For my entire collection of Mrs. International Photos, please visit my facebook page:
Here are a few photos and descriptions of what I wore with more of my repeats.
BEST PAGEANT LESSON: Repeat what you wear! These clothes are expensive. For pageants, you really need to buy your clothes (hopefully on sale) because almost everything should be tailored for a great fit. This requires a significant investment, so the best thing I learned is to go ahead and repeat everything! For the cost of each dress, it should be worn over and over as much as possible! Also, there is a side benefit that if you repeat your pageant wardrobe, you are more likely to stick to a reasonable diet (so you fit into said wardrobe!).
WHAT I WORE:
Morning, I repeated the white lace dress, see HERE
I had to change the necklaces because my Sabika necklace broke when I fell at the gas station (I have a nice little Harry Potter style scar to remind me of my destroyed Sabika necklace and my knees were still skinned when I competed for Mrs. International). So my necklaces were from Elena Maratos
For competition, I wore my purple evening gown, see description HERE
I changed the earrings to the AB earrings in this photo (when the large stone is flipped over, it is covered in tiny AB crystals).
After the pageant, I repeated my state pageant on stage interview dress, see description HERE
ENJOY THE PHOTOS!
