    can’t stop laughing!

  • Noah

    Has a Bitter Kitten made a bulk order of “REESE: THE PARKING LOT TOUR” t-shirts yet? No?

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Hey, its what you do when you haven’t really worked much in a while, ya know? Gotta keep people looking at you.

      • Carleenml

        yabbut … why always parking lots? WHY? why not a restaurant? a ball game? a theater…a street corner just beyond a parking lot…a faux gym …I think she holds the record among celebrities for asphalt. It’s a scream.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          Cause there is always lots of room for photographers to get a good angle. (grin)

          • Carleenml

            I wonder if they have a map tacked up in the office with little push pins to mark which lots they’ve toured to date.

          • Noah

            I mean, if they do, then I think we’ve found the back of the t-shirt! Good work, team!

          • Carleenml

            lol – you beat me – I was just going to say the same!

          • decormaven

            Please, some graphic design-minded BK make a T shirt with a little map showing pins (maybe tiny handbags) to show the parking lots she’s strolled. This would sell like hotcakes.

        • Tee

          Restaurants, ball games and theaters requires interactions with others.

        • EveEve

          Think about it: free parking, unlimited angles, no building shadows, no ugly storefronts and sidewalks, no photobombing tourists, ergo no need for bodyguards, and quick getaways for all concerned. When the celebrity makes it easy for the paps, the paps return the favor.

        • latina fey

          it makes her look like she actually runs her own errands like the little people do.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          Daylight and enough room to sashay a bit?

    • Julie Ree

      Let me look that up on Etsy.

    • Thomas

      Tracy, ahem, Reese, would love to know that she has adoring fans!

      • Noah

        I’m just saying Tracy needs a merch table.

        • Thomas

          It would be perfect for Tracy’s run for president!

    • KinoEye

      If I were rich, that would be my first expenditure behind paying off my student loans. Check back in seven years 😀

    • Thomas

      Can I make a suggestion? Have “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?” on the front and “REESE: THE PARKING LOT TOUR” above the second to last pic on the back.

      • Noah

        OMG I love that.

        • Thomas

          It should seriously be a t-shirt. I can see it doing wonders at Urban Outfitters and American Apparel. If anybody steals this, THE BITTER KITTENS THOUGHT OF IT FIRST!

          • Noah


      • RawrArgh

        It should have all the dates she’s been featured on here down the back like stops on a music tour.

        • Thomas

          Haha But then you would have to keep adding to it!

          • RawrArgh

            It could be a different tour(front slogan) every few months!

    • AlexisPayne

      I’d like to order one please!

  • Kiltdntiltd

    its a great outfit, though the perfectly matching lip/purse color is bugging me a bit. lol i’m sure she is crestfallen, knowing that I disapprove.

    • decormaven

      She’s inconsolable. Send her a muffin basket from Whole Foods and she will perk right up.

      • Kiltdntiltd

        What a charming thought. I’m ON it!

      • Imasewsure

        I think that would have to be a kale shake not a muffin basket unfortunately though. Reese don’t do carbs

      • rh33

        She’s Junior League. A pimento cheese spread and hot pepper jelly gift set.

        • formerlyAnon

          Nailed it.

    • jtabz

      Not to mention the matching pedicure. Eek!

  • Alicia

    Hideous shoes but the rest is super cute. I feel like this is designed to school Taylor Swift on how it is done.

    • Grumpy Girl

      Yeah, but that’s the problem with the color of the shoes on Reese’s coloring–hard to distinguish the foot from the leather. These shoes would be better for someone with much darker, or lighter skin, where there is greater contrast.

      And somehow they look like flats when she walks; it’s a wierd optical illusion.

      • Lower L

        I loathe the color of her shoes. For some reason, that specific color says “cheap Naugahyde” to me, even though I’m sure these are real leather.

    • 3boysful

      I will–*dramatic sigh*–save you from the shoes–send ’em my way.

    • fursa_saida

      Upvoted for correct spelling of tassels!

      • Alicia

        I’d like to thank the automatic spellcheck – I get that one wrong every time. And sandals.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I’ve seen some staged photo ops since I’ve been reading here, but this one is a work of art. Is she trying to turn parking lot appearances into her own performance art piece?

    That said, the outfit is crazy cute.

  • Glam Dixie

    Love this, epic hair flip and all. The shape of that top isn’t the greatest but she is working the hell out of that ensemble. Cute shoes, love the orange (or red?) bag, and those sunglasses are killer.

  • FrigidDiva

    Is the top faux-leather too? It takes some high-level clothes wearing to be able to wear faux-leather anything in July. Can we all just pause and look at how she’s holding her purse though? Taylor, THIS is how you hold a purse!

    • demidaemon

      EXACTLY. School is in session, Tay Tay!

  • d4divine

    …from red carpet to parking lot. Werk that asphalt jungle Mrs Thang!

