I want a peineta. I’m not sure where I’d ever get the chance to wear one but I have always swooned over them. Peinetas are large decorative combs usually worn by Spanish women under a mantilla, or lace head covering. It dates back to the 18th century in Spain and is now used today primarily during special occasions like weddings, bullfights, processions and traditional performances of flamenco music. Traditional and so beautiful…

DIY Proenza Schouler Rope Necklace

Lauren and I have been waiting for an excuse to use colorful bungee cords for some time now. And after seeing this Proenza Schouler necklace from their Resort 2011 collection, we jumped at the opportunity to recreate our own version of this amazing piece of jewelry!

You’ll need:
– 25 inches of bungee cord or climbing rope
– a yard of thick twisted cord
– some thin rope such as mason line
– some twine
– a pair of scissors
– a lighter
– a hot glue gun
