Reese Witherspoon - Draper James Apparel & Home



Southern Grace & Charm 


Reese Witherspoon has enchanted American audiences in films for over two decades.  This Academy Award, Golden Globe, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild and Critics Choice Award for Best Actress in Walk the Line (2005) remains an actress with infinite acting chops and ladylike determination all stemming from strong southern roots of grace and charm. Of course, there are a slew of movies to count though the most memorable include Witherspoon as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde (2001) a zany fashionable southern California gal with appeal off to law school, Sweet Home Alabama (2002), Water for Elephants (2011) and in last years film Wild (2015).  And, a producer to boot with Gone Girl (2014).


Elle Woods - Legally Blonde (2001)

"Whoever said orange was the new pink, was seriously disturbed."  Elle Woods


In 2015, Witherspoon debuted a new fashion and home line, Draper James, reflecting Southern culture with a modern Elle Woods southern California twist.  The brand is beautifully appointed with some pieces produced in the good ole USA.  The price point varies from fourteen to four hundred with quality as a forefront priority.  The apparel is cheery, colorful, classic, delightful and very retro with a DJ monogram.  And, if inspired a personalized monogram can be added to select items. Yes, Draper James is the answer for the classic American lady and a hospitable home.





Draper James

The name was derived by Witherspoon's influential grandparents - Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon.  These two taught her about southern gracious living from how to dress, caring for a home, being helpful to a neighbor and to always be open to visitors in her house.

We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…
