Conversely, Princess hates it when other people do not use the right word, and to be honest, she is quite snobby about it. For example, there was the book Princess instantly knew she would hate because the description on the back cover involved the phrase “matriarchal mamas.” (Head mother-like mother? Must we sacrifice intelligence for alliteration? Princess thinks not.)
But often the Princess comes across writing that is so fantastic it makes her spend money. Like the way the description “covered in a golden halo of cheese” made her usual indecisiveness disappear one night at Macaroni Grill. Behold, some words Princess loves to use when the time is right: snarky, frothy, and whimsy. (She would quite admire someone who could use all of these words effectively in one sentence.) She was delighted yesterday when she read this:

Crafted in a sumptuous blend of silk and cotton, with dressmaker details including a center-back pleat for a flattering fit and custom ‘button up’ buttons along the front placket. A charcoal rose-print faille lining and the embroidered phrase ‘every cloud has a silver lining’ at the back neck add a touch of whimsy.”
Kate Spade, as if Princess needed another reason to love you! The only thing cuter than the description is the coat itself:

And then there's this little pretty for Princess' inner word-nerd:
It's a clutch. Can you believe it? Is Princess a huge dork for liking this? Would you judge her if you saw her carrying it around? Sadily (or happily, depending on how you answered that question), Princess will not be carrying this around, because well, if you didn't already realize this, she is a teacher and designer book-inspired clutches are simply not in the budget.
