Status: Real Life

Heard on Real Housewives of New Jersey:

“I don’t want to live in somebody else’s house — that’s gross. ”

Apparently status in her group, or her aspirative group,  is accorded to those who can buy all things new — and luxurious, by the way.

I was thinking that I live almost exclusively in someone else’s clothes. Among my group of friends, there’s status accorded to those who can find stylish clothes for cheap.

The idea of status is no different; the means to status is almost diametrically opposite.
