Combining Fashion, Fun, & Philanthropy: Where to Wear October 2022 Style Guide

Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others. “Help others without any reason and give without the expectation of receiving anything in return. “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."

Let's explore activities taking place this month that offer up entertainment and give back to some pretty amazing causes - - and to look good doing it with the help from TIVOL's jewelry fashion experts who have their finger on the pulse of what to wear to events in Kansas City.
