Confessions Of A Shopaholic: Cute Movie, Cuter Clothes
February 15, 2009
We attended a sneak preview of Confessions of a Shopaholic yesterday and well, we’ve got to tell you, it’s adorable. Patricia Field doesn’t disappoint, bringing an incredibly bright and cheerful palette to the movie's wardrobe. We were salivating over the pictures before, but now we’ve had an eyeful of the wardrobe onscreen and we're planning to add punchy brights to our wardrobes come spring.
Rebecca wears this particular outfit to an interview in the movie. We cannot 1) safely say this is a good interview outfit and 2) advise unthawing a credit card to drop on the labels on the outfit (Vince cardigan, vintage cape and belt, Balenciaga skirt, Marc Jacobs bag). However, adding color into a work wardrobe isn’t that hard. Here’s our take on how to get the look without having to outrun a debt collector.
This Vera Wang Cobalt Blue Satin Belted Dress ($215.20) is a great addition to your closet and can be layered with knits throughout the year. We recommend pairing the dress with a slightly less bright plaid coat, like this Hilary Radley Stripe Wool Blend Coat ($95.20) but then kicking it up with this orange Solid Oblong Scarf ($9.50).
these Kenneth Jay Lane Turquoise Cabochon Chandelier Earrings ($54) will brighten up any basic, while this fabulous Tory Burch Jill Bag ($450) is both functional and stylish.
