Top 10 Tuesday – Draper James

On our recent jaunt to Dallas, visiting Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James store was at the top of our list of things to do.  This mecca of Southern style did NOT disappoint.  Here are our Top 10 reasons why we fell in love with our girl Reese’s store.

1-DraperJames-Dallas-1Enter Long (literally):

1.Fashionista Long thinks the clothes are even better in person. The web site truly doesn’t do them justice.  The fabrics are high quality, the clothes are well cut and worth what I initially thought was a bit of a steep price point.  Think Trina Turk or Tibi quality.  (For the record, her items seem to run big, so size down.)

Seersucker skirt


Cutest ever top


Gingham shirt for Loomis


2.She had me at the Jack Rogers collabo.  Not sure which is cuter, the light blue, seersucker or “Hello Darlin‘”

3.Dogs are front and center, as they should be.

We freaked out when we realized these mugs came as a pair (kinda like us!)

…and wait, there’s more. It’s Rosie and Petunia!

Can we talk about the notecards?



5. Dolly is a big deal, as she should be!  Bag, tee and cocktail napkins are all adorable.


5.There are price points for everyone.  The clothes may be a bit spendy, but you could pick up several adorable, totally giftable items for under $20.

Hair ties ($6), trinket tray ($18) and the book everyone needs ($17)!

Enter Loomis:

6. SO MUCH I loved about this store!  Starting with the precious Reese-doppleganger manager who promptly offered my hungover self sweet tea upon arrival.


Don’t mind if I do!

7. I obvs went bananas for the design of the store, by none other than Mark D. Sikes.

And how fun is this?  You can customize your tote with pins.

I would choose the horseface (obvs) Gemini (Loomis) & Capricorn(Long)


9. Speaking of horsefaces, I am kicking myself that I resisted this sunhat (now sold out – womp!).  May have to go for the clutch.

10. Besides the striped awnings, hangover helpers, and cuteness overload, what I loved most about this visit was shopping with Long.


even if it looks like I’m embarrassed to be seen with her.

Not true!


and if we play our cards right.
