. ONE OF A KIND
ONCE PERSONALLY OWNED BY ELVIS PRESLEY ,HIMSELF!!! You are bidding on a ONE OF A KIND, multi- blue denim jacket and pants outfit STUDDED with RED RHINESTONE CRYSTALS and BRASS STUDS, made by 'LOVE MELODY', with the label
"Good Karma Made Me". This outfit is a one of a kind design that was sold from the boutique, ‘Sister John’. ELVIS BOUGHT THIS OUTFIT and PERSONALLY took it from where it was hanging in his Graceland closet, handed it as a gift to his girlfriend at the time, JoCathy Brownlee (Elkington). Persons present and witnessed by Barbara Klein (Bauer) and Jo Smith. Elaborate LOA from JoCathy with photos of her holding this outfit. LOA by Barbara Klein Bauer also. JoCathy Brownlee Elkington has been the media’s old Elvis’ girlfriend darling for the past few years, appearing many times in Memphis at Elvis Fans events. She has also been interviewed at length many times on Sirius Elvis Radio. She is referred to at length in several books about her relationship with Elvis. The Memphis newspaper published a photo interview article about her relationship with Elvis right after he died in 1977. Delta Magazine did a full page article about her dating Elvis as well. She is and has been for many years a very close friend of Barbara Klein Bauer and George Klein. In fact it was thru the Kleins that JoCathy began dating Elvis in 1975. On JoCathy’s first August of 1975 date with Elvis, he bought her a brand new Pontiac Grand Prix car, the story with photo of which was written up in the Memphis newspaper at the time. One of the photos shown is JoCathy wearing a red dress standing next to Elvis. Elvis ended up giving JoCathy many things and I was lucky enough to purchase several of those things from her several years ago. I AM SELLING THIS DENIM JACKET & PANTS OUTFIT FOR MY DEAR FRIEND, JOCATHY. SHE LOST HER JOB WITH THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY LAST SEPTEMBER. ANY PROFIT FROM THIS ONE ITEM WILL GO DIRECTLY TO HER.
COMES WITH FANTASTIC DOCUMENTATION, 3 coa's from: JoCathy Brownlee Elkington, Barbara Klein Bauer &Alyce H. Peterson.
