    If I want to look loaded, then I apply a fake tan, get my hair done (model nights so free!), and do a french manicure - have mastered this now so don't get them done in a salon anymore. Then I put my best togs on - makes me feel loaded anyway, even if I am drinking Labrini in the pub LOL
    Its nice to be important but more important to be nice!

    I have a pal who looks like she has been dragged through a hedge backwards and she is loaded (thats an easy one to replicate).

    I used to live in Henley, and all the really loaded people there used to walk around in green wellies and smelly tweed jackets all the time. So to look really loaded (as in 'old money') I think I have to dig out my old gardening wellies and an ex-Oxfam tweed jacket, tweed-y skirt, headscarf - you get the picture. No make-up, hair scraped back - hey, this is a really cheap look to acheive!

    I think I'd sooner wear jeans and a clean t-shirt though......

    Test drive a new car and make sure your friends see you. Then tell them you didn't buy it because you wanted one with greener credentials. This works best if you ride a bycicle or use the bus.

    Get similar sized friends to let you borrow clothes. Me and my sis wear eachothers stuff all the time so when I go out I feel like I have new clothes even when they're not mine! Never have to wear the same outfit so look like I've got a very extensive wardrobe!

    don't forget to add a few bits of straw in the top of your wellies then you can say you've been to the stables

    Bring your shopping home from Lidls in M&S or designer carrier bags

    Fake Tan Fake Nails Fake Hair.... Hmm Sounds like Chantelle lol!!
    If you can't make it FAKE It. ( now that can be used in many contents )

    Ebay is FAKELAND! especially if items are dropped shipped from china or anywhere far east .You can buy "Replicas" or Authentic Clothes at good prices
    And still look good.

    Remember though its not the designer clothes that make you look good its how you wear them and carry yourself!!

    Most of the richest people dress down to avoid unwanted attention.

    That would be the one. Yurt = Asian nomad's tent. Therein lies the deception. It works better when spoken. I'll get my coat.

    I have lived in Henley for nine years and have never seen anyone walking around town looking like that! You're all just fuelling your own prejudices against the upper classes, when this thread was actually about people who are loaded, which includes the likes of Wayne Rooney, who most certainly is not upper class!

    Or did you mean in-Arden rather than on-Thames???

    Dunno about In-Arden but the -on-Thames certainly does have welly people At least one chap I went on a few dates with "who's parents were well to do wot wot" was a bit like that... not saying he turned up for dinner looking like it but I've seen his dad poodling round the antique shop in similar attire... wanted a little something for the missus... 2000 later and a deadly horrid ornament was apparently the result All I can say is that a lot of people I knwo who have money don't always have the uhmmmm same taste as me

    Get your OH to dress up in a chauffeurs uniform and get him/her to drive you around whilst you recline in the back seat (I suspect this won't work with a rust ridden 20 year old VW Polo though...)
