Dresstapo

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dress sta po

Sentence: Muffy and Bitsy were snobs and considered themselves the Dresstapo in their workplace. The two of them shared a brain (which usually one of them would forget at home)and felt it their duty to inform other people in the office of the fashion faux pas which were committed everyday. Fashion magazines were the required reading for these Faux-Pair Girls and they patrolled the office religiously to seek out and humiliate the offenders. Then they would feel self righteous about the fact that they were crusaders for a higher purpose, the fashion industry. One day as they rode up in the elevator, a new girl shared their ride. The Decorative Duo sensed fresh meat and lost no time in criticizing the hapless female about her lack of flair. They derided her for her lack of class and elan, about how plain and untrendy her garments were and the fact that she wore no accessories. The girl just smiled smugly and got off on the next floor. When they got to their desks, the Primpcesses were called to the boss' office, where he introduced them to the same fashion victim. Too late they discovered that she was his daughter and their new CEO! They would, however, be the best dressed people at the unemployment office.

Etymology: dress (clothing of a distinctive style or for a particular occasion) & Gestapo (secret police, known for its terrorist methods)

Dresstapo

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dres stapo

Sentence: ChiChi & Fadima set themselves up as the two fashionistas in the accounting office. They set the trends and mocked those who did not follow. They were so vicious about it that the wags in the office dubbed them the Dresstapo or the Fashionazis. Fadima went too far when she ridiculed the new girl, Mensa, in payables. Mensa did not even try to compete in the office fashion Olympics and satoricist that she was, Fadima made fun of Mensa at every opportunity. Wasn't she surprised when Mensa was promoted over her and ChiChi and made their new boss. Yes, accounting can be accrual world, even when you are trendy!

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!

Etymology: Dress (clothing in general, attire,arrange attractively) & Gestapo (the secret state police in Nazi Germany; known for its terrorist methods)

Voguard

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: voh-gahrd

Sentence: Heather and Tonya are all too ready to let every woman in their office know when they have made a fashion faux pas. These voguards have mastered the not-quite-soft-enough whisper to comment on any infraction they see. So beware. These mavens of haute couture could inflict a designer shiner to the reputation of the chic bleak. Heaven help anyone who succumbs to the concept of "Casual Fridays".

Etymology: vogue (something in fashion, as at a particular time) + guard (to keep under close watch in order to prevent escape, misconduct, etc.)
