Although you may think you’re just a run-of-the-mill person who more often than not gets to be included in or invited to fancy events where you accidentally run into a celeb, chances are you’re truly fancy. No, this isn’t one of those silly BuzzFeed quizzes; these five signs are genuine tell-tale signs you’re really living it up, high-class style, so keep reading, tick the boxes and who knows, you may just be surprised with how truly fancy you are.

5 Sure Signs You’re Fancy AF


If you own a yacht and know your way around it – you’re fancy. To other people, you may even seem like a person posing for a catalog in your perfect chunky beige sweater, something along the lines of the fictitious Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker. Even if you don’t own one, if you have friends who are passionate sailors and they whisk you away to an impromptu cruise along the Mediterranean coast – you are right up there with the likes of Reese Witherspoon. Hanging out in a picture-perfect dress or even a two-piece completed with the perfect kimono, sipping champagne and cocktails with your girls – this also counts.

If you tick any of these boxes, make no mistake about it – you so fancy!

Invites to big events

Ok, you just happen to find an invite to an NYC rooftop party or an event for a large corporation such as Google, Microsoft, Stella McCartney, Snapchat or Cosmopolitan. And sure, you accidentally bump into a CEO, a model, fashion designer or even an actor – just another day, happens to everyone, right? Wrong! Most people see this kind of stuff only when watching reruns of Gossip Girl, so if you’re rubbing shoulders with famous people at a catered party with experts in mixology from NYC, sipping world-renowned cocktails made by the iconic Alchemiq artists – you are beyond fancy.

Runway shows

It may not be the front row, but you’re close enough to catch a glimpse of Anna Wintour or even recognize her perfume as she passes you by. Maybe you’re even so close to the runway that you get to catch every imperfection and make snarky comments about models with your girls. Finally, you didn’t even have to pull a lot of strings to score those seats, right? Well, in that case, we’re sorry to break it to you, but you are so fancy it’s almost unbearable. Even Samantha Jones had to pull strings to get the first row, so if you’re even in the second – well, you already know what that means.

Girl you fancy!

You own a Birkin

This should be interesting. According to a little experiment done by Daily Mail, the Birkin bag may just be a myth. Reportedly, they sent ordinary women to three Hermes stores in Manchester, United Kingdom, and London, to try and buy one of the most exclusive bags ever made. Not only did they walk about the store(s) empty handed, but the salespeople wouldn’t even give them a chance to see, let alone touch and purchase the elusive bag. At this point, it’s safe to say that the Birkin isn’t even a bag, it’s more like a notoriously secluded celebrity that you never get to see. So, if while others are struggling and crying themselves to sleep waiting for their name to go up the wait list, you’re strutting around town with a Birkin like it’s an H&M shopping bag – do we really need to spell it out?

You are FANCY.


You walk around the Gucci store like it’s your home. Actually, it doesn’t have to be a Gucci store per se, it can be Prada, D&G, Dior, Chanel, take your pick. The moment you enter the store all the salespeople come to greet you, (you’re on a first name basis with them of course), and you get to try the latest designs and twirl around as they gush and tell you how stunning you look. Of course, you engage in small talk as well as discuss some personal stuff, and you didn’t even have to make an appointment; you just thought of popping by and seeing what’s new, so you did. At this point, there’s no need to say the word, you know what you are.



So what do you think? How did you do? Are you fancy AF?
