Oh dear, I seem to have mistakenly posted today's post last week.
Ah well. Perhaps it's time to come back to the very first Spot the Frippet, which was, um, a frippet.
A frippet, in case you've never wondered, is a flamboyant or frivolous young woman. Some say she has to be pretty to be a frippet, but then the young are almost always beautiful.
Yes: great fun to spot!
Spot the Frippet: a frippet. This word sounds like something from the 1700s: lawksamercy what a malapert frippet! but it's actually a twentieth century word. No one knows where it came from, but I would guess that the word frippery can't be too distant a relation.
