I don't like wearing black; and black certainly does me no favours... So, whenever I want to dress in dark colours I usually go for navy, instead. It is certainly kinder to my pale skin.
I've had this Vivienne Westwood Anglomania dress for ages, and I wear it as a sundress. I don't believe in saving clothes for special occasions: there are so few of those, and nice clothes need to be worn. I've actually worn this dress to work on several occasions. The best thing about the dress? It has pockets!
On this occasion, however, I was actually going to a very nice restaurant (nothing fancy, just the weekly Saturday evening dinner out with Professor M), so I did accessorize a bit more, and went for a classic pearl necklace look.

Do you have special occasion dresses? And how often do you wear them?
