Okay, so you don't have the bodyguard or the private plane or the second home in St. Tropez. Yet when it comes to shopping, most celebs like to shop just like us. They see something, they like it, they buy it. Since I love to see A-listers wearing things I can actually afford, I've rounded up my favourite celebrity musts that you can shop right here at White Oaks Mall. Luckily, you can head to the mall without an entourage, screaming fans and the Twitterverse exploding that they just saw you at Gap. Sometimes it's actually pretty nice being normal, don't you think?
Whether you're in last-minute shopping mode or just want to pick yourself up a little something as a proverbial pat on the back, you might want to check out these celeb-approved finds first. Oh, and be sure to check back on this blog next week. I've got a few great giveaways in store for you!
