I am enjoying the Blogging from A-Z challenge a great deal, and have read some wonderful and creative posts.
Today we have the letter ‘D.’ Now I toyed with dainty and doily, both pretty, frilly kinds of words but instead have decided to go with dowdy.
This is a grey, miserable kind of word. An out-of style, frumpy, word that conjures up images of a scruffy, shabby, downtrodden woman (for some reason dowdy is rarely used to describe men)!
It can also be used to describe the decor of a room; the dingy, grimy, miserable, morose kind of room that is depressing ,and gloomy, probably like a lot like the occupant!
