Last night I attended my first ever pageant, Miss Teenage Canada! I took along my friend Eleni (a fellow fashion blogger for Bijuleni) and prepared for a night of bikinis, gowns and on-the-spot grilling – and by grilling I kind of wish I meant hamburgers, but I really mean when the 13-19 year old girls get asked a random question they have to answer and be judged about in front of hundreds of people. Yikes.
It was definitely an interesting experience. I used to watch pageants on tv with my mom, sister and a bowl of popcorn but this was my first time getting dressed up and seeing it live. I’ll admit, I thought it was pretty cool. Although, I’d never want to be in a pageant myself – too much smiling and posing and worrying about your every move.
For the occasion I went with a brand new Topshop dress in ‘peach’ that I absolutely could not resist buying the other day. Yes, I told myself I was only going to look at the sale items but as if that ever works out anyways. I kept the jewellery simple, only wearing my Abigail Spike Ring from Mizdragonfly. I carried a vintage handbag that conveniently fits my fabulous camera and wore a pair of pointed Chanel slingbacks.
Congratulations to the new Miss Teenage Canada! Hope it’s everything you wished for.
