Alpha Love

I was completely wrong last week when I said that Alpha Omicron Pi was out of the running for a Lilly Pulitzer sorority print. I was thrown off by a Facebook post with the current lead and thought the voting had ended. I'm very excited that AOII is part of the 2012 "Print Class" along with Alpha Xi Delta, Pi Beta Phi, Phi Mu and Sigma Kappa. Finally, this Greek alum can wear something to show some AOII pride besides a t-shirt at the gym!

circa 2005

Taking a trip down sorority memory lane... we would wear letter shirts over button downs with the collar popped (and in my case too much bronzer). I'm guessing this is no longer a trend... and that my "sisters" will yell at me for posting this. Unfortunately, the majority of photos in my archives are not Vineyard Loveknots appropriate. I do love to randomly email those old embarrassing photos to my friends to brighten their work day.

Anyway, I still have plenty of AOII t-shirts that I wear to bed, workout and when I'm lounging around. One of my responsibilities as New Member Educator was to organize bid day goodies including this Juicy Couture-inspired zip-up. Still proud of it.

I can't wait to see the new print! Lilly Fashion Director Janie Schoenborn announced the winners with Kappa Kappa Gamma at her alma mater, Rollins, via Facebook and referred to college as "your first 4 years of vacation." So... when is the next 4? Retirement?!
