Giddy as a Preschooler!

OMG...Miss Peach and I are beside ourselves! I saw in the Sun Times that the Joffrey Ballet is holding their first ever costume sale. How cool is that?!? (I don't know if you know this...but my dream job has always been to be a costume designer for the ballet? Got my first BFA in fashion design.)

In a nutshell, The Joffrey Ballet is a wonderful dance troupe that has been in Chicago for 53 years. Is it ridiculous that I am just giddy about this? When I showed the article to Miss Peach, her mouth hit the floor, and she could not stop inhaling:O She took me by the hand and said "Come on Mama...let's go shopping!" (The sale isn't until the end of the month.)

I know the costumes will be too big for her (typical sizes are between a 2-4). It's dress up stuff, and I think she'll have a blast and we might find some fun stuff! Prices will range from $25-$100. I told her we could buy one, maybe two things. I mean, I'm not made of money, and this is the kind of thing that can easily get out of hand fast:/

I kinda wish I hadn't pulled the trigger on my grown up Halloween Party costume* (remember I always go to a rockin' Halloween Party?) Seriously, talk about major cool costume potential for Halloween '10. It's not too early for that...no?

*I will post pics of this years costume once I pull the whole thing together and try it on;)

  1. Wow! I would be all over that. And if there is anything that would be appropriate for ballroom dance for a 10 year old? I would totally paypal you some cash to grab it! We're looking for some good "bones" that can be *converted* into cha cha and samba ensembles : )

  5. Oh have fun! My little guys are not too into dress ups (except for trying to wear my shoes and my husband's). Maybe if I get a girl one of these days . . .

  7. How cool is that! There are a couple of theaters around here that do sales from time to time of their old costumes and I have always wanted to to, but somehow never have.

    Get some goodies!!

  10. OMG! I neeeeeed a tutu like NOW! That's what I always wanted but alas I never had a ballet recital. Our recitals were for tap and jazz. BOOOOO!!! I didn't know you had multiple BFAs. Pretty cool! There's this area of Atlanta called Little 5 Points where it seems every store has tutus but they're all like $50... that seems a bit excessive... HOWEVER methinks I must find a way to be a ballerina for halloween... & Christmas... & thanksgiving.
