Fashion is full of annoying words.
"Fashion" itself being one of them.
So, being the genius that I am, I thought (probably while in the shower) hey! Let's take some words that people use for other things/made up words and co-opt them to use as fashion words so people don't think I'm dumb every time I talk!
That's right, folks. No more "chic". No more "fab". No more "trendy".
From now on, we're limiting the eyes-glaze-over reaction we get when using these sorts of words in favor of a more refreshing response.
DICTIONARY SWITCH UP NOW GO!
I realize that this word, too, has deeply-ingrained connotations, such as dripping wet hair and sex on the beach. I'm not complaining.
It's like dapper. But not. Because it's dap. And dope.
True. With the print medium slowly suffocating, it may seem futile to replace an oft-used word with an adaptation of one in probable decline but . . .
I really like saying it.
Especially without the 'Y'.
That's super gloss.
I sound pretty cool, huh?
|I guess I was behind here. So sue me.|
My logic behind this one went something like this: People think news is important.
Let's use that.
When I think of "hot", I think of "hot coils" (FUN FACT: I'm weird).
So then I thought, why not replace the "hot" in "Hot Trends" w/ "coil" and do a fun little thing where I make everyone think I have a speech impediment. (say it aloud)
Jk. 'Cause if you say fab, you're obviously immune to the annoyance of others, so just go 'head and ignore this post.
The 'Drope Industry
It's like Star Wars meets slang meets style.
What did I miss?
