An abbreviation of the French "bourgeois." A critical term used to describe people, things, and places that are definitively high-class. Something that is affected, inauthentic, gentrified, exclusive, and/or otherwise sheltered from the dirt and grime of the real world.
Dick: Wanna go into the city?
Jane: Yeah, I've gotta get out of this boujee town. It's become so gentrified ever since the new homeowner's association plowed on in. Let's get some tacos from that dude at the corner of Market and 6th.
Kate Spade: Let us go in my dad's Ford Explorer to the Whole Foods/Andronico's/Trader Joe's/(place your pretentious grocer here) on the way home from the symphony.
Jordan Catalano: Yeah right, Kate Spade. I'd rather ride my bike to corner store/farmer's market/etc instead of supporting the overhead of that boujee place.
