All a (feather) Flutter
This stunning Lipsy number is an amazing way to step up your LBD game without changing your look completely. The sweetheart neck shows a bit of cleavage to keep them guessing and the feathers add a touch of opulence that is sure to turn heads and ruffle a few feathers. Keep it simple with the jewellery and tie the look together with a subtle smoky eye and a nude lip.
