The requisite "glamour shot"

I removed all the nonessentials from my closet, including a box of frames and wedding proofs. Then I thought, what better place for a "glamour shot" than my newly glamorous closet?

Strictly for inspiration: a nudge to fix myself up!

I've had this yard sale frame forever. Someone else's wedding invitation is bordered in petal pink velvet and gilt wood.

I removed the paper, used it as a template for trimming, then popped the proof inside.

What a beautiful picture! My husband has been urging me to get a glamour type of portrait done so he can have it for his office (we skipped the professional portraits when we got married so that's not an option)...you might have just inspired me to actually do it. Sure not feeling glamourous chasing my toddler and pregnant with #2, though I am happier than ever. I chuckled when I read your earlier post about husband happy to see you in fleece, etc.--mine too.
