lately i've been wanting to purchase a vintage vanity / dressing table. i think there's something irresistibly sweet and romantic about the look.

here are some glamorous movie stars from the silent film era and golden age of hollywood and their fabulous vanities, dressing tables, and mirrors getting ready for their close up.

i hope the pictures inspire you to create your own glamorous vanity vignettes !
