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...

Happy Friday the 13th!

Happy Friday the 13th!

This may as well be the spookiest of October's as we also get a visit from Friday the 13th only 2 weeks away from Halloween.  I know I take after my mom in many ways when it comes to holidays.  When I was a kid, she would make our Halloween costumes, throw festive parties, and I'm pretty sure I had a puffy paint shirt for every holiday on the calendar.... and I may also still get an Easter basket every Spring from the "Easter Bunny."  So with this kind of upbringing I feel obligated to participate in holiday attire.  Mixing that with my love of vintage inspiration I have brought this look for you today on Friday the 13th!

Let's start with my hat!  From my good friend over at Polished Raven.  Her inventory consists of dozens of gorgeous vintage hats, but she has also been learning the skills of a milliner creating this Polished Raven original.  You can get this "Rebecca" style here.

I picked up my blouse (which is actually a body suit) from Pinup Girl Clothing last Spring.  Unfortunately it is no longer on their site.  It has a plunging V-neck and flowing, sheer sleeves, and the fact that it is a body suit is great to make sure it stays tucked in to my pants, another discontinued item (ugh!).  

From the Lauren Conrad line, I have been impressed several times from this Orange County native.  Her designs are feminine and usually available in a  range of pastels, including my soft green, high waist, wide leg trousers.  Although I do not have a link for the pants, check out this Lauren Conrad pink coat, you won't be disappointed.

Finally, an item I DO have available for you.  That creepy cute spider brooch, embellished with sparkling rhinestones, pulls this Friday the 13th look together and he's only $6!!! Get yours here. 

Have  frightful night!
