Want to add a little spice to your wardrobe? Try something new? Well what better way to do it than with a pair of knee high socks or a pair of funky printed pants!
Here are a few ideas of what outfits you can create with these items.
Here my friend Hannah has on a pair of loose fitting printed pants, paired with a black belt, a simple black t-shirt, and flats. So trendy! And yet so simple!
Above I am wearing knee high socks paired a pair of black panty hoes, a tight long sleeved dress, a black cardigan, and a chunky black necklace, and black pointed flats.
Here’s another example of something you can do with knee high socks.
I paired the same black knee highs, black tights, and black cardigan but instead underneath I wore a black tight skirt and a loose tank top. For my shoes I chose black combat boots. And of course, I ALWAYS accessorize.
So give it a try! You really can’t go wrong!
We had a wonderful first meeting for FMDS, a lot of fashionable ladies came out to talk fashion.
Friday was Virginia Tech’s Gobblerfest, a type of fair where all the organizations introduce themselves to students. We had an awesome turnout, and here are some pictures of our lovely ladies! For anyone who attends Virginia Tech, our first general body meeting will be Monday the 17th at 7pm at the Duck Pond!
Last week I attended the April market weekend at AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia with two other members of FMDS, Laura McCarthy and Caitlin Jones. We volunteered with the Fashion Office from Wednesday-Saturday. We also worked with four other fashion students from Auburn, University of Georgia, Florida State University, and University of Alabama.
Throughout the weekend, we helped two freelance fashion show coordinators go around the entire mart and pick out samples for the big Friday night fashion show for buyers. We tagged sample garments and recorded them on paper as well as taking pictures. When it came time to return everything we knew all that we had to do. We also helped change the models during the two daily shows and the big Friday show.

Amazing 14 karat jewelry from Joey Showroom that we used in the show. Pieces of this jewelry were even used in Beyonce’s “Run The World” video.

In preparation for Gala, we dug up some vintage photos from FMDS’s first years as an organization. As you may be able to tell by the oversized blouses and remarkably large hair, these are circa the 1980s. Clearly, there are some major differences from then and now — dues were only $10 — but it certainly seems like they had just as much fun!
