Sorority Recruitment: Preference

At my university, sorority recruitment lasts three days. My sorority chose to keep the first night's Victoria's Secret Pink theme consistent with the second night as well. Instead of black skinny jeans and blazers, our outfits were hot pink dresses and nude heels! Unfortunately, I was too busy to remember to take a picture! *Facepalm* So we'll skip ahead to the last and final night of recruitment, Preference.

Preference has always been my favorite night of sorority recruitment as it is the most intimate. At Preference, you really feel the sisterly bonds between the members. It's a very special night as the sorority typically has a beautiful ceremony they share with the potential new members. On my campus, the sorority women all wear black dresses for this special night. 

Seniors! Can you find me?

I was completely and totally obsessed with the black dress I wore for this year's Preference Night! Have you heard of Rent the Runway? What about Hire Style?

Hire Style is a start up that rents designer gowns for 80-90% off retail prices! When Jessica, the owner, contacted me about borrowing a gown, I couldn't resist! I chose to borrow the Opening Ceremony Jersey Sweetheart dress and I was so sad when I had to return this gorgeous dress! The back was open (you can see me above, as I am the only one with an open back dress!) and the fit was beyond perfect. 

With two of my favorites, Emma and Natalie!
I loved the neckline and the back of this dress so I chose to style my hair in a classic french twist to show off my favorite parts of the dress. The fabric had a texturized pattern that made it stretch to hug one's curves perfectly. I tried to get a close up photo but that didn't work out so well, haha! 

The great thing about Hire Style is that with every item that is rented, Hire Style provides 8 meals for Americans who are struggling with hunger through Feeding America's Give a Meal Program. Look stylish and help an important cause at the same time! There's nothing better than that. 

Now it's your chance to win a $40 Hire Style gift card so you can look fabulous for an exciting occasion in your life! Enter to win in the Rafflecopter below!
