Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by TheBermudaOnion where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading. Feel free to join in the fun....just click on the link at the beginning of this paragraph. I've been away from this meme for a couple of weeks, and I am so glad to be participating in it again. I wish I had more than 3 words, though...I can't seem to find the list of words that I'd been accumulating. :o(
fichu - n.
a woman's kerchief or shawl, generally triangular in shape, worn draped over the shoulders or around the neck with the ends drawn together on the breast.
surtout - n.
a man's close-fitting overcoat, esp. a frock coat.
fascinator - n.
a scarf of crochet work, lace, or the like, narrowing toward the ends, worn as a head covering by women.
(How very odd that all my words seem to be related to clothing!)
