If you could steal anyone’s wardrobe past or present whose would it be and why?
Bunty: I’m a big fan of 1920′s and 30′s glamour so would love to get my hands on Jean Harlow’s dresses.
Belle: I love the 70′s boho chic style of Marie Helvin.

How would you describe your personal style?
Feminine and relaxed.

How do you individualise a look?
This season we have layered our pretty dresses with casual, basic T-shirts to get a real mix of day and evening. Don’t just save your special party piece for best- find ways to dress them down and wear in the daytime.
 
Your best advice when it comes to shopping would be…
Make sure you’re wearing good underwear!
 
What must have item should every woman have in her wardrobe?
Bunty: Great shoes – It’s the one thing I can’t scrimp on.
Belle: A ‘Go To’ dress that is a fail safe to any occasion. Make sure it’s dry cleaned and ready to go at a moments notice!

What do you think is the biggest fashion faux pas?
Bunty: For me it’s wearing a trend just because it’s in fashion and not dressing to suit your shape.
Belle: Don’t wear anything you don’t feel yourself in. Clothes should add to your confidence not take it away.
 
Who are your favourite designers?
We both love Chloe and are glad to see it is gradually returning to its feminine ways. We have our eyes on that Creative Director role! Jewellery wise, Alex Monroe has a massive range of great things that are all so individual and pretty.
 
Any new designers we should be keeping our eyes out for?
A friend’s label Suzannah does great structured pieces.
 
Are you beauty junkies? What can’t you live without?
Yes!!!
Bunty: Clarins Blue Orchid Oil, Soap and Glory Sugar Scrub, Mac Hyper Real Foundation, a good Eyelash curler and Bourjois Black Voluminous Mascara.  
Belle: Declor Balm Essential, Elemis Moisture Melt and Clarins Eau Ressourcante and Pure Almond Oil for everything else!
