Looking like a Vanderbilt on a VanDeKamp budget

You've seen her before: Perfectly coiffed hair. Impeccably dressed. Sensible, yet sophisticated expensive shoes ... and you know she's "old money." Can you cultivate that look or must you be born into it?

I love the polished, unfussy look of the monied set. I'd like to find out how I might get that look ... though I don't have the money ... or the connections ... or the leisure time ... or the delusions of grandeur.
I'm not talking about trashy Paris Hilton. I'm thinking more Kennedy or Astor or Vanderbilt.
What should I be looking for? A classic cut? Certain brands? Can I get them at the thrift store? Are there good imitations?
