Chic-tionary is a darling little dictionary of fashion and beauty words you never knew existed. It takes its inspiration from the peculiar and amusing language of fashion people like Tyra Banks (smize), Man Repeller (arm party), and André Leon Tally (dreckitude), and contains more than two hundred made-up acronyms, abbreviations, and afflictions that are certain to leave an indelible glitter stain on the English language.

Have you ever tried something on at a department store without bothering to hang it back up (fit it then quit it)? Or been saved by a Sephora when a last-minute invitation strikes and you’re without makeup (serendipretty)? Are you a dark-haired maiden who’s tired of letting blondes believe they have more fun (brunetiquette)?

Other terminally chic terminology includes:

accessorcism
What needs to happen when you feel possessed to wear every piece of jewelry you own, all at once.

bangover
The morning-after remorse that occurs after getting bangs that are too short and don’t behave.

dresspassing
When another woman invades your territory by showing up in the same dress as you.

fête-abolism
The phenomenon in which calories consumed while standing and making small talk at a fête don’t count.

ideal body weight
Bradley Cooper on top of you.

prisoner of wardrobe
What you become when you turn down an invitation.

. . . And more!
