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.
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…

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