  • MilaXX

    Dear Taylor Swift,
    This is how you do a parking lot/street tour.
    No Love,

    • @Biting Panda

      Notice, the weight of actual things in my purse, mean that I must bend my arm, as the peons do.

  • Thomas

    Wish the top didn’t billow or stick out so much, but other than that, this is pretty fab. Tracy Flick says to move out of her way before she runs you over! Epic bitchface and hair flip!

  • Jessi03


  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume


  • PinkyK

    Love you guys! And that bag….

  • SugarSnap108

    The hairflip/bitchface shot is everything.

    Love the look, except for the sassle shoes.

  • Tanya Wade

    I so admire her commitment to this “character.” Oh, wait, that’s her soul shining through. Epic.

  • Wink

    Cute. But why use faux leather for a summer outfit?

  • Anna

    And though she be but little, her bitchface is fierce.

    • Constant Reader

      I am so stealing that!

      • Anna

        I’m sure Shakespeare wouldn’t mind 😉

    • smayper

      FTW!!!!! Midsummer Night’s Dream…the ultimate bitch-off. Titania wins.

      • MoHub

        And thank you for putting the apostrophe-s in the right place!

    • Danielle

      Ah, the title of my memoir!

  • In_Stitches

    I want to see January Jones and Reese face off in a bitch face royal rumble. If only MTV still did that claymation show…

    The look? Love the accessories. I just wish she’d either picked the top or the skirt, not both. I can see them working together well, just not in those shapes.

  • cocohall

    This outfit serves to remind how petite she is – that is a crop top and very short skirt on the model; on Miss Witherspoon, it is just a regular top and a very ladylike hemline. I have to admit, I’ve missed her a bit when she was off gracing parking lots elsewhere, away from her usual territory. She can click through the requisite faces and work the bag like no one else. And I love that bag. I’m off to practice hair flipping and bag pimping NOW.

    • Grumpy Girl

      I love the bag, but to the point of how petite she is–it looks a little too large for her. I want it to be a smidge smaller, so that it doesn’t look like she could fold herself up and fit in the bag.

      • demidaemon

        Well, it looks like she has actual stuff in there, so I forgive the size a little.

    • decormaven

      “Bag pimpin, spendin cheese…”

  • Anapestic

    Tassels, eh? I feel like the practical limit for the number of tassels you can wear at one time is zero. I’m willing to expand that to two if you’re a stripper. Or a window.

  • ginnyt20


  • yllas

    LOVE everything about this look. LOVE it. I would love to wear all of that, am green with envy. The cuff bracelet is great, too.

  • imspinningaround

    I think those shoes are wrong for the rest of the outfit, but I can’t figure out what would be cuter. Maybe a little gold kitten heel mule? Oooh! Ooh! Or those Jimmy Choos with the plastic strap across the instep?

    • marlie

      Those sandals with the gold cuff around the ankle that she has worn a couple of times before.

  • Diane Iafrate

    well, its a nice performance !! and she’s looking really cute !

  • Renee

    the best thing about this parking lot tour: her purse looks like it has stuff in it!!!!

  • Janet B

    Between auto correct and my lack of caffeine, this post was doomed.

  • crash1212

    This is, by far, my most favorite parking lot look ever. I love everything going on here…especially the hair flip.

  • TM

    Buzzfeed listicles keep pushing TSwift as a walkathon icon. Have they seen the difference? I feel so bad for my generation.

  • Janet B


  • KinoEye

    I will find a way to work “sassy tassles” into a conversation today. It’s my goal of the day, TLo.

    • Shelby

      This is indeed a worthy goal. 😀

      • Shelby

        (And please tell us if you succeed. With details).

        • marlie

          By the time the TLounge rolls around, right?!

  • Vivi N

    Give. Me. This. Entire. Outfit.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I have an irrational hatred of tassels, so she lost me at the shoes. Love the rest.

  • MoHub

    I’d like this better in a crisp cotton/linen blend.

  • Shawn EH


  • Jacob Bowen

    YES!!!!!! (MANY snaps accompanying this yes!) This was the best way to start my last hectic Friday of the summer, minus maybe some mostly (or fully) naked photos of Matt Bomer…

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Tay deploys handlers. Reese counters with a hairflip. This is getting ugly and a little scary.

  • Mothra

    That’s a big bag. I wonder what is in it? #WhatsInYourBag

  • V No Privacy

    I wish I was as good at walking to my car as she is…. :(

  • Mrs. Julien


  • gitchygitchymama

    the hefty bag give the chin good proportion.

  • MinAgain

    She is the reigning queen of the parking lot paparazzi.

  • MandyM

    This is what Taylor Swift only wishes she could pull off.

  • RescueMe23

    First and foremost – she looks great! I love the look on her. Parking lots? Why the hell not…

  • SewingSiren

    Not believable as candid, but it is at least seasonally appropriate.

  • Danielle


  • Paula Pertile

    She should give workshops on how to do this. Can you see Taylor, and all the rest, lined up in a parking lot somewhere, taking turns practicing their walks (with bags on arms), with Miss Reese shouting commands from the sidelines?

