Confessions of a Shopaholic


Because Manga Dork is so good to her friends they want to spend lots of time with her. So we ended up with 5 girls and 2 adults on our shopping adventure yesterday. We ate chinese (big shocker!) and then headed to the mall for a little retail therapy...

I owed Manga Dork an outfit for a weight loss challenge I had given her last month. She found a cute one at American Eagle...and these wedges match perfectly.

We enjoyed the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic! It combines the first two books. Becky Bloomwood is as likable and quirky in the movie as she was in the book. Luke was adorable too. But while Suze was perfectly cast I felt they totally missed with Tarkie. In the book he is kinda gangly and odd and in the movie he was slightly cute and slightly odd. I also did not envision Joan Cusack and John Goodman as her parents. Enjoyed their performances...just not a fit for the parents from the books. I loved all the colors and fashion...Becky's wardrobe is fantastic...I want the anchor necklace! The teens and tweens we had with us loved it too. A great movie to see with your daughter or best friend. I highly recommend leaving the hubby or boyfriend at home.

What shopping trip would be complete without a great "find." Well...the most noteable "find" was a not so great one...

I present...high heeled hooker shoes...with grandma's touch! Ahhh! And to think I found these at my beloved TJMaxx! Also as if it wasn't bad enough some crazy person thought...

"these are so great...LET'S MAKE THEM IN RED TOO!" BTW...notice the nice gingham lining!

Happy Tuesday! OC HOUSEWIVES SEASON FINALE TONITE...AND American Idol's first round of 12!

Ohh I want to see that movie so bad but I have to read the book first.

Ok those shooes would Rock on a young hip silly old granny. Ok maybe not. LOL

Congrats to Manga for winning the challenge. Woo Hoo girl. Love the shoes.

I want those shoes. I love gingham. Hee hee..

Glad it was a good movie. I might have to cave for it. Take care.

Sounds like an awesome girls' day out!! Those shoes are....interesting! TJMaxx definately has an eclectic mix of great stuff and crazy stuff. (Makes sense that Jan would want those shoes!!)

Mechelle said...

You go MD! Winning the challenge. That is wonderful. I like American Eagle also.

Love the Hooker shoes. I would never wear them of course, but how funny. m

Looking forward to your review of OCH.

Mechelle said...

Next time I am in the valley I will have to check out TJMaxx. I have never been inside one. Can you believe it? M

Mechelle said...

I don't watch tv and I have never been inside a TJMaxx. Can we still be friends? m

Mechelle said...

Oh yes and I don't like to shop. I am hopeless. m

even though I love to have the clothes once the shopping is over. m

oh I like your sense of humor about the shoes. I sjpo at tjmaxx now and then and I notice it is always these outrageous styles that are like some imported fancy pants designer and I bet those shoes were like regularly 600 dollars, but you could buy them redlined for 159!

just a guess?

Just saw the movie with my mom and daughter and we LOVED it! Loved her black and white coat - I still want that!!

Those granny shoes are hilarious - Seriously!!!!

whoopsadasie said...

Want to see the movie...got to figure out who to go with first!!

You mean you don't like the "hooker/granny" shoes!? Why not!! LOL!!

Love me some TJMax!!

This movie is very high up on the list of movies that I want to see so badly...however, my friends don't share my enthusiasm! It's okay though...i'll go alone! ANd by the way, shoe shopping is my weakness...stop talking about it...or i'll be forced to buy buy buy!!
