I was given this incredibly gorgeous 1930s piano shawl, and the weaving was so delicate and lovely I had to share. Piano shawls were used much as you would assume, to cover pianos and prevent knicks and scratches. They were very popular in the Victorian era, and are usually very elaborate. I read that the fringe helps the shawl drape over the piano, so thats why its added.
This one has a few holes in it, but I'm going to find a spot to display it where the holes are not as noticeable, and hopefully darn a few to help keep it intact.

Yesterday was such a perfect summer day, I had a swanky dinner consisting of martinis and mahi, and then finally snapped some pictures of these great sunglasses I owe a review for. I've gotten sunglasses from Sunglass Shop before. (see here). However, this SXUC pair easily became my all time favorite, and they get a ton of compliments to boot. Bonus, I know they are sturdy glasses because my friends baby was going to town playing with them and they held up perfectly. So, go check out their selection of designer sunglasses, and snatch up a new pair for summer! Dress: 1950s Sunglasses: c/o Sunglass Shop Shoes: DSW
