Tara Starlet is one of my favorite retro brands, HANDS DOWN. In my opinion she’s one of very few retro brands bringing a new creative spin on 1950s & 60s style. The bold colors, the styling, the fit, I can go on and on. She has a keen eye for fashion and is producing pieces that speak to my soul as someone who likes to add a more creative and experimental touch to my own retro style. Tara recently released a 1960s inspired collection that features pieces everyone needs in their closet RIGHT NOW…. Read More

I apologize for not having a pic of my entire outfit but lets be honest, my vintage top, cat eye sunglasses, and Luxulite Lobster earrings steal the show anyway!
One of the most popular scenes from The Devil Wears Prada is when one of the main characters, Miranda, played by Meryl Streep, explains to one of her uncaring employees as to why fashion is so important–not to her, but to society. In the film she tells this individual that even though she acted as though she had no interest in the fashion industry or in the outfits she wore daily, the fashion industry was responsible for pouring billions of dollars into the economy and providing thousands of people jobs. Moreover, every… Read More
