I’m excited to share the exciting news that the wildly popular international pop-up dinner party Dîner en Blanc will come to come to Charleston on October 15th!  Diner en Blanc (“Dinner in White”) was launched in Paris over twenty-five years ago and has extended their flash-mob feast” in over 60 cities in 25 countries.  Guests wearing all white will gather at a secret location (only to be discovered moments before the event begins), enjoy a gourmet dinner and drinks, and dance the night away in a picturesque location here in Charleston.  Click here to find out more info and register for this unforgettable night.

If your looking for a white outfit in Charleston after Labor Day, don’t despair.  Plenty of local boutiques still have left over white clothing from spring and summer and the beauty is, it’ll probably be on sale.  Vintage and consignment is always a no brainer too.  For the ladies – check out my local favorites like The Trunk Show, Holy City Consignment, Ensemble, and Terrace Oaks Antiques;  for the men – Worn in West Ashley and Mt. Pleasant is always my go to spot.  If you really want to stand out in a good way, this feathered frock featured here from Warren on King is the perfect 20’s inspired party dress to dance the night away.  Last time I stopped in they had a full size run, but don’t wait too long!
