Sweet Southern Draper James

Reese Witherspoon gets more precious every year.  I remember her in The Man in the Moon (loved that movie) and knew she had a bright future in store. So, not only is she an Academy Award winner, but now she's also a major fashionista.  Reese recently kicked off her own line- Draper James- a lovely collection inspired by her own southern heritage and grandparents, Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon.  Absolutely charming and oozing the spirit of Steel Magnolias, here's a few pieces from the collection I'm a fan of:

Floral cover-up- screams take me to a tropical island!
Kiawah Cover Up $200
The Magnolia outfit- as expected!
Bristol short $125, tote $165
And if you don't already have your own...You should!
Custom mint julep $85
Magnolia on your wrist?  Why not?
Enamel bangle $75
Pretty cute stuff (a little pricey) but definitely makes me miss the south!

Find Your Fringe

The southwestern girl in me likes suede fringe more than I care to admit.  :)  But the good news is that it's very in style this year, and done appropriately, I feel like it's a fun way to release your inner bohemian/cowgirl.  My recommendation:  stick to shoes or handbags.  Fringe on your clothing gets dangerously close to rockin' Steve Nicks attire, and well, she really should be the only one doing that!

Here's my favorites across the web:
Steve Madden Fringly $129.95
If only I could pull these off...such a high heel!
Stuart Weitzman LoveFringe $455
Walkable heel with layered fringe- love!
Very Volatile "Idea" $82.95
Big fan of the added studs on these!
Target Sam & Libby $39.99
Shall we give fringe a try?
