I'm trying to do fancy in small ways. I wear liquid eyeliner. I've started wearing red lipstick. I will occasionally don a cutsey top and a pair of platform wedge heels to go out with The Wonder Hubby.
However, every once in awhile, I pull a box down from the top shelf of my closet and unwrap THEM. My red, sequined ballet flats. They are my secret Fancy Weapon. I never feel quite so girly, so special, so FANCY as when I put on my sparkly shoes. They make TWH cringe. He knows when I put on my sparkly shoes I'm feeling extra sassy.
There's a little extra bounce in my step. An extra twinkle in my eye.
When I put on my sparkly shoes, I'm FANCY. I'm sassy. I'm sexy.
No one can make me feel like less in my sparkly shoes.
