Today's post is for all you Greek gals out there. I know so many of my readers are in a sorority or academic fraternity, so today I'm sharing my favorite websites to buy letters from or any apparel associated with Greek organizations. For the longest time, I never knew where I could hunt down the cutest sorority wear, but after two semesters of searching, I feel like I have a good grasp on shopping Greek orgs. Today, I'm mapping out the items that I always seem to grab for in my closet.
Whenever I buy sorority stuff, I always ask myself if I can get longterm wear out of it. It's so easy to fall into the habit of purchasing every tee shirt offered to you by your sorority. The first thing you need to know is that you never have to purchase every shirt, nor should you. If we did that, we'd be paying equal dues in just shirts, and let's face it -- sororities are already expensive as it is. I invest in a few pairs of versatile letters and several sweatshirts. I love a good laptop sticker too, but other than that, I don't like to blow my library paycheck on ADPi apparel.
Sherpa Pullover -- My sherpa pullover is my most worn ADPi item. It's from Red Elephant Clothing and it's just perfect. I've seen plenty with monograms on them, but never any with Greek letters. These come in a few different colors too so you can have the sherpa correspond with your sororities colors. I chose the light blue one with a navy monogram to match ADPi national colors. Since wearing it to a few chapter meetings, I've received so many compliments on it! If you want one, you can use my code "dailydose15" for 15% off. Size up if you plan on purchasing one!
Wooly Threads Pullover -- These are widely popular across the board. These mock turtleneck pullovers are classic and so comfortable. They are a little pricey but are well worth the money. I love how they grey matches everything I wear. I can always throw it on, no matter the season. Whether I'm in the library in the Wintertime or on the beach at night during the Summer, my Wooly Threads sweatshirt is perfect for any weather and very easy to layer. Size up if you plan on purchasing one!
Corded Sweatshirt -- These are relatively new to Greek wear but they took the Panhellenic world by storm this past Fall. These thick, corded sweatshirts are so popular that around December, they were virtually impossible to find -- every site was backordered for months. Although it's still tough to find them sold individually, I found this Etsy shop that sells them. If you want you can place a chapter wide order here using Adam Block designs.
Lilly Pulitzer Letters -- If you want a great pair of Lilly Pulitzer embroidered letters, Letters by Alex is the place to go. Alex does letters other than greek ones too. I have a JMU sweatshirt and an ADPi one. Her shop has dozens of Lilly prints to choose from, and most of them are really recent too. Every single time I wear my letters I get compliments. I wore them to present at another sororities chapter last weekend and as I was walking out three girls asked me where I got them from. You can shop her Etsy here!
Unique Tees -- I buy the JMU ADPi chapter tee shirts every now and then, but I really love the fun designs that are on South by Sea. This site is a bulk order site where shirt orders are only open for a limited amount of time, but if you catch the order form in time, you can snag some great tee shirts. I have managed to get a couple of Christmas and Summer vacation themed tees here that I can't find anywhere else.
