Throwback Thursday: Toddler Tips on Getting Ready

September 29, 1998.

Hello, fabulouses! Today is Throw Back Thursday and in the Instagram world, TBT is an extremely popular hashtag. Most Thursdays, I post a cute or funny baby picture to my @VintagePassionista account–my mom refuses to participate in the matter because it reminds her that I will be turning 18 in November…shh…don’t tell Momma.

Anyway, I picked out some silly (perhaps even a tad bit embarrassing) baby pictures for this week’s TBT and decided they needed a better caption other than #TBT *insert an excess amount of Emojis here*.

Now, I am going to show you how to get ready for a photo shoot–toddler style.


Step 1: Put on your makeup.

When putting on makeup for a photo shoot, it is important to make sure you look absolutely perfect. Put your eye makeup on heavy and thick. It is kind of like coloring–but it’s okay if you run outside of the lines. If you do not have any blush, improvise with lipstick–rub and smear, rub and smear. Last but not least, apply the lip gloss color of your choice.


Step Two: Get Dressed.

With your makeup done, it is now time to get dressed. Hop into sheer black panty hose and tuck in your shirt–Arts and Crafts with a  mix of dress up professionalism.


Step Three: Accessorize and Strike a Pose.

Choosing the right accessories for a photo shoot is crucial. To hide the “I just woke up and didn’t want mommy to comb my hair” look, simply toss on a hat. Tah Dah–strike a pose! Oh, so totally toddler-tastic!


“Just like mommy! Just like Mommy!”

My mom told me that I would parade around the house with her makeup all over my face and ridiculous dress up outfits talking about how I looked just like mommy. Hm…did I look just like mommy? That is the question.


Stay Fabulous,

Abby Hathorn
