Vote for Mandy Schendel!

This past weekend a few of us had the opportunity to attend the send-off luncheon and fashion show for Mandy Schendel (also known as Miss Washington) before she heads to The Miss America Pageant in Vegas on January 12th.

I went with Hourglass artists Hillary and Nicolle and Nicolle’s husband Jay, and we had a lot of fun being part of all the festivities. The event featured a preview of all the outfits Mandy would be wearing for the pageant, and since we had delivered Mandy’s custom hand-painted shoes to her just that morning, none of us had seen the shoes with the dress (which she’ll be wearing for the talent portion of the pageant).

We were excited and a little nervous until she came on stage, but then there she was and I can’t talk about what the shoes or the dress look like until after the pageant airs, but I CAN say…wow. Just wow. Mandy looked gorgeous in her dress, and the shoes couldn’t have been more perfect to complete the look. Really. I’m going go ahead and blame it on lack of sleep, but I may have gotten just a little teary.

Needless to say, we’re all very excited, and we want Mandy to go all the way to the crown.

And guess what? You can help make her a finalist. Click right here to watch Mandy’s video and vote for her!
