In our hometown of Fayetteville, AR, everyone is in full on graduation mode. The University of Arkansas just held its ceremonies this past weekend, and Fayetteville High School students are graduating this Thursday. Several of our Riffraff girls are graduating this year, so we want to spotlight their past achievements and bright futures! Read about Sarah and Leah, who just graduated from the University, and check out their outfits for inspiration for your graduation and/or parties!!!
Sarah Sabatino worked at Riffraff as a shop-girl. She is originally from Edmond, Oklahoma, but came to school at the University of Arkansas to major in Apparel Studies. She is pursuing a career in apparel by working at Nordstrom Northpark Center in Dallas, TX! Her dream job is to eventually be a buyer for Nordstrom. What she’ll miss most about college are the incredible friendships she’s made and all the wonderful experiences she has had! “I could never narrow it down to one favorite college memory, there have been too many great moments that I will always remember!!” She was very involved in her sorority, Pi Beta Phi, serving as chapter president her senior year. Arkansas Greek Life awarded her 2013 Greek President of the Year. Sarah was also involved in the Apparel Studies Student Association. She could watch Harry Potter on repeat and lives on coffee (which she claims is definitely a food group). Though we’re sad to see Sarah go, we can’t wait to see what she does in the future!!!
Sarah is wearing a coral dress and turquoise necklace from Riffraff. These brights are perfect for a graduation party, classy but bold! Find similar looks at http://www.shopriffraff.com
Leah Nichols also worked as a Riffraff shop-girl, and just recently became our full-time Customer Service Manager/PR Director! Leah is from Nashville, Arkansas and came to the University of Arkansas to study Advertising and Public Relations. Leah graduated with an AD/PR degree, minor in General Business, and concentration in French…go girl! She admits to being cliche, but will says what she’ll miss the most about college are her friends. She was a member of Delta Delta Delta and served as Panhellenic President. Leah was recently named Greek Woman of the Year! Leah’s favorite movie is The Holiday, and she’s obsessed with Chick-fil-a chicken minis and fountain cherry coke…oh and an occasional snickerdoodle. Her life quote is “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge, that someday, someone might do the same for you.”
Leah looks casual but cute in a cobalt blue shirt-dress from Riffraff. This could easily be dressed up or down for a variety of graduation events. Find similar looks at http://www.shopriffraff.com
