One of the many perks of becoming an International titleholder is a fabulous wardrobe sponsored by the Competitive Image! This was my third trip to Dothan, Alabama, home of the Competitive Image, within a year, so it is becoming very familiar, and one of my favorite places!! I was so excited to see everyone- Joey, Clay, Terri, and the rest of the Competitive Image crew. Terri helped me refill my Clay Spann cosmetics collection which I was running low on, and Joey helped me pick some beautiful wardrobe pieces that I will wear at Nationals this year!
Sherri Hill was there and it was great to meet her- she was as fabulous as the gowns she designs! Of course, seeing my wonderful Director, Mary Richardson, was a highlight; she is like a second mom to me and I just love getting together with her!
After my shopping extravaganza, my mom and I visited with current teen and Miss contestants. I met Avery, Miss Teen South Carolina International, Ashley, Miss Alabama International, and Dawn, Mrs. Pennsylvania International. I also got a chance to catch up Megan, Miss Teen Southeast International, and Margo, Miss Teen Maryland International. Finally, I had the pleasure of meeting a former titleholder, Patty, Mrs. South Carolina 2008.
Although our appointment was at 1:30pm, we had so much fun socializing with everyone that we didn’t leave until almost 8 o’clock at night!
