Reese Witherspoon at the Country Mart in Los Angeles

Posted on August 02, 2013


Reese Witherspoon leaves lunch at the Country Mart in Los Angeles in Goldsign ‘Glam’ skinny crop jeans paired with a Louis Vuitton bag, Oliver Peoples sunglasses,  and Christian Louboutin Iriza Leopard pumps.

Louis Vuitton Noisette Monogram W PM Bag

Giving us life, attitude, and Louis Vuitton – all in a parking lot. Your bitchpoise is a beautiful thing. We hope drag queens pay tribute to you for generations to come. You deserve it. You are every bitchy former cheerleader and current entitled PTA mom wrapped up in a tiny little package, with expensive accessories.

Our favorite part of all?


You can actually hear the gears kicking into place. “Smile, Reese! Make them fucking love you! Parking lots are awesome!”

We admit it. We’re a little jealous of the bag.

      Those shoes and that purse- well-played.

      • Alyssa

        I’ll take both, please!

      • Emily

        I’d cut a bitch for that bag

    • Diego!

      Love this look! Miss Reese! You look amazing!

    • AnnaleighBelle

      Tracy Flick as a well-off soccer mom. Pre-divorce.

      • Heather

        Or — post? Cause you know she’d take him to the cleaners.

    • Just Me

      She has the magic bag! The bag that would cause some ordinary Bitter Kittens to camp out in a box for a year just to have it. And she is pairing it with shoes that would make Dita Von Teese proud! While walking in a parking lot. That is some well-played shit, Reese. *Fist-bump AND high five*

    • StellaZafella

      Few things set off a Louis V bag and leopard shoes like a turquoise cashmere sweatshirt.
      I feel like a seagull in Finding Nemo: “Mine!?Mine!?…Mine!?Mine!?!!!!”

    • sugarkane105

      A mere mortal can only aspire to those bitch levels. And that bag.

    • abfidy

      Bonus points for surfacing for pics outside a place called the Country Mart. Nobody plays the America’s Sweetheart game like Reese. Bless!

    • Karen Belgrad

      And thus concludes the summer leg of the Reese-Apology-Tour-2013.

      • Just Me

        Only if she hands over that bag!

        • Karen Belgrad

          I’ll take the shoes… and the shirt which looks like it could cost $34.99 at Limited, but probably cost $734.99 at Neiman’s.

          • Just Me

            It’s a deal.

    • marshmallowjane

      She always holds her bag the same way. My arm would hurt like that. I’d wear mine on my shoulder. Do you think this is the “pose” way to carry a bag, or so other females here hold their bags like that?

      • Jessica | Surely Sonsy

        i carry mine like that, especially larger ones that are too bulky over the shoulder.

        • marshmallowjane

          Maybe my arms are weaker than yours or hers. I learned many years ago when I worked for the fraud division of a bank to carry my purse over my shoulder and close to my body. So I probably just do it my way out of habit. IMO, there’s no right way to carry a purse, as long as you’re aware of what is around you. Her (your) way looks awkward to me, but I’ve noticed other celebs carrying theirs this way as well.

      • marlie

        It’s the appropriate way to carry a bag AND show off the label for the paparazzi. Though I sometimes carry mine like that, too – it allows me to pretend just for a minute that I’m a richbitch.

        • marshmallowjane

          Well, maybe I should give this a try. I’ll consider buying a designer bag first. :-)

          • marlie

            I usually do it when I’m borrowing a designer bag from my sister. Why buy my own when I can just raid her closet?

      • AmeliaEve

        If you are trying to show off your outfit, you don’t want to put your purse on your shoulder because it will tug the fabric and compromise the line of your clothing.

      • Winter_White

        That’s the way my mother and grandmother used to carry them — back when they were called “pocketbooks.” Their pocketbooks always held a perfectly-pressed floral or lacy white handkerchief, which had been misted with a tiny bit of cologne. My grandmother’s sometimes included a pair of white gloves, for church.

        • Cheryl

          I never call my pocketbook a “purse.” To me, a purse is like a clutch or other little bag to hold make-up and tissues. Sometimes I’ll use “bag,” but never purse. Reese’s bag is too big to be a purse.

        • marshmallowjane

          You hit the nail on the head for me. Subconsciously, I’m thinking that old ladies carry purses like that. I’m rethinking this. I love the way you describe the inside of a purse; I actually miss the formality of white gloves and hats. In 1950 and 1960, bags had only short handles on them for the most part, so no one carried a purse over the shoulder. The crook of the arm is awkward for me to pull off.

          But what do I know? I have a purse that can also be a backpack. I have back issues, so I try to distribute the weight evenly by wearing it on my back. My look would get booooooed by everybody here.

