Stepping Out for KidneyTexas

Piper Young, Yvonne Crum and Jill Rowlett
KidneyTexas will hold their annual fundraiser, Stepping Out in Style, a fashion show and luncheon on September 15 at Brook Hollow Country Club.

Event Co-Chairs, Pat McDonough and Marianne Wilshusen along with KidneyTexas President Megan Meyercord hosted a Kick Off Party last night at Tootsies where 15% of the evening's sales went to benefit this great charity.

KidneyTexas Board members modeled Spring fashions from Tootsies in a "style talk" led by Tootsies lead-stylista Alison Volk.  What's hot for Spring/Summer? According to Volk it's anything white - then pair it with a POP of color, neon colors, pairing opposite colors on the color wheel - blue with orange or pink with green and retro animal prints.

Jewelry designer Ashley LaRocca from Roc Candy Jewelry was also on the scene and there was a lot of ooooh-ing and aaaaah-ing going on over at the jewelry counter. Fabulous stuff. You can check out their designs here (and then go buy it at Tootsies)!
