Romeo loved Juliet, Juliet she felt the same..

I love the pretty party dresses which Fever have got in their occasion collection at the moment. Oodles of lace, chiffon and tulle. I thought I'd step a little out of my comfort zone when I was asked to style one up. Instead of my usual 50s influence, I picked the Barbarella prom dress, which I think has more of a 60s vibe.

I'm never quite convinced that I suit the hemlines and silhouettes of the era but I love a good textured fabric, so this won me over in no time. And it's always good to try new things, right?

I belted the dress (partly because the sizing on this runs large and I could have gone down a couple of sizes) using a vintage belt which my Nan actually wore in the 60s. I then found this coat and realised it would match my new Carvela heels quite nicely and hoped the gold detail would draw it all together. Note also my stab at a hair-do inkeeping with the style..

  5. This dress looks amazing on you, I'd never have guessed it wasn't meant to be belted as the belt goes with it so well.