          • Winter_White

            Oh, I was obsessed with my mother’s pocketbooks! They even smelled beautiful, of leather and that whisper of cologne…and everything was placed inside just-so. She was a smoker, so it always contained a slim pretty lighter (which never worked very well; matches were hidden in her change purse) and a cigarette case that looked so glamorous to little me that I couldn’t wait to grow up and have my own cigarettes! (Hee. I’m not a smoker, by some miracle.)

            In the present, my bag is cluttered with tons of unlovely stuff. A bulging makeup pouch, in contrast with her single tube of lipstick and mirrored “compact”…and instead of a perfect handkerchief: a whole great mess of Puffs Tissues, some used, thanks to my allergies. So I would never boo your backpack-purse, MarshmallowJane! :)

            • marshmallowjane

              One of the reasons I quit smoking many years ago was that I had tobacco bits all over the inside of my purse. Your mother was organized and neat.

      • Beardslee

        I carry mine like that fairly often, and think of this blog when I do so. Nobody is looking at this middle class, middle aged matron, let alone her workworn bag. But it is a comfortable way to carry it.

    • annabelle archer

      Full on Tracy Flick face. She is so Nashvegas, I love her too.

    • Lori

      I don’t love her, but I do thoroughly enjoying finding her insufferable, which is almost better.

      • marlie


      • formerlyAnon

        Nope. No “almost” about it.

      • Sunraya

        Yes. Insufferable. And smug. She is quite smug.

          • largishbearishAtlish

            and JUST TODAY I was wondering when we were going to see her again on her “Pole Dance of LOVE ME DAMMITness” ™. Thank you oh Sainted T’lo for your wonderful timing (how DO they do that…amazing, we bitter kittens are in AWE).

    • marlie

      THAT BAG. THOSE SHOES. If I had several thousand dollars just lying around, I too could turn my jeans and sweater errand-running outfit into this.

      I’m crazy annoyed by the bitchface. She looks so much better when she cracks a smile.

      • annabelle archer

        The combination is so simple but so effing brilliant. This is casual werq.
        I think she just has RBF, it can’t be helped, but you’re right, when she smiles it is pure “Hey Y’all, want some iced tea?”

    • colleenjanel

      I’m beginning to think that she’s Brentwood Country Mart’s best customer. As often as she’s photographed there, they’d better be giving her a discount and a free ham or sum’tin!!!

      • largishbearishAtlish

        maybe that big ol’ bag is FOR the free ham?

    • Lesley

      now, elle woods whoever told you that pink was your only color? serving up some serious bitch face in that parking lot, love it!

    • Knightley

      While the Jerzees sweatshirt makes me laugh, is it really that cold in Cali? Granted, the material looks thin and she has the sleeves pushed up, but still.

      • filmcricket

        That’s my thought – she’s making me ill just by thinking of how warm she must be.

        Otherwise she does look great, though. Love the shoes. Other folks can have the bag, my heart belongs to Burberry.

        • Just Me

          Don’t get it twisted, I love me a good Burberry too. I can’t wear fancy shoes, (orthopedic shoe is my middle name), so handbags and lovely clothes make up the deficit in my personal fashion world.

      • The Gifted Collector

        Brentwood, where she lives near the Country Mart, gets the morning overcast from the ocean. It burns off as the day gets warmer. Then she can take off the sweater and just wear the tank that’s underneath.

        Los Angeles is made up of many different micro-climates. While she is running around in a sweater, just 10 miles away in the San Fernando Valley, it might be 25 degrees warmer.

      • frumpybiscuits

        It’s been chilly – for here. It actually rained here this week. And it’s been 60s. Left over June gloom.

    • Glam Dixie

      Aren’t Country Mart and Los Angeles oxymorons? That bag is to die for.

    • KikiAvocado

      is it fall in california? jeans , sweatshirt, heavy bag ? Can’t hate tho- she does look like that bitch next door !

    • Vanja

      The shoes and bag are easy to recognise, but how do you know the brand name of the jeans? Is her PR team handing out that info at the exit of the parking lot?
      Love the shoes.

      • largishbearishAtlish

        oh I just love that idea… her carefully placed PR minions quietly handing out flyers (off camera, of course) breaking down the outfit, and when/where the paparazzi can ‘catch’ her again, posing…er…idly wandering around…

        • Cheryl

          I believe I read here – from the mouths of TLo themselves — that sometimes publicists do give out little hints to fashion writers that so-and-so will be photographed wearing Guess jeans and Louboutin sneakers today (please correct me if I’m wrong.)

    • largishbearishAtlish

      Wow, that top looks like a sweatshirt top, and very hot (as in temperature, not style-wise). Bonus points for the clear bra

      outline. The shoes however, are fab. Parking lot, red carpet, one in the same right? Dying to know what “Country Mart” is…that could go soooo many ways… bulk plastic floral? obscenely hot restaurant? Cheap liqour?

