(pronounced MAW-kish)

We love this word for some reason. (Maybe because it sounds so British”) Anyway, it can mean either lacking taste, having an unpleasant taste, or being childishly sentimental.

Example sentence: Elle was shocked to see how much her clients fawned over some antique prints they found in a Parisian flea market, for she thought they were unbelievably mawkish.
