When we were 12, our lifetime ambition was to persuade our parents to take us to Claire’s Accessories to get our ears pierced. Nothing’s really changed, but that’s besides the point.
The point is, IF ONLY WE HAD A DAD LIKE DAVID BECKHAM AND A MUM LIKE VICTORIA BECKHAM, who took their little stud to get their ear pierced at the infamous jewellery story.
Oh no, we’re not talking about Harper. We’re talking BROOKLYN.
Mama (and papa), I love you etc etc.
This is actually a true and VERY IMPORTANT STORY.
Channelling the thoughts and dreams of every teenage girl, David and Victoria took Brooklyn to Claire’s in Westfield, Shepherd’s Bush, to prove that they’re totes normal people who can do things in totes normal shops.
GOD LOVE ‘EM.
According to reports, David took 15-year-old Brooklyn in the back entrance (that didn’t sound so wrong in our heads) whilst Victoria and Romeo took the plebs entrance AKA the front.
A source told The Daily Mail: “The story went crazy. We had to take Brooklyn out the back to do the piercing.”
Although to be fair, we did always like to praise Claire’s for giving us a princess-like shopping experience. Perhaps that was just the five hours we spent trying on tiaras going to our heads though.
The shop’s manager, Joe Parker, was given the daunting task of doing the piercing itself, and explained to The Sun that he was pretty much sh**ing bricks about the whole thing.
He said: “They picked the most expensive earring – but Victoria told him to go a size down so it wasn’t too blingy.
“Brooklyn was cool but I was so nervous, I was like, ‘I can’t mess this up’.”
We feel pretty smug that we only had to beg our parents to fork out about £4 for Claires’ most expensive bling back in our day, rather than the £45 Posh and Becks have thrown at Brooklyn’s ears.
We’ve probably still got that £4 silver stud somewhere too. Ahh, the good ol’ days.
Despite that source’s claim that the store was “crazy,” shop assistant Britney admitted that although customers noticed the “lovely family,” things were business as usual as far as she was concerned.
She revealed: “Victoria was just checking out the hair extensions at the back of the shop. A few customers noticed who it was, but things stayed pretty calm.
“I think they were just in disbelief, I was just trying to keep it together.”
The day Victoria pops in a pair of Claire’s-branded hair extensions is the day we become Prime Minister.
Reports are yet to confirm whether Brooklyn picked the same eight-pack of unicorns and rainbows that we did after the 30-minute piercing.
