WORDS: New Words (Inspired by Gail Carriger's Books)

While reading/listening to a new series I discovered a few new words that I really like and would like to take note of. I will be trying to replace other words in my vocabulary with these, because they sound elegant.

Decolletage (cleavage / low neckline) - dé·colle·tage

dāˌkäləˈtäZH,ˌdekələ-/

Reticule (purse) - ret·i·cule

ˈretiˌkyo͞ol/

noun

1. historical a woman's small handbag, originally netted and typically having a drawstring and decorated with embroidery or beading.

2. variant spelling of reticle.
