This is probably one of the most formal dresses I own, but that doesn’t mean it broke the bank. Black nearly always looks sophisticated, and I think the velvet flower designs and slightly shimmery material make this dress look particularly elegant. I don’t often get a chance to wear it though, as I don’t go to many fancy events! Heels are a must, of course, when getting dressed up like this, and these are also my nicest pair. Also, as I’ve said many times before, Scotland is cold, so nude tights are always a good idea! I do have a toeless pair, for peep toe shoes like these, I just don’t know where I’ve put them… I went with chunky, deep purple jewellery to stand up against the darkness of the dress. Since the earrings are pretty big, I chose a more delicate necklace, so it’s not too overwhelming around my face.
