Beauty Pageants On A Budget

by Anne Middleton, on January 6th, 2016

After Steve Harvey’s Miss Universe Pageant blunder and the subsequent internet speculation, we pondered why so many are invested in beauty pageants these days.  Approximately 2.5 million girls compete in more than 100,000 beauty pageants each year in the U.S.  Pageant-hopping can be an expensive quest for the crown, with gowns costing in the thousands.  What many viewers don’t see is the other outfits the pageant contestants have to wear and accessorize as well.  If you’re looking to get into pageantry, here’s a few shoes that you can get with our promo codes:

1. The Deco Caged Bootie will be the perfect shoe for your formal attire.  Sparkling with rhinestones, it will accentuate your sparkling smile and not detract from your dress.  It should match your crown well too.  Get it from Boston Proper.

2. The Chuck Taylor All Star Sequins by Converse is perfect for all the outings contestants have the week of the competition.  Glittery and golden, this a perfectly comfortable shoe for putting your best foot forward.

3. UGG’s Fluff Flip Flop II is perfect for your feet after hours of dancing and prancing in high heels all day.  One thing contestants forget is that you will be spending inordinate amounts of time in high heels, all which can take its toll on your feet and circulation.  Pamper your feet with these ultra-soft slippers.

Over 6 million watched this year’s Miss Universe Pageant, though it seemed more were talking about Steve Harvey’s mistake of declaring the wrong winner.  If you’re a pageant pro or a newbie, you’re going to need great shoes to be competitive, so shop with our codes and save!  Now, go practice your wave.
