Fancy Nancy

Ahem..... - Fancy Nancy has graced our home with her presence.

When I first saw this doll featured on a couple blogs I knew that Miss E. had to have it. Fancy Nancy is a kids character that uniquely dresses with a mismatched flair. My first thought was that Miss E. could have inspired the creation of Fancy Nancy.

Although I did recently draw the line when she insisted on a blue glitter spandex miniskirt and matching top, I generally let her creativity shine through. Ms. E. likes anything sparkly, fluffy, bright or loud and will coordinate clothes that don't really go together, pretty much on a daily basis. She has come up with some interesting Fabulous creations - the teachers can tell that she dresses herself and several people have told me that she will be a famous fashion designer some day.

Back to Fancy Nancy - For a few months I tried to win one to no avail. When my MIL asked what Miss E. may want for her birthday I had the perfect suggestion. Let me tell you this gift was a hit. Miss E. thinks Fancy Nancy is the most beautiful doll created and said that it is the best gift - EVER. I think she even took it to gymnastics with her. Right now I am missing both of them :)