    • J-Ko

      Hand Bags and Hair Flips 101

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    What a fabulous summer parking lot tour outfit. If I could wear it I would steal the whole look.

  • suzq

    She’s fantastic. I crave that bag and the outfit kicks ass. But most of all, I love her knobby, wrinkly, scarred knees. Seriously.

  • prisma

    I squee’d when I saw Reese in the lineup of this morning’s posts. The parking lot chronicles have become my favorite subject.

  • Imasewsure

    Hairflip bitchface!! YES

  • Alyssa

    Your commentary cracks me up!

  • Gatto Nero

    The parking lot tour continues.
    What a life.

  • Imasewsure

    Hate to go there but she is too old for this look… but the attitude helps

    • ReadBarbara

      Agree — the outfit is sort of cute, but in a sort-of-cute-for-my-6-year-old niece way.

  • random_poster

    I love that bag in that color, and I am not a high-end-bag-type person. If I had all the money…*sigh*.

  • JauntyJohn

    At least she’s a crook-of-the-elbow bag wielder. I thank her for that.
    She certainly makes this work.
    I am beyond curious to watch, as her new, “serious” movie opening approaches, how/if this parking lot paparazzi dance will continue.

  • International Model

    Her bitchface makes me wonder what would have happened if parking lot tours were part of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford’s day….

  • EEKstl

    ROFLMAO! She really does look great though. No one does Parking Lot like Reese.

  • SusannaGA

    TLo, this was the best little story I’ve read in a long time, from the deceptively happy beginning to the surprise twist at the end. You are masters of the photo narrative form.

  • unbornfawn

    At least she knows what season it is. That’s a A+ hair flip if I ever saw one.

  • deliadee

    I love you guys.

  • evave2

    I like the shoes but I think the tassle would make me go crazy so I would probably ask my husband to tastefully cut it off with the saw we keep in our basement.

    Well put-together look otherwise. Love the hair-flip and resultant bitchface. My hair doesn’t flip like that. But then I don’t bitchface like that either.

  • mjmiller77

    hahaha – but dang, she always looks great. others should take note.

  • Terri Terri

    It’s all parking lots, all the time, with this gal.
    sidenote — Now the Joni Mitchell song is stuck in my head.

    • demidaemon

      Not a bad song to have on repeat, fortunately.

  • marlie

    Miss Reese (and Gwen Stefani yesterday) decided that Taylor Swift and some of the amateur ladystars needed a lesson in how to do the parking lot/sidewalk tour – including carrying and showing off the bag – the RIGHT way.

  • venusvelvet

    Even the dark blue-ish background behind the hair flip pic complements her colors – it’s like she knew.

  • melanie0866

    That top would be cute with pants or jeans but with the skirt it’s too too much.

  • dash1211

    A Parking Lot Diva (PLD) if I ever saw one!

  • Qitkat

    These celebrities are practically writing TLo’s next book for them, aren’t they?

  • allisankelly

    That didn’t take long. She just got back from shooting a movie in New Orleans (per her instagram).

  • formerlyAnon

    God damn. She is a fucking pro, she is. (And no questionable midriff baring, either!)

    Today, the grudging admiration is outstripping the mostly-irrational hate. I do so have a weakness for people who do what they do competently.

  • kimmeister

    That’s a bit too much laser-cut in one outfit for my taste, but I am in love with that amazing bag.

  • LMGordon

    Toes match the bag = silly. However, the bag is gorgeous and so is the skirt. Shoes are cute, but aren’t the best with this outfit. Finally, that round neckline on a sleeveless top always looks like “Grandma’s summer housedress” to me. It’s the attitude that makes the outfit work overall, however.

  • SweetJess MeanGreen

    I’d like to see this outfit on Elle Fanning without the bag and different shoes.

    She looks fine but I’m just over the whole Southern Belle image that she has. It’s played and completely false.

  • demidaemon


    Reese caps. I am happy now.

  • livesarah

    I kind of hate everything but the bag, but somehow it almost looks WERQ-worthy. That’s no mean feat.

  • Columbinia

    If I were Reese Witherspoon and read this commentary, I would never do one of these paparazzi parades again. [Hair flip] Ever.

  • Wellworn

    I love the sunglasses, wonder who makes them? Not that I can afford it.

  • deech_sea

    That was hilarious! Her clothes, shoes, bag all look great together. Love the shades! This is my favorite yet.

  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    This bitch OWNS. You gotta admire it.

  • crashtestbonnie

    I *COVET* that bag! Also, all points to this woman: she’s one of very few celebrities that keeps her head up when she’s out and about “running errands.” She could teach us all a little about rocking the “Be Me” attitude. :)

    Also also, this: “Miss Reese Witherspoon wants you to go now. You got your shot.” <— ROTFLMAO

  • JynxTheCat

    Who owns the summer? YOU DO GIRL! but honestly – is she an actress any longer or is this her FT gig?
