From your dream formal dress, designer shoes, and fine jewelry for your next beauty pageant, prom, or other special event, they’ve got it. With all of the pageant preparation to get to Miss Jr. Teen United States, having awesome sponsors makes it just that much easier and a lot more fun!

When we got the announcement about our 1st official titleholder photoshoot, I was super excited. It’s so much fun to get all ‘glam’ and work with the photographers and creative directors to get the right look. The official hair and make up team sets up a little salon and gets right to it, making us all glamorous and amazing. But, one of the huge stars of any photoshoot is THE perfect gown! Thank goodness for Everything For Pageants for making sure my gowns are magical and perfect. I worked closely with the staff, one-on-one. From the hundreds and hundreds of dresses, I was able to play dress up for hours and try on as many as I could. Fun, fun, FUN! They even had designer shoes and the best fine jewelry to complete the look.

We had great fun searching through hundreds of amazing gowns!

As my wardrobe sponsor, Everything For Pageants was also really helpful in finding me a really spectacular evening gown to wear at the Miss Jr. Teen United States national competition in July. I just can’t wait to show you my gown, get up on the stage, and work hard to make Illinois proud. Look for me out and about in Washington, DC in another fun and fashion forward dress sponsored by Everything For Pageants too!

So, whether you are looking for the perfect prom dress, your next pageant gown, or special event dress; remember how awesome and fun it was for me to work with them. You can experience being treated like a celebrity too. Big, huge thanks to the entire staff, especially Mrs. Kimberly Holliday Triani.

Please show some love with a retweet!

Disclosure: I was not compensated for my opinion or views, I just think Everything For Pageants is pretty cool and wanted to share with you too. Happy Shopping. 🙂


Miss Teen and Jr. Teen Illinois United States Maashionistas Visit Small Business Maash Boutique

Hi everyone and thanks for dropping by my blog. Saturday was very busy. It started out with competing in the IHSA Organizational Contest – Performing Arts held at Whitney Young High School. Once my choir, from ChiArts High School of Performing Arts, finished our performance, I was whisked away for an appearance. My favorite part of the day, by far, was visiting Maash Boutique.

I met with my beautiful sister queen Arnela, director Derrick Lee (who just happens to be the best director ever), and amazing small business owner Sheyla Jarosz to get a sneak peek at some exciting new arrivals. As an official sponsor of the Miss Illinois United States Organization, you’ll see us wearing Maash Boutique fashions at appearances throughout our reign. We are the newest Mashionistas of 2015, how cool is that!

The first thing I noticed when I walked through the door was a comfy sofa and the fun feel of the place. I immediately felt welcomed and at home. The one-on-one service is definitely a plus at a local, small boutique like Maash. Okay so I’m a teen, so you know what came next. Playing dress up, that’s what!! I tried on as much as I could. I was so happy to be able to see some of the fashions we will get to wear this year.

Follow Maash Boutique on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with the Mashionistas.

It’s going to be an honor being sponsored by Maash Boutique and lots of fun too! You should stop by and check out the spring and summer fashions, seriously. Personally, I loved the rompers and can’t wait for the first hot day so that I can wear my new one.

What’s that thing in your closet that you’re dying to wear this summer?

That’s all for now, support small businesses and happy blogging!

Love, Ciara
