There are some things that you can always count on: the sun will rise and set, the Earth will rotate, and former Victoria's Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio will shop — specifically at the Brentwood Country Mart. It's no secret that the supermodel loves to have her retail therapy moments (we recently caught her loading up at Isabel Marant pre-Coachella and last Halloween we learned she did her costume hunting at Aahs in Westwood) but we now have it on good authority — via our incessant celebrity photo investigating — that the Westside resident regularly visits the family friendly shopping center, often with son Noah.
On Tuesday, however, it was a footloose and fancy-free event when Ambrosio had a girls-only shopping day with a group of friends where she was seen toting a few pink bags from resort wear mainstay Calypso St. Barth. Perhaps the crop-top and boyfriend jeans clad beauty was prepping for a vaycay with the shop's consistent collection of luxe swimwear, coverups, wedges, and other beachwear staples. Upon further investigation (we weren't kidding about our detective work!) we can also see she made a pit stop at contemporary clothier Intermix.
