I'm going to an event week after next - drsscose is "smart formal" - I'm assuming this means that I'll finally have an excuse to wear my new long black monsoon dress? Also - could I wear a coloured cardi/bolero with matching handbag/shoes rather than all balck or would it look ridiculous?

Dress is a definite. Matchy-matchy accessories on the other hand.......I would go for a coloured bolero OR a fab bag OR fab shoes - try to go for one "eye catching" detail rather than overload.
