If you haven’t thought about the Spice Girls in awhile, take a quick break and do. Until I started writing this post (and searching for an image to go along with it), I hadn’t given much recent thought to them, and it was like I’d totally forgotten how major they felt to my younger self. Everyone I knew loved them with a passion that included memorizing all song lyrics and singing, loudly, in carpool situations. Do you remember them showing up at the opening ceremony for the London Olympic games? I think I cried.
Recent news has me thinking that Mel B., aka Scary Spice, might be the most devoted of the former Spices: she kept all of her old outfits!
“I’ve still got all the old costumes in storage. I’ve kept everything,” she said, per the Daily Mail. “My eldest daughter gets them all out and laughs her head off. On a Friday night when my friends come ’round, we do dress-up.”
