken, it was the last time that Posh won our Look of the Day spotlight. These pretty numbers ARE the ones you see her wearing, and you have to love the assymetrical design by Givenchy and the hot look of this season’s open-toe. You can get these in either patent as she is wearing, or in a pretty metallic calf leather upper. The cut out detailing is SO sexy that is only enhanced by the 4? heel.

Pair all of the above with a sleek skinny tee or tank from Old Navy or The Gap and you are good to go girlfriend!
