Thursday word of the day : chichi

This recent image by the Satorialist seemed perfect for this post, plus I was excited to include a trendy man for a change. Ahh… those beautiful Parisians, I wouldn't mind being affected by their trends.

chichi \SHEE-shee\, adjective:
Affectedly trendy.

From the French word that literally means "curl of false hair"; used figuratively in the phrases faire des chichis, "to have affected manners, to make a fuss"; and gens à chichis, "affected, snobbish people." Sometimes spelled "chi-chi."
