The folks from Mimco recently asked me to join ‘An Unpredictable Revolution’ – a promotion they’re doing for their latest collection, which is in stores this July.  They asked me to choose a piece from the collection, I picked out a gorgeous bug brooch, then incorporate that into a visual or written interpretation of one of the following themes: ‘Darkness Becomes Her’, ‘Tortured Elegance’, ‘Twisted kinship’ or ‘Minimal Overload’.

I chose Tortured Elegance because it’s inspired by Marie Antoinette and she is one of my ultimate style icons.  I made a little set up using the backdrop from Happy Birthday Dropstitch and styled it with a few pieces of jewellery and ornaments I thought you might find in Marie Antoinette’s boudoir.
