After the success of the dress me and Roey 'pimped' last week we went to Manchester to raid the Northern quarter for more monstrosities in need of a Peaches makeover! We now have around 20 items in need of a major 'face lift'!
This week saw Polly's turn to be 'pimped' along with the dress! The dress is made from a gorgeous sheer linen cotton ( if there is such a thing?) with a hand painted floral design in this seasons hottest shades of mint, lemon,pink and powder blue. We decided to take it up and trim with a matching mint lace. We then also took the sleeves up using the rolling technique we used last week. We transformed the tacky satin sash by removing the bow and replacing it with one made from the leftovers of the skirt. Finally no ' Pimp My Dress' transformation is complete without a matching Marebow which we also made from the leftovers of the dress, using the centre from the pink satin bow that we took off the belt!
For the hair and makeup we kept it simple and girlie. Polly used one of the Peaches soon to be released Pigments in a Green Apple shade on her eyes with a flicked liner and of course 2 sets of Peaches Best Selling number 09 strip eyelashes. Nic provided the finishing touches with an extra large high ponytail, a very popular look with alot of clients at the salon this season.
So there you have it.... cashing in at a grand total of £11! £10 for the dress and £1 for the bundle of lace from Abakhan Fabrics behind TJ's on London Road!
Have promised Nic its her turn next week so watch this space for Baby Peach rockin' Grandma Chic! xxx
