Southern Charm Reese Style

There is no denying actress Reese Witherspoon has style, great taste, charm and she is Southern.

Joining the fray of celebrity lifestyle brands (think Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop and Blake Lively's Preserve), the Oscar winning actress launched the site Draper James that features curated items in home, fashion and jewelry on May 6th. Named after her grandparents Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon, the site sold out of items such as a $325 Derby handbag and the Solid Edgehill dress at $225 almost immediately. Clearly she has a hit on her hands.

Reese notes that "Women in the South love to dress up. They love color and prints and generally love to look put together. Depending on the occasion, several days of thought can go into one outfit!" As a Southerner by birth, I concur.

Rumor has it Reese may open a Draper James store in her hometown of Nashville so stay tuned. And perfect timing for the website launch as her film Hot Pursuit with Sofia Vergara opens in theaters
Friday, May 8th.
