As a general rule, a lady does not take photographs of herself to post publicly for the sole purpose that she may be seen. No matter how pleased she may be with her hair, dress, or overall appearance, she does not resort to taking her own picture and promoting it any more than she would go around saying, "Look at me! Look at me!"
Despite its widely accepted practice, a lady remains clear-sighted in recognizing this act for what previous generations would have called it: vanity.

P.S. I'd like to express my heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you who have written to let me know how much you have missed updates here. I set A Lady's Code aside during a very busy season, but hope to continue posting as time permits. God bless each one of you!
