Stemming from the French word bourgeoisie. Pronounced "boo-zhee"
Someone who is class-conscious, with educated and discerning tastes, and interested in enjoying the finer things in life. It is definitely not high-class, aristoratic, snooty, or snobbish. “Bourgie” is as much an idea, and a state of mind, as it is an attitude towards enjoying good food, good friends, and good conversation, everyday. It evokes a mood of simple elegance, casual yet sophisticated—modern.
"Check out old girl in the Mercedes. Isn't she from 82nd and International (Oakland)? Oh I guess she's bourgie now!"
