Dress Code with Venita Aspen

Dress Code with Venita Aspen

Cue "Glamorous" by Fergie.

Welcome back to Dress Code, a seriously stylish column here on The Social that goes beyond the party and into the closets of some truly fabulous hosts. Because modern entertaining is more than a single occasion, it’s a way of life.

Venita — a vision in coral.

Next up is model, creative and all around ray of sunshine, Venita Aspen. Venita is a new friend from the road — she co-hosted our Charleston dinner for The "After" Party Tour and her infectious personality and oh-so-chic look had heads turning (mine included) all night long.

One evening of Venita fabulousness just wasn't enough, so I caught up with her recently to talk fashion and take a peak inside her enviable closet. Get ready to swoon...

Q: If your favorite party outfit could talk, what would it say?

Dayumm girl.

Put your best foot forward.

Q: What piece from your wardrobe is the most sentimental to you and why?

My Manolo Blahnik mules because it was the first name brand shoe that I bought myself.

What's your secret for taking your look from casual to chic?

Lashes can instantly add GLAM to any look and I wear them whether the dress code is casual or black-tie!

Spotted: lashes.

Q: What is your “getting ready” process for a night out?

Makeup, margarita, hair, and a great high heel.

Posing with pup.
Decisions, decisions...

Q: Where do you get your outfit inspiration?

I get dressed based on my mood.

'I get dressed based on my mood."
