to show no sign(s) of wealth or bling openly but rather possess it in more understated and/or substantial form(s)
Dressed in shorts and sandals, only a keen eye would have noticed the understated $50,000 rolex on his wrist. No one would have known that he owned the Bentley parked outside and the bar we were in. He truly was blingLESS.
A term coined by bedlam, meaning to be without bling.
Steve: Be honest, you bought that Tag Heuer off a sidewalk vendor downtown.
