  • I have some family that is very well off, however, they worked their whole lives to get where they are at now. I don't get to see them much except for at holidays and I normally dress up but that is just because its the holidays not because of how much money they have.

  • i have some family who are very well off i don't dress any differently when i see them. they know me very well and i apparently dazzled them with all my hopes and dreams for mine and my daughter's future. though they also see me as very stubborn but i get along well with them and the family i have that are not so well off i still dress the same and they are also close to me i love them and i always offer to help them a lot too i always want to help them.

  • Our family is all across the board.... from extremely wealthy to extremely poor. I don't think anyone cares what anyone else wears at family functions. I know that I don't.... Just wear what you are most comfortable wearing and don't worry about it regardless of which side you fall.

  • Our families are all over the financial board. we treat them all the same. when we go visit, we stay in a Hotel. We dress the same as we always do. we drive the same car too.

  • Lucky US! We are the have nots in my family. I don't care how I dress~I think it's stupid. My brother and his wife are wildly wealthy. In fact I work for them! I don't think it matters who has what. I think what matters is how ppl treat eachother! No matter how much or what they have!!!

  • I have some of both. No I don't dress a certain way depending on who I'm around. I dress the way I like all the time. I live to be me not them.

  • I do have family that are super rich. Both on DH's side & on my side. I do feel as if i have to tone down my bohemian style a bit when i am around them. They are all super conservative, southern baptists. If they knew how Hindu i was, they'd be trying to "save" my ass so fast. Anyhow, they have my DD on a trust fund, so yes...i am going to make sure they like me. They were kind enough to add my DD to their family trust fund, who is not even a blood relative.


    My rich family, no...they are Argentine & LOVE my hippie, bohemian fashion sense and tend to be more like me & are much more open minded than the Southern Baptists on DH's side. So, i can be %100 myself around them.
