Gifts For Your Little

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

We know that Big/Little Reveal is around the corner for a lot of you ladies so we decided to do a little shopping for you to help you choose the absolute cutest gifts for your Little. For those who don't know what Big/Little Reveal is (or Mom/Dot (Daughter)) it is when an active member gets paired with an initiated member based on best fit. It is common throughout the years of being in your sorority to do functions with your Little and really bond with them. For Big/Little Reveal gifts, it is 100% about personalization, which is why we really loved this Acrylic Block Letter Monogram Necklace from BaubleBar. You can each have matching ones!

Sisters Succeeding: Sharon Bui, Frill Clothing Company



This 'Sisters Succeeding' post is big. Like, Shark Tank BIG.

North Carolina State University Chi Omega, Sharon Bui, partnered up with Kate Steadman to form Frill Clothing Company and now they are scheduled to appear on the television show, Shark Tank, on
March 6​th at 9/8c on ABC!

Shark Tank is a reality television program, which allows aspiring entrepreneurs to make business pitches to a panel of investors. “We are delighted to appear on Shark Tank,” says co founder Sharon Bui, “this is huge for promoting our business and we can’t wait for America to see us pitch our pride and joy to the ‘shark’ investors.

Frill Clothing is a startup clothing company, located in Raleigh, NC. The thought of Frill was first conceived when Sharon Bui, a member of Greek Life at N.C. State University, realized there was no way of buying fashionable clothing she was required to wear for formal sorority recruitment. Bui then joined with Kate Steadman, who was studying advertising with a minor in fashion at Appalachian State, and Frill Clothing was born.

While Frill Clothing is primarily targeted to sorority women who are looking to purchase affordable, yet stylish, outfits for recruitment, there are other items available on their online boutique. Frill is branching out to sell items such as jewelry, home d├ęcor, apparel and various accessories.

Frill is also an important member of the bridal community. Their skirts can be purchased for bridal parties to put on a new fashion forward spin on bridesmaid’s dresses. The skirts are stylish, affordable, and can be worn on multiple occasions. Frill has outfitted many wedding parties and the bride, as well as, the bridesmaids have been extremely pleased with the end result.

Bui and Steadman launched Frill while both were still earning their degrees, which have required a lot of hard work, and learning how to be financially resourceful. “The past couple of years we have learned what it takes to be an entrepreneur,” said Steadman, “it requires dedication but we enjoy coming to work every morning so the hard work pays off!

Be sure to catch Frill’s episode of Shark Tank on ABC this week!

5 Over-sized Topshop Sweaters To Add To Your Closet


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

As the weather gets cooler and cooler (seems like forever in Arizona, but Seattle is already feeling it!) it's time to clean out our closets of all of our short shorts and tanks and whip out those cute, over-sized sweaters we've been looking forward to bringing out again for this cool season. An over-sized sweater with some hot leggings or trendy jeans can make for the cutest fall/winter outfit. Pair it with some pointed heels or converse, UGGS, and/or Tims and you're ready to take on the world with your Fall fashion. As we were on the hunt for oversized sweaters, we found that Topshop has tons of cute sweaters!  Here's our top 5 favorites from Topshop! Check them out above!

It Girl Trend Report: Graphic Tee


I am sure you have discovered before that we have an obsession with graphic tees. Graphic Tees are a fashion piece that are timeless; they never go out of style! Our It Girls agreed too so we were curious what their go-to graphic tees were. If there is any store we can count on to have some awesome graphic tees it is Forever 21 and that is where Avery found her super cute, flower-crowned woman graphic tee. Avery said, "I usually pair it with a jean jacket, some white converse, and a fun statement necklace if I'm feelin fancy! It's really easy to just throw it on and go! And it's soft and comfy too!" Another place that sells some really trendy graphic tees is Urban Outfitters! Their "Day of the Dead" inspired graphic tees always catch our eye, and they caught It Girl, Cristina's eye too! Graphic tees are also fun to wear when the graphic is a word. Marisa's favorite graphic tee has a special meaning to it because it represents a part of her heritage. "My brother bought me this shirt when he went to Florence because he said that all the Italian men say "ciao Bella" when an American girl walks by!"--we love it! There is nothing like a cute graphic tee with images and words imprinted on them. Just ask Victoria and Allie with their graphic tee choices! Victoria absolutely loves her graphic tee from Zara sharing that, "The dolman shape of the tee with the tie front makes it dressy enough to pair up with a cute flowy skirt, or tone down for a night on the town with teal high waisted skinnies and black patent heels. Plus, the shirt gives off a mature vibe so you still look put together and not childish. The texture and colors are such a plus, too!"--we agree! Allie's graphic tee comes from an online company we hadn't even heard of called Necessary Clothing. Allie said, "They have really cute affordable stuff that's different from the stores!"--we love new store finds so we'll have to check it out! Our last favorite graphic tee style is sporting a famous person on your front. This has remained a popular fad and Serena just loves her Bob Dylan tank from Brandy Melville. She explained, "I love my Bob Dylan graphic from Brandy Melville! Not only am I a huge fan of John Galt graphics, but Bob Dylan is also one of my favorite artists of all time! I love this tank because I can wear it tucked into shorts in the summer or pair it with leggings and a light weight sweater when it's cooler out".

