So one of my past times/guilty pleasures is a listserv about fashion; on it we we talk about fashion, trends, shopping, you know, girl stuff.

Last week, one of the girls on the 'serv sent an email titled: &*&* (insert my name) know everything about fashion!!! Talk about ego stroking! She then asked me how do I stay so fashionable? Really? I'm fashionable? LOL

As I attempted to answer her question, I thought it would be a great blog post:

I work really hard to be fancy on a daily basis. I like clothes and shoes and bags. I REALLY like looking fantastic. I love to walk into a room and be noticed. Looking great helps my already inflated ego…or maybe my ego is so big because I know I look great. Even on those days if I feel crappy or is just a stinky day in the office – on the outside I still look great. So when I catch my reflection, I smile. I want each moment to be memorable! You never who you will meet, or what will happen and I hate looking back at something like, "Oh gosh, that is what I was wearing?" That wasn't fancy at all.

You can imagine how cheesed up I have been since that email and all of the replies co-signing. It's nice to know that someone else GETS IT.

Thanks ladies ~waving~

(sorry for the pic quality..I’m feeling lazy)

Thursday (Thanksgiving dinner): Taupe scoop neck sleeveless jersey dress, pale pink cardigan with lace detail on back, dark brown wide belt, dark brown thigh high boots. I have had these boots for 5 years--steal in Sorrento for the equivalent of $30...softest leather I have ever felt...regret not buying them in black as well..

COMING UP NEXT WEEK: FANCY does one stay on top of their fancy game?

Don't forget to give thanks on Thursday, whether its for the new Chloe bag you scored on GILT, or for the wonderful people in your life.

Make each moment FANCY!
