Review:: SRE Design Lilly Pulitzer Watercolor

 Saturday, March 9, 2013

One of my biggest regrets is that I never learned how to paint. I love to craft and can do everything from sewing to modge-podge masterpieces but I am really not that great a painter. This was especially obvious when all my sorority sisters were coming up with intricate and beautiful designs for their littles and I was just doing stripes and polka dots. 

Thats precisely why I was so excited to find SREdesign. The etsy store just opened and sells the prettiest watercolor prints. I also love her custom painted wood letters!

Custom painting Lilly prints is very labor intensive and because of the hard work I think that SRE's prices are very well priced. Her lilly prints are 9x12 which is a great size and easy to get framed.

I chose the Pi Beta Phi Lilly Print and am so happy with how it came out!

Its so pretty! I love how detailed the print is and the angel is just perfect.

SREdesign was so easy to work with and I can see myself picking out so more lilly prints from them in the future. They are so vibrant and feminine- just like the original lilly prints.

These prints are so much cooler than buying a poster and when I decorate my house next year I am thinking about putting these in my bedroom or closets. 

Which SRE design is your favorite? What is your favorite lilly print that you would like to see watercolored?


Sponsor:: Eastern Shore Clothing Company

 Thursday, March 7, 2013

I am so sick of this cold weather! Why cant we just skip winter and go from fall directly to spring and then summer? Even in the winter, I try to keep my wardrobe bright and sunny in order to make myself feel better about the dreary climate.

I recently discovered Eastern Shore Clothing Company and I love that their mission is to always "maintain a little bit of summer." The cute little crab as their logo makes me want to go to the beach! 

Right now Eastern Clothing company only offers three styles, the Bethany top, the Classic Pique Polo and Chesapeake Top. The styles are all classic and I can see myself wearing the bethany top with my lilly's this spring.

I find the prices to be so affordable, especially for the silky cotton fabric!

The pique polo is comparable to vineyard vines and Jcrew and personally I adore the crab logo. 

What do you think of Eastern Shore? 


Review:: Grace and Lace Sorority Socks

 Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Hello ladies! As I said on Sunday, these past couple weeks have been crazy for me. I just had my big/little week and I pampered and spoiled my little as much as I could. I tried to find everything with our sorority letters but was surprised to find how hard it was to find quality sorority products. 

I went through tons of greek websites and stores trying to find items that I knew she would love. I found Grace & Lace Co on etsy and fell in love with their sorority legwarmers.

They are just so cute! I definitely think the trend to wear knee highs and legwarmers is one that will stay. I mean the high socks are not only cute but so comfortable and I love that with Grace and Lace's pair you can see the sorority letters right above my boots!

I got the cream pair with my favorite letters. I love the ruffle at the top and the very stretchy cable knit material. The Grace and Lace socks are very high quality and are not the average sorority knee highs. They are fashionable yet very feminine and I can see these becoming very big within my sorority.

I would definitely recommend Grace and Lace for any sorority girl who wants to tastefully show their pride! If you are not in a sorority dont fret! Grace and Lace sells so many different boot socks and leg warmers. 

Im loving the Miss Molly leg warmers!

I just wish I went to University of Texas because the longhorn socks are divine!

What pair of Grace and Lace socks are your favorite? Do you wear socks underneath your boots?


Review: YT Yours Truly Gameday Dress

 Sunday, March 3, 2013

Hello lovelies. I am sorry for the brief hiatus on Preppy Student. I had midterms then Presidents day break and then big little week! So its been non-stop fun and work. 

Although it is winter (and actually snowing today!) I am always looking for new dresses to add to my collection. I go to a college in which we wear dresses nonstop to classes, formals or even to a football game! I know that at many large schools football games are school-wide events and the fans and students go crazy trying to find the perfect outfit to wear to the game. 

I love the style of most game day clothing and one of my favorite stores that offers a large selection of dresses, tops, and bottoms is Yours Truly or YT Clothing. Yours Truly is a company that started because the creator's daughter was in search of the best game day dress. Her idea was to create a "go-to" dress that could easily be accessorized and worn to many different events. 

This season I am obsessed with chevrons and I just love YT's Leigh and Mary Merry dresses.

I found my favorite new dress called "The Frances Dress."

The Frances dress is just so simple and elegant! I got mine in the plum shade but the dress comes in ten different shades. The razorback detailing is so effortless chic and the dress hits me at a really good length. 

The material is so high quality. I can tell that it will last! I cant wait to wear this dress with cardigans and tights in the winter and long necklaces and cowboy boots in the spring! The simple shape and purple color works for every season. 

I will be hosting a giveaway for YT Clothing very shortly so keep posted! What is your favorite item from Yours Truly clothing?
