"What a blessing to be born with such Sloaney arrogance. Perpetua could be the size of a Renault Espace and not give it a thought."
"Sloaney" comes from Sloane Ranger
, a 1980s term for a particular breed of young upper class person with large amounts of money and confidence, and the desire to show off both. A silly name was typical, particular amongst the female of the species.
The term derives from Sloane Square in London, a favourite haunt for the type. It was popularised by The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook (1982) by Peter York.
