The annual Wine Women & Shoes event to benefit the Ballad Health Foundation took place on Saturday. The event helps to improve access to and affordability of breast cancer screenings for women in the region. I served as one of the shoe judges along with Angela Baker, the Publisher of VIPSeen Magazine.
Above, I am visiting with my beautiful friend Krista Matthews Wharton owner of Monkee’s of Johnson City before all the excitement began.
Suzanne Burritt McKinney is a follower of the blog and the designer of the fabulous line of jewelry, Beauty In Stone Jewelry.
I always enjoy visiting with my talented friend Alexandria W. Alli designer of F&W Style. Her fabulous handbags are of excellent quality and timeless in style. I want to buy them all!
Shoe Guys include men from the community who are somehow connected to women supporting the event. They hand out wine glasses, help guests throughout the event, and also raise money for the event. A King of Sole title is awarded to the man who raises the most money for the benefit.
My look for the event included a white layered V-neck tank from Express with white pants by Lior Paris from My Fair Lady. The jacket is a couple of years old and it is from White House|Black Market. The gray handbag is also from Express. The shoes are by Charles Jourdan a few years ago. My affiliate link for the French Kande pearl necklace is here.
My sincere thanks to Mr. Mickey for giving up his Saturday to take these photos for you and for generously supporting the Ballad Health Foundation.
