Noelle regularly stays with us and helps me with my kiddos in exchange for getting to do fun stuff with us. I could tell she was pretty bored the other day when she was here and boredom to a 13 year old is a slow, painful, whiny, death. I couldn't let her die in my care, so we did makeovers and played dress up complete with a photoshoot. Because that's what you do. I got in on the action as well, modeling all my new vintage clothes from the weekend, which I will post later. This is Noelle's spotlight!
I think we adequately made up for years of not getting to play dress up and found a pretty fun way to pass the time. We loved going through my closet for clothes and jewlery that would be cute for her to wear. She tried really hard to get me to lend her my brown belt, but in true older sister fashion I said "Heck no, it's mine, go make mom buy you your own! "
The best part of the day was after I downloaded the pictures and showed them to her. Noelle was thrilled at how they turned out. I don't think she realised that she is truly a natural beauty. She is only wearing eyeliner, mascara and lipgloss. Lucky duck! I cannot wait to do another fashion shoot with her. I'll dress her up and pretend she is my own personal doll. That's normal, right?
