Preference Point

Can I tell you a story about this skirt? I can? Okay, good. This is my old Preference skirt from sorority recruitment. The pattern was an old bridesmaid pattern and the top is horrible. I mean horrible. But I kept it, because who is going to buy an old, ugly bridesmaid-looking dress that was custom fitted for me? That's right. No one.

There it was, just sitting in my closet, waiting to be worn again but having no hopes. But then, when I was attempting to sleep last night, this outfit came to me. The bottom line is that I really wanted to wear this collar and this is all that I could come up with. Suggestions?

tee- BCBG
skirt- homemade
jacket- TJ Maxx
shoes- Naturalizer
necklace- thrifted

So there you go, AOIIs with old ugly preference dresses, my challenge to you is to attempt to style your old nemesis!



  1. Thankfully our pref night outfits for my sorority were just LBDs! I love how you styled this though, it looks feminine but a little edgy with the jackets! (mixing styles is my favorite! :)

  2. Cute outfit! I love how simple it is but the color blocking is really bold and makes it fun vs. basic.

  3. O la la, well done with the skirt! Looks SO nice!

  4. i love this outfit! the red skirt is so in your face and you paired it so great with a simple tee and an edgy jacket. love it.