      • The Gifted Collector

        Please don’t die. It’s not all that exotic. The Brentwood Country Mart is a courtyard surrounded by upscale but casual food stands, boutiques, post office, services, etc. If you want to know more–brentwoodcountrymart dot com.

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        There was one in the town where I went to college. There were so many old people in that town that Country Mart had bad parking spaces.

        That’s more a comment on the town but still…

    • MilaXX

      I would cut a gal for that bag,

      • mjude

        i will fight you for that bag :)

    • formerlyAnon

      Possibly the best “Everywoman – *exactly* like you, only with more mad money” I’ve seen. Fellas, if I could love, admire and respect you as bloggers any more than I already do, that sentence would have doe it.

      Or, to hit the demographic more exactly, your words: “You are every bitchy former cheerleader and current entitled PTA mom wrapped up in a tiny little package, with expensive accessories. ”

      Fellas, if I could love, admire and respect you as bloggers any more than I already do, that sentence would have doe it.

    • flamingoNW

      Really not a fan of the Louis Vuitton bag, at ALL. Never have liked that style. LURV the shoes a lot.

    • formerlyAnon

      P.s. Thank god, my grudging respect/hate feelings for her seem to have returned! It’s the little things that fuel one’s joie de vivre.

    • Qitkat

      Insouciant nonchalant bitchface cupcake sweetness. She has perfected it. With LV filling and Louboutin frosting.

      • Gaby

        This comment is full of win and I SALUTE you for it.

    • Getoverit

      Love the bag & shoes but the pants don’t do it for me. Its like she is sporting high waters. They are too short to be “jeans” and too long to be “crops.” Am I alone here?

    • Rand Ortega

      “Parking lots are awesome!” is my new mantra.

    • LaSylphide

      Risking an avalanche of vituperation…why would any sane human being wear those shoes to go shopping?

      • Fordzo

        Because in this case, shopping trip = photo call.

      • Rand Ortega

        It’s a “Hollywood Shopping Trip”. Whole ‘nother animal than the real thing.

      • sekushinonyanko

        I’m going to mean by “shopping” she means wandering around pointing at things, motioning to her assistant to carry them and then strolling out. And the person who’s going to be hauling that shit around is out of frame on purpose so she can get these shots.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I love the fit of those jeans on her.

    • MartyBellerMask


    • NYCGlamourpuss

      The sassy skinny jeans paired up with those awesome leopard pumps? WITH those shades and a low-key cute little turquoise sweater? Yes PLEASE! And I’m not even crazy about the bag! But the rest is nothing but net.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      That is serious Death Smile she’s giving.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Now *there’s* an LV I’d carry.

    • majorbedhead

      Killer shoes. Killer bag.

      • Shawn EH

        Killer jeans. She looks tall!

    • lynnlee

      Why does everyone love that ugly bag so much?

      • formerlyAnon

        Not everyone. I often feel this way when designer bags are under discussion.

      • sekushinonyanko

        I love that bag with those shoes specifically. For me it’s a situational feeling, and since the outfit is so chic mom the contrast with all the leopard and leather is kind of awesome.

    • frumpybiscuits

      I guess I’m alone but I find this a boring a$$ outfit. Boring jewelry, boring combos, completely uninventive. I LOVE that purse but the ensemble as a whole is zzzzz. But I think that’s what she’s going for right now. And her jeans are too short!!

    • bertkeeter

      They have the best fried chicken on the Westsde! Oh …. n Reese looks awesome!

    • TerryMH

      Mean girl grows up into entitled PTA bitch mom, the kind that signs up for every school committee then does nothing but show up at the end-of-the-year party. I have no idea if that’s what she’s like but she’s certainly dressing the part.

    • Judih1

      I think the top looks to J.Crew/Preppy for the rest of the things she is wearing. Change the top and this is a parking lot WERQ

    • Fannie Wolston

      Another empty oversized tote bag going for a walk with it’s owner, A place to hold your I phone and what the fuck else? She looks like an old bag lady with her BRF & pale blue granny sweater.

    • LuluinLaLa

      Is that an LV necklace, too? It looks so perfect hanging over her collar like that. Was this an arranged PR set-up?

    • judybrowni

      I’m sorry, but Louis Vuitton’s always look like plastic to me.


      Although I loooove the shoes, for grocery shopping, really?

      • sleah_in_norcal

        i’m with you on the lv bags. i like the celeb adds, though, esp the one with keith richards and the lv guitar case.

    • sleah_in_norcal

      the penultimate shot, a situation i find myself in often: where the fuck did i park my car?

    • guest2visits

      I want the little quatrefoil necklace. And the shoes; even though I think they are over the top for her outfit.

    • Not applicable

      i don’t really like leopard print- but I’d make an exception for those shoes. #love

    • Susan Bigler

      I am so tired of pictures of her shopping/parking/carrying Starbucks. Her outfit is nothing special. None of this makes me forget her cop tirade. She can go away.
