What It’s Like to Be in a Sorority, As Told By Disney Characters


It’s the start of rush!!

Everything is going great, until you get cut by your top choice.

But you push on…

And no worries, in the end you got a bid!

Too bad the girl next to you is crying over hers. Oh well.

You find the best big sister in the world.

And you get to go to mixers with fraternities

And get to show off your sick dance moves in front of your sisters

But then you find out your so-called sister likes the same guy as you

And it goes a little sour that night at the party…

And you wake up feeling like an idiot.

To make matters worse, you get called in by standards about your behavior the night before.

But, it’s fine because next year you get to live in the sorority house – good thing you found a roommate!

'Keep on Shining' This Fall with Miss Me


This post is brought to you by Miss Me, however opinions are my own.

It’s nice to know when you share similar beliefs with a brand you love and that’s how I felt when I read the Miss Me manifesto.

I am unique. Strong. Always looking forward, never back. Not willing to sit back and watch things pass, but motivated to go out and make it better. I am not a follower, a mere resident of the world; I am a girl who will go out and change it. I know I can do anything. I’ll keep on shining, no matter what.

This is the kind of thing you want to your clothing to help you communicate with the world, isn’t it? As collegiettes, we are these things: unique, motivated, leaders, and makers of change. We are modern women who deserve a brand and a wardrobe that speaks to this. I feel like Miss Me’s unique embellishments and intricate designs (you can get a look at some of their clothes from this post) really embody this.

The brand is launching their Fall line (and who doesn’t love shopping for fall clothes? It’s my favorite fashion season) and reminding shoppers to “Keep on Shining." You’ll see in the video sneak peak below, but some of those jackets — we’re already salivating. Now we just need the temperature to drop a bit to justify them!
