Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) moves to Manhattan to nurture her shopping addiction and gets involved in the New York City magazine world. She has spent almost $1000 in a month, when she discovers a fashionable green scarf, she doesn’t have enough money to buy it and borrows money from a man on the street. When she interviews with Luke Brandon, the editor of the magazine Successful Saving, she finds that he is the man from whom she had borrowed money.

Frustrated by her lack of success, she writes drunken letters to Alette magazine and Successful Saving, but she posts each one to the wrong magazine. Nevertheless, Luke Brandon hires her. Then, rather than completing a work assignment, she goes to a clothes sale. When examining an expensive cashmere pullover she realizes that it is 5% cashmere and 95% acrylic. She writes her column, calling herself “the Girl with the Green Scarf”.

Impressed, her boss, Luke, invites her to a conference in Miami and an important ball. While shopping for the ball, Luke asks what she thinks of him. Rebecca says he is a workaholic and not a good investment. At a restaurant, another woman, Alicia, asks Luke to the ball.

Rebecca and Luke come together, with Luke returning her the green scarf â€“ he was the person behind both bidders. During the credits, Rebecca ends up working for Luke’s new magazine, writing articles such as “Confessions of a Shopaholic”.
