All she ever wanted was a little credit

Rebecca Bloomwood played by Isla Fisher, a 20-something chic girl is addicted to none other than charging up a storm on pricey designer digs. She has expensive taste and doesn’t understand the idea of living within her means.

Based on Sophie Kinsella’s best-selling novel series, the perky New York fashionista needs to start bringing in the bucks to nurture her crazy habit gone haywire. What’s a shopaholic to do?

Try to land a job at a trendy fashion magazine, of course. It seems such dream jobs aren’t quite as easy to come by unlike a new Gucci bag for this shopaholic.

After some resume embellishment, Bloomwood becomes employed at a new financial magazine.

The job involves writing financial advice, not that she’s entirely qualified. Being published by the same company as the top fashion magazine she adores, this may be Bloomwood’s way in to that dream job.

This doesn’t suffice her shopping needs. Bloomwood attempts reducing impulse buys, but it’s harder than she thought. She cuts back by having a low rent thanks to her best friend and roommate, Suze played by Krysten Ritter. Still, these contributions aren’t doing the trick.

The surplus of bills keep on coming. This debt overflow just may ruin her personal and professional life.

A story of self discovery and nearly ruining a credit score, the main character must reevaluate life and turn it all around while still looking fabulous.

Hit the theaters this week and see “Confessions of a Shopaholic.”
