I am totally confessed after we've watched the movie “Confessions of a Shopaholic” with friends last Friday. It was awesome and really a remarkable movie to be watched again and again.
If so, Confessions of a Shopaholic should totally be on your to-do list this weekend.
My Movie Confession
Confessions of a Shopaholic is the typical American comedy that tends to do well at the box office, but this time it's also a tribute to fashion brands. Isla Fisher played to panic-attack perfection by Rebecca Bloomwood, a girl obsessed with brand names and designer finds. She is an aspiring fashion writer who’s in over her head — in debt, in love, and in a job she barely interviewed for and doesn’t know how to do (except she has a snappy pink iBook!). But her muses — Prada, Gucci, Louboutin — ensure that even if she gets found out as the imposter, she’s flowing the tide of fashion with style.
"You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles, and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast, well that's what it's like when I see a store." says Rebecca.
The movie, for which plot is merely an accessory, romps through sample sales, (like Gucci boots at 50 percent off!), talking mannequins stressed out the infamous green scarf as the “key piece” in the movie. "This scarf would become part of a definition of your psyche,” one whispers, “it would be an investment!”and a roommate’s wedding, all while watching Rebecca elude the evil bill collector Derek Smeathe.
Woman in fab lane; the film stylist of famous Sex and the City, Patricia Field is also the stylist of the movie. We can expect a ton of quirky looks, from vintage to high fashion from her. Ms. Field describes Rebecca's look in the film as "a little eclectic mix of something cute, something designer. It was an opportunity for me to create a different look for people to see that they haven't really seen before. It's fashion-forward but also a little exaggeration for this extreme character who can't stop shopping."
Pratfalls and amazing stiletto heels are there to move things along at every turn, and the one and only costume designer, Patricia Field (Sex and the City) keeps us on detail overload: bright colors, flirty hemlines, fabulous coats and “IT” handbags as far as our eyes can see. The film was shot in New York City, using stores such as Henri Bendel, Catherine Malandrino, Barney's , YSL and Prada fashion house as the backdrop.
Other characters in the film – dreamy boss Luke Brandon (Hugh Dancy), long-suffering roommate Suze (Krysten Ritter), goddess fashion editor Alette (Kristin Scott Thomas, helping Rebecca pick out an outfit for a television interview), and the bewildered but loving parents (John Goodman and Joan Cusack) contribute to the fray.

Hello Prada lover. I know some of you guys are wondering how I came up with the title of this new post. The fact that Prada is on my must-have accessory list.
I am totally amazed and impressed the occurrence of Prada label in the movie. This happened during Rebecca and her handsome boss, Luke Brandon shopped at the Prada store for the preparation of her boss outfit for the dinner party. Do you speak Prada? shockingly asked Rebecca in an unbelievable emotion to her boss.
Looking at the latest iconic Prada collection from the brand has my mouth watering. Gah. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I love how this goddess look in my outfit too!
