How we define being “rich”

My friend was given a Longchamp bag after her grandma received it as a gift and didn’t want it. She marveled to me while visiting New York that every woman here seemed to be carrying it, but that in San Francisco, almost no one had it. While working remotely in my company’s San Francisco office, I saw lots of women wearing it in the city’s financial district. She replied, “That’s because they’re all rich.” If I have a job that pays me enough to be independent and buy a $125 bag, does that make me and any other person “rich” in her eyes?
