Mimco - Whispers & Anarchy

Photobucket
The inspiration behind this collection is quite fantastical, a curious blend of retro-romance and future chic, kind of like mixing the wardrobes of Betty Page and Ziggy Stardust together!
I introduced you to the Mimco promotion, Whispers & Anarchy the other day with a brief synopsis of the story behind the promotion. When it came to styling my own shoot, my thoughts were very much in the Beatnik era of the 50's/60's as well as being inspired by the Mimco video itself, strolling through the leafy streets of Paris - check it out for yourself below. I chose another bag from the collection, a very striking mustard leather pouch bag, which I see being a stylish accessory for many more outfits to come.

Stunning photos!!

And I'm loving the turban - I saw a similar one at River Island the other day, but I couldn't tell if it was cotton or polyester, do you know what yours is?

Either way, you look fab :)

thank you all :-)

christine - i'm not sure but prob poly! i have 3 different colours, the other 2 were bought from a different seller and were more expensive & definitely better quality. i don't think this one is very well made but i do like the colour.

Beautiful Paula,

sorry for the long absence. I've been here, I wouldn't miss an update by you ever, but just couldn't find time to leave any footprints behind.

Again, love your turban. suits your striking dark hair and pretty blue eyes. Love these photos. think Mimco must be very happy with them.
