There's a lot of excitement about the upcoming movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic," including right here in Chicago.
Local boutique le Dress ((1741 W. Division) found a unique way to celebrate the movie's opening. They put a gift card inside a block of ice, ...
... and the shopaholics chipped away at the ice using a high-heeled shoe.
These gals are serious about getting some freebies!
Kelli Hartsock was the ultimate shopaholic, picking up the gift certificate and a head-to-toe consultation with the co-owners of le Dress.
The rest consoled themselves by doing what shopaholics do best.
Guests were also treated to cupcakes, VIP discount shopping cards and "Confessions" gift bags.
The movie is about a college grad who lands a job as a financial journalist in NYC to support her shopping addiction.
Of course she falls in love -- then out of love -- and then probably back in love with a wealthy entrepreneur.
