Saturday afternoon was spent with my family watching our beloved young cousin, Elizabeth, in the Johnson City Youth Ballet as they performed “The Nutcracker.”
My sister, Glenda, and I never had children, so we bestow all of our mothering instincts onto our first-cousin, Rhonda’s daughter, Elizabeth. She is the only young person in our immediate local family, so she is showered with a lot of love and attention.
Elizabeth has been dancing since she was about three years old. She excels in ballet, as pictured above in two performances from this weekend.
I wanted to wear something festive and bright on this sunny afternoon, so I chose my Damee NY red jacket and a Murano glass necklace by Lorena. It felt more like Spring than Christmas time as the temperatures climbed into the mid-60’s.
I wore a three-quarter sleeve black crepe top and a pair of pants from Chico’s with many years old Anne Klein heels. The Thistle & Bee silver cuff bracelet was a gift from Mr. Mickey. The sheer pantyhose are from White House|Black Market. The bag is old from T.J.Maxx.
The necklace and the Murano glass beads infused with silver used to create it are all handmade in Italy. This is the latest item I have gotten from Uno Alla Volta. The accessories I have from this company are timeless and of the best quality. These are items I can enjoy over and over again for years to come.
