I didn't understand it and thought 1) she was doing it because she had some sort of term to meet for gaining access to her trust fund (like graduating college), or 2) it was the same sort of drive as any other pretentiousness, but in reverse. Anyway, she was "smart", but I'm not sure that was really why she was the way she was. Honestly, I think she didn't fit in very well in her world and like anybody who doesn't fit in they create some other sort of identity or style. Kind of like what immature HS kids do.

I understand being sensible. I guess I even understand some folks don't care the least about fashion, nor need to. But sometimes I think folks go too far to counter something they don't like...IE: shopping for used clothes rather than just buying new modest, non-flashy clothing and building a wardrobe you can wear a long time.
UMMMM a lot of RICH people buy vintage aka used clothing fact they wear them to the oscars .... and other award shows parties etc.

There's a big difference between a vintage Valentino from an ultra-high end consignment store and a $.25 t-shirt that says "Heinz 57" on the front of it from Goodwill. Just saying.

I know rich people who never leave the house in less than $1,000 worth of clothing and I also know rich people who walk around in Levi's and a shirt they got at some charity walk they did 10 years ago. Figure out what matters to you, and I suggest that what matters should not be pretending you are something you are not.

You don't get rich by being a spendthrift.

This is an elitist comment. You have no idea if he owns cashmere or not. Cashmere is expensive, but where I live it is too hot to wear it. The rich kids here wear a lot of Ralph Lauren, but so do a lot of kids who are not so rich. Most places kids want to look alike.
