15 Things That Make You Feel Fancy For No Reason At All



“Fancy” isn’t just an adjective it’s a feeling (not the British kind where you “fancy someone” and like them). Fancy is a state of mind.

Fancy is in the details. It’s the candles on your dinner table or the flower in your hair. Fancy is a stroll through the park on a particularly sunny day. Fancy is, in a lot of ways totally arbitrary and personal, but there are just those certain things that make you feel fancy because you feel like you want just a little bit above and beyond. There’s cheese and then there’s cheese on a plate.
