Dresstapo

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dress stappo

Sentence: Moda and Styla were the fashionistas in the office. They not only competed with themselves to capture the latest designs and trends, they were critical of everyone else's attire and appearance. They were the dreaded Dresstapo and loved nothing better than to terrorize the couturely clueless. Their Bible was Vogue Magazine (September Issue is the largest)and they were judge and jury to the unadorned. When they openly snickered at the new girl for her lack of elan, they were horrified to learn that she was their new boss. The Mode Squad started dusting off their resumes!

Debutaunting

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /deb-yoo-TAWN-ting/

Sentence: Having recieved an acedemic scholarship to an affluent university in the early 90's, Clara's family could never have afforded to pay her tuition there, not even for a quarter of a semester. Despite her best efforts to fit in, her 'thrift-shop' wardrobe made her an outcast, and she had to endure constant debutaunting from the other female students. Then, when the grunge fashion trend hit, she suddenly became popular, and those same girls were asking her for fashion tips. That's when Clara decided to focus her degree in business toward the fashion industry — so she could make a career of overcharging women like that for their obsessive preoccupation with fashion.

Etymology: Debutante - a young woman making a debut into society (from French, débuter "make the first stroke") + Taunting - making an insulting gibe or sarcasm; scornful reproach or challenge(possibly from Middle French, tanter "to tempt, try, provoke")
