Reese’s Hardwear is a creative space designed to inspire & educate. RH offers of the moment fashion trends, original styling that shows versatility and options that aren’t always obvious, and suggested products to achieve looks.
Taylor was born and raised just outside of Charlotte, NC. She attended Appalachian State University and Queens University of Charlotte where she earned her degree in Sports Communication. Taylor has always been equally passionate about sports and fashion. After college she worked at Belk for five years where she held positions in trend forecasting and cosmetics. In 2013 she started her first blog, The Fancier Fan as a way to combine both of her passions and to style her jewelry line. In 2015, The Fancier Fan was updated to Reese’s Hardwear to encompass a wider audience and product assortment.
Taylor met her husband, Wes in 2012 while working for the Gastonia Grizzlies. They dated for three years and married in June 2014. Taylor and Wes are currently living in the Charlotte area and love attending sporting events, good hamburgers and trips to the beach.
In addition to Reese’s Hardwear, Taylor is a regular contributor to Scoop Charlotte and is involved with several of the fashion weeks held in the Carolinas. You can often find her shopping local boutiques or her favorite bead store. Although it is no longer her primary focus, Taylor still enjoys making extravagant jewelry. When she isn’t writing and blogging, she enjoys reading and working out with her girlfriends.
Why did you start Reese’s Hardwear? I started blogging in 2013 as a way to “style” the jewelry line I started in high school. Within a few years, people were asking me to blog their products and the blog (then the fancier fan) took off and the jewelry making became more of a hobby.
Do you still make jewelry & can I buy it? Yes! I have a variety of pieces – mostly earrings and necklaces- and still really enjoy doing custom work. My love of sports has only grown so team colored and themed pieces are my favorites. If you would like to shop RH Jewelry, please email Taylor at email@example.com and note “Jewelry” in the subject line.
How did you come up with the name Reese’s Hardwear? Theres’s a small town right outside of Charlotte called Cramerton. On the main road leading into town, there used to be an actual hardware store called “Reece’s Hardware”. That Reece family is totally unrelated to me / my in-laws and spells their last name with a “c” – in case you were wondering. It has been closed for many years but the building remains unoccupied. One day I was driving home from the gym and was thinking about how hard it is to pick a name for a blog / business. I looked up and saw the old Reece’s Hardware building and it hit me. Duh- my last name is Reese and if I just changed how hardware is spelled, it would take on a whole new meaning.
How did you meet your husband? Wes and I met in 2011 during my summer internship at the Gastonia Grizzlies. It was a long season and we worked so much that Summer we were together 24/7 so we got to know each other very quickly. Our first “date” was the Coca-Cola 600 race in Charlotte. Wes and his friends had a 4-pack of tickets and one came available the day of the race. He offered it to me and of course I took it! When the season ended we kept dating and were married 3 years +1 week later.
