Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 59
umber, shoe whore, polemic, titivate
When you're a shoe whore, you can be stopped in your tracks by nearly any shop window on Newberry Street; the window in question featured a fetching pair of short boots in umber, titivated with beading and embroidery, which entirely distracted me from Harriet's perambulating polemic against the mayor.
