Shana's Wedding

Holly and I went up to Albuquerque last weekend to see one of our former roommates get married! I was also in charge of photographing the couple's portraits at the temple, and I got some pretty good ones. I couldn't be happier for my friend!

Shop My Closet

Ok! So I've been thinking of doing this for a while, but I wasn't sure how successful I'd be at selling my clothing online. I downloaded the Poshmark app and listed some items. It's all super cheap! Here are some of the items in my Poshmark closet: (Keep in mind that I'm 5'1", so some of these skirts/dresses may not be as long as they seem)

red floral dress $6
pink tweed dress $15
cream vintage blouse $5
gray vintage skirt $5
red skirt $6
blush lace skirt $10
coral skirt $5

And a couple of things I'm planning to add to the closet: 
this skirt
this eyelet shirt 

I'm obviously new to this, so I'm still not sure if poshmark is the best option to sell(??) It seems like the bloggers with 1,000+ followers do really well when they sell their clothes on instagram, so I doubt that I'll have any luck there. Maybe I should create a separate "shop my closet" blog? Have you done this before? Any success? All suggestions are welcome! If I don't sell anything before we move in May/June then I plan to donate all these clothes.

Some News and a Video

from Beverly Houpt on Vimeo.

Alright, so I made a video answering some Valentine/love related questions. I also reveal some big news, so go ahead and watch that. Sorry, it's kind of a long one. But it was originally twice as long. (Yuck!) If you'd like to make your own video, here is the link to the questions I used (I obviously didn't answer all of them). I once told myself that I didn't want to make any more vlogs until I got a new DSLR that has video, but it could be close to another year until I get a new camera. So! I'll just have to continue using my webcam for now.
