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;)
