Two prom dresses with a combined value of £1,200 have been stolen from an independent dress shop by opportunistic thieves.
Police want to speak to these two girls, pictured on CCTV, over the thefts from Confetti and Couture in High Street, Romford, on March 11.
Thenjiwe Sibanda, store owner for five years, said three girls walked into the shop shortly before it was due to close, at about 5.15pm.
One of the girls apparentlly said she was getting married, while the other two carried out the theft.
“One was pretending she was a bride,” explained Thenjiwe. “The other two went to the prom dress section.”
