Which do you prefer, gold or silver?
I refuse to pick one, I like both, and I match my jewellery to the colours I’m wearing on a particular day. So, if I’m wearing blue or green, it’s usually gold-tone jewellery, and silver with pink, fuchsia or purple.
However, today I wanted to try something different, and decided to wear gold-tone jewellery with this hot pink dress.
I’ve worn this dress only twice: first for my wedding reception (which was held at an airport VIP room on a very cold December day), and then a few days later for Christmas dinner in Madeira. What it needs, though, is a coat: something a bit ornamental, maybe brocade opera coat -style… something very early 60s Mad Men…

I like this type of a dress; in fact, I have a wardrobe full of them, in various colours. I just haven’t worn any of them for a while. I think it’s mainly because I think this type of a dress is perfect for winter: with a little cashmere cardigan on top, and the Spanx it requires is really not something I want to wear on a hot day… And constant travelling has made me lazy: I seem to favour wash-and-wear jersey dresses that can be tossed into a suitcase and always emerge wrinkle-free…

What do you think, do pink and gold go together?