Are you a fan of graphic tees too? Where are your favorite places to shop for graphic tees?

It Girl Trend Report: Celebrity Style Crush


"Fashions fade, style is eternal".- Yves Saint Laurent

Usually, our styles are determined by the latest fashion trends seen on our favorite celebs. For example, Ali can always count on fashion inspiration from her style celeb crush, Rachel Zoe. We were curious what celebrity's style influenced our It Girls' wardrobe so this week they shared with us their celeb style crush. Like Karen, It Girl Avery's style celeb crush is Kourtney Kardashian. Her favorite style piece she is always on the lookout for from Kourtney Kardashian are her different, big stylish shades she always has on. For Marisa, Victoria, and Cristina their styles resemble a more classy and modern look similar to Sakura. Marisa has a huge style crush on Lauren Conrad "because she keeps it classy with solid and timeless pieces and always accessorizes to make it modern and dressy". Victoria loves to mix and match the personalities and character of what she's wearing to how she is feeling that morning, or tailored to something she'll be doing that day. Victoria refers to her style as eclectic meets boho hipster so for those reasons, Blake Lively is most aligned with her style. Cristina has an obsession with both the looks of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, but she identifies with Ashley Olsen's diverse, fashion forward style more. Allie opps for a more modern royalty look with her celeb style crush, Kate Middleton. Serena loves the classic, sophisticated look of a style icon: Audrey Hepburn. "I picked Audrey Hepburn for obvious reasons-she's classy, demure, beautiful, and she knew that being a woman was about more than looks and measurements".

Who is your celebrity style crush?! Leave us a comment sharing your style icon - we would love to hear!

It Girl Interns Trend Report: Statement Pieces


Be bold. Stand out. Make a statement. This week's It Girl Trend Report features our It Girls showing off their favorite statement pieces. A statement piece is unique to you; it could be a pop of color with your jeans, a bright handbag, a spunky nail polish design, or a piece of eclectic jewelry. A statement piece stands on its own. One of the best ways to make a statement is through the use of color in your wardrobe. Our It Girl Victoria shared, "I love mixing a bold color with an essential yet classic counterpart. It keeps symmetry within the outfit and is more aesthetically appealing and fashionable!" Whichever way you decide to make a statement this spring and summer, rock it!

What is your favorite statement piece? Show us on Instagram by hash-tagging #thesororitysecrets and #statementpiece.

*prices subject to change

Flower Power

Blazer: Skies Are Blue. Tee: Splendid.  Jeans: Rich & SkinnyBelt: Forever 21 (similar here).  Shoes: Steven by Steve Madden (similar here).  Nail Polish: Essie.

Nothing says "spring" quite like floral... or pastels, or lightweight blazers for that matter.  Just the color combo alone on this blazer was enough to make us feel giddy!  It makes a perfect match when paired with these Gladiola color jeans by Rich & Skinny.  The color in the jeans really brings out the pink hues in the floral pattern.  And of course, nail polish sometimes has a way of making the perfect accessory statement with the right outfit.  In this case, our favorite spring polish shade (Mint Candy Apple by Essie) compliments the entire ensemble rather nicely!  We can't wait to wear this outfit on a sunny spring day.

Graphic Tee

{On Ali} Tee: Urban Outfitters (similar here).  Shorts: Urban Outfitters.  Scarf: old, similar here.  Lipstick: Mac.  {On Sakura} Tee: H&M (similar here) {On Karen} Tee: Forever 21 (similar here). Jeans: J Brand (similar here).  Lipstick: Makeup Forever, Aqua Rouge.

