No rest for Reese!
The always-busy Reese Witherspoon is hard at work producing, acting, mothering, walking red carpets and beyond — all the while designing her own fashion and lifestyle brand, Draper James. And, as it turns out, little ‘ol DJ continues to grow (and grow and grow).
The latest: The 41-year-old’s line is officially getting the department store treatment. After opening standalone stores in Nashville, Lexington and Dallas and growing its online presence — including through collaborations with fellow online retailers like an exclusive collaboration for net-a-porter.com and shortly a beauty box with Birchbox — DJ is officially getting some shopping floor space at 15 Nordstrom stores (and nordstrom.com!) starting today.
What you’ll find there is everything she’s known for, including the star’s southern-inspired clothes, accessories and home accents — some of which are completely exclusive to Nordstrom — for $18 to $250.
“When you’re on movies, you’re talking to writers and directors trying to shape the story and characters. In Draper James meetings, we try to connect a story to a product,” she told PeopleStyle last year of how she crafts her pieces, including staples like tees that say “What Would Dolly Do?.” “We create things that remind us of our southern upbringings and want everything we put out there to bring you joy and be something you’ll have forever.”

Her tip for finding something you love? Be yourself. “For me, fashion doesn’t have to be serious,” she said. “It doesn’t have to make you feel bad. People don’t have to be snotty and rude when you go into a store. There are a lot of places in this world where people feel like they don’t belong. I want people to feel like they belong.”
And the latest place she wants you to belong is Nordstrom. So, we’ve perused the virtual shelves and so far, we’re in love with her seersucker dresses, gingham rompers and skirts and cateye sunnies.
