Fashion, Miss Royalty Journey

Hippie Chick

Hippie Chick
So… I’m jumping in head first and participating in the Miss Royalty pageant. While I’m incredibly nervous, I’m also very excited to see what it brings. These are going to be a busy next few months. While this is the second pageant I will have done, that doesn’t make it less of an adventure.

To officially start my journey, I decided to make a post to show my audition outfit. We were given the theme of “hippie chic.” Honestly, this was a challenge for me. As my friends will tell you, I have a pretty tailored, straight-laced and elegant personal style. Lots of jackets, gowns, lace dresses and suits. On the rare occasion I might wear skinny jeans. But I must emphasize the word rare. Having to style something relaxed, free-spirited and casual is stepping outside the box for me. I am happy, however, with the end result. It took many days, but was of course worth the effort since I’m now Miss Royalty Romania. Even if I had not been selected from the audition, the experience would have been 100% worth it because I had the chance to practice the fundamentals of a styling genre.

Wish me luck!

In the Garden of Memory

Lately I have been recounting many family memories with my friends and loved ones. For me, the garden represents every moment of life; the flowers and blooming trees are positive moments and the weeds are the moments we’d rather not remember. It has been difficult lately thinking about my husband’s grandfather being sick and me being on the other side of the world from them. But, then I am grateful during this time to have wonderful friends who are able to comfort me and make me feel whole. I hope you will take a look at this gown from Rayne, another great item for Penumbra Fashion Week, which ends after tomorrow.
