WCW :: Reese Witherspoon

March 22, 2017

Who doesn’t love Elle from Legally Blonde? Reese’s breakout role and one of her most memorable ones …

Our Woman Crush Wednesday this week is all about the talented and industrious Reese Witherspoon! Her new HBO limited series, Big Little Lies has us all on edge. Oh, and did you know that she now has a clothing line? Draper James, her fashion, accessories and home decor store in Nashville was recently voted the No.1 store in Tennessee by Southern Living magazine and the second-best store in all of the South. The brand is named after Witherspoon’s grandparents, Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon, who are said to be her greatest influences.

A self-proclaimed Type A person, Reese attended Stanford for a year before deciding to focus on acting full-time.  Her breakout role was as Elle in Legally Blonde and just four years later she won the Academy Award for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk The Line. How’s that for Type A?

Last Fall, I had the opportunity to work with Draper James and some other bloggers in Charleston – those Southern gals, I gotta give it to them, they know how to do things right! We had a super fun photo shoot, got to check out the latest Draper James Fashions and we were featured on the Draper James blog.

I’ve always liked Reese Witherspoon; the more I learned about her when she launched Draper James, the more I liked her.  So, when I saw a poster on the subway platform for her HBO series Big Little Lies, I did a little sleuthing and ended up buying the book the mini series is based on by Liane Moriarty. The book tells the story of three first grade moms; it’s a riveting look into their home lives. Not everything is as it seems, hence the title Big Little Lies. Hooked? Check it out on HBO, the series finale is this Sunday at 9pm EST. (There’s just enough time to binge-watch the other 4 episodes before Sunday!)
Stylishly yours,
Kalyn
