Dressed for a Cause, Part II — ‘Women’s Voices for Change’ Celebrates 10 Years

On Monday September 21st, our non-profit organization, Women’s Voices for Change, celebrated ten years with a fabulous luncheon attended by over 400 guests of elegance and style. Our publisher, Dr. Patricia Allen, wrote about the significance of the moment in the history of the organization’s growth. We honored Christy Turlington Burns, chosen as our 2015 Champion for Change, an award given to women who have made a difference.

Our luncheon guests glowed with their enthusiasm and support for the work of Women’s Voices. While we were discussing serious matters, we also took note of what they wore for our fun Fashion Friday series. Last week, we featured several stylish women in attendance with a talent for pairing their outfits with beautiful jewelry pieces and accessories. This week, we zoomed in on the lovely arm candy accompanying them—their handbags, purses and clutches.

Junia Doan told us she was wearing “a dress to make myself happy!” She paired it with a necklace that is “helping local economies.” We love them both!
