aztec obsession - DIY PROJECT

Nissa and I have been obsessing over all things "Aztec" or "Navajo" inspired for several months now...we've been collecting several pieces from wherever we can afford to buy, (still lusting over Lindsey Thornburg cloaks), and ALL THINGS PENDLETON of course!!!

Damn Miley Cyrus and her lustworthy vintage Aztec Necklace

Soooo Nissa and I came across some awesome Aztec print jersey fabric at the fabric store a few weeks ago, so we made a shirt (tunic style, poncho-esq) and it turned out super cute!!! We also made this necklace from several different jewelry pieces we got from the craft store....

gold dust women

I feel like New Years Eve was like a million years ago already, but I wanted to post some pictures of the dresses Nissa and I made for New Years Eve. So, here I am, a week late...

I (Heidi) made my  dress from a sheer gold fabric that has this beautiful gold sequin scalloping detail all over it.  I made a shift style dress cut oversized with long bell sleeves, boat-neck, and a low scooped back. It turned out amazing! The result was a vintage bohemian style, and I was thrilled with the result. I paired my dress with opaque black tights, my Black suede Jeffrey Campbell "Mary Roks" wedges , and my earrings were made from two necklaces that I bought from Forever 21, which I just transformed into earrings using a few jewelry tools... and last, but certainly not least, I wore my Step-grandmother's vintage fox stole...(and of course I forgot to take pictures of it)
 Nissa made here dress out of a gorgeous black silk fabric adorned with beautiful black beading. She chose an oversized tunic style with a boatneck for her dress. She ended up having to sew most if it BY HAND, because the fabric was so hard to work with on the machine...but she did an AMAZING job, and it was beautiful! She paired her dress with black opaque tights, over the knee black suede boots, vintage Chanel handbag, and black velvet tunic headband (that she made). I can't wait to wear it for another occasion!

...and here is some party pictures including some of the other dress I made for my friend Jessie. 
Happy New Years!!!!!
