Confessions of a Shopaholic DVD Review
Will Rebecca keep fleeing debt collectors or will she wake up and realize labels don't define her? Check out Kidzworld's 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 GirlWhile 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.
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.
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!
