How amazing is this?! The Pageant Planet chose my gown as a HIT and even did an article on my time at International Junior Miss! The evening gown portion of a pageant is the time when you can show your personal fashion style, your ability to choose a gown that fits you well and looks great on you. It’s also important to choose a style that is age appropriate and suited to the system you are competing in.
This was actually the 2nd time I wore my custom Sherri Hill ball gown in this competition. I always loved when it was time to choose my gown. It is my favorite parts of preparation. I choose this particular gown because it was different than most, and it stuck out than most. When I put it on for the first time I felt like a princess after that there was no turning back from this gown.
There was this talk that I shouldn’t wear a ball gown because it seemed to “teeny” or it didn’t show my shape. Well, the low cut neckline of this dress in conjunction with the high slit up the middle displayed my miss look but with a classy twist, with the beaded corset with the IJM blue color. To top off the dress, I had custom earrings made by Lasting Impressions. They were just the perfect fit since my hair was up, and it didn’t take away from the gown. I also had a lot of people saying are you going to wear that same dress again because you made first runner up, and it’s in photos. It didn’t matter to me because I have this theory; it does not matter how many times you wear the gown, it's how confident you feel in it.
