Where in the World Have The Babes Been?? Part 2

The past few months have been incredibly busy for The Babes! Read on to see what they’ve been up to!

Sarah Ribble

Sarah at her first interview in NYC!

Sarah: Life has been crazy since graduation in May! I began working as a wedding consultant at David’s Bridal right after school was over. That was a fun and interesting job! Plus, I got to try on lots of pretty dresses. 🙂 The whole time I was working there though, I was constantly applying for fashion design jobs in New York. I had decided towards the end of the school year that I wanted to move to New York City with a couple of my best friends from school! Finally, in June I got an interview for an assistant designer position at a swimwear company in New York! The following week I came to the city to interview for the position and less than a week after that I had accepted it! I had very little time to get myself to NYC more permanently so I ended up staying with a family friend in New Jersey for several weeks. In July my two roommates, Shannon & Derek, and I moved into our new apartment in the Bronx! It’s huge and beautiful and I can’t wait to share it with you! Now, I’m finally getting settled into my new life in NYC and I couldn’t be happier! 🙂

Emily at the X-Ambassadors Concert!

Emily: My summer has turned out completely different then I thought it would but it’s been amazing! I started shooting for the Suicide Girls which is basically my dream job, and I’ve met some amazing people through it so far! I also recently started working as a jewelry apprentice at a major jewelry store’s repair shop. Throughout school I focused on trying to get a full time job working as an entry level fashion photographer or assistant in a larger studio but I decided to take this amazing job that gives me time and money to focus on my personal photography business on the side, while still doing something I love. I feel so welcomed by everyone I work with and I’m happy to be a part of such a fantastic team. I’ve been busy with a lot of other fun things this summer! I’ve been to a few concerts and have seen some of my favorite bands: X-Ambassadors, Matt & Kim, Glass Animals, and Bear Hands were all so amazing to see live! The next year is going to be insane with my goal of moving to the pacific northwest by next fall! Right now I’m embracing change and I’m so excited for whats to come!

Thrift Store Finds

Check out what treasures The Babes found on their latest trip to the thrift store!

Navy and White Striped Crop Top

Recently, I have fallen in love with stripes. I found this little tshirt for $3.99 and I just love how adorable it is. It’s a thick, but super soft material. The neckline is my favorite part! I usually don’t like high necklines on me but I love how wide it is, with the navy trim. The shirt is a size small but I love that it works as a fitted crop top on me!

Cream Open-Knit Fuzzy Sweater

I’m obsessed with the fuzzy sweater trend right now. I spotted this sweater jacket and instantly fell in love. It’s so fluffy and fun! It is an open knit, but it’s still pretty warm. The material is slightly itchy but it didn’t really bother me and I got used to it. It has large white buttons on the cuffs and down the front, but it wouldn’t fit me buttoned, which it totally fine because I wouldn’t really want to button it ever! The sleeves and everywhere else fit like a glove! I couldn’t pass this up since it was only $3.99!

Leopard Print Coat

This reversible leopard print coat is absolutely perfect. I paid $3.99 for it! It’s black on the inside, but can be worn the other way. I will probably never wear it with the leopard on the inside because I love how it looks on the outside! It’s soft and warm and a little oversized so I can layer a lot underneath. It’s the perfect coat for that time of year when it’s chilly but it warms up in the afternoon! It’s perfect for right now, but it’s not something I would wear when it’s below freezing.

Floral Printed Wrap-Front Blouse & Cole Haan Pumps

Floral Printed Wrap-Front Blouse & Cole Haan Pumps

The color and print of this top were too pretty for me to pass up! It has a lovely wrap-front closure and kimono sleeves. It’s also very silky which makes it comfortable and luxurious to the touch. I snagged this top for just $3.99!

These Cole Haan pumps were a steal for $19.99! They even came in the original box with the $248 price tag intact! They are black leather with a black patent leather toe and about a 2.5 inch heel. They fit like a dream and are comfortable enough to wear all day! I’d been looking for a new pair of black pumps and just happened to stumble upon these! It was meant to be!

Ann Taylor Cropped Cardigan with Satin Trim

Ann Taylor Cropped Cardigan with Satin Trim

Cropped jackets are a huge trend for this Spring so I had to have this Ann Taylor cardigan. It’s a very heavy knit fabric with a delicate satin trim in a lovely mauve color. This piece was just $3.99 and I can’t wait to incorporate it into my Spring wardrobe!

Over-the-Knee Black Suede Boots

Over-the-Knee Black Suede Boots

Emily found these boots and I got so excited when she showed them to me! I’d been searching for a pair of over-the-knee boots, but I have wide calves so I was having a hard time finding a pair that actually fit me. These boots are perfect because they have an inseam zipper, but they also have adjustable laces on the back of the calf so that the fit can be customized. And they even have cute little tassels! I’m a sucker for tassels!
