Where�s your sash?
I only wear my sash for official pageant appearances that are approved by the Miss Illinois USA headquarters. It�s usually for charities, special events or something related to kids.
I like your outfit.
It�s actually all Guess. Guess is an old-time fave. In high school, I was obsessed with their jeans. But I have to admit, it�s not where I regularly shop. I just happened to wander into Guess recently at a suburban mall and I fell in love with this outfit.
So where do you normally shop?
My staple stores are CUSP, Aritzia, Anthropologie, J.Crew, BCBG, Free People and Luxury Garage Sale. In preparation for Miss USA in Las Vegas, I also did a lot of damage at Topshop, Akira and online at NastyGal.com.
