Word of the Day
(adverb) — extravagantly; producing with extravagance or much pomp and profusion; ornately overdone

Word in an Excerpt from my Book (for context, you know):
He somehow knew this was expensive material, the kind Lord Drake would have a cape or robe made from. Why was this penniless orphan wearing a dress from such material? Nicolas didn't know the elder Taiman son provided lavishly for the guest, but he was starting to suspect. He guessed that the cut of the dress was sewn to accent her form and the color was to match her eyes because that's the way Nigel Taiman instructed the dressmaker in Arcana City.
– page 177 of the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods

Your turn! Oh, there are thousands of ways to use this one in a sentence of your own. Pour your creativity out on me extravagantly and abundantly with the comment link below!

Excellent Christmas example, Kimberly! And I've got your name in the Duran Duran tour cap for the drawing. :)
