Because Nothing Says Glamour Like A Sequined Cowboy Hat

3 Feb

Do you remember back in early 1990-something when Glamour Shots were all the rage? I do, and I’m still quite bitter about my mom not taking me to the Augusta Mall for my chance at big hair and thick makeup. Even now, when we all make fun of Glamour Shots, I secretly wish that I had one to look back on (a la my dear friend Carey Anne, whose hair was so big it barely fit in the photo).

When people at school passed out their wallet sized photos, I really just wanted to rip them up in front of their faces. I know that sounds harsh, but I desperately wanted to hand out my own head cocked, hands on a popped collar, with a sailor cap and a big smile on photo. I felt like my mom just didn’t get it. Did she have something against 11 year olds looking 45? Was she too good for sequins and blurry photos? I guess so.

A co-worker told me that Glamour Shots was still in business, so I went to their website. Gone are the cowboy hats and gloves – much to my chagrin. They are having a model search, though. Perhaps my friend Carey Anne can enter and win “most improved” Glamour Shot. (They don’t offer that, but they should.)
