Cotton Candy Cuties

Carnivals, cotton candy and creme sodas have us on a cloud, as we relish in California's sizzling summer of sweets, and sunshine! Twinning in Tara Starlet was summer goals, as her adorably themed ensembles always have us retro-ready for a nifty and nostalgic time...


As you might know, we have a deep adoration for the "Dolly Sisters," played by June Haver and Betty Grable in the 1945 film. Though usually twinning, the girls similar to us, each had a liking for pink and blue. As pretty pastels, we will always love this marriage of our favorite shades. Lucky for us, Tara Starlet's Loveheart Romper comes in just those very hues of pink & blue. It was meant to be!

Much can be said about the Loveheart romper, but let's try to start at the beginning. Hearts were a huge novelty in the Golden Age, appearing in everything from prints, motifs, sunglasses and even bathtubs (think Jayne's Pink Palace). A romper was a major must have, especially seen in the 1940s through the 1970s. 


The Loveheart romper combines every element you could ever want for an ultra fun and feminine summer look. The adorable heart in the center makes for a Va-Va-Voom vintage aesthetic, with playful buttons worthy of Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. Figure hugging, yet giving, the cotton twill is a breathable blend, perfect for those warm summer days and nights.

The Loveheart romper can be styled a number of ways. From nautical nineteen forties, all the way to disco darling, this piece is promised perfection. Today's mood was a mod mix of fun & flirty, with Juvenile Delinquent meets Lolita, adding some statement hoop earrings and matching scarves. Of course some carnival cotton candy was fresh from the fair with, frosties to finish!
