…..held at Valerie Foster Hoffman’s which immediately tells you it will be something grand and glorious! This one, featuring GRAYSE and the JEWELRY BAR was to benefit THE LEAGUE FOR CHILDREN.
Thoughtful Valerie had a Valet service waiting for her guests or, with so many people attending, we’d have to walk forever from our cars.
Sign in please…..Perhaps you’ll win a prize!
Lydia Conley is the Vice President of Retail and Sales for GRAYSE, the company formed by Kelly and Marie Gray who were the original founders of St. John Knits.
How nice to see Mary, the delightful sister of artiste extraordinaire Peter Adams!
Josie, in charge of all things delicious, is Valerie’s awesome Chef and that title is not encompassing enough for her. Remember the lovely birthday luncheon she prepared for me? Oh Josie you are truly gifted!
No, this was not for me. My memory is that I asked for sparkling water. Yes, I’m sure of that!
One of the stunning models in a GRAYSE. The outfit also comes in black.
I used to be tall.
Our exquisite hostess with lovely daughter Vanessa and the cutest grandsons ever!

Hey, I thought I was the official photographer!
Here’s precious Linda Bowling who later told Carol & me the most hysterical story about her husband Skip when he was a boy. (Wild horses couldn’t drag it out of me but that’s a clue!)
When I told Peggy I was going to take her photo she said,”Oh no, I’m feeling like an elephant!” So I guess that would make me a hippo!
I was so happy dear Carol arrived just as I was leaving so back I went. We had a chance to sit and talk ……..❤️
To make the afternoon complete, everyone received a gift bag containing a lovely silk GRAYSE scarf!
It may be ‘All about da bass, ‘bot the bass,…’ But for me it’s all about the dogs!
Wishing you a bow wow wowie week!
