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...

Graffiti-Art Mural in Santa Monica, CA

I've been caught!  Yes, although I prefer soft colors, there are days when I wear black.  I know this isn't the most glamorous look, but was this meant to be?  I had to pullover!  On a family day in Santa Monica, we turned down a residential neighborhood and on the backside of a building that borders it, was this huge mural!   The past, teenage, punk rocker in me was loving this.   I mainly saw the skulls, but if you look there's a jumble of other things like a wine glass, spaceships, fish?  My point is, I love stumbling across these things, especially when I have my camera with me.  

My outfit, although dark and comfy, I still feel confident in.  These include my favorite Jennifer Lopez jeggings from Kohl's that have a high rise and above the ankle length.  I'm obsessed with chunky oversized sweaters, and I have truly (already) over-worn this cardigan from Ava & Viv from Target.  Finally, my black and clear vintage wedges, and rad dark sunnies from Perverse Sunglasses gave me my retro look I always need, and my pop of pink today was my faux leather tote from H&M.
