The wealthier few get invited to glitzier parties, live in swankier homes, drive faster cars, and date hotter people. But why should life’s perks accrue to only the fantastically rich? In a world where social standing is determined by perception, Live Like a Millionaire (Without Having to Be One) will show you what it takes to mingle with millionaires, party with plutocrats, and attain the lavish lifestyle on a stipend. Vicky Oliver will teach you how to:

Dress to impress, even if the emperor (you) has no clothes.
Skimp on the items no one will notice anyway.
Achieve millionaire hair for pennies.
Develop frugalista fashion flair.
Amass a $64 million vocabulary.
Use your conversational charm and social media moxie to schmooze your way into the Inner Circle.
Attain the trappings of luxury—no matter your net worth!
