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.

Merry Christmas 2020

  Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas one and all.  May you have a very festive day.   What a crazy year!  At the onset of the year 2020, we all had the best intentions, goals, and anticipation.   Of course, 2020 proved to be the opposite of anything we expected.  Completely 180 degrees of "What Now?"   There is no need to explain because we all have lived it.  What is for certain is that the year is finally ending. Thank goodness.  Some have stated this was the worse year in the history of our country.  Whether it was or is not, the end is in sight and a vaccine is beginning to be administered.  Hopefully, we each can reassess what is important in our lives, anticipate some sort of normalcy swooping back into our lives.  After all, we are social creatures and being isolated is not healthy for the mind or the body.  Spirit of Christmas - The Christmas Star Last Seen 1226 Never stop believing in the future and unknown.  This season we all decorated to the nines, baked cookies, laid ou

Inspiration Weekly Lift - Happy Holidays

  What Brings You Joy? The Spirit of the Holidays It is the small things after all that brings a joyous glow to this holiday season.  This morning, my husband, lit up the living room mantle with some new lights for me to see.  The effect was beautiful, and it made my day sparkle.  Now more than ever, these cherished gestures are what we are longing for at the end of 2020.  And there are many for us to receive and for us to give to others.  We need to be present and aware of the beauty swirling around us.  What we know for certain is that everything in 2020 has been turned upside down. Yet, we continue, dust ourselves off and keep on moving with grace, a smile, and a positive attitude.  Like Cindy Lou Who in the Grinch Who Stole Christmas .  After all, why not?  No one can break our spirits and love for each other.  The holiday is here with new festivities.  We are constantly reminded that our lives are the best gift.  Of course, it is.  We may not have gatherings, but the heart of the

Happy New Year - 2021

  A New Chapter "Cheers to the new year and another chance for us to get it right." - Oprah Winfrey The end of the year fast approaches.  It has been a roller coaster ride for everyone.  The virus, lockdowns, tragic deaths, national election, and other elements caused for a turbulent and unforgettable year.  One we will never forget.  Some say this is the worst year in our history surpassing the depression of the 1930's, September 11th and various Wars.   Perhaps this is so because our country and the entire world shut down at various points.  Even today, lock downs exist, virus is on the rise and vaccines are being administered.  We will never forget last Spring and Summer when eerie photos of empty streets filled the newswires, epic violence occurred and of course endless news about the benevolent virus. However, we continue onward.  We eagerly move forward to a fresh beginning.  We wash away 2020 and start anew with a clean slate filled with possibility, hope and peace

Over the Knee Boots - Monday Favorite Things

  New Day, New Dawn, New Life "Give a girl the right set of boots, shoes, and she can conquer the world." - Marilyn Monroe January 2021 is here.  Yes. We have patiently waited, been thoughtful, diligent and now the year is upon us.  Wishing happiness to all of you as we battle on.  The end is nearing for the virus, which brings smiles to everyone.  It is an exciting time with revitalized energy coursing through our veins.  An era of promise hope and  much more.  Get ready to soar, achieve your dreams and spread goodwill toward others.  "What good is the warmth of summer with out the chill of winter?" - John Steinbeck Along the path, winter has arrived.  Rain, snow, sleet, and hail in the mix for some and in the future for others.  What I love right now?  Over the knee boots.  A must for the cold days of winter.  Here are my favorites for a winter wonderland of fashion.  Even if you are working from home, there is nothing better than slipping on a beautiful pair of o
