smilefeo commented on the word lux
Oh, this is the love-hate word on my list. I am on Lux, unapologetically feminine.
smilefeo commented on the word hygienia
A marketplace inhabited by mature consumers, who can instantly and expertly point out the various hygiene factors for each and every good, service and experience on offer. They base their knowledge on many years of self-training in hyper-consumption, and on the now almost biblical flood of new-style, readily available information sources and filters helping them to track down the Best of the Best, the Cheapest of the Cheapest, the First of the First.
smilefeo commented on the word oneiromancy
The practice of predicting the future through interpretation of dreams.
Greek oneiros, dream + –MANCY.
smilefeo commented on the list smilefeo-s-words
Psychology. The illusion of having already experienced something actually being experienced for the first time.
An impression of having seen or experienced something before: Old-timers watched the stock-market crash with a distinct sense of déjà vu.
Dull familiarity; monotony: the déjà vu of the tabloid headlines.

smilefeo commented on the word masstige
A retail category that includes relatively low priced goods that come with a relatively prestigious brand name; goods and services priced between low-end, mass market items and high-end, prestigious items. Also: mass-tige.
Target was one of the first to push masstige with its introduction of Mossimo and Michael Graves products. Sephora is also a great example, as it offers high-end beauty products at accessible prices in a large number of locations, many of them urban, streetfront properties. Other burgeoning masstige retailers include Kohl's and Wal-Mart.
There's a second sense of this blend of mass and prestige that shows up only rarely in the written record: a fashion statement that mixes both mass-produced and prestigious clothes.
