It was a business meeting. Normally Cousin Doris went to these on her own, but she was meeting her new stockbroker for the first time and asked Emma Jean to tag along. For the occasion Emma Jean chose a more conservative ensemble. She chose gold as her color palette because she felt it appropriate for the tone of the meeting, but went with a stunning lame frock with lace and organza overtones with matching lace jacket. She added a pearl necklace and her signature flower pinned to her shoulder. As they walked through the door of the restaurant, Randolph Miller looked up. Life changed immediately for each of them when Randolph first saw Emma Jean at the Silver Palette.
