Retrousseau

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: reh tro ooh SO

Sentence: My mother bribed me to help her clean out her basement by saying that I could take whatever I wanted. I found what amounted to a retrousseau of the 80's clothes that she wore in college. Although I wasn't interested in wearing any of them, I knew they would be valuable to someone. Sure enough, the vintage clothing store gave me $300!

Etymology: retro + trousseau (collection of clothing)

Pronunciation: dee mode er lode

Sentence: When Wendy started wearing her Mom's bell bottom pants, mini skirts and Indian guru patterned shirts, she realized she had hit the Demoderlode of high fashion. What worked for her Mom thirty to forty years before had all of a sudden become trendy, de riguer and happening now. Luckily they were the same size and even her cool folks thought she suited the swinging sixty looks. Thank Goodness, her Mom never threw anything out!

Etymology: demode (out of fashion;outmoded) & Motherlode (the main vein of ore in a deposit;the Bonanza;the main prize)
