Fashion catchphrases come and go. Everyone was obsessed with “fierce” for a while, “fashionista” had its reigning moment, but now Lourdes Ciccone is working hard to add a new term to the world’s vocabulary. She’s been blogging non-stop about the new Material Girls’ Collection for Macy’s, and in between her style stories, It Girl features, and personal pictures, Lola’s introduced a new fashion term to her followers.
“I’m not the designer of the line but my mom and I inspired it and do the styling and the putting together, staying on trend, yadayadayaaaahh. No but for rizzle, it’s a great line and if you guys like it that that is FABNOSITY.”
We’re going to assume that fabnosity is a mix of fabulous and generosity, which would make sense given the context. Despite her genuine attempts to make the term work, this seems like a word that’s limited to the realm of 13-year-old girls who would use it for a week before it dies out again in favor of the latest hot vocab mashup.
