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.

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

Mensa did not even try to compete in the office fashion Olympics and satoricist that she was, Fadima made fun of her 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!
