The lovely Lori Loughlin was out and about at the understated yet always star-studded Brentwood Country Mart this weekend with her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, and her two daughters – Isabella Rose, 11, and Olivia Jade, 10. Like most moms visiting this quaint local shopping and dining spot, Lori looks like she has the west-side LA mom weekend drill down: one daughter looks like she just came from (or is on her way to) play for her basketball team and the other might be en route to a birthday party – hence the reason for Lori carrying a bag from the Toy Crazy toy store. And I can almost guarantee it (as I’m there with my kids in soccer jerseys or dance outfits almost every Saturday!) if lunch was part of this outing, the family most likely enjoyed a basket of chicken and some of the best fries in town from the one and only Ready-Chik counter.
Another familiar face at the Country Mart is Debra Messing, seen here with her son Roman, and carting a bag from the Poppy Store. Run by Jim Belushi’s wife Jennifer, the store is a favorite of celeb moms ranging from Jennifer’s bff Reese Witherspoon to Jennifer Garner. I’m not sure what Debra has in her bag, but I can tell you that there’s a good chance she was able to have the store to herself (or at least have the curtains drawn) so she could shop without fans or paparrazi tagging along.
Poppy, along with other stores in the exclusive “mart” are known for making special accommodations and keeping celeb shopping excursions on the QT, bringing the stars out often, especially during busy weekends with their kids.
