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!

Where in the World have The Babes Been?

Emily with one of her prints hanging up in the Canzani Gallery for SHOW: The 136th Annual Student Exhibition

Emily: The past few weeks have been insane. The last week of school I was very busy getting all of my projects done. I had my final class with a few of my friends and we all enjoyed the beautiful weather outside on campus. We all hung out for the rest of the evening, it was the perfect end to school. The weekend after I helped out backstage with all my best friends at the CCAD Fashion Show. I felt like a parent getting all emotional from seeing how much my friends have grown. I found out that night that one of my photographs was chosen to be printed and framed and hung up in the Photo Department hallway for the next year. They choose 3 student photos every year! I also found out that was one my prints (shown above) was hung up really big in the student exhibition. I took my parents to see if after graduation and I was surprised to find out that I actually have 3 different large prints throughout the gallery! Graduation was beautiful and emotional and it happened so fast, I definitely didn’t cry as much as I thought I would. Since graduation I have tried to get into a healthy morning routine by getting up early every morning to workout. i’ve been applying to a ton of jobs including product photographers, jewelry apprenticeships, retouching, and assisting. I’m going to be staying in Columbus for a while unless I get offered something else. I’m hopefully going to be visiting a few places this summer that I’m thinking about moving to eventually and I have some super exciting photoshoots happening soon! Stay tuned!

Sarah after receiving the Outstanding Senior Award

Sarah after receiving the Outstanding Senior Award

Sarah: The past couple of weeks have been a crazy blur! As a fashion major I spent the last 4 years prepping for the senior fashion show so it’s hard to believe that it’s over already. The show was incredibly fun! I couldn’t think of a better way to end my college career than displaying my work in that way and being able to celebrate all of our accomplishments with my peers. I think the highlight of my time at CCAD was when I was chosen as the Easton Town Center Fashion Award recipient! I was able to rein in the tears during the fashion show, but I expected to cry throughout the entire graduation ceremony the next day. However, when I arrived at commencement on Saturday I was much more joyful than sad. Yes, I am incredibly sad to be leaving CCAD, which has been my home for the past four years, but I know that it isn’t really goodbye. The people of CCAD are what make it so special and the bonds that I’ve forged there will last forever. I’m planning to stay in Columbus until July when I will be moving to New York to pursue my dream of becoming a lingerie or textile designer. Wish me luck!

Thrift Store Finds

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


Oversized purple button up with moon and star print

Emily: I am a huge space enthusiast. I love astronomy and all things moon and stars. I found this purple oversized button up and had to have it. It is so lightweight and comfy, it will be perfect for the summer! I’m definitely feeling the 90’s fashion vibes this summer.


boxy chiffon printed button up

Emily: This light weight chiffon top is boxy and oversized and I also love it because of the hypnotizing print! It will be great for work tucked into some black loose pants and a blazer, or with a pair of jeans or shorts!


Ralph Lauren stretchy off the shoulder crop top

Emily: I already mentioned I’m channeling my inner child recently and this top says it all. It’s Ralph Lauren so it was a total bargain at $3.99. It looks adorable with high waisted jeans and it definitely shows off my figure. The cotton material is super stretchy and will be very cool once it starts getting hot.


Vintage 100% silk jacket with metallic gold feather print

Emily: This navy silk jacket is one of my most beautiful jacket finds. The outside is 100% silk and is printed with metallic gold feathers. It zips and has these shiny gold buttons to finish it off. It’s super comfy and cool and will be perfect for cool nights and for the fall!


Red & white gingham tank top

Sarah: Americana prints are all the rage this spring! I can’t wait to incorporate this piece into a vintage or nautically inspired outfit!


Vera Wang printed dress

Sarah: I’m a big fan of tea length dresses and this one has a very unique hemline. I also love print and pattern mixing so I was immediately drawn to this dress! I plan to style this piece with a skinny belt and denim jacket.


Coldwater Creek t-shirt

Sarah: This t-shirt was brand new! It still had the original tags! This navy blue top is so soft and comfy, but features lovely feather motifs along the neckline that dress it up a bit.


St. John’s Bay light weight jacket

Sarah: This light weight jacket is perfect for this time of year! It’s a lovely shade of blue and the style and cut are very flattering. For only $3.99 this jacket was a steal!


Converse striped top

Sarah: This cotton top is perfect for spring. The vertical stripe print is lovely and the neckline ties are completely adjustable. I’m actually wearing this top today along with the blue jacket featured above!


Gap tank top

Sarah: I was drawn to the lovely color of this top, but I purchased it because of how comfortable it was and how well it fit. I also love the peter pan collar and feel that this could fit into the Americana category as well!


Vintage floral print pleated skirt

Sarah: I am so excited about this skirt! It is tea length (my favorite skirt length!) and it is floral print (my favorite print!). It also feature lovely pleats along the hips that flare out into larger pleats at the bottom of the skirt. I plan to wear this skirt with a simple navy blue top and denim jacket!



It’s finally warming up in Columbus! The Babes are enjoying today’s weather in style!
