Entertainment: Confessions of a Shopaholic

Firstly, I feel completely depressed that I haven't been able to blog for the past few days. 4th of July has humongously occupied my whole schedule. So now that it has finally finished and passed, I'm back to completing my daily blogs.
To pay all of you back, I created a new look for the site. What do you think?

Fashion's the word... that most likely influenced Sophie Kinsella while writing the hit novel, Confessions of a Shopaholic. I can honestly express that I do not get enjoyment from reading, but I had to learn more about this book. So I didn't read it, I just cheated by using and other summary sites. After reading all these run-throughs, I have become an addict and am out to buy the fashion forward novel. This is a complete first, for the only things I thoroughly read are blogs and magazines. I was just mesmerized by the wit, comedy aspect, and fashion talk. I don't really want to give anything away or create another summary, but I’ll just suggest you take a look at it and become captivated by its greatness.
Well, this particular post was labeled "Entertainment". That means Confessions of a Shopaholic has something to do with that. This best selling novel is actually coming to the movies, following the foot steps of fellow fashion themed book, The Devil Wears Prada. I believe it will become a huge success, staring Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy, John Goodman, and Joan Cusack. Sadly, there are a few who entirely provoke this movie, but I believe the casting and everything else was done flawlessly. This movie is said to be released February 13, 08.
EXTRA FACT! Patricia Field, the stylist of The Devil Wears Prada, is also styling Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Obsession: Cheap Monday

Fashion's the word... that would exactly be used to portray Cheap Monday. I undeniably admire this clothing line. I also idolize their style and punk like aspect. Being highly known for mostly jeans, they have a lot to live up to with their clothing. I genuinely believe they exceed any expectation. In addition, Cheap Monday's past entirely intrigues me. They started as just a weekend store that specialized on designer denim, in which they also sold secondhand clothing. It is really unbelievable what they have grown into since 2000, when that weekend store was first opened. For the want of cheaper yet still fashionable jeans, this whole phenomenon started. Everything changed and expanded when the glove fitting denim first hit the market in 2004. Since then, they have become unstoppable, putting spectacular jeans and extremely fashionable apparel on the market. Even without any traditional marketing, Cheap Monday has become a widely known brand throughout the world and can be found being sold in 1000 stores.
Want to Buy? Urban Outfitters is a huge carrier of Cheap Monday. Although, H&M retails some of their collection too.
