Like every other 7 year old girl in 1997, I had a huge obsession with the Spice Girls. In particular, Baby Spice. I wanted to be just like her- I begged my mom to let me buy size 5 women’s platform shoes (“I’ll grow into them! They’re not THAT big!”), sucked on the official Spice Girls Chupa Chups lollipops (Baby’s brand of choice for her ever-present lollipop) and made my mom style my hair into little pigtails just the way she wore hers. I LOVED pigtails.
