A show off? How dare you! This is the privileged friend or family member who’s so low-key they almost had you fooled, until you start noticing the things they say or own. Every item of theirs, right down to a mug or shawl is always boujee; they’ll tell you they love the spontaneity of travelling while on that first class flight; or more blatantly, complain about things a normal person would never gripe about, such as running out of wardrobe space for their new Birkin bag. Well, you can’t show up to their party empty-handed — give ’em more reasons to be #blessed.
