So I have to talk a little about this brand because I mean it looks amazing. Draper James is Reese Witherspoons new brand. I mean what southern girl doesn't love Reese Witherspoon? Have you seen Sweet Home Alabama and Walk the Line? By the way if you haven't seen these movies, stop and go see them and then come back and finish reading. You will thank me, I promise! The brand is named after her grandparents, lets take a minute and do a southern belle awww. All together, Awwwwww.
So on to the brand. Reese released the brand May 6th of this year. According to Reese,
“Draper James is all about the grace and charm I was raised with in Nashville, Tennessee. In the south you can never be too kind, too gracious or too well dressed,”
The site contains everything from clothing to housewares. I will admit that the prices are a little on the steep side, but the quality of everything is also really high. So I have been stalking the site to see if there are some pieces I want to add to my collection and here are the ones I have my eye on so far...
So how perfect is this bracelet? I mean it is so versatile. You could wear it dressed up or down. I love pearls. I always saw my grandmother wearing hers growing up and then as an adult they got passed on to me. Pearls never go out of style and always look so classic with anything you wear them with. I also think the price is very good for this piece.
Ok, so I am a sucker for a cute T-Shirt. Especially one that represents the south, how about those manners. I like the fittedness of this shirt and the fact it can be styled so many ways. It's also not too flashy so you can pair it with a bunch of different pieces whether for work or play!
This is one of the pieces I knew I had to have. I have always wanted monogramed julep cups but have never found any that I just loved. These are both classic yet a bit modern, and I love her take on the Magnolia bloom.
Now I think her bags and pouches are completely over priced so I am going to bunch these two items together. As much as I love them both I would never pay that much for a tote or a pouch I am going to put my dirty makeup brushes and makeup in. Because lets be real, thats what would end up in that pouch! As for the tote, it is absolutely (totes) adorable, yet that price for a canvas bag? Not for me my lovelies. I have too many bills to pay and I can think of so many other things I would much rather have! With all that said if you have the money to spare it looks amazing and seems to be made really well.
All in all I think the collection is really nice. Reese Witherspoon put together a quintessential southern collection. There are lovely home pieces, stationary, entertaining pieces, and gorgeous/timeless clothing. I think she did a great job putting everything together and I am really excited to see what all she adds to it. I was not disappointed in the least and I am really glad she added a lifestyle blog to her site so I can do a little celeb stalking every now and again.
