Gold-Collar Aspirationalist

“Walking with a Prada bag on Bloor Street is still more important than the (money) that’s in it”, according to the article Flaunting It in the Sunday edition of The Toronto Star.

If you’ve ever walked down Bloor Street in front of Holt Renfrew – referred to simply as Holt’s for those on the VIP list – you have probably noticed that this is true. This girl still can’t afford to shop there so I guess I’ll never know what it feels like to walk in and have the doorman greet me by my first name. Although after reading the article I now know that his name is Tom.

That’s a whole other side of Toronto I can only *windowshop* at. Call me a glutton for punishment, but it’s still fun – er, at least on most days.

Anyway, the article also speaks of a certain marketing demographic known as the “gold-collar aspirationalist” (who coins these terminologies anyway?) – aka someone who would risk their credit history for a limited edition Louis Vuitton bag. Little old naive me thought that only existed in LA.
