“Legally Blonde” fans who can’t let go (ahem, me) aren’t the only ones still taking style wisdom from Reese Witherspoon’s beloved character in the film, Elle Woods. Reese herself just so happens to share a style mantra with Elle! In an interview with People about her fashion line, Draper James, she shared the fashion words she lives by:

“When you look good, you feel good. I know that’s what Elle Woods says, but it’s true!”

In addition to Elle, she draws inspiration from her grandparents, especially her grandmother.

“She was just sort of this quintessential Southern lady. She didn’t leave the house without feeling somewhat put together. That doesn’t mean she was dressed to the nines at all moments, but she pulled herself together and her presentation to the world was like, ‘I’ve got my stuff together.’ But it’s a good lesson as a young person: It doesn’t matter what’s going on in your life, but you’ve got to show your best self to the world.”

Love it! Great advice, Elle Reese.
