When we donate time and money to make our communities a better place, it benefits all who live there. We are very fortunate to have a splendid symphony orchestra in Johnson City. The price of the tickets for admission does not come close to covering all of the expenses, so we donate regularly and are involved with and attend many events to help raise money for our Orchestra. The arts have always been an essential part of my life and for many others as well. I have spoken with Physicians, Researchers and the owners of companies which brought many jobs to our area who tell me that one of the reasons they chose to locate here is due in part because we have a Symphony Orchestra.
My friend, Marilyn Robertson has served as the President and given tirelessly to our Symphony. It is always a pleasure to see her.
The meeting was held at The Blackthorn Club. The flowers surrounding our club are always breathtaking!
The close-up shot above better shows the textures and details so that you can see why I wore these pieces together. The jacket has a sculpting wire encased in the collar so that you can adjust it as you wish and it will stay there.
I wore black slim fitting jeans with a wide, smooth waistband by Lior Paris here. The tank under the jacket is from my shopping site here. The jacket which is both dressy and casual at the same time is by Damee NY, and it is offered in several color combinations here. The details and fabric make it easy to wear with a tank dress, or faded jeans and a white tank top. I appreciate pieces that can be worn in many ways during the transitional seasons. My shoes are by J. Renee’. The no-name bag is a few years old.
