adj.

Anything that is percieved as "upscale" from a blue-collar point of view. 'Bougie' (pronounced boo'-she) is a hacked truncation of the word Bourgeoisie, which refers to the middle-class in Europe, but refers to a more affluent class level in the United States.

From Wikipedia.org:
In the United States, which lacks strict social classes, Bourgeoisie is sometimes used to refer to those seen as being upper class.
You can sit there and drink your bougie-ass microbrewed beer, but I still prefer my ice cold Coors original.

Adjective meaning extravagent, often to the point of snobbery. Usually used in relation to the conspicuous consumption of the urban upper-middle class. Dervived from "bourgeoisie"

(BOO-GEE) short for bourgeois (french origin meaning snotty sefl-contented middle and upper middle class), anyone pretentious and trying too hard to be classy.

Includes all super-enlightened anarchists, Birkenstock-wearers, Abercrombie and Fitch addicts, and assholes who add random French phrases into their everyday conversation.
Example-

Frank:Hey man watcha doing later?

Walton III:Hmmm. Je ne sais pas. Peut-etre I will drink white wine out of a crystal glass embossed with my family crest and contemplate how lucky I am to have my secondary education. I will then watch an opera. In Italian.

Frank: Sonnnnnn. You're so fuckin' BOUGIE. Later.
