Summer Fun

Date | Night

Have some exciting summer plans with someone special? Night at the symphony.. or a romantic dinner out? Let me introduce you to the gorgeous one-of-a-kind finds at the Land Piranha Vintage’s Etsy Shop. I adore Shanti’s beautiful vintage pieces… these are some items I would put together for a fantastic night on the town! First – and I couldn’t just pick one (so I gave you two choices), this fabulous 1950′s Audrey Hepburn black velvet cocktail dress. I love the neckline and the tapered waist.. it is very elegant and the perfect little black dress. If that one wouldn’t work for you, there is an attractive 1950′s evening gown with rhinestone embellishment.  I love the pleated waist on this one and the rhinestone belt.. so pretty and flattering!

Of course, the next thing any girl needs after picking out a fab dress is a great pair of shoes… check out the detail on these patent leather heels! I found a little black mini slip that is perfect for under the dress and a vintage flower brooch to complete the look… now just grab your little evening bag (so classic!) and you are set. Please note that this fabulous head to toe combination will only set you back $116 plus shipping….. what a steal!

If you can’t get enough of these vintage pieces, Land Piranha Vintage is a must… her shop just celebrated its one year anniversary (congratulations girl!) and she is stocked with fabulous new finds for fall.. hello little vintage scottish plaid skirt ! Keep up with all the latest vintage finds on here facebook fan page or on her fabulous blog, Shantilly Lace.
