Sarah Michelle: I’m a speed-shop champion

Sarah Michelle Gellar jokes she has developed an almost superhuman shopping ability since having kids.

The 37-year-old actress shares two small children with her husband of 12 years, Freddie Prinze Jr.

And because she’s strapped for time working and caring for her vibrant family, whenever she goes into a store she’s looking to leave swiftly.

“I do this thing called a ‘speed shop,’ which is I have 10 minutes and I will come in and I’ll see how much [I can buy],” she told People magazine. “If that was a television show I would win it!”

Sarah is mother to four-year-old daughter Charlotte and 20-month-old son Rocky.

And running after her children has altered her sense of fashion tremendously.

“You have to think about certain things. My heels have certainly gotten a little bit lower, so thank you platform sneakers, I appreciate you,” she smiled.

But it appears Charlotte is developing a much more selective taste when it comes to wardrobe choices.

Sarah says her little girl is constantly evaluating what she wears.

“My daughter [Charlotte] says to me all the time, ‘Mom, why do you look so understated?’” the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star shared.

Sarah went on to say she thinks Charlotte may have picked up such high level fashion terminology from Fancy Nancy, a children’s books series written by Jane O’Connor which centres on an adventurous little girl with an extravagant taste for all things sartorial.

“That would have to be my guess. Is there a four-and-a-half-year-old street lingo for fashion?” she laughed. “[Charlotte’s fashion sense is] apparently way better than mine, and way fancier!”
