We always thought that our habit of scavenging cool stuff from the sidewalks or off Craigslist was just because we like the thrill of the hunt and because we’re desperately cheap. Turns out we’re actually doing it because it’s cool and everyone in Hollywood is doing it too.
First there was Angelina Jolie, who showed up to the premiere of A Might Heart wearing a $26 vintage dress. That was forever ago, but more recently Demi Moore was spotted at the Pasadena Flea Market combing the aisles looking for a special something – at the end of the day, she went home with a vintage stuffed monkey toy. Ok, so maybe there’s a difference between shopping “vintage” and shopped “used”, but celebs are doing that, too! In the new issue of Self magazine, Jessica Alba admits that most of her home furnishings are used. Says the actress “I’ve bought 70 percent of my house off CraigsList! I’ve found so many things: couches, tables, lamps. I love the idea of recycling furniture and there being a history there.” We love that she’s as thrifty (and green) as we are! Maybe now we can forgive her for the Fantastic Four. [Photo: Getty Images]
