I think so but I don't even know because I was trying really hard not to look at any item details so I wouldn't be tempted to then go buy all this stuff.

I'm so glad I inspired your shopping! How did you find the shorts, on Polyvore? The bracelets are Juicy Couture.

I'm now totally addicted to Polyvore, so I thought it would be fun to do a "trainwreck PNM" kind of ensemble of recruitment outfits...you know, maybe as a warning to PNMs. Think sequin hose--that kind of ridiculous! Anyone like that idea???

I don't like it. It's one thing to keep it positive and oooh and ahhh over all the cute ideas... we already have "what not to do" but let's be a little less superficial than to completely cut someone down because of what she's wearing.

goldsilverbronz 08-06-2010 09:39 PM

OK, I decided to just go ahead and do it. Hope y'all enjoy!

WHAT NOT TO WEAR FOR RECRUITMENT
I'll talk about the problems with each outfit--maybe it will serve as a caution to PNMs--and they can avoid the mistakes that some of us made (I personally did not wear animal print, or feathers, or ridiculous amounts of bling...but you never know!)

First we have Round One--Ice Water Teas/Open House (Casual)
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-set/...AAAEc2l6ZQ.jpg
Issues: Animal print. Too much of it! It's okay to be color-coordinated, but there is too much pink and black here, the rubber bracelets are pretty tacky, the shorts don't quite go with the rest of the outfit, and those heels? Not casual, or good for walking!

Round Two--House Tours (Casual)
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-set/...AAAEc2l6ZQ.jpg
Issues: Feathers. That skirt looks like a dead bird and is NOT recruitment appropriate. Paired with a tank top that is partly made of leather=not a good look at all. The shoes are cute...for a night out on the town! Not for a casual round of recruitment, or for lots and lots of walking. The necklace is nice, but paired with the big earrings and clunky shoes, it's too much gold and black and feels overdone.

Round Three--Skit/Philanthropy (Business Casual)
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-set/...AAAEc2l6ZQ.jpg
Issues: Business casual does not=business suit. Especially not one with unflattering horizontal stripes. The jewelry is classy, but it's a whole lot of diamonds and it ends up looking like an outfit for a day at the office.

Round Four--Preference (Cocktail)
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-set/...AAAEc2l6ZQ.jpg
Issues: Where to begin? The dress is too short, too sequined, and a strapless dress will need to be hiked up all night long unless it has some serious structure. Assuming the wearer is attending preference at more than one chapter, it is very unwise to wear the symbol of one sorority, even if "your heart is already set on it", because you risk making the other chapter think you're not interested in them. There is WAY too much sparkle in this outfit. The shoes are very high and the silver and diamonds will just make you look like some kind of glittery party favor.

Bid Day (Tank Tops and Jeans)
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-set/...AAAEc2l6ZQ.jpg
Issues: Destroyed+patched jeans are not classy, and are not going to look good or put-together in photographs. If you're spending the money for designer jeans, get some that don't look like they're falling apart! A tank top does NOT equal this cropped number with the huge bow--how are you supposed to layer a bid day jersey on top? The heavy gold jewelry is more suited for a night out than a bid day, and doesn't coordinate with the outfit.

I posted it before I saw your comment, but I'd be happy to delete it if you think it's inappropriate. The idea was to be humorous, not to cut someone down because of their clothing, or give the impression that clothing is what matters.

Ok maybe I spoke to soon lol....

I wouldn't necessarily put those specific outfits together, but I do love most of the individual pieces.

I'm starting to wonder how I ever got into a sorority with my sense of style :P

I also would wear a lot of the individual pieces, but not the outfits, or not necessarily the outfits for the rounds of recruitment they're placed in (or recruitment at all, maybe). I looked for tutus and sequin hose but they don't have it on Polyvore...very curious.

perfectinpurple 08-06-2010 09:53 PM

No sequined hose?! I'm shocked!!
