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")
