Sometimes you need to dress to the nines, but other times you should look like you only have $9.

I think the message here would be to treat EVERYONE with courtesy and respect because you just never know who that person might be. I have a friend who is worth 12 million( give or take a few thousand dollars) who ,if you didn't know her ,you would think she fit right in with the clan from honey boo boo !

I have two ways I dress--shorts and T-shirt for warm weather, and sweats in cold weather. Anyone doesn't like the way I'm dressed and want to judge me because of it, that's their problem. I don't dress to please anyone but myself, and I don't need anyone's approval but God's.

Who the heck needs a $38,000 handbag anyway?  That's pretty over the top!!!  Can you spell "GLORIOUS EXCESS"????

Businesses in Aspen, Colorado, as a rule, treat every shopper with respect regardless of how you are dressed.  At one particular shop, the horse that the shopper rode in on was allowed to come into the store as it was a very cold and snowy day.   I find that how I'm dressed reflects the weather rather than my bank account.  I find that people who wear over priced footwear in inappropriate weather just look foolish, not well to do.

She went in while the store was trying to close and prepare for an event. Sorry Oprah, world doesn't revolve around you. Should have gone in earlier or come back another day.

why the hell is racism even mentioned? Seriously. It's ridiculous for the racism card to be played everytime you turn around! until the media stops making a big deal out of nothing (she was dressed down in a high end shop. of course they are gonna treat her like she cant afford it), this country will never be able to move on...

Oprah is a liar.

The The other clerks statements and the security cams showed the girl was innocent and oprah made it up.

Oprah looks at a $38,000 handbag and on the same page you can look up how to eat for $1.50 a day..

Oprah needs to learn when and how to shop. This isn't the first time that a high end store didn't cater to Her Highness.

Always let the salespersons UNDERESTIMATE you. If you go 'dressed to the nines', the salespersons will not work with you on any price breaks.

 

And if you're shopping in a high-end shop, let the sales person who spoke & greeted  you FIRST get the sale-especially a big sale - it'll infuriate the others who ignored you.

As long as it's not something that the people of Walmart wear you should be fine.

My husband and I wanted to purchase a cadillac. I had on jeans and he had on coveralls. The first dealership frowned and barely let us drive a loaner car, not even a cadillac. Second dealership said we could pick and drive. I saw the car I wanted, but it belonged to the owner. He gave me the keys. Guess who got our $$ ?

If it had happened with a white person nobody would be talking about it. In addition, people outside the USA have a different mentality than people in the US. Their daily lives don't revolve around the same race bull .... as Americans enjoyed so much to talk about it. If you go to any very expensive place abroad, make sure that you dress appropriate for the place and the occasion. Don't try to show-up a few minutes before the place is about to close dressed less elegant than the people who work there. This is the rule of law outside the US. If you don't like it, STAY HOME.

"When browsing the 'silver wear' in Tiffany & Co."?  Really?  Try "silverware".

If snooty salespeople who make minimum wage don't like the way I look I'll be happy to take my business elsewhere.

When I took my Mother and son to Geneva, Switzerland my son decided to walk into one of the most expensive jewelry stores there just to see what they would do.  Well, he walked around without anyone approaching him but he was being following very closely.  He was not refused service as he did not ask to see anything.  I told him that was not a good thing he did.  And we are working class without all the fame and fortune.  I just think that in other countries it is how one conducts oneself and not expecting the royal treatment.  After all it is not America.

Articles like this are to journalism as religious statues sculptured out of feces are to art....

Only one thing determines how I dress when I shop...what gun am I carrying concealed?  If I'm carrying my Walther PPK then it's a light beach shirt not tucked into my jeans.  If I'm carrying my Sig-Sauer full-size pistol then it's accessorized with a leather jacket.
