BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Stars. Becky Bloomwood has a fabulous flat in London’s trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season’s must-haves. The only trouble is, she can’t actually afford it—not any of it. Her job writing at Successful Saving magazine not only bores her to tears, it doesn’t pay much at all. And lately Becky’s been chased by dismal letters from the bank—letters with large red sums she can’t bear to read. She tries cutting back. But none of her efforts succeeds. Her only consolation is to buy herself something . . . just a little something. Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life—and the lives of those around her—forever. Praise for Sophie Kinsella and Confessions of a Shopaholic “A hilarious tale . . . hijinks worthy of classic I Love Lucy episodes . . . too good to pass up.”—USA Today “Kinsella’s Bloomwood is plucky and funny. . . . You won’t have to shop around to find a more winning protagonist.”—People “If a crème brûlée could be transmogrified into a book, it would be Confessions of a Shopaholic.”—The Star-Ledger “A have-your-cake-and-eat-it romp, done with brio and not a syllable of moralizing. . . . Kinsella has a light touch and puckish humor.”—Kirkus Reviews

Even A Blind Chick Sometimes Finds A Bargain Analysis Of Chick Lit In Relation To Post Feminism And The Market

Essay from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Free University of Berlin (Englische Philologie), language: English, abstract: The twenty-first century heroine fights in a Prada dress, in the jungle of big cities, not for world peace but for bargain buys. Today’s heroines also have to be versatile to meet the requirements of post-feminism, popular culture and neo-liberalism: they work, they care for friends, they have to fight for Mr.Right (so they don’t end up as a spinster eaten by cats), they do Brazilian Waxing and most importantly, they shop. When Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones stated that she had decided to “go shopping and stop obsessing” (Fielding 80) it seemed as if a wall was pulled down and women in "Chick Lit" went shopping as if there was no tomorrow. Thanks to credit cards, there is indeed no limit. On the one hand, those women are mostly educated and independent with a solid income, but on the other hand they get into debt for the newest Hermes scarf to achieve an ideal which is propagated in popular culture. Here the question emerges: What significance does the fashion and beauty industry have for women in the 21st century? This essay will answer that question, proving that while the fashion and beauty industry as well as post-feminism propagates the economic independence of women and, in connection, massive consumerism as a symbol for the liberation of women, shopping instead reflects the subliminal oppression of women by the market. The background and theoretical framework for this thesis is provided by Angela McRobbie, one of the leading feminist theorists of the 21st century, who states that the fashion and beauty industry “appears to displace traditional modes of patriarchal authority” (McRobbie 61). My object of analysis is Sophie Kinsella’s "Chick Lit" novel "Confessions of a Shopaholic", as to the heroines in "Chick Lit" shopping is a central and essential part of their lives and is presented as a way to create one’s identity, according to the ideals of popular culture under the guidance of the fashion and beauty industry. "Chick Lit" heroines are often presented as fashionistas who define themselves by the clothes and brands they wear always desperately trying to prove their individuality and to confirm their identity. Free and excessive shopping is put on a level with liberation and emancipation, as "Chick Lit" fashionistas are economically independent working women. This is where the aspect of post-feminism comes into account, as it goes hand in hand with neo-liberal ideas like freedom through economic independence, individuality and competition.

The Globetrotting Shopaholic

The thrust of the literature on consumer space and society focuses on product labeling, marketing techniques and approaches to branding, as well as how mass consumer culture has reshaped individuals' interaction with needs and desires. Globetrotting Shopaholics departs from this current discourse by examining both consumption venues and the cultural, political and social reasons why we consume. It elucidates international trends in consumption politics, and how they impact the creation of consumer spaces, which, in this book, takes the form of numerous global loci including Canada's West Edmonton Mall, Japanese theme parks, shopping venues in the Philippines, and expat boutiques in Budapest. Using a wide range of epistemological frameworks including cultural ethnography, historical analysis, literary theory, sociological dissection, anthropological examination, and philosophical ruminations, this collection conveys how material objects and lifestyles are accumulated and represented internationally, and how consumer goods and spaces define who we are as human beings.

For Rebecca Bloomwood, life is peachy. She has a job on morning TV, her bank manager is actually being nice to her, and when it comes to spending money, her new motto is Buy Only What You Need - and she's really (sort of) sticking to it. The icing on the brioche is that she's been offered a chance to work in New York. New York! The Museum of Modern Art! The Guggenheim! The Metropolitan Opera House! And Becky does mean to go to them all. Honestly. It's just that it seems silly not to check out a few other famous places first. Like Saks. And Bloomingdales. And Barneys. And one of those fantastic sample sales where you can get a Prada dress for $10. Or was it $100? Is Becky too dazzled to care? .
