So the hip new thing, apparently, is big scarf/hood combos. Which is fine, I guess, if not my cup of tea.
But they are calling them snoods. And this is crazymaking to me, because that word is already in use, dammit
, and not for that.This
is a snood. This
, too. See Wikipedia re: provenance and history of the term.
!= snoods. They are big stupid tube-hoods. Or something. Not snoods. Because snoods are a different thing, dammit.
But no, someone repurposed the word snood, and now when people see it, they think big stupid tube-hoods.
And so when they read the description of a certain character at a ball (yes, in Shayara, no, not in MEfA) wearing a snood, they're going to think that's awfully informal with her gown. When dammit it is not a big stupid tube-hood it is a delicate bit of netting with sparklies and a velvet bow.
...sometimes I write these scenes just because I covet the wardrobe. What? I'm under five feet tall, I can't do
ballgowns. (This one has layers of very soft leather, velvet, and heavy silk, all in shades of dark red. I want.)
Anyway. Snood. It is already a thing. Don't you forget it.
EDIT: This is the goddamn Batman.
You gonna tell him he's wearing a snood?
