On Saturday, I had the pleasure of once again working with my dear friend Krista who owns Monkee's of Johnson City.
The necklace is from S.M. Bradford on Hilton Head Island. The shoes are from last year, and they are by Vince Camuto. The bag is from Express.
I loved seeing my sweet friends again and meeting loyal followers of the blog. It was thrilling to hear "I follow your blog!" so many times during the day.
It was an honor to be in the company of hundreds of generous women who donated their time and money to help others who might not be able to afford the early detection that is necessary to outlive cancer.
I made a great discovery today when I met Alexandria W. Alli from F&W Style. She is the designer of a fabulous line of handbags of excellent quality. The rich colors and textures are so classic and elegant. I will be buying several of her designs!
I modeled an emerald cape sleeve dress with black leggings accessorized by a hand beaded necklace and carried a small beige clutch bag. These items are from Monkee's of Johnson City.
Several of the young women who modeled with me on this day are breast cancer survivors.
Proceeds from this event will assist the Wellmont Cancer Institute to improve access and affordability for breast cancer screenings.
