Regaliac

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: re gay lee ak

Sentence: Marisa was a regaliac for sure. She had an outfit, with accessories, for every mood, occasion, national holiday, season and impulse. To say she was overdressed and over the top would be putting it mildly. For instance, she wore her clotheshorse outfit going to the races;when out shopping, she had a dress made of credit cards all linked together and for a wine-tasting, she had an ensemble made entirely of corks. Why she had even bought herself an outfit for her own funeral...a stunning little black dress with grave accents and a hat with a horse-drawn cortege around the brim. Hopefully it would still be in style by then!

Etymology: regalia (especially fine or decorative clothing)& maniac (an insane person)
