Confessions of a Shopaholic DVD Review

Will Rebecca keep fleeing debt collectors or will she wake up and realize labels dont define her? Check out Kidzworlds review of Confessions of a Shopaholic!

All her life, Rebecca Bloomwood has gazed into shop windows and pined for the high life. Sure, she may come from humble beginnings, but thanks to thirty credit cards, Rebecca can don the designer duds like no other!

Working Girl

While dodging those pesky debt collectors may seem like a full time job, Rebecca’s got to pay the bills so she applies at Alette—the fashion magazine she’s dreamed about writing for since she was fourteen years old. Alas, the position gets filled internally and Rebecca is stuck applying for a writing gig at a dull financial magazine instead—but Successful Saving is run by the same company that runs Alette so if Rebecca can make her mark in finance, sashaying into fashion should be no trouble! If only she could keep her mind on her work instead of her wardrobe!

The Girl with the Green Scarf

Instead of writing her first big assignment for Successful Saving, Rebecca succumbs to her shopping addiction and hits a Sample Sale. She buys a cashmere coat but once she gets home, the label reveals it’s actually 95% acrylic! Instead of feeling bummed about getting ripped off, Rebecca uses the experience as inspiration for her column and writes about financial woes through the voice of a fashionista. She signs her piece “The Girl with the Green Scarf” and when the article becomes a hit, everyone wants to meet the mystery writer with a keen eye for accessories.


Beguiling Boss

Rebecca’s keen eye hasn’t failed to notice her cute boss either and when Luke invites her to a magazine conference in Miami, the trip mixes business with pleasure until Alicia, a long-legged blonde from Alette, asks Luke to the ball before Rebecca gets a chance. If Rebecca wants to land a killer job at Alette and the man of her dreams, she needs to beat her shopping addiction and realize that labels shouldn’t define her.


Special Features

There aren’t many extras for Confessions of a Shopaholic but there’s enough to keep you interested: check out the Stuck With Each Other music video by Shonelle featuring Akon for some dope beats to start your shopping day and don’t miss the Deleted Scenes and Bloopers of a Shopaholic—they’re hilarious!

    Do You Shop at Vintage Stores?

    • Yeah, it's where I find all the coolest stuff.
    • Only when I tag along with my vintage-lovin' friends.
    • I went once, but didn't have the patience to look around.
    • Vintage is used, and I don't do used.

    “Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
