Fashion Inspired by Confessions of a Shopaholic

The final inspiring movie on my list of 10 More Movies for Fashion Inspiration is the 2009 film Confessions of a Shopaholic. The movie follows the life a Rebecca Bloomwood (played by Isla Fisher), a journalist with a penchant for shopping. Unfortunately, her love for fashion lands her deep in debt and she somehow finds herself working at a magazine giving out financial advice.

Shopaholic Style

The wardrobe in this film– styled by Patricia Field of Sex and the City fame– has a fashion-forward, over-the-top flair. Rebecca is not afraid to take a fashion risk and her outfits are all about layering lots of bright colors and bold fabrics all at once. Most of her outfits are her own super-fashionable versions of business casual. She also wears tons of fabulous shoes, bags and accessories throughout the movie.

If you’re a fashionista who wants to emulate Rebecca Bloomwood’s bold sense of style, check out these 3 outfits inspired by Confessions of a Shopaholic:

Outfit #1: Savvy and Stylish

Shopaholic Outfit 1

Product Information: Ring- ASOS, Blouse-, Clutch- Spiegal, Shoes- DSW, Skirt- Dorothy Perkins, Belt- Charlotte Russe

This outfit showcases a great way to wear bright colors: against a basic black pencil skirt. A ruffled pink blouse makes a bold statement, especially when paired with some lighter pink heels. Accessorize with a dark purple clutch and matching purple cocktail ring. Instead of adding a typical black belt, define your middle with a neutral-colored belt instead.

Outfit #2: Summer Inspired

Confessions of a Shopaholic Outfit

Product Information: Top- ModCloth, Skirt- J. Crew, Necklace- Oasis, Flats- Forever 21, Belt- Nordstrom

This outfit is perfect for warmer weather; it’s colorful, fun, and sophisticated, yet still casual enough for daytime. To start, I paired a purple skirt with a lightweight pale yellow top for contrast. Next, I added a skinny purple belt to pull the two pieces together. Finally, I chose a fun coral necklace and matching flats to complete this breezy, vibrant outfit.

Outfit #3: Rainbow Bright

Rebecca Bloomwood Outfit

Product Information: Cardigan- Piperlime, Dress- Forever 21, Clutch- ASOS, Belt- Bloomingdale’s, Pumps- Wet Seal

Adding some bright colors to a bold, monochromatic dress is a great way to channel Rebecca Bloomwood’s style. Rebecca adds belts to almost every outfit, so buckle a wide turquoise belt over this printed dress. Yellow accessories– like the clutch and pumps– complement the turquoise. Finish the outfit with a lightweight long cardigan for balance and warmth.
