The Aztec and Chocolates...

"My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start.  So far today, I have finished two bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake.  I feel better already." -Dave Barry

Like Dave, we too have big plans for achievement, inner peace, and all things chocolate in 2011, especially when thinking about the wonderful neutral a rich shade of chocolate brown can be to any wardrobe.  The word chocolate has been said to come from the Aztec word "xocoatl".  The Aztecs, and before them the Mayans, used to drink spicy chocolate flavored with chilis, achiote, and vanilla.  Which is why we think our newest piece bears the name "Aztec" well. 

The "Aztec" from our Isis Collection, which can be yours for $120.00, is made up of a bib of chocolate brown, burnt orange, and cream beads hung from a bold, gold chain.  The arrow inspired peach crystal pendants make this piece special.  It has been styled here with a simple outfit of all black and a faux fur vest by Cynthia Rowley.  Lesson learned from the Aztecs and Mayans...don't forget the chocolate or at least something sweet:)  We also think this piece would be a lovely addition to the looks below....vT* 
Odette's rich orange hue gown would be an ideal backdrop for the "Aztec"
The "Aztec" would be perfect with this look for a Saturday afternoon*
 We also think it would be a sweet addition to a simple blush top and liquid leggings*
Finally, the "Aztec" could be the final touch to Carrie's cool desert look*
