"A lady should be two things, classy and fabulous."
-Gabrielle "Coco" Bonheur Chanel


And the winners are!

One of the most anticipated events of the year, the Miss & Mr. Howard Pageant was absolutely beautiful! Full of fun, talent and of course fashion, it was a wonderful show. I found myself sitting in the front row enjoying every moment as I watched the court grace the stage over and over again. During each intermission, I wandered the auditorium looking for fabulous, fun people; and of course I found some! I've posted the best of my photos and commented on each outfit.
 Paired with the Jeffrey Campbell 'Security' Boot and a lush green blazer with strong shoulders, Alison 
adds personality and chic to her outfit! The liquid leggings are a nice touch as is her black shoulder bag.
Handsome and classy, this young man wore a simple tan blazer with a tie and several pins on the side to accentuate his outfit.
Effortlessly, these young men looked dapper and clean-cut in their suits. Smooth and cunning, their bow ties were a chic addition to the typical suit! 
With a basic pair of cargo pants, this lovely lady added a pair of black wedges and a colorful beaded necklace to make her outfit pop!

Chic, cute and comfortable, this lovely lady dressed up a peach-colored cardigan with a pearl necklace and a tribal bracelet. The bow ties in her oxfords are too adorable!

This young man dressed on his "Lil' Wayne" swag as he said! The colored jeans and distressed jean jacket hoodie were fashionable, key pieces in his outfit, along with his necklaces that added some flare as well.

   Looking extremely elegant, this young lady wore a pair of white lace pants with a basic, baggy black top. She dawned an interesting head piece which was nonetheless very cute and unique!
Two members of the court in their evening wear. The lovely Miss School of Communications is on the left wearing what I assume to be a 'Sherri Hills' dress bedazzled with beautiful jewels and a mermaid fit. Also on the left, the newly crowned Miss Blue and White, is wearing a classy white gown with rose detailing on the bottom. Both ladies were poised and wore their dresses well throughout the night!
I managed to catch a few seconds with Miss District of Columbia Teen and was able to ask her a few questions about her personal style. She mentioned H&M basics as her causal, everyday style and Cache as her go to store for appearance wear. She favors dresses that are classy and age-appropriate. I photographed her at the pageant wearing a delightful orange-red dress with a slight slit in the side.
