The Diary of a Royal

The Diary of a Royal
While working on my outfit for the next Miss Royalty challenge, I realized that I never blogged the outfit I put together for our contestants meeting. It was the first time that most of us had been in the same room together. We were asked to style with the theme of “Princess Diaries 2” in mind. It’s been a while since I saw the film and unfortunately I couldn’t find it on Netflix. I really need to watch both again as I loved them when I was younger and read most of the book series. What I remember most from “Princess Diaries 2” were the parties. I was particularly drawn to an outdoor party, especially after I saw the venue for our meeting and how it had an open ceiling, large glass windows and vines hanging from the walls. It seemed perfect to style particularly for a garden tea party.

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!

Dress: GizzA – Cara Dress

Don’t forget to play the Pixicat machine! Yet again, she has not disappointed with the rare item available, and I think you will like all the cute snow globes which you will receive as the commons prizes.
