Reese Witherspoon, Totes

Welcome to Numbers You Didn't Know You Needed, a series in which E! News channels its inner mathlete. This is where we play the numbers game, and get a little nerdy to bring you a lot of revelations. Have you ever noticed that Leonardo DiCaprio is always on a Citi Bike? Or that Lindsay Lohan is constantly putting her finger in her mouth? Now you will. You may not be staying up nights wondering just how many times Lauren Conrad wore a headband on The Hills, but after our investigation it'll be all you can think about. So come along on this mathematical journey, won't you? Life will never be the same.

It's time to take a moment for Reese Witherspoon's love of puns. 

In fact, she basically created an entire company around this passion—it seems more often than not that Drape James exists purely to allow her to say things like "Happy fall, y'all!" and "Pleased as punch!" Witherspoon gets to share her affinity for brightly colored prints—Florals! Paisleys! Plaids!—along with tips and tricks for, say, throwing a football tailgate fit for a J. Crew catalog or drinking tea at all hours of the day. 

And, most importantly, Draper James has given Reese a global platform to share her cheeky tote bags. 

It makes sense that she would become the world's leading connoisseur in tote bags. If you've ever browsed a tabloid or women's magazine, you know that she's a busy mom of three just trying to juggle it all! How does she balance it? How does she run from hot yoga to PTA meetings to business obligations? Why, with the help of her tote, of course!

And these aren't just any totes; Reese carts her very important items in nothing but the most highly Draper James-branded bags with the cutest sayings emblazoned in adorable cursive writing. This company is barely but a year old, yet she's managed to work cheeky totes into her daily paparazzi-followed life on more than a few occasions. But can you blame her? A day is just so much brighter when get to read the phrase "Totes, y'all" for hours on end. 

We have caught her carrying a cheeky tote bag exactly 12 times. 

Her personal favorite is her "Totes, y'all!" totes. We could write an entire essay on the excellent word play at play here (see, we can do it too, Reese!) but who has time for that? Certainly not Reese Witherspoon, who is clearly rushing to catch a flight out of LAX while toting all her plane necessities.

In fact, she loves "Totes y'all" so much that she has it in several styles.

But, no good Southerner would own a collection of tote bags without at least one dedicated to the great Dolly Parton

But mostly she's faithful to Totes, Y'all.

She carries it when her everyday tote just is not spacious enough to fit all of her belongings.

She carries it when she needs something blue and white to coordinate a blue and white outfit.

She carries it when she needs just a little pop of color.

She switches to "Hello, sugar," when she doesn't feel like honoring Dolly Parton or...y'all's.

She also carries Hello, Sugar when she dresses like she's going to a picnic.

Or when she's going to a very, very chic rodeo.

Then she goes back to the O.G. when she wears yet another blue and white 'fit. (Which, we now notice, happens alarmingly often).

But beyond the catchy phrases, these totes provide ample sturdiness in which to lift lots of heavy items. Her totes are always there for her, and that's a beautiful thing.
