Lively young socialite Nancy Carrington-Chambers has always believed an excellent sense of style and strict attention to detail are what it takes to succeed, but her own husband, Todd, is showing symptoms of incurable tackiness, so Nancy flees their McMansion for her posh San Francisco apartment. She knows her event planning company, Froth, is a real winner, but she must prove herself by reinventing the turgid Barbary Coast Historical Museum fundraiser. Luckily, Nancy now has the perfect assistant. Derek Cathcart is British, impeccably dressed, gorgeous, and clearly gay - so why does Nancy find him so attractive?
Before Nancy can unravel her feelings, her irresponsible cousin, Birdie, abandons her little daughter with Nancy and takes off. Nancy, Derek, and Eugenia make an unlikely "family", but strangely, it seems incredibly right. Now, Nancy's parents are pressuring her to return to Todd, and she still has to pull off a spectacular party. For someone who's always known exactly where she's going, Nancy is in dangerously uncharted waters.
Irresistibly funny and romantic, Fancy That shows that happiness and love - just like fashion - aren't about playing it safe.
