Siobhan's Top 5 Fashion Essentials

Chambray ShirtMadewell | The perennially perfect layering piece has transformative properties in making any girly dress more grunge or a simple tee look more put together. 
Black CamiH&M | In a world of sheer shirts, the cami gives a lady just the right amount of opacity. Thinly strapped, but greatly supportive of our diaphanous dreams. 
High-waisted JeansTopshop | These magical jeans suck you in the all the right places, and since Miriam and I are crop-top-aholics, they are essential for revealing just the perfect bit of skin.
Ankle Boots - Zara | Somewhere in between flats and heels, lies my most hardworking form of footwear -- the ankle boot. I probably have far too many of this type of shoe, but I wear them so much (in all seasons!) that it's worth it.
An Assortment of Midi RingsForever 21 | It was Miriam who inducted me into the ring-worshipping cult, and I ain't never going back! Midi rings are the new fresh manicure, and I get delighted every time I look down and see them on my fingers.

Miriam's Essentials

Red LipstickNars | The answer to so many of life's problems; if a new haircut is making you uneasy, or you feel "meh" about an outfit, it's surprising what a big difference a little slick of lipstick will make.
Nude BraPrincesse Tam Tam | Not the most beautiful of underwear, but when you're obsessed with white blouses, they're an unfortunate necessity - in the wise words of Ms Houston, "It's not right, but it's okay"
Metallic Brogues - Russell and Bromley | Like every good Scout, one should always be prepared and these shoes mean that you're ready to hit the dancefloor at a moment's notice, should the mood take you.  
White Blouse - Monki | Like a moth to a flame, whenever shopping I head straight to the white blouses. Prim and proper, they keep everything in line with my Victorian sensibilities.
A Good ClutchZara | Not overly practical,  but that's never been a huge concern and actually, it really is surprising how much crap you can cram into a clutch.
