Katwalk Philanthropy

Last week, TSS was proud to be involved with a very special philanthropy event- Katwalk!  Katwalk is the annual event hosted by Kappa Alpha Theta at the University of Colorado Boulder.  Our very own It Girl, Alyx, was also the emcee for the event!  Katwalk raises money for Kappa Alpha Theta's official philanthropy, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).  As stated on the Theta website, "CASA programs can help a displaced child find the security needed to grow and reach full potential."

We sat down with Alyx to ask her a little bit about the event- and the models who walked down the Katwalk runway, representing TSS!

TSS: What exactly is Katwalk?
Alyx: Katwalk is a fashion show event to raise money for CASA.  25 organizations on campus participated, and were each given 45 seconds to walk down the runway.  They each put together dances and fun skits, to show off to the audience.  The cool thing is that not only did Greek organizations participate, but so did other campus organizations- such as the CU Dance Team!

TSS: That's so awesome that all of campus got involved!  How did you raise money, and how much did you raise?
Alyx: This year, we raised about $3,500!  We raised funds through the entry fee, participation, VIP ticket sales, and donations.  VIP's got front row seats, and goody bags!

TSS: How did you integrate CASA into the event?
Alyx: A CASA came to our event, and spoke at the beginning to introduce Katwalk.  He explained to the crowd how CASA helps to give kids a stable role model, and someone to count on.  It's so important that kids feel comforted and like someone is there for them... and that's exactly where CASA steps in to help.

TSS: What was your favorite part of Katwalk?
Alyx: The best part was seeing the Boulder community come together, have fun with one another, and all support a cause.  I also loved being the emcee!  I had a great time coming up with quirky lines and commentary after each participant took stage.  It was also exciting to see TSS represented on the runway!  The models wearing the TSS tees had a ton of fun dancing on stage.  All in all, Katwalk was a great event!

We are so happy that TSS could be a part of Katwalk.  CU Boulder Thetas, thanks for having us!

Emerald Brushes

Makeup Brushes: Sephora.

Yes, we are among the giddy people who anxiously await Pantone's Color Of The Year announcement, which is emerald for 2013But, equally exciting, is seeing the creations made by the Sephora + Pantone Universe each year.  As you may know, the two companies collaborate on a makeup collection annually, in honor of the chosen color.  We weren't sure what to expect for emerald makeup...emerald lipstick?!  Instead, Sephora has created a beautiful collection of vivid eye makeup, as well as nail polish and makeup tools-- and we love it!  Definitely chic, and perfect for 2013.  TSS It Girl, Alyx, tried out the makeup brush set in the collection.  The verdict?  TSS approved... plus, brushes in a pretty color do seem to make everything more fun!

Excited to meet the rest of our It Girls, and learn more about Alyx from University of Colorado Boulder?  Our big It Girl announcement is coming later this week, and we can't wait to share it with you!
