The Oxford English Dictionary describes the meaning of hellacious as “very great, bad, or overwhelming.” Who knew the same word could be used in a positive and negative way? I’ve been trying to use it in my daily conversations because, well, I think the word is hellacious (hellaciously good, that is.) Actually, I found it’s pretty easy to use on the regular: “The traffic was hellacious this morning.” (Bad!) “These shoes are hellacious.” (Good!) “These outfits on Instagram are hellacious.” (Both bad and good!) It happens to be the perfect word to describe some of the remarkable and horrifying pieces that I’ve come across on my feed as of late. So I thought today I’d share all those hellacious things with you—some remarkable and some that have made me think, Damn, that’s a thing! Perhaps you’ll consider buying them too.
Brown Leather Pants
Brown is the new black, my friends. And everything about these (silhouette, style, and color) is phenomenal.
A Floor-Length Leopard-Print Coat
A long-length leopard coat is so wrong it's right. A great way to make a statement!
Dressing Like a Stick of Butter
Can I please be this girl casually cuddling a lamb in the countryside with the chicest little bow in her hair and a vintage-style trunk bag? Okay, so I may not be able to acquire the lamb, but that boxy bag (a huge trend this spring) is now in my cart.
Bows of all shapes and sizes were seen all over the S/S 19 runways and have been dominating my feed one knot at a time. I'll be wearing bows in my hair, embellished on dresses, and on fancy shoes like this these.
Hot-Pink Party Dress
Is there anything more hellacious than this hot-pink dress? We don't think so either.
