This is part of our 100 Things in 2014 challenge. Here’s the full list.
Who doesn’t like to dress up?
One of the kid-oriented stage shows we had tickets to this year was Fancy Nancy, which if you’ve ever seen the books, you’ll realize it’s all about dressing as magnifique as you know how. Ooh la la!
All of us busted out our most sparkly accessories, and we made sure to park six blocks from the theater so the whole city could see us.
Lucy in particular had a lot of fun with accessories – she’s been stockpiling them for this moment. Notice the “fur” cape. Will’s no slouch, though. He rocked the sequinned-pink-tie-and-fedora look, and pulled it off pretty well.
In the end, disappointingly, we were the only family to dress up for the show. (Did anyone else read the books?) Sure, there were plenty of kids bedazzled with sequins, but all the parents came in T-shirts and jeans. Mauvaise odeur, mes amis.