We admit it-- if there's one item of clothing that we have loved since we were little, it would be the graphic tee.  Seriously, it doesn't go out of style!  And the vintage ones are even better.  Luckily, vintage-inspired graphic tees are everywhere now.  The soft and comfy tees are the best!  Our favorite places to get graphic tees are Urban Outfitters and Forever 21... they always have creative designs for a great price.

Dress it up, dress it downNo matter what style you're craving, graphic tees seem to always be fitting.  They're here to stay!   The best part about graphic tees?  Making a statement & showing off what you love... a band, your sorority, your favorite cartoon character.  The possibilities are endless.

Do you have a favorite graphic tee that you adore?

Tuxedo Casual

Top: Urban Outfitters.  Jeans: Express.  Accessories: Forever 21 (necklace here & similar bracelet here).  Shoes: Jessica Simpson.  Beanie: Urban Outfitters.  Nail Polish: Essie Mint Candy Apple.  Sunglasses: Ray Ban.

Throw on your fancy tuxedo pants!  We're seeing tuxedo pants everywhere now... and we're loving their casual denim reincarnation, as seen in these Express jeansNope, this look isn't just for the boys, and not just for black tie affairs.  These jeans feature an ankle length, perfect for showing off some snazzy high heels.  Since blue denim pairs nicely with black & white, we loved adding this acid wash denim shirt from Urban Outfitters.  Accessorize with some chunky gold accents for polish.  Ali added a beanie to the look since, well, we love how a hat completes any look!

Love tuxedo jeans?  Tell us what you think of this trend below!

Opposites Attract

Jacket: Urban Outfitters (similar here).  Shirt: Chloe K (similar here).  Jeans: H&M.  Lipgloss: Victoria's Secret.

Black & white is our go-to when we want to look polished.  It's chic, crisp, and looks great for any occasion.  Our TSS It Girl, Rachel, sure knows how to rock the look!  We love how she paired these basic staple pieces to create her ensemble.  The style is complete with hot pink lips (we love her Victoria's Secret lipgloss!) to add a dash of color.  When it comes to black & white, opposites sure do attract!

Free Spirit


Hat: Target (old, similar here).  Jean Jacket: Abercrombie & Fitch (old, similar here).  Tank Top: Alternative Apparel (similar here).  Skirt: Charlotte Russe.  Shoes: Steven by Steve Madden (old, similar here).  Necklace: J. Crew.  Lipgloss: Revlon.

Free, free falling.  A worn-in jean jacket can compliment many different looks, adding a casual layer to feminine pieces.  This jacket in particular, Ali has actually had since she was a freshman in college!  It's very loved, to say the least.  Like a favorite pair of jeans, you can't really go wrong with this denim staple.  We love pairing tan shoes with this black skirt, to play up the laid-back feel.  A pattern tank adds a bit of color, and the turquoise necklace adds a bright pop to the look.  Simple, natural makeup and hair top it all off.  This look has us feeling carefree, and ready to take on the day.

We have pretty sophisticated styles, but it's always nice every once in a while to add a little edginess to our wardrobe collection. Studs and spikes are the perfect embellishments to turn your fashion pieces into that edgy rockstar look that is trending this year. Whether it's a studded clutch, spiked moto jacket/vest, or a pair of killer spiked heels, you can't go wrong with this look! We like to pair studs and spikes with a feminine piece such as a simple dress, classic tee, or colored jeans to balance out the look.

Don't be afraid to be bold with your look!

Boho Leopard

Top: Forever 21 (similar here).  Jeans: J Brand.  Necklace: Forever 21 (similar here).  Bracelet: Chanel.  Hat: Grace Hats.

Leopard is one of our favorite neutrals.  Sure, it's a fun pattern, but it actually goes with just about everything!  Styling it with a colorful accessory and black denim is a chic way to wear the print.  Ali loves the bohemian feel, and this floppy hat adds boho personality to the outfit.  We added gold link chains to glam up the look.  Plus, the shirt and the necklace were both found at Forever 21... score with some affordable finds to create this look yourself!  Mixing inexpensive items with nice staple pieces, such as the jeans, makes it easy to try out new looks.
