Less is more…more or less.
What is your definition of style?
It’s what makes you…you. It’s an expression of who you are. It’s not just what you wear, but the way you wear it, interpret it and make it your own. It’s a state of mind and so much more than what’s in your wardrobe.
Laura: Every season! For the opportunity to refresh and reinvent.
Nancy: Spring/Summer. For clothes and shoes that are simple and colourful and shimmer in the sunshine.
What is your must-have handbag item?
Laura: After trialing oh so many mascaras, I’m down to the one as I regard as my ultimate and is always by my side; Clinique high impact.
Nancy: My Clinique chubby lipstick (no.11 two ton tomato)
Signature colour or monochrome chic?
Laura: Monochrome for workwear, but ultimately colour when there time for a little more planning and the sun is shining.
Nancy: Monochrome mostly but with a pop of colour. I do love to wear more colour in the summer. I’m also a denim obsessive.
Who is your ultimate style icon?
Laura: Cate Blanchett
Nancy: Debbie Harry
What are your favourite stores?
Laura: Topshop for fashion that you never grow out of and H&M for the staples that you always need. But it’s not just about the wardrobe when like me you are stationery obsessive; so Waterstones and Paperchase are also up there.
Nancy: Waterstones is my favourite store and always pop in for a browse and a book. Fashion-wise I like H&M for quick fashion updates, kids clothes and sportswear. M&S is great for coats and knits. Schuh and TKMaxx are also usually on my hit list (ask anyone…I’m a fast shopper).
What’s on your Autumn/Winter wish list?
Laura: Line up in waiting for my next night out is a gorgeous grey and silver clutch from Oasis, but on my hit list are the ultimate boots – I’m currently narrowing down my options!
Nancy: I’ve already bought a cool pair of shiny textured trainers, a brilliant denim pinafore from Warehouse and shh, don’t tell everyone…an amazing animal print hoodie from Per Una at M&S.
