btw, i don't know if you've noticed [cause it seems like you havent come visit my blog since I told you about that guy who left a comment} but i'm starting a photography business. Chloe would be the perfect person to take pictures of...especially in that outfit. If you ever want her pictures taken I would do it for free. just let me know.
