This Louise Linton woman is exactly the kind of rich person who gives being rich a bad name.  People like her are the reason people hate the rich.

She was born rich, has no talent (she's had minor roles in a few "straight to video" type movies, and claims to be an "actress"), married richer.  She also has a "law degree" from the sort of University that is little more than a diploma mill.

Okay, so she does have a talent- seducing older, lonely, very unattractive rich men.  I guess that's a talent.

The name dropping the expensive designer stuff her husband bought her, in an economically depressed state like KY shows an appalling lack of class and an utter lack of awareness. 

car:  #2002 Chevy Silverado
Shoes: #sandals from Daiso (that is not a designer brand, it's a Japanese "dollar store.")- $2
Pants: #Polo Shirt from Fallas Paredes- $3
Socks: #bought from JC Penny in 2004 for 77 cents.
Shirt: #shorts from Ollies Bargain Outlet- $3

Yeah, that's right.  Walmart is just too expensive for my tastes. :)

My grandmother always said that you couldn't buy class, and Louise Linton is a classic example of the principle in action. It's OK to own expensive things, but bragging about them stupid. It is in incredibly poor taste and there's a practical reason for being modest or even casual about symbols of wealth: if you flaunt your belongings, there are people who can and will attack you for them. Insurance can be useful in such situations, but only if you're alive to collect on it.

If the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror is too far in the past to be a meaningful warning against public conspicuous consumption, people with money should at least take note of the way Kim Kardashian was robbed while traveling, in a place she felt safe. Based on what was published in the French press it was an inside job. A person with intelligence and wisdom can learn from this incident, although Louise Linton obviously did not.

Talent-wise, attracting men who are old and rich worked out well for Anna Nicole Smith, at least for a while, and until Louise Linton is discarded for a newer model (which might not happen) she's going to enjoy a far more comfortable and luxurious life than most people can afford. It's one of the reasons I politely dispute the notion of Louise Linton not really having a profession: she's clearly made a success of the oldest one in the world.

There is a book series (and it was a movie) Confessions of a Shopaholic, or something like that.  The character says that she tears the tags out of inexpensive clothes so she can pretend not to remember the brand if she is ever stopped for the magazines that do the head to toe of what someone on the street is wearing. Now with instagram we can do that on our own.

I will say that your  grandmother would probably have a heart attack at instagram. Her hashtag use is pretty much status quo among fashion blogger.  And the particular things she hashtagged. OMG #goals   (ugh)

My main issue with her hashtag is that she's travelling in an official capacity. This likely wouldn't have been a story had she not responded to a taxpayer's question with such a snobbish response about how she's "sacrificed."

My grandmother died in '97 and I'm grateful she never saw such nonsense.

To my grandmother, class had nothing to do with what you own, what your net worth is, what your income is, or how you earn it. Belongings, after all, can always be destroyed or taken away. Money and power amplify the character of the person who has them, but they don't change the essence of who that person is. A person can receive an unexpected large inheritance or be completely wiped out by a stock market crash, and when they wake up the next morning they're still wearing the same skin. Indeed, if something happens that radically changes a human being's economic situation, they generally do things that restore them to something closer to their most appropriate and comfortable socioeconomic status within seven years.

My grandmother said to me that class is all about how you treat other people: what your responsibilities to them are, how well you fulfil those responsibilities using the resources you've got, and whether you expect to be compensated for it. Everything else, she wrote off as being due to differences in culture, family tradition, and personal economics.

I follow a few (ridiculous) fashion bloggers just because the discussion on "GOMI" is so amusing that it is a source of entertainment.

Linton's behavior has been widely reported on. You don't have to follow her to know how crass she is.

Shirt: consignment store. Dunno the brand and can't see the tag.
Pants: Banana Republic outlet. Before anyone deals out a facepunch, they are almost a decade old and in excellent shape.
Shoes: Vans. The only reason I remember that is because they have a very distinctive pattern that I love.

I'm working the runway with a sweeeeet ensemble from the summer Walmart catalog.

 Fake camo Crocs, store brand gray nylon shorts, a Fruit of the Loom black Tee, and some interesting bumble bee stripey briefs that give me that, Homer Simpson meets Doctor Seuss, vibe. Not quite a homeless/ Joe Dirt look, but nothing you would ever want to drag home to introduce to mom and dad. Total cost? about $26 USD.

If anyone suggests some fashion-y thing for me, I tell them that it wouldn't fit in with my carefully-cultivated normcore aesthetic.

Hah! Most of my work outfits are "People felt sorry for me 10 years ago when I had my first office job and was dirt poor, and gave me random stuff which I took good care of". My casual wardrobe is "These free 10K race T-shirts go great with these elephant print pants I picked up in Thailand for a couple of bucks!"
