Created by: petaj

Definition: n. A person in deep denial who crams into their old clothing which is now somewhat unflattering, and perhaps several sizes too small. v. To wear clothing from your "younger days" just to prove that you still got it.

Pronunciation: mutt-n-floor-nt

Sentence: Once more, Esme, an incorrigible muttonflaunt, was rummaging in the bottom of the trunk for the midriff top and hotpants from her youth. When Ken walked in all he could see was her saggy derriere clad in a g-string wobbling about on top of her thigh-high-booted legs, with clothing being tossed in the air.

Etymology: mutton dressed as lamb (an older person wearing youthful clothes) + flaunt (to show off)
