For some reason, to me, it's always really entertaining when something totally unrelated to fashion does something fashiony. The latest instance of this: Dictionary.com's word of the day.
It appears that someone over at Dictionary.com is as obsessed with fashion as we are. While I'll admit I don't always open and read the Word of the Day emails I get every morning, I started to notice a couple of them feeling abnormally relevant to my life. A few days ago, it was chambray; today it was peplum. So I quickly pulled up all of my Dictionary.com emails and realized that every one since September 5 has been fashion-themed! Adorable.
So far I've gotten "habilement," "gingham," "toile," "chambray," and "peplum."
Amazingly, that's not even the only way Dictionary.com is celebrating fashion week. On their homepage, they have a slideshow titled "Haute Obscure: 8 Terms for Fashions Gone Extinct," featuring words like "pannier" and "houppelande."
We promise this isn't a sponsored post; we're just genuinely excited. Plus, after writing and editing review after review for several days straight, we need as much fashion vocabulary expansion as we can get.
