My friend & I are going shopping tomorrow for sorority recruitment. She's going to a school in the SEC & me in the south, so it's basically cut throat ya know.
We're sticking to the basics, but as far as shoes go, we're having a hard time justifying spending around $200 for flats we may only wear once(like on Philanthropy or skit). She has a pair of Louboutins & my mom said she'd get me a pair or 2 for recruitment if I'd like. I know they're expensive, but I've come to love stilettos so I'd wear them beyond that.
Idk, we're just having a hard time justifying it. But at the same time, these shoes are "staples"
Yes, it seems ridiculous and no sororities don't judge based off of that. But when you're going to a school that has 1500+ girls going through recruitment, they find anything and everything to cut girls from lack of recs, grades, GPA to not being well presented. Bad impressions are always bad.
How much would you pay for shoes you'd only wear once or twice?

To be honest, if you are only going to wear them once, I would only pay 2 bucks for a pair of shoes. But like you said, if these are louboutins and you are going to wear them more than once then I think it's justifiable. But make sure you do wear them more than once.
The best thing you can do is to just be nice and outgoing, even if you are not. Being friendly will leave a good impression. Tell your friend to find something in common with the girls who she is trying to impress. Make a point of talking to the girls and engaging in conversation with them. If she is memorable, her chances of being chosen are higher.
I have never been in a sorority before, but this is much like networking works in the real world. And I have landed my job through networking.
She should do her research on the sorority and the school and be ready to talk about why she is a good fit for the sorotity. They will most likely have a code of values or something that they go by. This is pretty much just like a job interview, so dress the part. Don't wear a suit, but be presentable. You don't even necessarily have to wear louboutins, but wear some shoes that look clean and nice.
She should practice how she is going to talk about herself. This is key, it's like an interview so if she can handle all of that I think regardless of shoes, she will be fine!0
