I do tend to pick out bright colors, but it could be a dress or pants. Depends on the event. But I have found that there are a few things that I ALWAYS put on when it's an important day: lipstick and perfume. I guess that is from seeing my grandmother dressed up for church every week. She tended to always have those things on too. It was important to her, and it wasn't about impressing, but about showing that SHE took something seriously - and putting herself in the mindset to take it seriously. I think that little extra effort to show it's important to me goes a LONG way in impressing someone else.
