Sorority Initiation with mystylelab

So this coming Saturday my sorority has our second initiation for all of our new members from Spring Rush!  Initiation is such a special time & something that I really look forward to.  You may know that for most most sororities you must wear a white (or cream) dress for initiation.  For my sorority they prefer something that covers the shoulders (if yours doesn't you can always wear a cardigan!), & requires that it be as close to knee length as possible; basically they are looking for tasteful dresses for this special occasion.  Additionally we are required to wear closed toe nude shoes, I've heard that for some sororities that have to wear white shoes, but I am so glad we do nude because I love the way a good nude shoe looks! 

I know that this time of year is quite popular for sorority initiations & that many girls are searching for the perfect white dress to wear to theirs.  When looking for your initiation dress you absolutely must head to Macy's mystylelab!  I am loving what mystylelab has been bringing in for this season, they are stocked with all the best brands (don't forget about their Macy's Campus Tour, #macyscampustour, a campaign dedicated to keeping the hottest brands on their shelves), and there is a great selection of white/cream dresses to choose from.  I was looking on their website the other day & decided to see what dresses they had available that would work for initiation, & found several that I just love.  Also they have a ton of nude pumps if that is what you are pairing with your dress.  Here are my favorites that you have to check out when you head over to the mystylelab.

Dresses: Trixxi  /  Bar III  /  Ruby Rox  /  Guess
Shoes: Jessica Simpson  /  Rampage  /  Madden Girl

While I love them all, my absolute favorite would definitely have to be this one by Ruby Rox.  I love the lace at the top & the way the contrasting textures on the top & bottom look.  The best part about all of these picks is that they are not just for a sorority initiation, little white dresses are always big for spring & summer, & can be worn to a variety of occasions throughout the seasons.  You can wear any of these dresses dressed up or in a more casual fashion depending on how you accessorize, which will help you to get even more wear out of it!  I love how Kate Upton styled her little white dress last week at the Express Fashion Show in Miami.

This is a great example of a more casual way to wear a little white dress, & to show just how versatile of a piece it is.  So whether you're in the market for a new dress for initiation or just looking to add a white dress to your wardrobe Macy's mystylelab is your place to go!

Before you head to Macy's though don't forget about their Spin & Win Sweepstakes, which is a part of their Macy's Campus Tour (#macyscampustour), that will be taking place until March 30th!   For students (aka my fellow sorority girls!) log into the Macy’s App on your phone to spin a virtual spin wheel for a chance to win up to $500 in gift cards.  If having the chance to win it big isn't cool enough all participants will automatically receive a 20% coupon just for playing, which can go a long way when purchasing everything you will need for initiation.  Simply download he Macy's App & click on the link for the Spin & Win Instant Game.  [Bonus: You can play up to five times a day!]

Which of these white dresses is your favorite?  Also are you a in a sorority?  If so are you a alumnae, current, or new member?  Let me know below!

*I am participating in the "Macy's Campus Tour" blog campaign.  I received a Macy's gift card to facilitate my posts, however all opinions are my own.


  1. I would choose Bar III. I'm not in one because I'm from England but it's such a lovely idea! xo

  2. Finding a tasteful white dress for initiation can be so hard! I'm definitely going to check out Macy's!

  3. I love the "Guess" dress from Macy's!

    HCXO :)

  4. Being in a sorority myself, I find this extremely helpful! Our initiation isn't until the fall, but I can now start looking for dresses. Thanks for this!
