The French Have A Word For It

Our dear friend Michelle's birthday is in August and chosing a card for her can be complicated by the words used on said card.  She's pretty fluent in English (and French and German and Japanese) but to make sure she "gets it" I often translate it into French.  

Here is the card in English - Sassy, Classy (open) and still kickin' assy!   I didn't think that the concept "sassy" existed in the French language, but it does!

French version:  Encore coquetterie, ultra chic!
Et encore avoir un retour de manivalle!  

My Larousse English - French dictionery was up for it with ease.  Since it's 3 1/2 in. thick, I'm not really surprised...
