When the purple Peacocks dress arrived my first thought was: Christmas! Perhaps it’s the colour, or the chiffony material, or the collar that hasn’t quite decided if it wants to be a sailor or a pussy bow… So I happily brain-stormed away: Christmas – red – bling – party – dancing… which led to a splash of red, some sequins, pretty dancing shoes and shaking my booty… And here you have it.

Just when we were settling down Leia shocked us with the news that she’d leave the UK for warmer climates. But luckily she has a worthy follower: Nic from Vint Junky. So cool to have you with us, Nic! Check out what she and Sarah, Jen, Shini, MJ, Sherin, Vicki, Adele and Saskia have come up with. We’ve also now all signed up with Shini for some extra collage design lessons.

Disco-tastic! I love your booty-shaking shot!
I'd never have thought to put those colours with it, but it they look great and it transforms it into a totally different dress

I think your look is my favorite of all! I just love the vibrant colors and of course the sequins.

Also, I miss you guys! I wish I could still be a part of the Take10 group :(

And Shini is an absolutely amazing collage-maker! I'm always in awe of her skills.
