Hi there!

My name is Tara, and this is my Platinum Parlor.  I am a wife & mother living a life inspired by feminine feels & vintage vibes.  Here, I document my adventures around Southern California involving classic fashion, beauty products, home decor, & places of interest.  Please come in and stay for a while...

Ahhh.... light blue.  My favorite color.  I love the sense of calm it brings (and doesn’t hurt that it compliments my light eyes).  Today, I have paired this pastel that I use year round with an Autumn neutral in my wide leg trousers to break it up.  This look portrays me today.   Since hitting the big 3-0, I think of my mom often and how she has always told me that it wasn’t until she was in her 30s that she really felt confident and understood who she was stylistically.  I feel classy, sophisticated, myself, & confident.

A classy robin egg blue handbag in leather and faux calf hair.  I love those minimal  gold accents.

These photos were taken in November while participating in the 30 Day Pinup Hair Challenge, which I ended up winning third place!  See days 1-10 by clicking here.  Since completing that challenge I have been on a much needed break.  December was exhausting with Christmas prep, and my two kids were in my older son's production of The Nutcracker.  On top of that! I was sick all month, and planning ahead for a very big 2018.  I cannot wait to share some of these announcements with you in the coming days and weeks.  Stay tuned!
