It’s hard to believe that Spoleto season is just around the corner. The performing arts festival heralds the start of summer and outdoor soirees. If you want to be in the know with all the cool parties and discounted tickets, the Spoleto SCENE is the way to go. One of the SCENE parties on June 2nd will be at the newly renovated and ultra hip Restoration Hotel. The event celebrates the Aakash Odedra Company, an British born Indian dancer who brings traditional Indian dance into the modern world. Deirdre Zahl of Candy Shop Vintage will be DJing while Cathead Vodka serves up the cocktails.
The big question is what to wear at all of these fabulous events? With so much variety out there it’s hard to go wrong. For an outdoor roof party I opted for this long and flowy dress by Mara Hoffman from The Resort Shop at Freshfields Village. Nothing says the 70’s like these oversized shades from Friedrich’s Optik Charleston. Statement jewelry is my go to, and I piled it on to complete my look.
Style is individual and a form of creative expression. Spoleto is the perfect place to take a chance and let your artistic side shine in what you wear.
