Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: From Native designer and FIDM grad Bethany Yellowtail (who's a member of the Crow and Northern Cheyenne tribes), this sculptural, structured black leather mini dress with an exposed front zipper and lacy neckline shouts high fashion -- echoing shapes used by Tom Ford with a Gaultier-style goth edge.

Where: Yellowtail's dress is available at Dr. Jessica R. Metcalfe's new, all-Native online fashion shop Beyond Buckskin Boutique, an extension of her fashion blog Beyond Buckskin. For more on the shop, see our interview with Metcalfe.

Cost: $400

Style It: This dress walks a fine line between Gaga and glamorous (the two rarely intersect), but since it's not your everyday party dress it doesn't deserve blah accessories. We picked out greens and blues to play off the dress' futuristic shape. Below Yellowtail's dress is styled with color-block cutout sandals from Burak Uyan in mint and arctic blue, Miu Miu plexiglass and crystal bolt earrings, and a Christian Louboutin silk frame clutch.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
